Mavs-Magic Player Of Game Gets 'The Dirkie'
Setting the scene ... On the road. Second night of a back-to-back. Before an unheard-of five days off -- at Christmas! None of that fazes our Mavericks. They get the win in Orlando and return home for a lovely long holiday break. We got something for the awesomest of the awesome, a nice addition to the tasteful man's mantle.
It's not a gift. Someone earned this. Who?
