Dallas Mavericks

Degenerate Bet of the Day

Another season. Another empty spot on the Mavs' mantle.

The basketball season officially ends tonight, when the Celtics beat the Lakers in Boston and win the NBA Championship. In a tense, low-scoring game, gimme the Celtics minus the five, under the 191.

For entertainment only, of course.

Then, finally, we can get on to the business of watching Mark Cuban feud some more with Don Nelson and lamenting the fact that the Mavs have no first-round pick in next week’s draft.
