Mavericks' Roddy Beaubois: On crazy fans, Mark Cuban and what he likes about Dallas
In terms of wins and losses, the return of Rodrigue Beaubois has been a huge success for the Mavericks thus far. Since his 2010-11 season debut on Feb. 16., the Mavericks have gone 5-0. The 6-2, 180-pound guard is currently averaging 7.8 points and 3.2 assists over 18.0 minutes per game. Beaubois was born in Pointe-a-Pitre, France and drafted 25th overall by the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2009. After an impressive rookie campaign last season, Beaubois suffered a setback in August when he broke the fifth metatarsal bone in his left foot while training with the French national team.
