Soon as the Mavericks "drafted" Texas shooting guard Jordan Hamilton, I received texts and tweets and a couple of phone calls from excited fans. Hamilton played for the Longhorns, so he must be good, right? W-R-O-N-G. Not sure if any school has more NBA busts than the one down ... More >>
If this poster were an NBA Draft prospect, Jay Bilas and Hubie Brown would go on and on about its impressive length. Probably its upside, too. But we here at DC9 just think it's purdy.
Yep, pretty much the easiest list I've ever put together. On June 24, 1998 the Dallas Mavericks drafted robust, rotund -- let's face it, fat -- Michigan forward Robert "Tractor" Traylor with the No. 6 pick in the draft. Three picks later the Milwaukee Bucks drafted a German teen named Dirk Nowitzk ... More >>
Via.It was quite the big deal back in '80, when the Dallas Diamonds of the fledgling Women's Professional Basketball League signed Old Dominion star and Olympic silver-medalist Nancy Lieberman to her first pro contract. I have a hazy memory of sitting among a few packed houses at Moody Coliseum, ... More >>
He led the Dallas Mavericks to their 30-year apex. He Instilled defense and discipline into a franchise that had forever languished with an offensive philosophy. He orchestrated the best regular-season in team history. He was the NBA's Coach of the Year. And he took ... More >>
In hindsight, bravo Mavericks. Brah-voe! When I screw up, I do it biiiiiig time. And, turns out, I was dead-ass wrong about the February 2008 trade in which the Dallas Mavericks sent Devin Harris to the New Jersey Nets for Jason Kidd. Actually, the entire deal was Harris, Trenton Hassell ... 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 >>
Trade proposal: Mavs Man and tonight's 24th pick for these two prospects?Like the Dallas Cowboys did a couple months ago, the Dallas Mavericks have made the decision to fortify their roster via quantity, not quality. But in an NBA Draft that features Blake Griffin, Hasheem Thabeet, James ... More >>

I still - as always - wouldn't have pulled the trigger on Jason Kidd and two No. 1 draft picks, etc. for Devin Harris and Antoine Wright, etc. But I'll admit, Kidd has been better than any of us expected. And today - as the Mavericks prepare to enter the second round of the NBA P ... More >>
A year ago tomorrow the Mavs pulled the trigger on their controversial blockbuster, sending Devin Harris and two first-round draft picks to the New Jersey Nets for Jason Kidd. Lookie who's in town tonight? It's those same Nets and a very different Harris, fresh off his All-Star appearance and a ... More >>
