    The Mavs Are Now the NBA's Fourth Most Valuable Team, But They're Still Losing Money

    In spite of all the off-season turmoil, in spite of the fact that Deron Williams went to Brooklyn rather than coming home, in spite of the what-might-have-been speculation about Chris Paul and Dwight Howard in green and blue, the Dallas Mavericks still came out ahead.

In 1998 then-general manager Don Nelson took the giant German in a draft-day switcheroo with the Milwaukee Bucks for the late, not-so-great Robert "Tractor" Trayor. Just a week after t ... More >>

    Mavs-Lakers: Looking Back at a Great Series ... and a Horrible Prediction

    ​Never been happier to be wrong. And I don't care that I wasn't alone -- I admit I was wrong. I'm stunned by the Mavs sweeping the Lakers, punctuated by Sunday's 122-86 epic shellacking. Matter of fact, I'm more surprised by this outcome than the Navy SEALs sweeping Osama. I gave currency to&n ... More >>

    2011 NBA WEST SEMIS GAME 2 -- Mavs 93, Lakers 81: My Top 10 Observer-ations

    ​10. For the Mavs, a shocking 2-0 lead. For the Lakers, a Stinko de Mayo. L.A. missed its first 15 3-pointers and was booed off the court in Staples Center. As they head for Dallas and Friday night's Game 3, the Lakers are muttering things like "dispirited" and "trust issues." Surreal. 9 ... More >>
