Yes, There Is A Santa Claus, and He's A Seven-Foot German Forward Named Dirk

After setting the gifts on her bed, Dirk Nowitzki helped the girl unwrap the Twilight DVD, board game and other presents the Mavericks delivered, even recording a quick holiday greeting onto a Flip camera for Aguilar.
In all, Nowitzki dropped by to see around 15 kids on his visit. Jason Kidd had planned on joining the forward on his trip to the hospital, but bowed out because he's been sick. For his part, Dirk hadn't realized media had been invited out to the visit, and probably didn't intend for it to be a photo op. (Sorry. But it was just across the street.)
