Halloween is an especially important time for NBA teams as it generally coincides with the beginning of the regular season, and the Dallas Mavericks are showing they are all in on both.

Carlisle does indeed look a lot like Jim Carrey so you cannot blame him for going with the “less is more” option, but the Nowitzki/Lurch pairing is too perfect so we have to hand this Halloween showdown to Dirk.

This has been an Extra Mustard Halloween costume critique.
