    And Then – Just Like That – There Were Only Three Candidates to Coach Mavs

    Too much to ask for this guy? Guess so. According to Mike Fisher – as Mavs-connected as anyone in this town -- over at DallasBasketball.com, the Mavs have narrowed their coaching search to Mike D’Antoni, Rick Carlisle and Jeff Van Gundy. Two reactions: 1. Dang that was fast. 2. ... More >>

    The Dallas Mavericks' Official Release Concerning Avery Johnson's Official Release

    Avery Johnson, picking up his Coach of the Year award two years ago. Which seems like a million years ago. Either Mavs owner Mark Cuban takes the suggestions of Unfair Park (and everyone else with eyes) pretty damn seriously, or else Avery Johnson’s dismissal had become that obvious. Probably the ...

    Miami Twice

    Assorted notes, quotes and anecdotes from a Thursday night at American Airlines Center that ended in a Mavs blowout win over the Miami Heat, an effortless season sweep and this sobering thought: How the hell did we lose to that team in The Finals?

    Richie doesn't believe Dwyane Wade's injury is real, but he does believe Minnie Mouse is a highly undervalued hottie. Ah-ha! Turns out karma is indeed a bitch. And, apparently, part German.

    Bummer Summer

    I know what I'm not doing Thursday night: watching ABC's lame-ass, over-promoted Master of Champions. And because the Mavs weren't as mature or as mentally invincible as they tricked us into thinking for nine months, I also won't be watching Game 7 of the NBA Finals. The Mavs' complete collapse from ... More >>

    Thanks for Everything. And for Nothing.

    Do you really need a cutline here? When I was a kid and the Cowboys or Mavericks or even Rangers would lose so much as a home game, I didn't want to know about it the next day.

    Looks like Dwyane Wade did not forget his balls last night. What, you didn't think your Dallas Mavericks were going to sweep the Miami Heat; who are you, anyway, Tim Cowlishaw?
