The Dallas Mavericks beat the New Orleans Hornets yesterday to move to 40-40 on the season. In and of itself, that’s pretty unremarkable. But reaching the .500 mark meant that Dirk Nowitzki could shave that ridiculous beard off of his face.
The big man had stated he was going to let it grow until the Mavs leveled up.
I’m sure warm-weather season in Texas isn’t entirely kind to the bearded so it’s likely a significant upgrade in the comfort department.
Smart move, Dirk.
