    The Return of Bob Ortegel

    ​Ten months ago, Mark Cuban dismissed Bob Ortegel as the Dallas Mavericks' color commentator, insisting, "Sometimes you've just got to freshen things up and try some different things." Ortegel, who had more or less been the voice of the team for the past 23 years, handled his firing with great dig ... More >>

    Mavs-Lakers Game 2 Preview From the Puerto Rican Point Guard and the Old Coach

    ​I asked Mavericks backup point guard J.J. Barea what he was thinking as the ball left Kobe Bryant's hand on the potential game-winning 3-pointer in Monday's Game 1 at Staples Center. "I wasn't thinking," Barea said. "I was praying." Despite playing 44 minutes of superb basketball -- the ... More >>

    Whew! Mavs Escape Cavs. Barely.

    ​I covered the Dallas Mavericks in the early 1990s when they won 11 and 13 games in back-to-back seasons. It wasn't fun. For anyone. In '93 the Mav-wrecks lost 20 consecutive games, so I can imagine the despair these days with the Cleveland Cavaliers. In the wake of losing LeBron James, they ... More >>

    The Top 10 Announcers in Dallas Sports History

    In retrospect, Ole Miss and Texas Tech are merely above-average college football teams. Their little clash in Dallas last week, however, was called by two of this area's icons of announcing. Though he's looked better, it was good to see Pat Summerall working the game on TV. And on radio - with his ... More >>
