    Dirk Nowitzki may have gotten married in Kenya

    Did Dirk Nowitzki get married? It's hard to tell, between his tweets about NBC's much-criticized Olympic coverage, and the Dallas Mavericks' refusal to comment on his marital status. Until we know for sure, we do have this pretty cool picture of Dirk and his fiancée — presumably in Kenya — at some sort of ceremony.

    Newstime Africa, via I Am a GM, has their take, currently unconfirmed by Dirk (who is still tweeting about the Olympics):

    German superstar Dirk Nowitzki proposed to his long-time girlfriend Jessica Olsson during Valentine's Day, and zipped it up over the weekend when he officially married Jessica in a traditional African wedding ceremony held in Kenya. The Dallas Mavericks superstar said that the wedding is the first of the two wedding ceremonies that they've planned to stage in their programme. "This is one of two wedding set-ups that we have planned to undertake and the ceremony has been very beautiful," said Dirk. The seven foot tall NBA player delivered the bride price as it's expected in a befitting traditional African ceremony in Kenya.

    Considering that Dirk's quote about the "beautiful" ceremony hasn't shown up anywhere else, we're left to be a little dubious. But Nowitzki did propose to his fiancée in February, and with the NBA's training camp still two months away, it feels like as good enough time as any to tie the knot. And, with Nowitzki's considerable compensation culled from his 14 years with the Mavericks, it seems more than reasonable that Nowitzki would work up a two-part wedding jaunt, with one trip to his fiancée's native Kenya and presumably a move to Germany to follow.

    Of course, this could all be a giant mix-up, or Dirk having some fun with Newstime Africa. Or, the start of a lifetime of wedded bliss.

    Either result, it's a pretty cool picture Future or Present Mr. and Mrs. Dirk Nowitzki.

    Well at least I hope she doesn't have issues like Nowitzki's-ex who had been arrested on fraud charges and robbery if this news story is true.

    Dirk just laughed this off. It's the pre-season after all.

    hope that he can have another strong year in 2013-2014... near 2010-2011. but he needs real threat alongside him. someone like parker or CP.
    forwards are most problematic when franchise players while they are not in the middle of the game like 5's and don't have the ball always as 1's...
    he could play to his 40's if things go smoothly...
    dallas owner did a lot of mistakes last two years and that didn't suit dirk...

    Old Dirk's back for basketball's sake

    Highlights from that game (season-high 35 pts), including the winning three (he hit 5/6 from beyond the arc).

    Dirk and the Mavs are playing their hearts out like it means everything for them since they want to get back to the 0.500 mark and finally get to shave their beards and not look like homeless refugees
    Oh and of course they want to qualify to the playoffs as well

    Nowitzki joins the 25,000 points club. The 17th player in NBA history to do so.

    Such a weird feeling not seeing Dirk and the Mavericks in the playoffs. I kept seeing them in the post-season when I was 12.

    Rik- I'm interested in hearing your opinion on where you rank Dirk compared to the other all time European greats?

    Me personally? Well, my all-time fave is Sabonis. But after all this time watching Dirk, maybe he took his place...
