“Everyone will have the clippers in the locker room Thursday,” Mayo said after the Mavericks’ robust 109-102 overtime win over the Clippers Tuesday. “Hopefully guys can watch us shave it off. The barber will be here. We’ll leave him tickets (for the game) and hopefully give ourselves a chance to shave it off. I want to do it right. I don’t want any patches. I’m ready to shave it.”
Apparently, Omar the barber is going to do the honors. No clear word on who’s barber Omar is, but he’ll certainly be a popular guy Thursday night if the Mavericks can pull off their fourth consecutive victory.
Nowitzki didn’t really want to talk about the possibilities, preferring not to open the Mavericks up to any voodoo that might befall them if they take anything for granted.
“I don’t really want to jinx it, but I’m ready to get this thing off,” he said. “That’s a big outing for us Thursday against a very good, tough team from the Eastern Conference.”
