Dirk Nowitzki has a newfound freedom now that he’s retired.

According to Bleacher Report, the former Dallas Mavericks player has gained 15 pounds since retiring in April: “I have not worked out once. … I’ve had ice cream almost every day.”

Dirk retired last month after playing 21 seasons in the NBA. He made a season-high 30 points in his final NBA game on April 9, with the Mavericks beating the Phoenix Suns 120-109.
