Kurt Snibbe continues his "Statues" series for Page 2 by celebrating the contribution made during the NBA Finals by Mavericks "Custodian" Brian Cardinal.
This statue serves as a monument to the fortitude and skill of the gritty power forward, an instrumental member of the 2011 NBA champion Dallas Mavericks. In the NBA Finals, he shot 66.7 percent from the field and averaged one personal foul every 3.75 minutes. The Mavericks were 4-0 when he played in the series and 0-2 when he didn't. He also grabbed a rebound.
