Old Balls

While the Seattle SuperSonics may not exactly top the NBA standings this year, there are two little words that should encourage you to check out their stand against the Mavs 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at the American Airlines Center: Ray Allen. How badass is he, with the He Got Game acting chops? But even Allen pales in comparison to the badassness that is the Dallas Mavericks. Oh sure, the team might still be a bit of a head case after last year's finals fiasco, but, damn, Dirk and the boys are still the cream of the NBA crop. Catch 'em as they tackle Allen and return to a proper leather basketball—the way God intended. For tickets, visit mavs.com.
