Mavs man Matt Miller sent word this morning: Tomorrow at the American Airlines Center, before Mavs-Warriors, the team will debut a "a one-of-a-kind, life-size Dirk Nowitzki bobblehead." And it can be yours: The Dallas Mavericks are raffling off the sucker at five bucks a pop; tickets go on sale beginning tomorrow and will be available throughout the NBA All-Star Jam Sessions at the Dallas Convention Center February 11-13. And, like the Mary J. Blige kick-off concert at the Majestic, all proceeds will go toward the Mavs Foundation.
Which is nice and all, but I told Miller via e-mail that in order to get the plug on Unfair Park, he needed to send a teaser. So he did. Because he's good like that.
