    Somebody is going to hire Dwane Casey and be glad they did. He is the coach behind the defensive schemes that just earned Dallas a ring (or whatever they are getting). Detroit is going to interview the Dallas assistant, according to Ken Berger at CBS. Mike Woodson has been considered a front-runner there, former Pistons…

  2. Is Erik Spoelstra’s job in danger? It shouldn’t be.

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    In Miami, the blame has to go somewhere. LeBron James is getting a heaping share. So are all the role players. But you can’t fire LeBron and in the NBA when teams don’t live up to expectations it is the coach whose job is on the line. Fair or not. There are those wondering if…

  3. Mark Cuban may not do championship rings

    Jun 13, 2011, 3:56 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Dirk Nowitzki, Jason Kidd, Tyson Chandler, Brendan Haywood, Shawn Marion, Jason Terry, all those Dallas Mavericks veterans who have chased rings through their entire career… they may not get them. Oh, they get to call themselves champions, they get the chip and the bragging rights. But on NBA TV after the game last night Mark…

    Miami Herald Heat ad

    Oh Macy’s, you haven’t had this kind of bad publicity since you tried to have the real Santa Claus committed to an insane asylum. In Monday’s Miami Herald there is a big ad congratulating the Miami Heat on their championship and telling you that you can get your Miami Heat championship gear at the store.…

  5. Nation tunes in to see Heat fail, television ratings up

    Jun 13, 2011, 2:14 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisl

    America loves some good schadenfreude. Miami Heat and LeBron James were on the brink of being knocked out and the nation wanted to watch, which is why the television ratings for Game 6 were the highest for a Game 6 in 11 years (the first of the Lakers three-pete titles with Shaq and Kobe). (Look,…

    NBA Finals Mavericks Heat Basketball

    Mark Cuban should be enjoying all this. And he was, if you read his tweets — he even went to bed with the Larry O’Brien trophy (the NBA championship hardware). this will sound weird. Im laying in bed. with the trophy next me.#dreamcometrue Then an hour later… cant sleep. just thinking. In the immortal words…

  7. Post game video from Miami Heat, Dallas Mavericks

    Jun 13, 2011, 11:49 AM EST

    APTOPIX NBA Finals Mavericks Heat Basketball

    The Dallas Heat sounded like the veterans they are, albeit ones overwhelmed by the moment. The Miami Heat sounded hurt, except for LeBron James who sounded a little defiant to all those “haters” out there. Below is some of the post game press conferences from players on both team — including James saying what he…

  8. The Miami Heat will be back. Sorry, it is true.

    Jun 13, 2011, 10:50 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    People around the nation are celebrating at the demise of the Miami Heat. The narrative that it is poetic justice for a team of veterans that played smart and was better than the sum of their parts would defeat the Heat seemed like poetic justice for many. But Miami will be back. They are only…

  9. Video: Jason Terry takes over in Game 6

    Jun 13, 2011, 9:51 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Dirk Nowitzki was having one of those nights. Dallas needed to win Game 7 (they didn’t want to give Miami life) and their star and best scorer couldn’t find his rhythm. Enter Jason Terry. The former Sixth Man of the Year came in and started to light it up, hitting everything on his way to…

  10. League to review tape of Heat, Mavs altercation

    Jun 13, 2011, 9:42 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    The good news is nobody is getting suspended from Game 7. But the league is going to review the tape from an altercation that started between DeShawn Stevenson and Udonis Haslem in the second quarter. If someone did leave the bench to enter the fray they could face a fine and be suspended at the…

  11. LeBron has a few arrogant words for those who hate him

    Jun 13, 2011, 8:15 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    It seemed like most of America was rooting against LeBron James. The Decision. The pep rally. The air of arrogance around him and the team coming into the season. It turned people off. A lot of people. Most of America. When asked after the game (in an interview broadcast on NBA TV) about how it…

  12. In Dirk Nowitzki’s moment

    Jun 13, 2011, 3:41 AM EST

    Screen shot 2011-06-13 at 2.34.22 AM

    Dirk Nowitzki will never hear the end of the question. In the ensuing days, weeks, months, and even years, he’ll be posed the same inquiry over and over, so many times that his answer will grow repetitive but never robotic. The very thought will always invoke the same emotion he felt on this night, this…

  13. Dallas won the title, Miami didn’t lose it

    Jun 13, 2011, 3:15 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    The story was not the Dallas Mavericks and their incredible shooting, it was the Lakers collapse. Then it was how the Thunder were not ready. Now, it was how the Miami Heat lacked discipline, could not execute at the end of games and how LeBron James faltered. That’s not what the story should be. The…

  14. NBA Playoffs: Heat’s lack of discipline ends their season

    Jun 13, 2011, 12:37 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    The Miami Heat were the most talented team in the NBA this past season. They were two fourth-quarter collapses away from sweeping the NBA Finals. None of that matters after they lost Game 6 by a final score of 105-95, and the series by a final score of 4-2. Miami’s losses in Game 2 and…

  15. Dallas may have won last old-school title for while

    Jun 13, 2011, 12:07 AM EST

    APTOPIX NBA Finals Mavericks Heat Basketball

    Dallas won it all. They earned it. They get the banner and the rings (if they do rings) and the bragging rights. They earned them. But everybody wants to be Miami. Not the fans. Outside of South Florida the Heat the Heat are despised, treated with the same venom usually reserved for politicians who text…

  16. Dallas Mavericks are your new NBA Champions

    Jun 12, 2011, 11:12 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Dallas was the best team. The Dallas Mavericks got contributions from their superstar Dirk Nowitzki, but they also got a huge game from Jason Terry, solid play from everyone — even Brian Cardinal and Ian Mahinmi in Game 6 — and they won 105-95 to take the NBA finals 4-2. Mark Cuban — who turned…

  17. NBA Finals: Three things to get LeBron James going

    Jun 12, 2011, 12:03 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    There’s a lot of scrutiny on LeBron James‘ intangibles. How much effort he’s put in during these Finals. How much patience. How much intensity. How much focus. Is his head right? It goes on and on and on, ignoring the fact that the Mavericks have game-planned for James about as well as you can. They’ve…

  18. Video: Heat, Mavericks talk about Game 6

    Jun 11, 2011, 8:12 PM EST

    LeBron James, Dwyane Wade

    This is “now or never” LeBron. A real now or never. Dallas enters Game 6 with a chance to end the series, while the Heat look to force a Game 7. Below is a video of guys from both teams looking ahead to Game 6. But wait, there’s more! For that same fantastic low price,…

  19. NBA finals: Miami will execute at the end of Game 6 or the season ends

    Jun 11, 2011, 7:38 PM EST

    jason-terry-game-5

    One stat sums up why we are one more Mavericks win away from seeing David Stern hand the Larry O’Brien trophy over to Mark Cuban: In the final six minutes of Games 2 through 5, Dallas has outscored Miami 60-26. These have been incredibly close games, but with everything on the line Dallas and its veteran lineup…

  20. LeBron James is a little unsure of whether the pressure is getting to him

    Jun 11, 2011, 1:00 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    Let’s get right down to it, shall we? The Miami Herald asked LeBron James if the pressure was “getting to him” whatever that means. His answer was clear, decisive, forceful. And by that I mean it was none of those things: “No, I don’t think so,” James said. Self-correction. “I don’t believe so,” James said. One…

  21. Mark Cuban was right, depth mattered plenty

    Jun 10, 2011, 2:48 PM 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

    Time for some crow. I prefer mine braised with a nice port wine reduction, but nonetheless it is time to eat some. Back before the start of the season, Mavericks owner Mark Cuban was talking about his team’s depth and how that was going to make things different this year. This is a really, really…

  22. Video: LeBron, Wade mock sick Dirk… it’s not a big deal

    Jun 10, 2011, 12:26 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    The NBA world is watching and talking about this video today, in the brilliant words of SBN’s Tom Ziller it is blowing up like a meth lab. So we bring it to you. This news broadcast below — taken BEFORE Game 5 — has video of LeBron James and Dwyane Wade walking out of the…

  23. History says Miami has a real chance to win this

    Jun 10, 2011, 11:27 AM EST

    Lebron James (6) of the Miami Heat makes

    The odds favor the Dallas Mavericks — up 3-2 they need to win just one of the final two games in Miami to win the first title in the franchise’s history. Plus, the way they have been executing at the end of games, they must be considered the favorites. But history says Miami has a…

  24. LeBron James was good, but we expect more of him

    Jun 10, 2011, 10:49 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    The Miami Heat did not lose Thursday night because of LeBron James. But they didn’t win because of him either. That is ultimately the challenge that lies before him — he cannot be merely good, not if he is to meet the expectations put upon him,  ones he encouraged and welcomed — he needs to be…
