    New Mav Caron Butler: What Did He Dew?

    ​Well, that certainly was a dud. Not ready to rescind the Josh Howard trade just yet, but newest Maverick Caron Butler opened with a resounding sperplunk in last night's loss in Oklahoma City. Couple of airballs. Had as many turnovers as baskets (4). Generally looked like Michael Finley, incl ... More >>

    After 7-Player Trade, Your Mavericks are Better. But How Much Better?

    New Mav Caron Butler​Three years ago to the day I loved Josh Howard. But this morning I'm thrilled that he's no longer a Dallas Maverick. Why? Because lost in the parties and record-setting crowd of NBA All-Star Weekend was a seven-player trade that both re-shaped the Mavs' roster and re-bo ... More >>

    Mark Cuban: Super Bowl or Bust?

    ​It wasn't exactly as declarative as when Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones injected his all-or-nothing expectations into the season a month ago, but Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban believes his team is as good - actually, better - than the one that went to the NBA Finals in 2006.

    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 >>

    Dallas Mavwrecks: Series, Composure Both Lost

    So much for winning. And so much for losing with class and dignity. Yes, unequivocally, the Mavericks got screwed in Saturday's Game 3 loss to the Denver Nuggets. (We didn't need - or really want - an admission by the NBA to confirm that.) But despite the team's latest case of Whine Flu, i ... More >>

    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 >>
