"Los Mavs" Indeed...
I don't know when "Los Mavs" night is this year, but if they were smart, they'd give JJ Barea and newcomer-for-the-second-time Eddie Najera the start.
What better way to tip the cap to the Hispanic population? You know, other than some empty gesture of just adding a Spanish article before the team name on our jerseys that's really more of a marketing ploy to sell more Mavericks gear to Latinos.
Though I will admit that I am skeptical that we even owe anything to the Hispanic population in the first place. I think the Mavericks should have a German culture appreciation night... technically speaking, don't we owe those guys more of our gratitude than we do Hispanics?
Besides, I wouldn't be caught dead in a Los Mavs jersey, but you better believe I'd be first in line for our alternate "DIE ALLEINGÄNGER" jerseys. (Thanks, freetranslation.com!)
