DALLAS -- Since he went through marriage ceremonies this summer more times than the average man, marriage obviously agrees with Dirk Nowitzki.
The Dallas Mavericks perennial All-Star exchanged wedding vows with Jessica Olsson during ceremonies in the Carribean. He also had wedding ceremonies in his wife’s home country of Africa and in his home country of Germany.
“It was a busy summer, for sure,’’ Nowitzki said Friday. “I kind of opened up a new chapter in my life, so that was fun.
“I traveled around a bunch and got married like four times, I think. It was good times.’’
When someone asked Nowitzki if he married the same woman all those times, Nowitzki laughed said, “Yeah.’’
Indeed, Nowitzki had fun with his marriage with the media Friday during Media Day. Especially since when the blessed event hit the Internet over the summer, Mavs officials kept denying he was married.
“After the fourth wedding I’m like I’m out of here for about a month,’’ Nowitzki said. “So I left for four weeks and I just got back.
“But things are great. I’m looking forward to married life for a long time.’’
