O.J. Mayo, Dirk Nowitzki, Vince Carter, Chris Kaman, Elton Brand and Jae Crowder have all remained true to their pact of not shaving until their team got to .500. That was at 7 games under in the first week of February. Now at 35-36, the Mavs will have a chance Thursday night to realize their goal and finally shave the beards off. The players are looking forward to a win so much that they will have the team barber at the game ready to go should they win.
According to ESPN Dallas:
Omar the barber is coming to Thursday night’s home game against the Indiana Pacers.
“Man, everyone is going to have their clippers in their locker Thursday and hopefully you guys can watch us shave them off,” said Mayo, who said he doesn’t know his barber’s last name. “The barber will be here. We’re going to leave him tickets and give ourselves a chance to shave them off.
