Dallas Mavericks Won’t Shave Until They Reach .500 Record

Prepare yourselves for Increasingly bushy and terrifying Playoff beards in Dallas — the Mavericks are desperately trying to regain some form of respectability, and vow not to shave until that happens. The Mavs have a record of 21-28, and they’re tossing away the razors until they hit .500. Per the Dallas Morning News: “What’s the deal about the beards several Mavericks are sporting? And does Dirk’s wife, Jessica, approve of it? ‘Not really,’ Dirk Nowitzki said in response to the second question. He said the mostly team-wide beard pact was started about two weeks ago by O.J. Mayo, Dahntay Jones and Vince Carter. ‘We said we’re not going to shave until we’re back to .500,’ Nowitzki said. ‘So it’s been rough. There’s been some itching going on. And since we’re still down seven games below .500, that’s a long way to go.’ Nowitzki said the trimming of beards in the neck area is allowed, which is a good thing ‘because it was getting stuck on my shirts and stuff.’”

    You know what they say, if you can’t grow playoff beards, grow try-to-get-to-500.-beards right.

    Don’t Mayo and Carter already have beards in the first place?

    I’m no expert at growing beards but… wouldn’t the itching and everything just irritate the hell out of the players?
