The last time the Mavericks overhauled their uniforms it was 2001, and Dirk was still a scrawny, clean-cut German import flanked by Steve Nash and Michael Finley. The previous design was two decades old and carried the reek of futility of the early '90s. There have been a few minor tweaks since the ... More >>
TEXANS CELEBRATE AMERICA - Neither of the pre-game patriotic performances achieved Whitney Houston-level kudos, but both were delivered tastefully and capably. Lindale's Miranda Lambert did some nice harmonizin' with her hubby on "America the Beautiful," and Burleson's Kelly Clarkson shared her Nati ... More >>
Derrick Williams -- The best player availableArizona forward Derrick Williams is a beast. He has 3-point shooting range, can score in the paint with either hand and has an NBA body that can bang and rebound on the low blocks. And that's it. The rest of the 2011 NBA Draft class: Weak t ... More >>

Was just over on Unfair Park reading Schutze's take on the latest missle fired into the hull of the Trinity River Toll Road Waste Of Time Project. From the city that gave us the CueCat, plastic dividers on HOV lanes and P.C. Cobb Stadium downgraded into an InfoMart, this might be our dumbe ... More >>
Snagged this poster during All-Star Weekend '97 in Cleveland. It's the NBA's 50 Greatest Players. Was going over it the other day and wondering how different it would look today? Would Kobe Bryant bump someone off? Who'd get cut? Would Tim Duncan squeeze into the picture? Steve Nash? ... More >>
Because this NBA Playoffs promo, featuring Steve Nash and Jason Kidd, is freaking me out, man. --Robert Wilonsky
See the Mavs take on the Suns
Steve Nash told a London paper last week, "It's not as though there was some irreconcilable divorce with Dallas." Steve Nash said on Friday -- in a Q&A with readers of The Times on London, no less -- that he wouldn't have a problem playing for the Dallas Mavericks again, when his contract with the P ... More >>
The annual NBA.com general managers survey is out, and they're hit-and-miss when it comes to Dallas Maverick Dirk Nowitzki. Of the seven ballers picked as MVP contenders, ain't one of 'em named Dirk; instead, the GMs' early-season picks are, in order, LeBron James, Tim Duncan, Kobe Bryant, Steve Nas ... More >>
Look, I could waste valuable virtual space detailing how one of the poor Rangers’ building blocks -- Nelson Cruz -- has exactly zero homers in 70 at-bats this season. Or I could bore you with fish tales about Tony Romo playing golf. But, I know, what you really want is more sifting through the de ... More >>
Well...not really -- at least, not so far. But according to an "exclusive survey" of NBA general managers just posted at RealGM.com, Dirk Nowitzki did snatch the Most Valuable Player award, just edging out Phoenix Sun and former Mavs teammate and drinking buddy Steve Nash. Dirk got 17 first-place vo ... More >>
This is apparently a "kids small" T-shirt -- or, at least, that's how it's being sold on eBay. Because, yeah, nothing says, "I sure do love you, son" like giving him some woman's, uh, gently used Dallas Cowboys jersey. And if you're so interested, the same a) model, b) stripper or c) elementary-scho ... More >>
Maybe it's time the Mavs' would-be MVP got his Dirk out of the box and played some friggin' crunchtime ball. You can talk about Steve Nash's heroics, Amare Stoudemire's monster game or countless, game-changing, mind-boggling, heart-palpitating plays in what was undoubtedly the best NBA game of the s ...

NBA 2K7 towers over the competition.
That's likely what the newest Maverick will hear when Dallas hosts the (grit your teeth) World Champion Miami Heat and Dwyane Wade February 22 at the American Airlines Center. Devean George, signed from the Los Angeles Lakers last night, will join newcomers Anthony Johnson, Greg Buckner and rookie ... More >>
Founding father may finally see Mavs baby grow up a champ
At last dispatching their 800-pound gorilla, Mavs will soon be NBA's big banana
You've seen the infamous pictures of Dirk Nowitzki and Steve Nash drunk in a bar with a pal taken way back in 2003. Now, I think, comes the unearthing of a tribute song to said friend. There is no way it's real. But I know it's real bad. Otherwise, I'm speechless. --Richie Whitt
Dirk Nowitzki is humming David Hasselhoff. Steve Nash digs Nelly Furtado. And Michael Finley, well, he's singing the blues. Those three once had perfect harmony as the Dallas Mavericks' Big Three, but in a cruel act of irony it's Finley--the one forced out of Dallas--who'll be forced to watch as Dir ... More >>
Think SMU hasn't produced a decent NBA player since, oh, Jon Koncak? Don't sell that load of Peruna droppings to the league's two-time MVP. That's because Phoenix Suns guard Steve Nash is getting his mane all tangled up in a former Mustang named Quinton Ross. In Thursday night's Game 6 of the Suns- ... More >>
