Dirk Nowitzki hilariously breaks heart of New York Knicks fan (Video)

The struggling New York Knicks were this close to defeating the Dallas Mavericks on Monday night. But an ugly shot which included an even uglier bounce on the rim from Dirk Nowitzki preserved a victory for the Mavericks, breaking the hearts of Knickerbocker faithful.

Understandably, many at the game took it hard – but few more than this guy who seemingly went through about 18 emotions before the video came to an end.

As you can see in the video, the fan is quite excited when he sees the shot from Nowitzki bounce off the rim. I mean – the chances of it going through the hoop at this point are relatively minimal, so he can breath a sign of relief. It wasn’t going to hit the backboard and bounce through the net. It certainly wasn’t going to bounce off the rim again and then fall in – right? RIGHT?! Oh my goodness – it bounced off the rim! And it looks like it’s going to go in!!! OMG NO.

And that was pretty much every emotion worn by that fan in the span of two seconds.
