If you’ve been following the Mavs for awhile like me, you know that Dirk Nowitzki has often spoke highly of his coach back home in Germany. Well, according to the AP his coach has been in jail for 3 weeks and was recently denied a request to be released. He’s being investigated for tax reasons.
My personal thought is that this will probably not affect Dirk too much. He’s grown a lot over the past few years. The only way this could play negatively in the Mavs season is if his coach is in jail for an extended potion of the regular season. Only then should we worry.
