The last time the Mavericks overhauled their uniforms it was 2001, and Dirk was still a scrawny, clean-cut German import flanked by Steve Nash and Michael Finley. The previous design was two decades old and carried the reek of futility of the early '90s.
There have been a few minor tweaks since the ... More >>
When the Lakers' Empire imploded on Mother's Day in Dallas, it did it in surreal style -- under a barrage of 20 Mavericks' 3-pointers, and punctuated by cheap-shot thuggery from Lamar Odom and Andrew Bynum.
Was thinking about Bynum's chicken-shit elbow to an exposed J.J. Barea. Other t ... More >>
I totally recognize that Blake Griffin is the shit. His in-game dunking has made must-see TV out of LA Clippers' games. And you'd think that a dude who jumps over a car should automatically win the NBA's All-Star Slam Dunk contest.

Good guy and good player ultimately not good enough.In the end, soon-to-be former Dallas Cowboy Greg Ellis is so much Michael Finley and Michael Young: A great leader and good player buried in a shitty era.
Except that - with his annual bitching about this or that - Ellis may have tarnished h ... More >>
Dirk's getting double-teamed. What's your excuse?*Unless Mark Cuban smears Swine Flu on Tony Parker, I'm afraid the desperate and prideful San Antonio Spurs beat the Dallas Mavericks tonight, forcing a Game 6 Friday night at American Airlines Center. Why? Because home teams down 3-1 always wi ... More >>
Tonight's the next chapter in one of sports' best rivalries. That's right, I said best.To be a true sports rivalry - more than just a plethora of games between teams in close proximity (see Chicago Cubs vs. St. Louis Cardinals) - the meetings between opponents must:
