Dirk Nowitzki Shaves His .500 Beard


The Mavericks won’t make the playoffs, but last night’s victory over the equally terrible Hornets did hold some significance. The win put the Mavs at 40-40 for the season and allowed Dirk Nowitzki and his teammates to finally shave their beards for the first time in months. As you might recall, earlier this season a few Dallas players agreed to not shave until they became a .500 team. Dirk didn’t waste time on his promise either.
