    Almost All My NBA Texas Exes Live in ... Obscurity

    ​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 >>

    Poster of the Week: Calhoun, Radiant and Menkena at the Kessler Theater on Friday Night

    ​ 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.

    The Best Trade in the History of Your Dallas Mavericks

    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 >>

    Hey, Don't Look Now, But That Mavs-Nets Trade Is Looking Better by the Loss

    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 >>

    Happy Basketball! Do You Believe in These Dallas Mavericks?

    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 >>

    Kidd vs. Devin: Tweaking the Hindsight?

    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 Playof ...

    Who Would You Trade Dirk For?

    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.

    Mavs owner Mark Cuban has, in recent days, vehemently poo-poo'd the idea of bringing Jason Kidd back to Dallas from the New Jersey Nets. But former Dallas Morning News'er Marc Stein, now at ESPN, brings word that the deal's back on -- and damned near done. Wrote Stein moments ago: "Sources told ESPN ... More >>
