We'll confess: We're that dork that always has a novelty ringtone. We've gone from REO Speedwagon's "Can't Fight This Feeling" to the Illinois fight song to our current one, Europe's "The Final Countdown," inspired by Gob on "Arrested Development." We're lame that way. Forgive us.

But new NBA blog The Association (via The Mighty MJD) has discovered a way to put nerds like us to shame: Personalized Dallas Mavericks ringtones.


You can hear Mark Cuban, Doug Christie, Avery Johnson (who it's always fun to listen to), Jerry Stackhouse, Keith Van Horn and, most memorably, Dirk Nowitzki tell you that you should answer your phone. Nowitzki's is without question the best:

Hey, it's Dirk Nowitzki. How many calls do you get a day? Dang, what a circus. Gong Show!

We have no idea what that means, but, somehow, we find it beautiful.
