Dallas Mavericks

  1. Caron Butler, Rudy Gay both to return to court soon

    Sep 19, 2011, 6:40 PM EDT

    Caron Butler

    Rudy Gay and Caron Butler both were the best perimeter players on their team. Both went down with injuries in the regular season, and both injuries were thought to doom their squad when the playoffs rolled around. Both teams then went on to have franchise-best playoff runs without their stars. Now, both are going to…

  2. Nowitzki taking break, will not sign overseas until November

    Sep 19, 2011, 10:26 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki EuroBasket

    Dirk Nowitzki is tired. Not to go all Lili Von Shtupp on you, but he’s tired of being admired; tired of love uninspired; let’s face it, he’s tired. After a run all the way to the NBA championships he partied all over the globe, then after a short break there was a few weeks of…

  3. Muggsy Bogues has $3.6 million thank yous for Mark Cuban

    Sep 16, 2011, 7:59 PM EDT

    muggsy-bogues

    Fans are divided on Mark Cuban, same with national pundits. Some consider him brash and rebellious, but those same people would kill to have them own their favorite team. Players? They love him. Which brings us to Muggsy Bogues, your favorite 5’3” guard. You remember him, he played for 14 NBA seasons, most in Charlotte.…

  4. Sebastian Telfair wants to play for a contender. Don’t we all?

    Sep 16, 2011, 8:46 AM EDT

    Sebastian Telfair

    Sebastian Telfair will be a free agent when the lockout ends, and there will be some demand for him to come in as a backup point guard. The man will get paid. Maybe not as much as he hoped under whatever the new labor deal looks like, but he will get paid. But of course,…

  5. Jason Kidd wants to play “two or three” more seasons

    Sep 12, 2011, 9:39 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Jason Kidd will turn 39 next March, and last season father time started to catch up with the old man and his game (he shot just 36.1 percent for the season, for example). But he’s a cagey veteran who can still lead, play some physical defense, make the right pass and knock down threes —…

  6. If you want to win in the NBA, forget point guards. Go big.

    Sep 5, 2011, 6:12 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Utah Jazz, - Game 4

    During the summer, we get a buzz watching John Wall say he is back and slash through guys at the Goodman league. Or watching Brandon Jennings cut it up at the Drew League. We relate to the normal sized guy who can find a way to get it done in the NBA. We love Derrick…

  7. Pau Gasol doesn’t feel he needs redemption after playoffs

    Aug 31, 2011, 12:26 PM EDT

    Spain's Pau Gasol dribbles against Lithuania's Darius Songaila during their men's international friendly basketball game in the new arena in Kaunas

    Pau Gasol looked like the most polished big man on the planet Wednesday in Lithuania, dropping 29 points on Poland on just 12 shots, plus grabbing seven rebounds. Which is a far cry from how he season ended for the Lakers and Gasol, when they were unceremoniously swept out of the playoffs by the Dallas…

  8. Mark Cuban says Dallas outcoached Miami in finals

    Aug 30, 2011, 11:42 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls

    The longer the lockout lasts, the longer Mark Cuban gets to bask in the glow of being the owner of the NBA Champions. Sure, the whole “I can’t talk about my players or David Stern will hammer me with fines” part is no fun, but Cuban is loving this winning a title thing. Like when…

  9. Nowitzki given Germany’s highest sporting honor

    Aug 29, 2011, 2:31 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki Wurzburg Germany

    See what winning a ring can get you? A Silver Laurel Leaf. Which is a huge deal to Dirk Nowitzki. The Silver Laurel Leaf is the highest honor Germany can give its sporting heroes, and Nowitzki got one, according to ESPN Dallas. German President Christian Wulff presented Nowitzki with the Silver Laurel Leaf, praising the…

  10. Rodrigue Beaubois still recovering from second foot surgery

    Aug 25, 2011, 1:50 PM EDT

    111062809_crop_340x234

    For a championship team, the Dallas Mavericks had their fair share of injury turmoil last season. Dirk Nowitzki‘s relatively minor mid-season injury is the kind of obstacle that effective teams can overcome, but losing Caron Butler — who had arguably been the team’s second best player — for the season was an incredibly substantial setback,…

  11. Ricky Rubio rolls ankle during EuroBasket tune-ups

    Aug 24, 2011, 10:51 AM EDT

    Spain's basketball player Ricky Rubio talks to the media after the presentation of the Spanish basketball team for the upcoming Eurobasket 2011 championships at Madrid's Arena

    For NBA owners — even during a lockout — this remains a frightening proposition: Their best players getting injured representing their country in international competitions. So far through this summer of Olympic qualifying there have been some injuries but fortunately nothing major. Now you can add the Timberwolves new No. 1 import Ricky Rubio to…

  12. This is not a shock: Rudy Fernandez reportedly signs in Spain

    Aug 15, 2011, 8:40 AM EDT

    Image (1) nba_fernandez_250-thumb-250x185-10016.jpg for post 2188

    Rudy Fernandez was trying to find a way back to Spain last summer, his agent and he getting fined thanks to public demands, but with a couple years left on his NBA deal there was no path. The lockout has provided him one. There have been rumors for a while now that Fernandez was looking…

  13. Mark Cuban goes to Dyckman… for about thirty seconds before lockout rules made him leave

    Aug 14, 2011, 3:30 PM EDT

    The 2011 ESPY Awards - Show

    DyckmanPark has been as much of a hangout for NBA players opening classrooms on streetball courts as anywhere else. So much so that Mark Cuban decided to make a pit-stop by the place to see some basketball. For about thirty seconds. From ESPN.com: The standing-room only crowd showed Cuban love as he entered with security…

  14. Report: Chinese team offers Nowitzki $1.5 million a month

    Aug 9, 2011, 9:58 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    It’s been expected that if Dirk Nowitzki decides to play overseas during the lockout, he would return to his native Germany. Bayern Munich reportedly has had interest as would plenty of teams. But could he turn down $1.5 million per month? That is what the Zhejiang Lions of the Chinese Basketball Association are reportedly offering…

  15. Things did not go well in the early Tyson Chandler-Mavericks talks

    Aug 6, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks Victory Parade

    Saying that Tyson Chandler won the Mavericks an NBA title would not be far off. You can’t point to him as the sole difference maker, but then, this a team sport, who is? (A: Jordan) But he was in large part the biggest differential in the Mavericks teams that had failed for ten years and…

  16. Tyson Chandler no fan of the NBA’s age limit

    Aug 4, 2011, 2:19 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks Victory Parade

    Tyson Chandler jumped straight from high school to the NBA, the No. 2 overall pick in 2001. He and Eddy Curry were going to be the future of the Knicks. I don’t need to remind you how that went. Chandler is why the owners like the age limit — he has developed into a very…

  17. Bruce Pearl could coach Maverick’s D-League team

    Aug 2, 2011, 7:04 PM EDT

    Tennessee v Michigan

    Bruce Pearl cannot commit any recruiting violations as the coach of the Texas Legends of the D-League. And the former Tennessee head coach could get that gig coaching the Mavericks’ D-League affiliate, according to Marc Stein at ESPN. The Texas Legends are making a hard push to hire former Tennessee coach Bruce Pearl to replace…

  18. Rudy Fernandez talking to Real Madrid. Again.

    Aug 2, 2011, 10:21 AM EDT

    0920-rudy-fernandez-300

    Much to the disappointment of drunk women sitting courtside everywhere, Rudy Fernandez is thinking about jumping to Spain. Again. Fernandez, who spent last summer trying to get out of his NBA deal, spent part of this summer negotiating with Real Madrid. Then he said he promised to fulfill his NBA contract, which has one season…

  19. Caron Butler’s agent says the Mavs want a long-term deal

    Jul 27, 2011, 6:00 PM EDT

    Caron Butler

    There are a couple things that could make Dallas better next season — whenever that is — than the team that just got to lift the Larry O’Brien trophy over their heads. One is the return of Caron Butler from knee surgery. Do you know what the best starting five-man unit in the entire NBA…

  20. Report: Two teams fined for speaking about players

    Jul 20, 2011, 8:15 PM EDT

    no talking

    It was bound to happen — David Stern is a stickler for his rules. One of his rules was team officials cannot even talk about players during the lockout. (Go look at NBA.com and try to find a picture of a current player.) Now two teams have gotten their wrist slapped for this, tweeted Yahoo’s…

  21. Yep, Jason Terry is developing a reality show

    Jul 20, 2011, 5:24 PM EDT

    Jason Terry, who won the NBA Finals after getting the trophy tattooed on his bicep, is clearly not a man who lacks confidence on the court. Now it looks like Terry is bringing that confidence to an extracurricular project that seems like something of a long shot to become a success. The news comes via…

  22. Top five unrestricted free agents… where will they go?

    Jul 20, 2011, 3:15 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    Free agency is not going to be as much fun this time around. Whenever the owners and players get around to settling the lockout the free agency period will be condensed and hectic. Not that I really miss the drama of Lebron dragging out his decision, but it’s fun to watch things break over a…

  23. Miami gets cakewalk early (and other schedule thoughts)

    Jul 19, 2011, 6:05 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Detroit Pistons

    The NBA’s schedule for the season is out and for at least one day we are going to ignore those ominous lockout clouds and pretend it’s just another sunny July day. With a full season ahead of us. With that, some follow up thoughts after our first glance post earlier today. • The Miami Heat…

  24. NBA Schedule released, here are your highlights

    Jul 19, 2011, 2:50 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    This NBA season is shaping up to be a fun one. Yes, we know, we know… IF there is an NBA season. But deep down we want to believe that the owners and players are too smart to piss away all the momentum the league has built up. For today we’re going to move ahead…

  25. How about Bulls vs. Mavericks to open NBA season?

    Jul 18, 2011, 12:28 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Chicago Bulls

    The NBA schedule for next season will get released in full on Tuesday — write that down in pencil — but little bits are getting leaked out now. Like an NBA finals rematch on Christmas Day. Looks like the Bulls will open their season against the Dirk Nowitizki and the defending world champions on Nov.…
