Dirk Nowitzki married girlfriend Jessica Olsson recently, and the glorious pictures have finally surfaced. 

There is really nothing ordinary about Nowitzki and the rumors that surround his supposed Kenyan marriage, not even the pictures that have hit the Internet. 

As we reported earlier, reported the Mavericks star had married, but that countered information put out by The Dallas Morning News

Update: Monday, July 30th - 8:04 ET

The pictures originated from Jambonewspot writer Antony Karanja. You can see more vibrant pictures from the ceremony here

Well, this was all before these pictures came out (h/t SportsGrid). 


If you thought Nowitzki was a lanky mess before, the awkward hitting your eyes still has to be a shock to the system. 

We also have what is being called a quote from Nowitzki, via News Time Africa

This is one of two wedding set-ups that we have planned to undertake and the ceremony has been very beautiful. 

That was enough for Jeff Caplan of ESPN to report on the event that was most likely, very plausibly, almost certainly Dirk Nowitzki's wedding. 

We kid because we care. 

The ceremonial outfits are a treat for the eyes, a brilliant use of colors and texture. I would not suggest Nowitzki ever wearing these again though. 

Add these pictures to the list of things we will never be able to unsee.
