NBA stars Dirk Nowitzki of the Dallas Mavericks and Vince Carter of the New Jersey Nets both play the Saxophone..
Vince Carter plays the saxophone and was a drum major in his high school band. He also received a music scholarship offer to Bethune-Cookman.
Holger Geschwindner, 58, who is the mentor of Dirk Nowitzki, gave Nowitzki a saxophone as a gift.
Do you think that after the NBA, they might try to do what Wayman Tisdale has done and become musicians? With Nowitzki's work ethic, I think he could become a great sax player, no matter what style he chooses to play. Vince Carter will probably become great too but might not always give his 100%, only when he feels like it and might not always give it his all with a record label and ask to be released of his contract.
