    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 >>

    Done Deals? Your 2009-10 Dallas Mavericks

    The missing link? Or merely the last move?​Well, after yesterday's signing of 3-point shooting specialist Tim Thomas I think the Dallas Mavericks are finished with their significant off-season moves. Of course, at points during the summer I also thought Marcin Gortat was coming, Brandon Bas ... More >>

    Mavericks-Nuggets: A Requiem in 5 Predictable Parts

    No Jason Terry. No Gatorade dump. Hindsight, they say, is 20/20. Sometimes, unfortunately, so is foresight. On Friday, May 1 I picked the Denver Nuggets to eliminate the Dallas Mavericks in five games. Last night it came to pass, in the form of Nuggets 124, Mavs 110. Dirk Nowitzki was as grit ... More >>

    Danny Bollinger Was this block/fall Jason Kidd's last stand as a Maverick? The body was still warm. The emotions, still raw.

    Better late than never, a happy tune.Now that, my friends, was a basketball game. A playoff basketball game, with everything on it. Delicious. Considering they still won't win this series, the Mavericks had every reason to fold. And after the week he's had, Dirk Nowitzki had every reason ... More >>

    Dallas v. Denver: Nuggets in 5

    I sincerely hope I'm wrong about this, but I have a feeling we're all about to get really pissed. Watching the most athletic - and by far the most animated and arrogant - team in the NBA knock the Dallas Mavericks out of the playoffs could be very painful. Get out your hate hats, Game ...

    Mavericks 3, Spurs 1. The End is Near.

    Let's say that before tip-off of Game 1 I gave you these crystal ball visions about the Spurs-Mavs series: *San Antonio's Tony Parker will skip down Dallas' lane at will, averaging 29 points including games of 38 and 43. *Dallas' Dirk Nowitzki will be held 10 points under his season scoring a ...

    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. 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 >>

    No, no Avery. The Mavs are 2-4, not 1-4. Nice try. Wanna know how crappy the Dallas Mavericks were yesterday afternoon against the previously winless Clippers. This about sums it up: “We just couldn't get stops,” said Jason Kidd, “and we couldn't make any shots at the other end.” ... More >>

    The Beginning Of The End

    Why can't the Mavs' coach take his own damned advice? On second thought, Dirk Nowitzki shouldn’t have turned the other cheek. He should’ve hauled off and cold-cocked David West during last Saturday’s Game 1. Or, at least, put him in a headlock and bludgeoned his nose Nolan Ryan-style. That way ... More >>
