Popeye Jones Musta Taken His Spinach
Last night, before the Mavs throttled the Knicks in NYC, somebody with a video cam was recording Erick Dampier taking a few warm-up shots. What they caught was something accidentally spectacular: this shot by former Mav-turned-Dallas assistant coach Popeye Jones, who's one of four on the player development staff. In truth, it's kinda hard to tell who took the shot, but you sure as hell can see how it made it into the hoop. Actually, how the hell did it go in? Magic, probably. --Robert Wilonsky
