Denard Robinson, the next Heisman winner? Yawn.Reggie Bush gave back his Heisman Trophy. To which I respond: Big friggin' deal.
I know the Heisman is one of the most hyped awards, but - let's be honest - it's also the most meaningless sports trophy this side of the Governor's Cup, Golden B ... More >>
10. Is this really progress? Looked around American Airlines Center in the first quarter last night and seemed like everyone was not watching the game on the court, but rather looking down at the phone in their hands. Texting. In general, we've evolved to the point of going to games and then ... More >>
Actually, it's not confounding defeats to the Memphis Grizzlies and Atlanta Hawks that has Cuban peeved, but more so tonight's American Airlines Center invasion by World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE).
(This is, after all, a blog named after an old rasslin' barn.)
Cuban, never one to turn ... More >>
Dirk looks excited about the season. You?Last time we saw our Dallas Mavericks it wasn't pretty was ugly.
Jason Terry was flopping (only 15 points per game), the defense was floundering (surrendering 115 per game) and owner Mark Cuban was flapping (his gums at Kenyon Martin's mom) in ... More >>
Whether you're at the end of your rope or merely the end of your week, welcome to Whitt's End:
*Last night I got a foot massage. By a guy. And thoroughly enjoyed it. Now, now. Settle down. It's not what you think. Friend of mine tells me of a place where at 11 p.m. you can get an hour-l ... More >>
Granted, it would force me to actually watch the ridiculousy cheesy show, but I'd be willing to stomach Dancing With The Stars' sequins and sass and smarminess of Tom Bergeron if only I could orchestrate whom was boogieing down with whom.
Following in the "Foxtrot" footsteps of Emmitt S ... More >>
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 >>
Stay classy, Kenyon Martin's girlfriend. Stay classy.Let's keep this short and sweet, as I'm scurrying off to Las Vegas this morning to accept a CLIO Award. (No, check that, they're whispering in my ear that my schedule actually calls for an Observer staff meeting in Uptown.) Guess the a ... More >>
Better late than never, a happy tune.Now that, my friends, was a basketball game. A playoff basketball game, with everything on it.
Considering they still won't win this series, the Mavericks had every reason to fold. And after the week he's had, Dirk Nowitzki had every reason ... More >>
I was waiting for Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban to apologize. But to CBS 11 camerman Bill Ellis, not Kenyon Martin's mom. He issued an "I'm sorry" to her?
For what exactly?!
As you probably know by now, I detest peer-pressure, politically correct apologies. I'm not suggesting Cuban's cybe ... More >>
You know that stupid VH1 show Best Week Ever? Well, when VH2 comes out with Worst Week Ever I've got a candidate:
Your Dallas Mavericks, May 3-10, 2009.
Sunday: Lose Game 1 to Denver Nuggets/ Fail to respond when Kenyon Martin punks star Dirk Nowitzki with a forearm to the back.
Mon ... More >>
Dumb and Dumber.Dear Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith and Chris Webber,
And I mean this is the nicest way possible: Shut the fuck up! At the very least, actually listen before talking. Who knows, you might not make complete asshohles of yourselves next time.
We all wish Mavs' star Dirk ... More >>
Dirk Nowitzki has a case of the old-school Bird Flu. Certain that my prediction of Thuggets in 5 is spot on, my head is bursting with pride.
But desperately wanting my Mavericks to pull the upset, my heart is breaking with pain.
Before tonight's pivotal Game 2 at De ... More >>
Mavs' fans, prepare to be nauseated.I sincerely hope I'm wrong about this, but I have a feeling we're all about to get really pissed. Watching the most athletic - and by far the most animated and arrogant - team in the NBA knock the Dallas Mavericks out of the playoffs could be very ... More >>
