The Dallas Mavericks' Matt Miller just sent word: The team has narrowed down its list of 10 would-be Humble Billys to two finalists: Sean Heath and Michael Taylor. They shot to the top of the list following a few in-game tryouts; and your votes didn't hurt neither. Both will take their final shots at being the New Voice of Your Dallas Mavericks during the first two regular season at the American Airlines Center: Taylor's first up on October 27, when Dallas plays Washington; Heath follows on November 3, when the Mavs go up against the Jazz. The winner will be announced the next day. After the jump, both of their audition videos -- first Heath's, then Taylor's. And, yes, you can still vote here.
