Maybe the British pop star just likes to dress up?
Sheeran donned a green Mavs’ jersey with his name on the back with the No. 17 during his encore. Assuming the No. 17 is for his World Tour 2017, which continues in Houston on Saturday night. Either that, or he’s a big fan of former Mavs Ollie Mack, Antoine Rigaudeau or Chris Douglas-Roberts, all of whom wore No. 17 during brief stints with the team.
According to social media reports, one of Sheeran’s fans proposed to his girlfriend near the end of the show. So even if Sheeran isn’t a threat from the 3-point line, he at least has some matchmaking skills.
Perhaps next time Sheeran plays in North Texas he’ll be wearing a Dallas Cowboys jersey.
