Dirk Nowitzki finally got to shave his beard after over two months of waiting. Dirk was one of several Mavericks who vowed in February not to shave until the team got back to .500 for the season. They came close a few times recently, but they weren’t able to get back to even until Sunday. Dallas beat New Orleans 107-89, and coach Rick Carlisle says Dirk was already shaving less than two minutes after entering the locker room. Team owner Mark Cuban was proud to beam out the notice using his Bat Signal: Shave em if you got em Go Mavs #MFFL — Mark Cuban (@mcuban) April 15, 2013 Dirk had 19 points in the win. Getting to shave is a bittersweet reward; this will be the first time Dallas misses the playoffs since the 1999-2000 season. Here’s a before look at Dirk in his thick beard: Dirk’s beard, I shall miss you. twitter.com/BallinWithBrya… — Bryan Gutierrez (@BallinWithBryan) April 15, 2013 And here’s the clean-shaved forward in the after photo: Dirk has already shaved. twitter.com/townbrad/statu… — Brad Townsend (@townbrad) April 15, 2013 The good news is Dirk can begin getting some love from his wife again. He says she stopped kissing him in February because of all his facial hair. Photo: Instagram/Mog623
