They were conversation pieces for a couple of weeks, and finally, this probing media member couldn't stand it.
I had to find out what the blue bandana hanging from Antoine Wright's locker and the red bandana in Jason Terry's locker meant.
It was preposterous when Mavs' sideline reporter Emily Jones said that it represented the Crips and the Bloods, two notorious gangs that have clashed violently for decades.
This would be the Emily Jones of legendary gang hotbed of Plainview, Texas.
Turns out, the West Texas lady knows her stuff.
Jason Terry informed us that the bandanas do represent the rival gangs and were sent out by the LA Clippers' Baron Davis, who is co-producing the movie Crips and Bloods: Made In America. It chronicles the bloody feud between America's most famous and infamous gangs.
Terry said Davis sent out trailers and other information to all NBA players about the movie. And the players, as they often do, have responded. Many of them, including Terry and Wright, are donating money for every point they score this season.
The donation will be distributed to help inner-city youths across the country.
"Hey, when somebody in our NBA family asks for help like that, we all have to help,'' Terry said. "It's a really cool cause.''
And don't worry, there's no division of power going on in the Mavericks' locker room. It's simply a show of support for the cause.
