Dallas Mavericks

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.

I remember when the Mavs played the Seattle SuperSonics in the Kingdome in the playoffs during the 1980s and for years I covered Mavs-Spurs games in San Antonio's Alamodome. To me the homecourt advantage just sort of floated away into the open, endless spaces.

Would you go to Arlington for more, meaningful basketball?
