Dirk Nowitzki may have spent some of his offseason sing happy birthday and mimicking a camel but he has also had serious responsibilities as a father. In a chat with Dallas Mavericks fans on the team’s official app Nowitzki shed some light on his life as a dad. When asked about how fatherhood has changed his life Nowitzki replied jokingly: “I gotta change diapers now. Never done that before.” On a more serious note he also stated that he wouldn’t be opposed to having more kids. “I always wanted two or three” he said. “We will see” Nowitzki continued the chat by answering questions about books and movies. But he was also asked about some of the additions made this offseason specifically his former teammate Devin Harris. “Always liked DH” Nowitzki said. “He is fast and smart. Hopefully he can get healthy and have a good year for us.” There is no doubt the Mavericks will have a new look this year. But will they be successful? Nowitzki didn’t give too much insight on his expectations for this season. “We have a good team but a lot of new guys so we have to get use to playing with each other” he said. “and get better as the season goes on and see how far we can take it.”
