We just got back from a look at the Mavericks' war room and we were quickly corrected that it's no longer PC to call it that.
It has to be the "draft room.''
So for the rest of the night, we'll refer to it that way, even though we don't like to acknowledge that a simple name for a room where teams are wheeling and dealing from has to conform to our sensibilities.
By the way, it's in an upstairs room at American Airlines Center. And it's got windows, which just doesn't seem right for a war room.
It includes a big U-shaped table that has coach Rick Carlisle and owner Mark Cuban on the point on one side and all the scouts, personnel gurus and others all seated around the rest of the tables that are pushed together end to end.
All that for No. 24.
