Foul on Devean George
That's likely what the newest Maverick will hear when Dallas hosts the (grit your teeth) World Champion Miami Heat and Dwyane Wade February 22 at the American Airlines Center. Devean George, signed from the Los Angeles Lakers last night, will join newcomers Anthony Johnson, Greg Buckner and rookie Maurice Ager as new ploys attempting to keep Wade from matching his ridiculous NBA Finals averages of 34 points and 16—-16!--free throw attempts per game. Other intriguing dates for the 2006-2007 season include LeBron James in town March 1, Steve Nash in town December 28 and the return of Marquis Daniels January 4. Oh, yeah, and the Mavs start the season November 2 by hosting the San Antonio Spurs. A sign that we should put the bitter past behind us, Dallas' entire schedule is available here. --Richie Whitt
