Dirk Nowitzki helps Rougned Odor recreate his Jose Bautista punch

New, comment

The Texas Rangers' second baseman spent some of his suspension hanging out with Dirk Nowitzki and Chandler Parsons.

Texas Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor isn't on the baseball diamond right now. He's in the middle of serving his suspension for punching Jose Bautista in the face on May 13, which nearly made him a folk hero in these parts.

So of course, Odor decided to go hang out with Dirk Nowitzki and Chandler Parsons at the Mavs' practice court. Let's take a look at how it went:

Dirk and Odor recreating 'The Punch' is one of the greatest things to ever happen. But that's not all! It appears Odor is now a Mavs' employee, at least according to Parsons.

Our new team security.

There are a few things here. This is reason No. 12432435 of why Dirk is one of the best humans. There is simply no denying that. Also, it's always fun to see the local Dallas teams support and interact with each other. Can Odor also play for the Mavs occasionally next season? Maybe we could even have Dirk play some second base.
