What do Dirk Nowitzki & Plano Pawn Shop have in Common?
So what in the world would Dallas Mavericks legend, & NBA great, Dirk Nowitzki & Plano Pawn Shop have in common? Way more than you would ever think!
The start of the 2018 NBA season will be Dirk Nowitzki’s 20th season in the NBA. Not only is this a HUGE milestone for an NBA player, but it is also a HUGE milestone for ANY professional athlete. Between injuries and statistical collapses, that most athletes endure, the average career of an NBA player is a mere 4.8 years according to Business Insider. Dirk has over 4 times the average!
Likewise, Plano Pawn Shop has beaten the odds and provided the city of Plano and the greater Dallas area with the best service of a local pawn shop for 40 years this year! JP Morgan Chase reports that the average lifespan of a small business is only 5 years. Just like our Dallas hero, Dirk Nowitzki; Plano Pawn Shop has crushed the average!
All about the Team
Dirk Nowitzki came to a Dallas Mavericks team that had a 10-year run of being in the bottom of the NBA rankings. He came into the Dallas Mavericks with Steve Nash (from Phoenix). The two joined Michael Finely to form the “Big 3” and lead Dallas to many winning seasons and playoff births.
The same can be said for Plano Pawn Shop. Stay with me now. Plano Pawn has had many stellar employees or “team members.” It was not until Plano Pawn Shops own “Big 3” of Larry, RJ & Jake; when the business really took off. The team was able to come together and help many people in need of quick cash with collateral-based pawn loans.
The Good Times & the Bad
Not every season for Dirk Nowitzki was good. In fact, early on, the trio of Dirk, Nash & Finely was routinely booed on their home court at Reunion Arena. The trio had to fight through self-doubt and other obstacles before they saw some success.
Similarly, Plano Pawn Shop has been there for many citizens of Plano and the greater Dallas area through the worst of times as well as their best of times. Some of the best experiences include helping young couples pick out a wedding set. They start out their lives together by saving money over retail jewelry outlets. Another would be helping a struggling musician get the guitar of their dreams by making payments through our generous 1 Year Layaway. The good times are certainly more enjoyable but are no more important than the bad times.
Some memories that immediately come to mind for hard times are when we help someone who just lost a loved one and they would like to sell their items to help them move on in life. Or when a big company is slow to pay a small business owner and that owner still needs to pay his employees. We are there to provide him with a quick cash loan until his big check comes in.
When it is all said and done, Plano Pawn Shop is there through thick and thin.
