    Heavily Bearded Mavs Are Bringing a Barber to Tonight's Pacers Game

    Improbably, the Mavericks have managed to claw their way back into the playoff hunt after a season-long funk. With 11 games to go, they are a game-and-a-half out of the final Western Conference playoff slot, currently occupied by the Lakers, and have been gaining fast, winning nine of their last 12. ...

    The NBA Lockout is (Almost) Over. Here's What the Mavs Need to Do Before Christmas Day.

    Editor's note: Rob Mahoney writes about the Mavericks on his ESPN-affiliated blog The Two Man Game and about basketball for The New York Times's Off the Dribble blog. Presumably his New York Times bio will henceforth note that he now writes about the Mavericks for Unfair Park. Hark: The NBA season ... More >>

    Do You Miss Pro Basketball Enough to Want to Watch the Josh Howard All-Stars?

    ​Your World Champion Dallas Mavericks were supposed to take on the Indiana Pacers tonight at the American Airlines Center, the sixth of eight preseason games leading to November 1's regular-season opener against Chicago at the AAC. But with each passing day, it's looking more and more like the loc ... More >>

    Mavericks Getting a Teeny Tiny Bit of Help for Stretch Run with Corey Brewer

    Corey Brewer​Don't get too giddy if and when the Dallas Mavericks sign free-agent forward Corey Brewer today. Decent player at both ends of the court, but it's basically one more attempt to fill in the gaps left by the absence of Caron Butler. Maybe with the additions of Peja Stojakov ... More >>

    DwYane Wade = Failure. Mission Accomplished?

    ​OK, admittedly this may be a tad premature. We've still got - what? - 4.5 months left of NBA regular season. But what happened last night in Miami was too delicious to bypass. Turkey comes Thursday. Monday night the appetizer was served. Last week I officially wished failure upon t ... More >>

    Mavs Courting O'Neal? Oh Boy?!

    ​Your Dallas Mavericks are pondering an O'Neal, but not that one. Team source told me last night that the Mavs acquiring former Superman center Shaquille O'Neal is "a long longshot," but that Miami Heat center Jermaine O'Neal is a real possibility. Honestly, neither name gets me too ... More >>

    Don't Rush Josh

    Sad - and surprising - that your Dallas Mavericks are reduced to trying to hold on to 8th place in the Western Conference over their final nine games over two weeks. But with that gut-gouging home loss to the Denver Nuggets last Friday night, I think they fumbled away any realistic chance of mo ... More >>

    Your Dallas Mavericks are the Second-Best Team in the NBA ... Sorta

    While twiddling my thumbs waiting for the Mavericks - or anyone - to make a significant, deadline-beating NBA trade, I wondered just how good Dallas has been this millenium. Calculator 10 minutes elbow grease = Yahtzee! Answer: Damn good. Second-best good. From the beginning of owner Mark Cuban' ... More >>

    The Dallas Mavericks' Official Release Concerning Avery Johnson's Official Release

    Avery Johnson, picking up his Coach of the Year award two years ago. Which seems like a million years ago. Either Mavs owner Mark Cuban takes the suggestions of Unfair Park (and everyone else with eyes) pretty damn seriously, or else Avery Johnson’s dismissal had become that obvious. Probably the ...

    The last time the Mavs won a division, the team looked a whole lot different. I know, the Mavericks played like April fools in Phoenix Sunday afternoon. But the day wasn't a total loss. In fact, it was a major win. How's that? After Dallas' ugly loss, the San Antonio Spurs went and lost to the crap ... More >>

Proof that the basketball gods feel horrible about gift-wr ... More >>
