Dallas Mavericks Top 10 Countdown: Honorable Mention
Hard screens, attempted charges, and corner threes. These are the calling cards that defined the short career of Brian Cardinal. Although his game was often cringeworthy and his biggest claim to fame was a meme about him, “the Custodian” was a Mavs fan favorite.
His best known accomplishments really came during the Championship title run when Cardinal cheered harder than anyone from the bench. There is no denying that Cardinal brought energy and fun to the court and that others worried about there own safety when being guarded by him.
Brian Cardinal played for 6 different teams in his 12 year career. Aside from one excellent season in which he averaged 9.6 points and 4.2 rebounds per game for the Golden State Warriors, Cardinal’s career was mostly forgettable. Still, through it all, the Mavs fans loved him and that is why he made the list.
