Dallas Mavericks

  1. Mark Cuban pitches in to help find Dallas rapist

    Jun 29, 2011, 3:42 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Sacramento Kings

    It’s an ugly story in amongst all the great things that happened in Dallas around the Mavericks winning their first NBA title — a woman who had gone to a Dallas bar to watch Game 6 was severely beaten and raped walking back to her car after the game. A reward fund was set up…

  2. Video: See Dirk Nowitzki celebrated in his home town

    Jun 29, 2011, 8:53 AM EST

    Dirk Nowitzki Wurzburg Germany

    Dirk Nowitzki still not particularly good at singing “We are the Champions” but nobody in Wurzburg, Germany, really cares. Wurzburg is Nowitzki’s home town and they threw a parade and party in his honor Tuesday for winning an NBA title. The crowd in the town square is totally into it, chanting MVP and singing along. Probably singing…

  3. NBA’s championship DVD out, if you can’t get enough Dirk

    Jun 28, 2011, 4:25 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks Victory Parade

    The official NBA Dallas Mavericks Championship DVD is out, with plenty of Dirk Nowitzki one-legged turnaround jumpers and Jason Terry showing off his ink. The fine folks at the NBA.com site released a trailer for the DVD. We thought we’d bring that to you rather than just give you another lockout story. Bookmark this post…

  4. Casey will use advanced stats, get Raptors to play defense

    Jun 28, 2011, 2:39 PM EST

    Dwane Casey smiles after being introduced as the new head coach of the Raptors in Toronto

    Put me in the group of NBA bloggers who wanted to see Dwane Casey get another chance at the big seat. First off, he did a pretty good job in the big seat the first time but got thrown to the sidelines because an owner misread how much talent his team really had. And in…

  5. Nowitzki’s hometown in Germany throwing him parade

    Jun 28, 2011, 10:12 AM EST

    A fan holds a placard which reads "Wuerzburg loves Dirk" ..

    There’s going to be quite the party in Wurzburg, Bavaria, Tuesday. And it’s not even October. Wurzburg is the hometown of Dirk Nowitzki, and the best basketball player that city has ever produced has returned home for a parade in his honor, according to Marc Stein of ESPN. Nowitzki flew home over the weekend after…

  6. Rodrigue Beaubois to undergo foot surgery. Again.

    Jun 27, 2011, 11:35 AM EST

    roddybeaubois

    One reason the Dallas Mavericks could repeat as champions — they should get their two most dynamic wing players back from injury next season. Caron Butler is one. Rodrigue Beaubois is the other — but not until he has another foot surgery, according Sports.fr (a French sports site). Beaubois missed most of last season after…

  7. Video: Mark Cuban wants to sign Optimus Prime

    Jun 27, 2011, 9:44 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

    This new commercial has movie tie ins, ESPN tie ins, and it makes Mark Cuban the first person from the Mavericks to get a commercial after the team won the NBA title. Which is fair, since he really needs the money. The new ESPN/Transformers 3 commercial is getting posted here because I thought it was…

  8. Barea says he’d sign with Dallas… or the Lakers, or Heat

    Jun 23, 2011, 3:25 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Every NBA finals there is one player used brilliantly by his team who has a big playoffs, happens to be a free agent, gets overpaid and is asked to play a bigger role with another team. It doesn’t always work as planned. J.J. Barea is perfectly poised to be that guy. The Mavericks want to…

  9. Mavericks fan gets Nowitzki’s face tattooed on his… um… behind

    Jun 23, 2011, 1:59 PM EST

    Nowitizki tattoo

    Someday he is going to have to explain why he has the face of a German man tattooed on his a– to a woman, but for now we will just admire his committment to his Mavericks fandom. One Mavericks fan got a tattoo of Dirk Nowtizki’s face on his derriere. He explained his thinking to the…

  10. Mark Cuban and the “we’re the champs” legal defense

    Jun 22, 2011, 1:58 PM EST

    Mavericks owner Mark Cuban polishes the championship trophy during an event held to celebrate their 2011 NBA championship in Dallas, Texas

    Even in court, Mark Cuban is bragging about his championship. And being damn funny. Remember that Cuban is being sued by Ross Perot Jr., the son of the former presidential candidate and a five percent owner of the Mavericks. His partnership (Hillwood Center Partnership) used to own the majority of the Mavericks but sold to…

  11. Video: The NBA Champs, on a plane

    Jun 21, 2011, 5:06 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks Victory Parade

    Now this looks like a fun plane ride. Click the video to see Dirk Nowitzki wearing a finger splint, some intense specs, and a shirt that says “I’m that dude,”‘ Jason Terry apparently smoking a cigar on an airplane, Mark Cuban sitting next to the trophy, Brian Cardinal and Tyson Chandler eating Lucky Charms, and…

  12. Not a surprise but now official: Casey to coach Raptors

    Jun 21, 2011, 2:13 PM EST

    dwane Casey

    We’ve been telling you this was coming since last week, everybody except your mom has been telling you Mavericks assistant Dwane Casey would coach the Raptors since last week.

  14. President did call Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle

    Jun 18, 2011, 3:00 PM EST

    Image (1) obama-thumb-250x140-11530.jpg for post 1943

    Getting a call from the President of the United States (and getting to visit the White House during the next season) is one of the perks of winning an NBA title. Traditionally the call is a pretty perfunctory thing — but with Barack Obama in the White House it’s a little different. He knows the…

  15. Video: Enjoy the Dallas Mavericks championship Parade

    Jun 17, 2011, 11:36 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks Victory Parade

    What more is there to say — they earned it. Miami didn’t lose it, Dallas won it. To the victors go the spoils. And the parade through Dallas (for which Mark Cuban picked up the tab). Enjoy. You know the city of Dallas did.

    Jun 17, 2011, 4:09 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    The Dallas Mavericks players have waiting too long for their championship rings (or whatever they get) to go Ron Artest and action the hardware off for charity. But Jason Terry is willing give up his shoes worn in Game 6 and is auctioning them off (current bid $1,400.. come on, you can beat that). (via…

  17. PBT Friday morning one liners

    Jun 17, 2011, 11:11 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Five

    Trying to understand the hatred directed at LeBron James has been a hot topic in recent days, and Forbes Magazine has taken up the issue. Maybe my favorite of the LeBron discussions was between Dan Shanoff and Sherwood Strauss. Jason Terry wants the Mavericks to retire his jersey. (Um, if you have to ask for…

    Jun 17, 2011, 12:13 AM EST

    dwane Casey

All that according to tweets from the reliable Marc Stein of ESPN. Mavs assistant coach Dwane Casey has emerged…

    DeShawn Stevenson

    After being arrested for public intoxication on Tuesday night, Dallas Mavericks shooting guard and 2011 NBA Champion DeShawn Stevenson opened up about his arrest on Wednesday: “A couple cops came up to me, asked me was I drunk,” Stevenson said. “I said no but I had a couple drinks.

  20. Video: 10 best dunks of the NBA finals

    Jun 15, 2011, 3:23 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    Let’s take one more video trip back to the NBA finals, because these teams were throwing it down. Literally. There were some fantastic dunks. That includes LeBron actually attacking the rim (so, you know, not stuff from the fourth quarter) plus some Dirk Nowitzki being Dirk Nowtizki. Enjoy.

  21. Can Dallas repeat? Yes, but the path will be harder.

    Jun 15, 2011, 2:12 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    The Dallas Mavericks are basking in the glow of their first ever championship — taking part in a championship parade, going to the bathroom with the Larry O’Brien trophy and getting arrested. You know, all the good stuff. But the question has already come up — can they do it again. The Mavericks think so.…

  23. Kidd says LeBron gets “bumps, bruises” now, rings later

    Jun 15, 2011, 11:59 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Jason Kidd knows about being on the doorstep and losing. He led the New Jersey Nets to the finals two straight seasons playing some fantastic ball, only to run into the buzzsaw that was the Kobe/Shaq Lakers and the Duncan/Robinson Spurs. He was patient, kept evolving his game (as his athleticism faded his outside shot…

  24. J.J. Barea wants to stay in Dallas, but choice may be hard

    Jun 15, 2011, 11:15 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Every playoffs, some unexpected free agent to be has a fantastic run, one where he is used properly by his current coach, another GM seems to fall in love with his game watching the playoffs then he gets overpaid coming into next season. Meet J.J. Barea. The diminutive point guard from Puerto Rico slashed and…
