No one really understands why Mark Cuban and the Dallas Mavericks put on this spectacle, I get that they were honouring a fellow Dallas athlete and friend of Dirk, but why all the fuss? We all understand the Mavs were a bust this year and last nights game was meaningless and the only reason to pay attention was because of Tony Romo. Are the Mavs this hard up for PR in 2017?

It was announced last week that Romo would be suiting up to sit on the bench during the Mavs final home game of the season. But owner Mark Cuban had much more in store for Romo, if the NBA would allow it. Cuban approached the league about playing Romo in Tuesday’s game against the Denver Nuggets - also eliminated from playoff contention, but NBA commissioner Adam Silver shot that down and refused to honor Romo’s contract.

That wasn’t going to stop the sideshow though, Dirk set the table for the game with a great tweet:

And it turns out the layup line was strangely exciting as the crowd gave the former NFL quarterback a nice applause whenever he put the ball the basket. 

As I mentioned most of the excitement heading into this game was centred around the professional broadcaster and his presence on the end of the Mavs bench, but for a moment it looked like he was going to get a run. It didn’t happen and the fans let their disapproval known. 

Not to be stopped, the internet had some thoughts on the events at American Airlines Center.
