In every sport I have certain shots that I must get and in basketball this is one of them. I love to get the stars observing the National Anthem with the digital banner behind them displaying the stars and stripes.

Last season Brandon Bass #30 was wearing a Mavs uniform and is one of the most aggressive/athletic players we had. He isn’t scared to bang around in the paint and mix it up with the biggest of them in the league. Now he’s with the Magic, like they needed another tough player inside.

Shawn Marion #0 did not play in the Mavs preseason opener due to a sore calf muscle. I’d rather have him resting and ready for the regular season.

Dirk shakes the hand of his ‘almost’ teammate Marcin Gortat #13 of the Orlando Magic. It was funny because through the game Mark Cuban, Jason Terry, and other Mavs would holler at Gortat and tell him he was wearing the wrong blue uniform. Gortat would smile and shrug his shoulders.
