    Dirk Nowitzki Goes on Drinking Binges? You Don't Say!

    ​Still amazed that the Mavericks won the NBA championship. Still surprised they did it without a playoff point from Roddy Beaubois (who should be ready for 2011-12 training camp in October after another foot surgery). And I continue to be miffed at how little the sports world really knew abo ... More >>

    2011 NBA FINALS GAME 4: Better Bench. Or Else.

    ​Simple. If their reserve players don't perform better, the Mavericks will lose the NBA Finals. And that starts tonight in Game 4 at the American Airlines Center. Jason Terry has to be more productive than the player who has shot only 38 percent and failed to produce a 20-point game. But who ... More >>
