Dallas Mavericks forward and former NBA MVP Dirk Nowitzki got married over the weekend in a traditional Kenyan ceremony, which hysterically forced him to wear a dashiki, as these pictures show.
Nowitzki’s bride is Jessica Olsson who is Swedish, and is the offspring of a Swedish father and a Kenyan mother, hence Dirk wearing the dashiki. Olsson’s brothers, twins Martin and Marcus, play on the Swedish national soccer team.
Dirk looks goofy as all hell rocking that dashiki, I guarantee that his hot new mixed-race wife told him “Just put this dashiki on for this ceremony, it will make my mother very happy” and Dirk caved and put it on.
Dirk looks goofy doing everything that he does and he has clearly taken an “F-U” attitude since winning the 2010-2011 NBA title. He admitted to partying too much last offseason and showing up out of shape. He can’t be blamed for this, he is one of a select few to complete the NBA Trifecta Checklist:
1) Win an NBA Title
2) Win an NBA MVP
3) Get elected to the Nasmith Hall of Fame (he is in, no brainer)
Dirk can do whatever he wants since completing the NBA Trifecta Checklist, even wear a dashiki, despite the fact that he and his beautiful bride are a quarter black COMBINED.
Yes he looks awkward, but he always looks awkward:
