  1. Dallas Mavericks to get rings after all. Old guys rejoice.

    Oct 13, 2011, 9:45 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisl

    The Dallas Mavericks are going to get their rings on opening night after all. Whenever that is. Remember in the aftermath of the Mavericks championship owner Mark Cuban was talking about doing something different, not just giving his players championship rings. That was too old school for Cuban. Except Cuban has an old-school team, so…

  2. Report: Owners pushing for a much tougher luxury tax

    Oct 11, 2011, 6:25 PM EST

    money

    The NBA’s luxury tax is at the heart of why there will be no games the first two weeks of what should have been the NBA season. The owners say a stiffer luxury tax is needed to provide competitive balance in the league (to help the Kings compete with the Lakers). The players say that…

  3. Mark Cuban would consider “Dallas Mavericks Network”

    Oct 11, 2011, 10:09 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is shown on the court before the start of play between the Mavericks and the Miami Heat in Game 3 of the NBA Finals basketball series in Dallas

    Television money is part of the reason David Stern and the league shut down the first couple weeks of the NBA season. There are some big new television deals on the horizon — the Lakers have a massive one that kicks in next season, the Celtics just modified theirs, then there is the national TV…

  4. Some very good games lost to lockout. Thanks a lot, guys.

    Oct 11, 2011, 9:23 AM EST

    Atlanta Hawks v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    With the cancellation of the first two weeks of the season, 100 NBA games went down the drain. Hang an asterisk on this season — these are games commissioner David Stern said are gone. He said there is no chance of making them up. But what games are we now going to miss? How about…

  5. Caron Butler says he would consider playing for Heat

    Oct 10, 2011, 4:27 PM EST

    Caron Butler

    The real point of this story is not Caron Butler, but rather what Caron Butler could represent for the Miami Heat. In speaking with Chris Tomasson of Fox Sports, Butler — the free agent last with the Dallas Mavericks and coming off major knee surgery — said he would consider coming back to play for…

  6. Eddy Curry pulls out of Miami charity game, Caron Butler to play

    Oct 8, 2011, 7:44 PM EST

    New York Knicks Media Day 2010

    Eddy Curry had lost all that weight, reportedly 100 lbs. making him the Biggest Loser in the good way for the first time in his career. His coming out party was supposed to be the charity event in Miami alongside Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, and Mario Chalmers, members (or former in restricted free-agent Mario Chalmers’…

  7. Nowitzki shoots down report he’s talking to Real Madrid

    Oct 7, 2011, 1:40 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks Victory Parade

    Earlier this week reports started to come out of Greece (and repeated other places) that Dirk Nowitzki was talking to European power Real Madrid to play there during the lockout. Nowitzki said he is not. That’s part of a conversation with ESPN’s Marc Stein where the big German talked about his plans if the lockout…

  8. Del Harris to coach Mavericks D-League affiliate

    Oct 4, 2011, 11:10 AM EST

    Del Harris

    The Dallas Mavericks keep bringing in the big names to coach their D-League affiliate the Texas Legends. Last season it was the first woman coach in the league, Nancy Lieberman. She decided to move up to the front office, so former NBA coach of the year Del Harris will step in, the team announced, the…

  9. Dirk Nowitzki has advice for Tony Romo: Ignore the haters

    Oct 3, 2011, 1:14 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Tony Romo is getting hit harder by Dallas fans Monday than any time he did Sunday. The Cowboys choked away a 24-point lead against the Lions and the Dallas quarterback is taking fire from his own people like he he was a South American dictator. Romo has no friends in Dallas. Well, he has one.…

  10. Rudy Fernandez considers next season a “test” for Dallas

    Sep 27, 2011, 11:16 AM EST

    Rudy Fernandez goggles

    Rudy Fernandez can pretty much walk around singing some Gomez — “And that’s OK, at least I’ve got options.” To start this season he will be playing for Real Madrid (unless the owners and players union solve the lockout in the next week… so Fernandez can go ahead buy those non-refundable tickets to Spain). When…

  11. Jason Terry wants to make sure Mavs bring Stevenson back

    Sep 22, 2011, 12:22 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    The conventional wisdom has been that when looking at which of the Dallas Mavericks six free agents the team bring back for next season, Tyson Chandler is on the top of the list (as he should be). DeShawn Stevenson was near the bottom. But that’s not the way Jason Terry sees it. Terry, Dallas’ spark…

  12. Jason Terry will re-sign with Dallas, leverage be damned

    Sep 20, 2011, 5:26 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game One

    Jason Terry is one of the pessimists. He doesn’t want to be, but like a lot of players who were disappointed after last week’s negotiating session he’s not sure the owners and players are that close to a deal. But whenever the two sides do make a deal, he is going to re-sign with the…

  13. J.J. Barea says he likely will return to Mavericks next season

    Sep 20, 2011, 11:26 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    J.J. Barea fits the mold of a guy who is going to get overpaid on his next contract based on his playoff performance right before he became a free agent. Barea was a spark off the bench for the Mavericks on their run to a title, averaging 8.9 points per game in the post season.…

  14. Mavericks’ Rudy Fernandez signs deal with Real Madrid

    Sep 20, 2011, 10:56 AM EST

    Spain's Rudy Fernandez drinks chapmpagne

    This should not come as a surprise to anybody. After Rudy Fernandez spent all of last summer trying to get Portland to release him so he could return to the Spanish League, he has used the lockout to return to the Spanish League. Probably should have seen that one coming. What we told you was…

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

    Sep 19, 2011, 6:40 PM EST

    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…

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

    Sep 19, 2011, 10:26 AM EST

    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…

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

    Sep 16, 2011, 7:59 PM EST

    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.…

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

    Sep 16, 2011, 8:46 AM EST

    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,…

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

    Sep 12, 2011, 9:39 AM EST

    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 —…

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

    Sep 5, 2011, 6:12 PM EST

    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…

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

    Aug 31, 2011, 12:26 PM EST

    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…

  22. Mark Cuban says Dallas outcoached Miami in finals

    Aug 30, 2011, 11:42 AM EST

    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…

  23. Nowitzki given Germany’s highest sporting honor

    Aug 29, 2011, 2:31 PM EST

    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…

  24. Rodrigue Beaubois still recovering from second foot surgery

    Aug 25, 2011, 1:50 PM EST

    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,…

  25. Ricky Rubio rolls ankle during EuroBasket tune-ups

    Aug 24, 2011, 10:51 AM EST

    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…
