So really, really disappointed that our franchise, that my franchise, that stuff like that was going on, Nowitzki said. It’s very sad and disappointing. But I think [Mavericks owner Mark Cuban] is trying to step up and lead this franchise to the right direction, and that is hiring investigators, finding out all the little details that we have to know as a franchise what really was going on. I think Mark is going to step up here. …
As a franchise, obviously, we feel bad for the victims and for what happened to some of these ladies. Like I said, it’s truly, truly disgusting. Our thoughts and prayers are definitely with some of these victims.

One area in which Barkley need not worry is the interview process with NFL teams at the Combine. He received high marks for his character while at Penn State and by all accounts has a squeaky-clean background.
The way I’m going to attack (the interviews) is to be honest and open and just let it all out there because I feel like I don’t have anything to hide, Barkley said. I give credit to my family, coaches and friends that have kept me in line at school and made sure I didn’t make dumb decisions.
Unlike some other prospects who might feel uncomfortable about the 15-minute get-to-know-you sessions at the Combine, Barkley is looking forward to learning more about his potential suitors.
