Nowitzki hailed from W¨¹rzburg, Germany, a town of about 125,000 people that didn¡¯t include many black or African residents. The racial differences never mattered to Nowitzki, as he quickly became smitten with ¡°Jess¡± after they met.
¡°What made her so special? What made me fall in love with her? First of all, she¡¯s got to be attractive. That¡¯s obviously part of it,¡± Nowitzki said with a big smile. ¡°And I think we just clicked intellectually. She likes art, she likes sports. Her brothers both played soccer, they were professional.
¡°She grew up around sports. We both love tennis and we love to travel. We both love kids and family.¡±
