Oh Huh, The Dallas Mavericks Might Be Good Again

The Dallas Mavericks were lumped in with the Portland Trailblazers as teams most likely to drop out of the playoffs this year. They missed out on Texas natives DeAndre Jordan and LaMarcus Aldridge, then overpaid for Wesley Matthews. The Great Emoji War was not kind to them.

The Mavs flat denied it, oddly enough. Well, here come the photos, and unless Dirk likes playing Ngurario dress-up, it looks like he indeed took… »7/30/12 5:30pm7/30/12 5:30pm
