Dirk Nowitzki is not that innocent.
The beloved seven-foot German, who plays power forward for the Dallas Mavericks, left the locker room for the den and regaled us with a dramatic reading from his favorite poem, "Oops! ...I Did It Again" by noted American writer Britney Spears.
Dirk is known for his genial attitude and kindness towards fans, and could easily coast right now after helping his team win its first ever NBA Championship title in 2011. But since he's such a swell guy, he put his thick accent to its best use ever by reading the chorus from Spears' 2000 hit single in this video officially released by the Mavericks organization.
Why? Who cares? What should Dirk perform next as a Dramatic Reading? Vote in our poll below.
