Apparently, Tony Romo Could Have Played Pro Basketball

Mavericks owner Mark Cuban told National Basketball Association commissioner Adam Silver of his plans, and Silver responded by saying a contract wouldn't have been approved.

If the Mavericks are going through this much hoopla to get Romo into a uniform, there has to be a chance he'll appear during garbage time in a meaningless game.

"I just want to say we're honored to have Tony with us", Carlisle said of the day Romo is spending with the Mavs. "I feel like this whole week has been emotional in the sense of the outpouring of support from people who appreciated you and loved you".

At 32-49 on the season, the Mavs have been eliminated from playoff contention for a while.

"I'm a little disappointed now, obviously that the season is over and I feel the best I have all year, but that's how it goes", said Nowitzki, who won't make the trip for the Mavericks' Wednesday season finale at Memphis. I'm a very lucky guy. Butler starred at Racine Park High School, averaging 24 points and 11 rebounds before moving on to UConn and a 14-year National Basketball Association career with nine teams. There was a little bit of Brett Favre in him, I think, just making plays out of nothing when the play breaks down. It goes to show how everybody feels about Romo.

Romo was no slouch at basketball in high school.

"This is an honor that I could never dream of", said Romo, who rose to fame as an undrafted player out of lower-division Eastern Illinois in 2003. When it was time for the game, he ran out of the tunnel and the announcer called him on the court saying: "At guard, in his first season from eastern IL, welcome to Dallas No. 9, Tony Romo!".

"Obviously we knew we couldn't check him in", Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki said after the game.

Nuggets: Coach Michael Malone said four regulars wouldn't play in the final two games: Kenneth Faried (low back pain), Jameer Nelson (right calf strain), and Danilo Gallinari and Will Barton (rest).

When they reached the court for the game, the attention from the fans was more on Romo than Nowitzki.

With Westbrook resting for the first time this season, Oladipo also had nine rebounds and six assists, and the Thunder outrebounded Minnesota 54-35. In the last week, teammates thanked Romo on social media, the Cowboys put the No. 9 on the digital boards outside of their new practice facility and the downtown Dallas Omni lit up with No. 9.
