Dallas Mavericks

  1. Purdue’s new athletic department intern looks familiar

    Nov 8, 2011, 1:19 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Brian Cardinal was a popular guy during the Mavericks’ run to an NBA title. First, he looks like your dad so you had to root for him when he came in the game. His twitter account was smart and funny, two things rarely paired together around the NBA. And he was winning — everyone likes…

  2. Tyson Chandler says new labor deal could keep him from Mavs

    The Dallas Mavericks’ title defense could take a real hit from the new NBA collective bargaining agreement. Dallas is already over the salary cap wit $60 million in salary committed for next season, and they have multiple key free agents they want to re-sign — Tyson Chandler, Caron Butler, DeShawn Stevenson, and J.J. Barea. The…

  3. Rick Carlisle had Mavericks pack for only Game 6 of finals

    Nov 4, 2011, 8:59 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Rick Carlisle pulled a trick out of the Miami Heat’s Pat Riley’s playbook to win the NBA finals. Back in 2006, the Miami Heat were up 3-2 and heading back for a Game 6 in Dallas. Then Heat coach Riley told his players to only pack enough clothes for one game’s stay — they were…

  4. Judge tosses minority owner’s lawsuit against Mark Cuban

    Nov 3, 2011, 4:43 PM EDT

    NBA Finals Mavericks Heat Basketball

    It made for a nice bit of sensationalism — a minority owner of the Dallas Mavericks suing Mark Cuban and calling the franchise “insolvent.” Even more amusing was Cuban’s “we’re the champs” legal defense. Which apparently is a good strategy because on Thursday a judge tossed Ross Perot Jr.’s lawsuit out, according to the Dallas…

  5. Welcome to NBA opening day… oh, never mind

    Nov 1, 2011, 10:06 AM EDT

    Rose_Garden_Arena_Interior

    Tuesday was the day that Mark Cuban was to raise a banner he has worked hard to bring to Dallas. It was the day Dirk Nowitzki and Jason Kidd were to finally get NBA championship rings. It was the day we got to see Derrick Rose in action. The day we gut to watch the…

  6. Should the NBA ban zone defenses? No.

    Oct 28, 2011, 2:13 PM EDT

    Wade, Zone defense, mavericks

    It was 10 years ago that the NBA started allowing a modified zone defense to be played in the NBA. It’s not a pure zone — you can’t park Dwight Howard in the paint, there’s a defensive three seconds — but more and more teams are using some form of match zones. The Mavericks may…

  7. NBA says union, not Cuban, wanted to eliminate salary cap

    Oct 25, 2011, 7:05 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Right now, the NBA and players and owners can’t even agree on who made ridiculous proposals that had no chance of ever coming to fruition. Just in case you thought there might be some progress and sanity anytime soon. Here’s the story: After the last round of negotiations between the owners and players blew up…

  8. How does the NBA stack up to the NFL, MLB, and NHL in spending efficiency?

    Oct 24, 2011, 3:28 PM EDT

    NBA Finals Mavericks Heat Basketball

    Periodically, one financially inclined publication or another takes a look at the performance of professional sports teams in relation to their payroll. What typically ensues is just basic division; the outlets divide the total salary cost by the team’s wins, and then rank the teams according to their total cost per win. It’s a fun…

  9. Tyson Chandler says owners are negotiating like “dictators”

    Oct 24, 2011, 2:50 PM EDT

    Tyson Chandler of the Dallas Mavericks c

    We keep trying to give you some insights into the players mindset during the lockout, how they will not back down because they feel the offer from the owners is unfair. As our latest example, we bring you Tyson Chandler of your NBA champion Dallas Mavericks. He was ESPN radio in Los Angeles (remember he…

  10. Dwight Howard among latest planning charity games

    Oct 24, 2011, 2:24 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    As the NBA lockout drags on, the number of charity games featuring NBA players keeps increasing. The latest big name to say he is planning a big charity game in an NBA city is Dwight Howard, who tweeted it out this weekend, reports the Orlando Sentinel. Promising festivities akin to “a Magic All-Star weekend,” Orlando…

  11. Video: Dirk Nowitzki throws out first pitch at World Series

    Oct 23, 2011, 11:30 AM EDT

    New York Mets v Texas Rangers

      After all that, he finally got to throw out the first pitch.   The Rangers lost 16-7.   Wah-wah.

  12. Update: Dirk Nowitzki will throw out first pitch for Game 3

    Oct 19, 2011, 10:01 PM EDT

    New York Mets v Texas Rangers

    UPDATE 10:01 pm: Bud Selig has seen the mistake, stepped in and has saved the day. Hey, it happens, a broken clock is right twice a day. After seeing the public backlash and realizing they looked like fools, Selig and Major League Baseball stepped in and said “what do you mean we said Dirk Nowitzki…

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

    Oct 13, 2011, 9:45 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Oct 11, 2011, 6:25 PM EDT

    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…

  15. Mark Cuban would consider “Dallas Mavericks Network”

    Oct 11, 2011, 10:09 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Oct 11, 2011, 9:23 AM EDT

    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…

  17. Caron Butler says he would consider playing for Heat

    Oct 10, 2011, 4:27 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Oct 8, 2011, 7:44 PM EDT

    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’…

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

    Oct 7, 2011, 1:40 PM EDT

    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…

  20. Del Harris to coach Mavericks D-League affiliate

    Oct 4, 2011, 11:10 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Oct 3, 2011, 1:14 PM EDT

    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.…

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

    Sep 27, 2011, 11:16 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Sep 22, 2011, 12:22 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Sep 20, 2011, 5:26 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Sep 20, 2011, 11:26 AM EDT

    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.…
