Actually, my Monday night had five stars:
1. Erica Newberg. Kindergarten graduate.
2. Kameron Loe. The bull.
3. Brad Wilkerson. There you go.
4. Michael Young. Automatic.
5. DeSagana Diop.
Best thing about the next Mavericks series – the best – is that it should be decided by the players. As it should be.
Like Ben and Skin just said on the Ticket postgame show, go find yourself a bottle of Gatorade and pour it on yourself, if you’re so inclined.
And get out to Ameriquest Field. That’s a big win to kick off a big series and a bigger homestand. And the Rangers will play twice more to finish this set against the Angels before the Mavs next take the floor. Go.
Timmy. I said goodbye.
Hey. Hey! We’re done here!
You don’t understand. I don’t officiate basketball games. Scram.
Yeah, go ahead and make some birdie shadows on the wall. I’ll find you a rattle, and a teddy bear that wears vertical stripes and a whistle.
