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.
New Mav Caron ButlerThree years ago to the day I loved Josh Howard. But this morning I'm thrilled that he's no longer a Dallas Maverick. Why? Because lost in the parties and record-setting crowd of NBA All-Star Weekend was a seven-player trade that both re-shaped the Mavs' roster and re-bo ... More >>

Actually, it's not confounding defeats to the Memphis Grizzlies and Atlanta Hawks that has Cuban peeved, but more so tonight's American Airlines Center invasion by World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). (This is, after all, a blog named after an old rasslin' barn.) Cuban, never one to turn ... More >>
Hal SamplesFamily reasons? Give us a break, Neerman. Geez, like we haven't heard that one before. On Tuesday, DMN'er Gromer Jeffers reported on one of the paper's 423 blogs (apparently they have one named after the Portland Trail Blazers) that Dallas County Republican Party chair Jonathan Neerman (a ...

Watching the Lakers party in Orlando last night - I was wrong about L.A. in 4, but just barely -was a reminder how cruel sports can be. While former Mavericks D.J. Mbenga and Josh Powell hugged and kissed the NBA's Larry O'Brien championship trophy, current Maverick Dirk Nowitzki is l ... More >>

Patrick MichelsWe're thinking Dirk's probably had better days. Talking to reporters after the Mavericks' morning practice, Dirk Nowitzki didn't have much to add to reports that Cristal Taylor, the woman arrested at his home yesterday, is in fact his pregnant fiancee."It's pretty obvious I'm going th ...

Patrick MichelsDown, but not out.Dirk Nowitzki bought her a ring. Bought her a dog. Bought her entire pack of lies. Sad to say, he went for Crystal Cristal Taylor's exaggerated, elaborate head fake. Couple of weeks ago the Dallas Mavericks' star gave an in-depth interview to the German newspape ... More >>
Dumb and Dumber.Dear Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith and Chris Webber, And I mean this is the nicest way possible: Shut the fuck up! At the very least, actually listen before talking. Who knows, you might not make complete asshohles of yourselves next time. We all wish Mavs' star Dirk ... More >>
In hindsight, Dirk Nowitzki vs. Matt Bonner was a laugher.On second thought, forget The Alamo. And the San Antonio Spurs. What began as a competitive series that some of us skeptics thought the Spurs would win in seven games magically morphed into a hockey power play. Afforded basically a 5-o ... 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 >>
The Mavs better find a way to exorcise their old demon after suffering a Game 2 playoff loss against the Spurs
Whether you're at the end of your rope or merely the end of your week, welcome to Whitt's End: *Dallas Police Chief David Kunkel can apologize all he wants for the indefensible actions of Robert Powell, but unless the officer is fired it will be a complete and utter injustice. Powell, who detai ... More >>
In between the few highlights of an entirely underwhelming college football championship game between what looked like two very average quarterbacks, I sneaked some peeks last night at your Dallas Mavericks. What'd I see? Another win, pushing their record to an impressive 22-13. Another ... More >>
