Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki reacted with sadness when asked about the suicide bomb attacks that killed at least 34 people Tuesday at an airport and during rush hour on a rush-hour metro train in Brussels.

“It’s a sad, disappointing world almost these days,’’ Nowitzki said. “It’s not like it’s the first time.

“It’s been in Turkey a couple of times the last few weeks.’’

Nowitzki, who hails from Germany, feels for the people who are killed that are minding their own business in these terror attacks.

“The sad and disappointing part is that it’s always innocent people,’’ Nowitzki said. “It’s not like its two armies fighting against each other.

“It’s always the innocent people who lose their lives going on a train or flying somewhere on a trip. So yeah, it’s really heartbreaking, but unfortunate that’s the world we’re living in right now.’’
