Immediately before the national anthem and startings lineups, a fan was showed on the jumbotron in Dallas of a fan decked in blue. The sign was on simple posterboard and marker. It drew the loudest screams of any of the packaged pre-game material. The sign read simply:
"DO IT FOR CLEVELAND TOO, MAVS!"
If ever there was a sign that the Mavericks are "America's Team" against the most hated team in the league by fans, that may be it. Cleveland's favorite team may be the Cavaliers.
They're next favorite has been, and continues to be whoever is facing the Heat.
