Deep Ellum's Traveling Man Is All Decked Out For #DirkWeek.
It's no secret the Dallas Mavericks are in need of some help at center. After letting Tyson Chandler walk in the offseason and then getting spurned by DeAndre Jordan, the team could sure use a big man.
That's a need the team hopes to fill with its newest signee, who instantly becomes the biggest big man in league history. Standing at 38 feet tall, Deep Ellum native The Traveling Man will provide a much needed presence in the middle. A rebound magnet, he also comes with a huge downside as well. Let's just say they don't call him the “traveling” man for nothing. He's also a terrible dribble and a turnover machine. But, hey, cut him some slack: He's only six years old.
You'll also notice that he's wearing Dirk Nowitzki's jersey because, in all actual seriousness now, it's hashtag DirkWeek — and the Mavs have a pretty clever marketing team.
This promotion comes as part of a scavenger hunt where the team's giving away free tickets. You've got two days left to enter, and you'll need to find the team at (+LetsGoMavs) on CyberDust — because of course — to know which clues you'll need to find in order to enter.
