    Basketball in Cowboys Stadium Was a Huge Success, But Would You Go There For a Mavs Game?

    ​Still blown away by the surreal scene at Sunday's NBA All-Star Game. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says the NBA will come back some day and Mavs owner Mark Cuban says he's pondering holding a game - even a playoff game - out in Arlington. Hmm.

    Dirk is Worried About the Mavericks. Are You?

    ​The Dallas Mavericks fell apart in the fourth quarter last night in Utah. In the last 12 minutes they had more turnovers (7) than baskets (5). Not good. A lead vanished into a four-point deficit and, ultimately, a blowout loss to a Jazz team playing without Carlos Boozer. Yikes. That's three ... 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 >>

    No Jason Terry. No Gatorade dump. Hindsight, they say, is 20/20. Sometimes, unfortunately, so is foresight.

    Attention K-Mart Shoppers: He's Still a Thug
