You saw this, right? OK. Maybe not. Maybe you shut off the teevee before the fourth quarter. Maybe you threw it out the window. Maybe you shotgunned the sumbitch. So maybe you missed seeing Owen Wilson -- good ol' Dallas boy, fer Chrissakes -- cheering on the Golden State Warriors. Maybe you missed seeing The Butterscotch Stallion and his huggy bear Kate Hudson going apeshit over Baron Davis' Golden State shower of threes drowning Your Dallas Mavericks. Hell of a way for a boy from Dallas to act. Hell of a way to support the home team, even if they didn't deserve it.
And, yeah, we're well aware of the fact Owen's drinking buddies with Don Nelson. And, yeah, we know Owen wanted Nellie to be in some movie he was making. "He had a part for me," Nelson recently told the San Francisco Chronicle. "I was going to be a school principal." Effin' traitors, the whole lousy lot of ya. --Robert Wilonsky

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
