    Some way, somehow, Mark Cuban managed to whittle down the 1,000-plus quality entries in his design-the-next-Mavs-uniform contest down to a final 10. For whatever reason, Buster the Armpit Lion didn't make the cut. The submissions are currently up for a vote here. All of them are pretty quality, sav ... More >>

    A Tale of Two Trades: How the Mavs and Stars are Affected by 'Melo and Neal

    ​The Dallas Mavericks got better today. The Dallas Stars? Hmm.

He launched a wing jumper and you knew it was going in. Measured. Smooth. Beautiful. Nothing, in other words ... More >>
