It all started innocently enough: Mavs' center Bernard James updated the Twitterverse on his plans to spend All-Star Weekend in Cabo San Lucas:
Off to cabo we gooooo

Well that's nice! After all, it HAS been a hard-fought first half of the season for our Mavs. Sarge deserves some beach time. I have never been to Cabo but I hear it is lovely. You know, I wonder what the rest of the Mavs are doin......
WAIT A SECOND:
Gal Mekel is ALSO in Cabo? IS GAL MEKEL VACATIONING WITH BERNARD JAMES BECAUSE AWESOME. (Also, you're welcome for this picture, ladies.)
Well okay. I wonder what the rest of the Mavs are doing on vacation then. Are they ALL in Cabo? Let's check in on Jae Crowder:
And last but ohhhhhh certainly not least, Shane Larkin is apparently ALSO on a boat. Here is the audio/visual evidence (you'll want to listen in):
I don't think this is the same boat as Jae Crowder and DeJuan Blair, but let's pretend it was, because half of the Mavs partying on a boat while the odd couple of Gal Mekel and Bernard James vacation in Cabo just makes this Mavericks team even more weird/awesome/lovable than they already were, if that is even possible.
The 64,000 question though: I wonder what Monta Ellis is up to? I will update you if I find out!
UPDATE: Shawn Marion just revealed via Twitter/Instagram that he is also on a boat somewhere, because of course.
