Romo's honorary Mav day turns spectacle for final home game

"It's been overwhelming", Romo said of the time since he was released by the Cowboys and joined CBS to be their lead National Football League analyst.

Tony Romo may be spending a day as a member of the Dallas Mavericks, but Los Angeles Clippers center DeAndre Jordan thinks the former National Football League quarterback joined the wrong NBA team. Romo will reportedly do everything except play in the game... at least that's the plan.

And now, after avidly following the Mavericks during his 14 years in Dallas, attending many a game, he's getting to fulfill a dream of sitting on an National Basketball Association bench, too.

"He's been so good and so great and played hurt and just been such a rock-solid example of what a Dallas athlete should be".

"It's been overwhelming. I mean, I've had close to 600 text messages that I'm still working on, you know, 100 or so calls and a bunch of other stuff", Romo said.

"I can't say thank you enough", Romo said Tuesday. "So we wanted to see if he would be willing to do this and we're very happy that he was enthusiastically accepting, so it's great to have him here".

It's no secret Romo is big-time Mavs fan!

Butler said that Romo's overall skills in many sports is indicative of his athletic talents. It doesn't always go the way you expect. That way you won't say so-and-so gained 15 yards, when it was somebody else, something I have often been guilty of.

Oh, one more... a piece of advice I got many years ago from Bulldawg head coach Jack Welch, 'Have fun and just call the game'. "It really has been a very special week".

"He's not going to be signing a contract - that's not really feasible for some different reasons", said Carlisle, and in fact, Romo's "membership" on this roster is so unofficial that DallasBasketball.com reported on Monday that he'll be issued jersey No. 9 - even as Mavs rookie Nico Brussino is already wearing his own No. 9.

For what it's worth, Mavericks guard Caron Butler said that if Romo had wanted, there's a possibility that the 6-foot-2 14-year National Football League veteran could have been a professional basketball player. "I'm pretty sure if I did I'll probably wake up tomorrow feeling a little sore, so we don't like that at my age".

"I'm gonna score 20", Romo joked.
