Either this is a clever prank on Mark Cuban’s part or he officially has more money than brains. From the Orange County Register’s Art Thompson III :

The Clippers™ loyal and most recognizable fan, Darrell Bailey, AKA Clipper Darrell, might be taking his enthusiastic, crowd-leading voice to Dallas.

The Register learned Thursday that Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has scheduled a meeting with Bailey, Jan. 25, in Dallas.

œHe offered me a job in Dallas, to do the same thing I do for the Clippers, said Bailey, whose day job is as an automobile customizer and salesman. He came up to me at the (Jan. 12) game and told me that he loved what I do. That shocked me.

Bailey, 39, was born and raised in Los Angeles and said he never has been to Texas. Often standing in the aisle next to his seat, the 5-foot-5 Bailey is known for leading the cheer, œLet™s go Clippers, and for his œYou don™t have no alibi, jeer at opposing free-throw shooters.

‘s Kevin Arnovitz tells True Hoop’s Henry Abbott, “I’d trade him for a deli spread and three cubic liters of pre-jump-ball talc.” Which means Mr. Bailey has slightly higher trade value than the Lakers’ Kwame Brown.

“Only 6 games out of the playoffs!” gushed Bill Walton this evening regarding the New York Knicks, who are taking a 3 game winning streak to DC tonight. “Who’d have thought the Knicks would be better without Stephon Marbury?” I dunno, anyone who’s watched Marbury play the past few weeks?
