It's Tony Romo Day in the NBA, which is weird, but there's a lot of weird stuff going on in the world right now so just roll with it.
The freshly retired Cowboys quarterback will ride the bench for the Dallas Mavericks in their season finale tonight at American Airlines Arena. Predictably, there is no shortage of coverage of his fun little adventure.
Fan appreciation night. Also honoring @tonyromo tonight. Come early and you can watch him shoot some airballs in layup line....â Dirk Nowitzki (@swish41) April 11, 2017
@swish41 If I shoot an air ball in warmups I give u permission to send me to the showers. But if I don't, u get me a corner three in the 4thâ Tony Romo (@tonyromo) April 11, 2017

The Mavericks also sent out this artistic rendering of what it would have looked like if Caron Butler was right:
And, you know, I didn't really grasp how potentially awkward this could be for Romo until I watched this video of him wandering around the court like a lost boy.
Help him out, Dirk!
UPDATE: Romo has a "sneaky good uncle at the Y" jumper:
