Dallas Mavericks swingman (or whatever position he sorta plays) Devean George, after messing up the Jason Kidd-to-Mavericks trade by using a contract clause to avoid being traded, started at small forward as the team was at home facing the Portland Trail Blazers. In 33 minutes, George shot 0-of-11, including 0-of-4 from three-point range. And he missed both free throw attempts, finishing with 0 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists and 1 steal.

The Mavericks won 96-76, so it didn’t really matter.

But in honor of Devean’s play InsideHoops.com awards him our newly-created ‘Jackass of the Day’ award.

Note that we now retire the existence of this award for today but reserve the right to revive it in the future should another player be worthy of it.

Now, to be fair to George, it isn’t his fault that he’s involved in such a big transaction. He’d probably have done this even if the deal was him to the Nets for a pair of sneakers. He’s just looking out for himself like every player in the league (and most people on planet Earth) tend to do.

But by doing this and then going out and looking like a complete scrub against the Blazers, he deserved some sort of award.
