It was about four seconds after I arrived at the American Airlines Center last night that I saw my first Jeremy Lin jersey, on an Asian reporter in the media parking lot. A journalistic sin, sure, but one you've gotta let slide on Jeremy Lin Appreciation Night. Mavericks games on any other night ar ... More >>
I dunno, last Sunday night's finale to HBO's Entourage was a little too tidy for me. Vince finally got the girl. Eric was back with Sloan. Ari was reconciling with Mrs. Ari. Drama's show was a go and even Turtle was a trim, fit millionaire. What the what?! I guess I prefer my bre ... More >>
His critics wouldn't call him soft, but his teammates would still lead the Mavs to another early exit.
The Dallas Mavericks got better today. The Dallas Stars? Hmm.

Danny Bollinger Was this block/fall Jason Kidd's last stand as a Maverick? The body was still warm. The emotions, still raw. But when it comes to the Dallas Mavericks, Charles Barkley doesn't give a damn. "They got problems," the rotund, ridiculous TNT analyst said last night in the min ... More >>
*I seem to be fresh out of cash, but I'll betcha some leftover Christmas fruitcake that the Cowboys don't win in Philly Sunday. A team that leads the league in penalties, can't get in sync on something as simple as the center-quarterback snap, and allows the longest back-to-back running plays in NFL ... More >>

Maybe it's time the Mavs' would-be MVP got his Dirk out of the box and played some friggin' crunchtime ball.
