That NBA Lottery Pick:
Later tonight, the Dallas Mavericks will face the Indiana Pacers and a special guest will be joining the team in the locker room.For those of you who noticed, Dirk Nowitzki has been growing his beard out for the last couple months and he's finally decided that the facial hair needs to be removed.We learn more from Eddie Sefko of the Dallas Morning News about the loss of Dirk's beard:“Everyone will have the clippers in the locker room Thursday,” Mayo said after the Mavericks’ robust 109-102 overtime win over the Clippers Tuesday. “Hopefully guys can watch us shave it off. The barber will be here. We’ll leave him tickets (for the game) and hopefully give ourselves a chance to shave it off. I want to do it right. I don’t want any patches. I’m ready to shave it.” Apparently, Omar the barber is going to do the honors. No clear word on who’s barber Omar is, but he’ll certainly be a popular guy Thursday night if the Mavericks can pull off their fourth consecutive victory. Nowitzki didn’t really want to talk about the possibilities, preferring not to open the Mavericks up to any voodoo that might befall them if they take anything for granted. “I don’t really want to jinx it, but I’m ready to get this thing off,” he said. “That’s a big outing for us Thursday against a very good, tough team from the Eastern Conference.”

Lamar Odom had the worst season of his career with the Dallas Mavericks last year. When the Mavericks acquired the 12-year veteran, they thought they would be getting the same type of role player the Los Angeles Lakers had during the seven years prior. That did not happen, and Odom’s only season in Dallas ended with the team paying him to not be on the roster.
As you might expect...
Lamar Odom received a roar of boos every time he touched the ball in his return to Dallas Tuesday, and though he says he’d apologize to Mark Cuban for the way things ended last season, he feels no guilt about his early departure from the team.
