Adam Silver Stopped Mavs From Playing Romo By Refusing To Honor Contract

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!".

The Milwaukee Bucks veteran forward was asked if had heard recently-retired Dallas Cowboys star quarterback Tony Romo was going to suit up for the Dallas Mavericks in their game against the Denver Nuggets Tuesday night in Dallas. Cowboys tight end Rico Gathers posted a video of a pickup game and Romo has some handles.

The 37-year-old came out for warmups and not only made his lay ups, but he drained a 20-foot jumper in the face of Devin Harris. He will be introduced to the crowd, and Nowitzki is expected say a few words to honor Romo when he addresses the fans before the game.

"Standing here today I feel a little bit embarrassed, to be honest", said Romo, who was a standout basketball player in high school. "I feel like this whole week has been emotional in a sense with the outpouring of support and people who have appreciated you and loved you.". He wasn't expected to get into the game, but there was a sliver of hope that Mavericks owner Mark Cuban had a trick up his sleeve. Butler scored 16 of his 27 points in the fourth quarter while Romo scored 12 points. Just the scrambling that he did when the play wasn't working he was one of the best in the game.

"I think I'm going to get more street cred being on the bench for the Mavs than actually playing for the Cowboys with those guys", Romo said.

After breaking a bone in his back last preseason, the career passing leader for the storied Cowboys franchise lost the starting job he held for 10 years to rookie Dak Prescott and decided not to play for another team. As a senior at Burlington High School.

Ezekiel Elliott, Jason Witten and more than a dozen other former teammates showed up to support Romo, as well as Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett, offensive coordinator Scott Linehan and owner/general manager Jerry Jones.

The 6-2 Romo, who retired after 14 season to join the CBS NFL broadcast team, said he looked "like a turtle" compared to the 7-foot National Basketball Association players. You know, I've got to live with that, and that's part of playing sports. I'm a very lucky guy.

As coach Rick Carlisle put his arm around Romo while the crowd roared in the final minutes, Mark Cuban pulled Romo back to the seat he had next to the Mavericks owner. "I think he deserved it".

But watching Romo and especially listening to what he had to say, one thing was pretty clear.

He will also be happy seeing Romo on the bench, and he does not agree with those who have a problem with what Cuban will do.
