    Dear Jose Juan Barea: I'm Sorry

    Consider this my public apology to one J.J. Barea. Dude, I was dead wrong. You are not, in fact, a 5-foot-2 pick-up game liability whose shot I could block.

    He just can't be. Can he? I was in the fifth row at American Airlines Center Saturday night and I still don't believe what I saw. Or heard. Either Criss Angel is playing some mind trick on me, or J.J. Barea may actually be an NBA player. Barea, all 5-foot-10ish, made slithery drive ... More >>

    Yo, Mavs, The End's Not Near
