We're not sure how much Fort Worth-based Altego proved when it enlisted aeronautical engineering students at Texas A&M to attach its Polygon Sunfire laptop bag to a weather balloon and launch it into space. They were trying to make a point about durability, but I'm pretty sure my neon green Jansport ... More >>
The NBA is locked out. Dirk Nowitzki is preparing to play for his home Germany in Olympic qualifying. League stars are pondering playing overseas in Turkey and Italy and Spain and such in preparation of missed games next season. But, alas, the tireless work of a dance team never ceases. The ...

Sorry, Cubes, but that goofy German just leapfrogged you.
Since I'm out on vacation next week let me get to this Fourth of July tradition a little early: Happy Birthday, America. Our country turns the ripe old age of 235 on Monday. Between burgers and beers and bikinis, I'll make time this weekend remembering how friggin' fortunate we are to have a ... More >>
While contemplating defensive coordinator Dwane Casey's departure to be the Toronto Raptors' head coach and whom they should take with the 26th pick in Thursday's NBA Draft, a couple more Mavs-related items buzzed through my brain this week. 1. Who from the championship team s ... More >>
Mark Cuban, Dirk Nowitzki and the Mavs shed labels and the Miami Heat on the way to their first NBA championship.
The Mavericks have too many noble causes to not produce one last comeback
The frustrating thing about Dirk Nowitzki's injured finger? It happened on a play that wasn't a foul. "I thought I stripped him clean," Dirk said after last night's 92-84 Game 1 loss to the Heat in the NBA Finals. "Then I kind of looked down and I couldn't straighten my finger out anymore." ...

While we await some Important Documents, let me distract you with this.No doubt you recall last week's Greatest Video Ever (as opposed to this week's), in which German musicmaker Flula Borg pays homage to his "most favorite Basketballer from all times," one Dirk Nowitzki. Well, so happens that Bo ... More >>
10. As we suspected, Portland's team is pretty salty. But their fans suck. Booing Mark Cuban is cool. Throwing shit at him is lame. 9. The Mavs are the NBA's best road team the last two regular seasons, but they're now 2-14 in their last 16 playoffs games away from the American Airlines Cen ... More >>
Sure, no Dirk hurt. But Terry's 3-for-16 shooting hurt much worse last night.Two minutes and 13 seconds. That's all it took for the San Antonio Spurs to turn a two-point lead against the Dallas Mavericks into a 16-point lead with nearly nine minutes remaining in the second half. After Georg ... More >>
Caron Butler hasn't been as productive as he was in Washington, but he's getting there.Without their head coach and best player for most of the game, the Dallas Mavericks improved to 17-1 since November 20 with a 103-93 victory last night in Oklahoma City. Six Mavs chipped in with double-digit po ... More >>
Stay tuned later today for my interfacing with new Texas Rangers owner Chuck Greenberg and details of a romantic moment that went horribly wrong. (And no, smartass, those are two separate stories.) But for now, in recent losses Dirk Nowitzki has taken one and zero shots in the fourth quarter ... More >>
I love sports and stuff and, oh yeah, freaky things like, say, baby heads in glass vases.No, no, no. You got me all wrong. Am I skeptical? Cynical? Inquisitive? Smart-assy? Guilty. But bitter? Hardly. I consider myself more tell-it-like-it-is realistic rather than jump-off-the-hi ... More >>
Watching the Lakers party in Orlando last night - I was wrong about L.A. in 4, but just barely -was a reminder how cruel sports can be. While former Mavericks D.J. Mbenga and Josh Powell hugged and kissed the NBA's Larry O'Brien championship trophy, current Maverick Dirk Nowitzki is l ... More >>
Dirk Nowitzki: Still fighting off aggressive attackersIn light of Cristal Taylor's first comments since being arrested at Dirk Nowitzki's house earlier this month, I've heard reactions ranging from "Wow, this is getting juicy!" to "I wonder how Brad Townsend would feel if we started digg ...

Stumbled across this classic footage of a guy I'm glad the Mavericks didn't trade yesterday. Wow, I think Dirk Nowitzki dunked more in his 1999 All-Star Rookie Game appearance than in the rest of his career combined. As Hubie Brown predicts, "He's a handful."
Danny Bollinger's the man who documents the moves of your Dallas Mavs; if you're not following his fantastic photog blog, which goes more behind-the-scenes than the Wizard of Oz, you're missing out. A week after this festive photo of Dirk Nowitzki snapped at a charity event made the rounds, Danny wa ... More >>
