Satire: Dirk Nowitzki Gets Ticked Hoff

Opposite of Diana Hartman's OCMC installments over in the culture section every, well, whenever she gets to them, the plan was to feature this every Friday. That will still happen, but since we completely missed last Friday's installment, everyone gets a treat with a double dose of sports photos this week. Because, be honest, last Friday was a little unfulfilling, wasn't it?

    As sources said Thursday that people within the organization cautioned Dirk Nowitzki about his relationship with a woman who was arrested at the star forward’s home Wednesday morning.

    The team sources said Nowitzki’s own suspicion led him to question Cristal Taylor’s past while allowing her to stay in his house. Her arrest on two warrants, stemming from a probation violation and a theft charge, occurred as the Mavericks flew back from Denver.

    “It’s pretty obvious that I’m going through a tough time in my personal life right now,” Nowitzki, 30, said after practice Thursday. “Like I always have, I want to kind of keep my private life private.

    “I really am not at the stage where I can talk about it yet and feel comfortable talking about it. I’m more than happy to answer basketball questions, but I think at this point, I just can’t talk about it.”

    Taylor, 37, remained jailed Thursday night in Dallas County jail with bail set at $20,000 on the theft of services charge and no bail allowed on the probation violation. She could face an extradition hearing in the coming days.
