When Game 3 of the Spurs/Mavs series tips off in Dallas tomorrow night, Eva Longoria might want to avert her eyes. Because her hubby is about to experience a world of hurt. Well, about as much “hurt” as Erick Dampier can possibly inflict.

Dampier, Erika to some, had some tough talk for the Dallas Morning News following Game 2:

As Erick Dampier, dressed in a natty creme-colored sportscoat with a brown shirt and matching tie, wiped the sweat from his brow he vowed to stop Parker’s personal layup drill.

“Parker got into the teeth of our defense and caused problems,” he said. “Every time he drives the lane, we have to put him on his back. The first foul has to tell him he’s in for a long night.

“My first foul Thursday night is going to put him on his back. I guarantee it.”

Well, this should certainly be interesting to watch.

Erick Dampier, tough guy. It’s a brave new world.
