The Dallas Mavericks are now the Charlotte Bobcats… according to a bunch of people on Twitter, anyway.
Check out this tweet, that may have sparked the, now, running joke on Twitter:
It’s gonna be a tough year for the Dallas Bobcats.

Skip certainly has beef with the Mavericks, after owner Mark Cuban tore him apart and sewed him back together inside-out on ESPN’s First Take. But, there are plenty of other people on Twitter who Cuban hasn’t publically skewered, and they agree with Bayliss’s sentiment.
How bad are things for Mavs in Dallas? The Bobcats just sent a condolence letter and asked if there was any way they could help.

In the past, if the Bobcats were mentioned in the same regard as the Mavericks, Charlotte fans would’ve rejoiced… Now they just laugh with the rest of the nation at the seemingly endless joke that has become the Dallas Mavericks this off season.
Poor Dirk indeed.
