Mavs-Magic Player Of Game Gets 'The Dirkie'

It is called "The Dirkie.'' It is a Mavs tradition: They win a game, somebody wins a trophy named after the finest player in Dallas history. Well, they won a game - as usual - this time Tuesday in Orlando. So you get to vote.

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?

    Player of the Game, Mavericks @ Magic ... Vote for The Dirkie!

Tyson Chandler -- unintimidated by Dwight Howard

Jason Kidd -- 13 point and 12 dime double-double

Dirk Nowitzki -- down goes Bird!

Caron Butler -- twenty points and 4-6 on treys

Jason Terry -- 13 efficient points

Brendan Haywood -- also not fazed by Mr. Biceps
