Dallas Mavericks

  1. Just how good are the Lakers? Ask again in a week.

    Mar 5, 2011, 11:10 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Los Angeles Lakers

    Has anyone figured out these Lakers? Last year’s Lakers had the swagger and game of a champion from the start (despite some in-season lapses). These Lakers are much harder to figure out — they beat the Celtics in Boston, but lose to the Cavaliers. Pau Gasol is Black Swan and White Swan. Andrew Bynum’s focus…

  2. Video: Dirk Nowitzki Boom. Winning.

    Mar 4, 2011, 1:38 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    How hot — in a can’t stop watching the train wreck kind of way — is Charlie Sheen? And by that I really mean how hot is mocking Charlie Sheen? Apparently hot enough that Dirk Nowitzki and the creative Dallas Mavericks marketing team are on board. They mock Mr. Winning in a new video. And…

  3. Mavericks make it official, sign Corey Brewer

    Mar 3, 2011, 5:20 PM EDT

    Corey Brewer

    It was just a formality at this point, Corey Brewer had been in negotiations with the Mavericks for a couple of days. Now it’s official, Brewer is part of the Dallas Mavericks, the team announced. This is a three-year deal expected to be in the $7 million range (starting at about $2 million a year),…

  4. Mavericks “closing in” on a deal with Corey Brewer

    Mar 2, 2011, 6:15 PM EDT

    Corey Brewer Sweater

    According to Marc Stein of ESPN.com, the Dallas Mavericks are closing in on a multi-year deal with swingman Corey Brewer, who was recently bought out by the New York Knicks. The deal is expected to be in the “7-8 million range.” According to Stein, Dallas’ ability to pay Brewer more than the Spurs or Celtics…

  5. Tyson Chandler tweaks ankle against Sixers, out two games

    Mar 2, 2011, 2:11 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat

    UPDATED: March 2, 2:11 pm: The good news is that X-rays on Chandler’s ankle were negative. But the bad news is he will be out at least two more games, according to the Dallas Morning News. Those games are against the Pacers and the surging Grizzlies. That Grizzlies game starts a four-games-in-five-nights stretch for Dallas,…

  6. Corey Brewer sweepstakes a crowded one

    Mar 2, 2011, 10:30 AM EDT

    coreybrewer

    Everyone knew that Troy Murphy was going to get a buyout and that Mike Bibby was going to do whatever it took to get out of Washington. But Corey Brewer being bought out by the Knicks was a surprise. He came to the Knicks as part of the Carmelo Anthony deal, we assumed because the…

  7. NBA Power Rankings: Trade deadline edition

    Feb 28, 2011, 1:33 PM EDT

    Manu Ginobili, Tim Duncan

    The trade deadline shook the league last week, and the ripple impacts our NBA Power Rankings. But at the top it is all Texas. 1. Spurs (49-10, Last Week #2). No deadline moves for this group, nor should there have been. They are 6 games up on the Mavericks and Celtics for best record in…

  8. Report: Devin Harris likely headed to Dallas

    Feb 23, 2011, 10:09 AM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Boston Celtics

    Devin Harris became enough of a star in Dallas that the Nets thought they were getting something of real value in the Jason Kidd deal a few years back. Now, looks like New Jersey has seen enough Harris and he is headed back tot Big D. Harris is going to get moved and Dallas is…

  9. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Derrick Rose kicks his MVP campaign into high gear

    Feb 18, 2011, 9:35 AM EDT

    Derrick Rose, Tony Parker

    What you missed while wondering just how screwed up a world it is that the Kardashians made $65 million last year… Bulls 109, Spurs 99: For two of the better defensive teams in the league there was a whole lot of offense going on in this one. Both teams create serious matchup problems for the…

  10. Contenders, pretenders, wish-it-would-enders — taking stock of the NBA at the break

    Feb 18, 2011, 3:33 AM EDT

    Dwyane Wade, LeBron James

    Welcome to All-Star Weekend, when the NBA takes a break from playing games to talk about trades. And hear about the great parties that the players went to. Then talk about more trades. Then watch an exhibition with less defense than a Cavs-Raptors game. For the rest of us, it’s a good time to take…

  11. The other Carmelo Anthony trade wild card: Mark Cuban

    Feb 16, 2011, 12:35 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Denver Nuggets, Game 2

    There’s a lot of reasons we like Mark Cuban. He’s smart. He’s not afraid to buck the system. He’s accessible. He’s reasonably forthcoming (certainly in comparison to most owners). And he’s unpredictable. That unpredictability is one reason people don’t think the Mavericks are out of the Carmelo Anthony sweepstakes. The Mavericks need a wing scorer,…

  12. Roddy Beaubois to play for Mavericks Wednesday

    Feb 15, 2011, 2:05 PM EDT

    roddybeaubois

    The Dallas Mavericks have a better record than the Los Angeles Lakers, but good luck finding someone outside of outside of northeast Texas that thinks they can win a playoff series if the two meet. Thing is, we still haven’t seen the full, healthy Dallas Mavericks. We don’t know how good they really are. But…

  13. Video: Arron Afflalo’s game winner ends Mavericks’ streak

    Feb 11, 2011, 10:01 AM EDT

    Arron Afflalo, Francisco Elson

    This is about as clutch a regular season shot as you are going to see. Watch the play develop for Chauncey Billups to come off a Nene screen, while Arron Afflalo stands ready for the corner three. But the play breaks down and Afflalo moves up so he can become a pressure outlet. Which Billups…

  14. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Arron Afflalo kills the Mavericks streak

    Feb 11, 2011, 8:48 AM EDT

    Arron Afflalo, Denver Nuggets

    What you missed while wondering if your dog ate your toes…. The Lakers getting a win — not a statement, just a win — against Boston is our Game of the Night. Mavericks 121, Nuggets 120: Arron Afflalo is a great story. Back at UCLA he was the man — they ran him off double…

  15. Mavs vs. Food

    Feb 9, 2011, 11:40 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    If you are not watching the Travel Channel’s Man vs. Food then you don’t love good, old-fashioned oversized American portions of fat and carb loaded food. (Which probably means you’ll love a lot longer and healthier life, if you’re into those kind of things). Someone in Dallas is watching. Of course they are, Texas is…

  16. Roddy Beaubois returns to Mavs practice as Dominique Jones goes out

    Feb 8, 2011, 5:56 PM EDT

    roddybeaubois

    Bad news for Mavericks rookie Dominique Jones — he has a stress fracture in his foot and will be out indefinitely, according to Art Garcia of NBA.com on twitter. That’s not a huge loss to the Mavs, Jones has played just once in the team’s last 11 games and that was for three minutes. But…

  17. Cavaliers would not quit, could not win; lose record 25th straight

    Feb 8, 2011, 12:03 AM EDT

    JJ Hickson

    Desperate teams are dangerous teams. And Cleveland was desperate not to set a new all timeconsecutive loss record Monday night. But the thing that trumps effort is talent — Dallas had a lot more of it and a desire not to be the first team to lose to the Cavaliers since before Christmas. The result…

  18. Peja Stojakovic to make Dallas debut Monday night

    Feb 7, 2011, 12:25 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v New Orleans Hornets

    Smart move by the Dallas Mavericks, making Peja Stojakovic active for a scrimmage in his first game. That way there is no pressure on him. Stojakovic will make his debut as a Dallas Mavericks on Monday night against the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to Earl K. Sneed of Mavs.com. Stojakovic was signed by the Mavericks Jan.…

  19. You’ll never believe it, but Kevin Garnett picked up a technical for absurd behavior

    Feb 5, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Dallas Mavericks

    I like that we get to spend our weekends like this, don’t you? Each weekend you can get up, have your coffee, read the paper that you don’t get because you get the internet so why would you get a paper? And we go over what jackass thing Kevin Garnett did the night before. It’s…

  20. The Mavericks are still zoning up, and it’s still working

    Feb 4, 2011, 7:30 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks, Tyson Chandler, Derrick Rose

    NBA teams are — by rule — prevented from running true zone defenses. The defensive three second violation was put in place specifically to prevent zones from clogging up the paint and slowing down the game, and as a result, even though most teams utilize some sort of zone coverage in pick-and-roll situations and the…

  21. Cuban reiterates (sort of) Mavs would be willing to trade for ‘Melo without extension

    Feb 3, 2011, 12:48 PM EDT

    Image (1) mcuban_cheers-thumb-250x375-14764.jpg for post 2807

    You kind of have to read between the lines of the Mavericks owner Mark Cuban told the Sporting News. Well, not very hard. It’s actually obvious what he is really saying, he just doesn’t want to write David Stern another large check. Cuban can’t say Carmelo Anthony by name — that would be tampering —…

  22. Old man game is winning in the NBA

    Feb 2, 2011, 6:54 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns

    In the NBA — like in society at large — we have this fascination with youth. Blake Griffin is a YouTube sensation. We all fall in love with the up-and-coming Oklahoma City Thunder. Fans obsess over draft picks. But what about the other end of the spectrum — who are the oldest teams in the…

  23. Nowitzki says he’s not going to play in Germany. Unless…

    Feb 2, 2011, 3:43 PM EDT

    Image (1) NBA_nowitzki2_250.jpg for post 6235

    We told you it was a real long shot in the first place, but now Dirk Nowitzki has helped us out by throwing a little cold water on the idea of him playing in Germany. But like FIBA he left himself some wiggle room. Here is what Nowitzki told the Dallas Morning News: “If it’s…

  24. Tyson Chandler’s Punch Out (the video game)

    Feb 1, 2011, 1:53 PM EDT

    mike-tyson-punch-out

    This video — the latest from the brilliant Mavericks marketing team — isn’t going to make a lot of sense unless you wasted a significant portion of your youth playing Mike Tyson’s Punch Out. (You still can!) Body blow. Body blow. Tyson Chandler is playing along — and it says something about where he now…

  25. In event of a lockout, Nowitzki says he wants to play in Germany. Except, he can’t.

    Jan 31, 2011, 2:33 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    UPDATE 2:33 pm: Interesting follow up on this from Tom Ziller at SB Nation: FIBA is trying to leave itself some wiggle room. FIBA is saying that so long as a player is under a valid contract he cannot go play overseas without a Letter of Clearance. However, if the entire 2011-12 season were canceled,…
