    Have the Dallas Mavericks Finally Found a Shooting Guard?

    ​Since the day Michael Finley was released in 2005, your Dallas Mavericks have been searching. Looking for a consistent starting shooting guard who can create his own shot off the dribble, get to the free throw line and provide a viable alternative other than Dirk Nowitzki as a guy capable of ...

    Hey, Don't Look Now, But That Mavs-Nets Trade Is Looking Better by the Loss

    In hindsight, bravo Mavericks. Brah-voe! When I screw up, I do it biiiiiig time. And, turns out, I was dead-ass wrong about the February 2008 trade in which the Dallas Mavericks sent Devin Harris to the New Jersey Nets for Jason Kidd. Actually, the entire deal was Harris, Trenton Hassell ... More >>

    Happy Basketball! Do You Believe in These Dallas Mavericks?

    Dirk looks excited about the season. You?​Last time we saw our Dallas Mavericks it wasn't pretty was ugly. Jason Terry was flopping (only 15 points per game), the defense was floundering (surrendering 115 per game) and owner Mark Cuban was flapping (his gums at Kenyon Martin's mom) in ... More >>

Not a novely act nuisance; the obtuse opposite of Shawn Bradley. Not some twisted Criss Angel mind-fuck. And not, after further review, a boyis ... More >>

    Sad - and surprising - that your Dallas Mavericks are reduced to trying to hold on to 8th place in the Western Conference over their final nine games over two weeks.

    NBA Fines Mark Cuban $25,000. Why Bother?

    The NBA is a bunch of nit-twitts. Over the weekend the league fined Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban $25,000 for his "criticism" of officials via Twitter, the real-time social network that allows schmucks like you and me to be flies on the walls of the rich, famous and exhibitionistic.
