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. But I watched a very entertaining dunk competition Saturday night ... More >>
Joe JohnsonThe Dallas Mavericks will re-sign Dirk Nowitzki. General manager Donnie Nelson is flying to Germany as we speak to make sure of it, with a plan to be on Dirk's doorstep at 11:01 tonight when NBA free agency commences. But a couple of developments have me thinking that might be ... More >>
Since the day Michael Finley was released in 2005, your Dallas Mavericks have been searching. Looking for a consistent starting shooting guard who can create his own shot off the dribble, get to the free throw line and provide a viable alternative other than Dirk Nowitzki as a guy capable of ...

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 >>
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: *Take place at a ... More >>

Turns out the best player on the NBA's best team is a normal guy
Don't send Michael Finley out to pasture just yet
The Nash-less Mavs try to hang tough and build a winning team from scratch
No big changes? Then Cuban is crazy.
For whom does the bell toll? Nellie? 'Tawn? 'Toine?

The Mavs gets Jazzed
This is Van Exel's team now, and his town, too
With half the season gone, are these Mavs good enough to win a title?
The Mavs and The Wizards rock the Mikes
Can the Mavs guard anyone? To find out, John Gonzalez gets offensive with a drunk Don, a focused Finley and a nutty Cuban.
Plus: No Look
That lovable jackass from Philly returns. Oh, joy.
For Dirk, Don and the Mavs to compete with the Lakers, they'll have to look to an unlikely source for inspiration: the late-'80s teams of Mark Aguirre and Dick Motta
Dallas Mavericks beat Utah Jazz in playoffs
Mavs play-by-play guy Jim Durham didn't have 'nuff pizzazz--so buh-bye
Fifty wins was cute and all, but now the Mavs will only go as far as Juwan takes them
Why are the Mavs still going cuckoo for Zhi Zhi? Because it's all about the upside.
From the week of February 15
Mavs All-Star Finley says his infrequent trips to the free-throw line are not a problem. We beg to differ.
When Mark Aguirre left the Dallas Mavericks a decade ago, he became the fall guy for the team's decline. Now he's back, dealing with his ghosts and trying to help the franchise regain its former glory.
Don't look a gift Bull in the mouth, but a win over Chicago doesn't mean a darned thing
