Dallas Mavericks

  1. Beaubois may be out until December, so says Nowitzki

    Dirk Nowitzki is not a doctor. He does not even play one on television. But we’re not getting a lot of reports from Dallas doctors on the recovery of Roddy Beaubois, so when Nowitzki says something, we listen. And he said something to Art Garcia of NBA.com. “Obviously, we’re all waiting on Roddy,” Nowitzki said.…

  2. Mavericks bring in Rashad McCants for a look

    Oct 19, 2010, 8:23 PM EDT

    Dallas is a looking for a guy to maybe be an insurance policy on a team built to win now. Rashad McCants maybe can help there, he is a guy who can put up points. Not terribly efficiently, and he zones out on defense, plus he’s had run ins with coaches. But he can score.…

  3. Jason Kidd would love a little more time off, thank you very much

    Jason Kidd played 36 minutes a game (80 games) at age 36 last season. He has played at least 35 minutes a game for every season since his rookie season started in 1994. So sure, a few more minutes off here and there would be welcomed, Kidd told the Dallas Morning News. “Oh yeah, I…

  4. NBA Season Preview: The Dallas Mavericks

    Oct 13, 2010, 2:11 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    Last season: 55-27, which was enough to nab the West’s second seed before losing a tight series to the Spurs in the first round of the playoffs. It was Dallas’ tenth consecutive 50-win season, but also their fourth first-round exit over that same span. Head Coach: Rick Carlisle, an excellent coach driven by detail, famous…

  5. Mavericks Coach Rick Carlisle back on the job

    Oct 11, 2010, 3:46 PM EDT

    rcarlisle_mavericks

    What are things doctors tell you about staying healthy? Reduce stress, eat right, get plenty of sleep. Three things that coaches do not get. Not in the NBA, not really in any professional or college sport by and large. Long hours, irregular eating schedules that mean too much greasy food, travel and disrupted sleeping patterns…

  6. Mavericks coach Carlisle out of hospital, back at work (but taking tomorrow off)

    Oct 8, 2010, 7:52 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Denver Nuggets, Game 1

    Rick Carlisle was in good spirits, joking as he left the hospital Friday afternoon just hours after passing out on the court during a Dallas Mavericks practice. After he left the hospital he went back to work. Yes, I’m serious. NBA coaches are serious workaholics. Carlisle spoke to ESPN radio, as reported by Mike Fisher…

  7. Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle collapses on court, now out of hospital

    Oct 8, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    UPDATE 6:00 pm: Rick Carlisle has been released from the hospital, according to the Associated Press. That is certainly a good sign. The same report says the Mavericks are not saying if Carlisle, 50, will accompany the team to California. UPDATE 3:49 pm: Art Garcia of NBA.com spoke to Carlisle and tweeted the coach said…

  8. Jason Kidd wants to play until he’s 40… no that is not next week

    Oct 7, 2010, 12:14 PM EDT

    Image (1) Kidd_floater-thumb-250x374-21447.jpg for post 4423

    Big men have played until they turned 40 in the NBA — Shaquille O’Neal wants to do it now, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Robert Parish have done it among a number of others. With guards, that’s much harder. Michael Jordan played until he was 39 and you notice that Washington Wizards Jordan didn’t end up in…

  9. Phoenix, Chicago this week's frontrunners for Erick Dampier

    Oct 6, 2010, 6:55 PM EDT

    Let’s be honest, we got annoyed with the LeBron James decision process that seemed to drag on and on, but at least there was a franchise-shaping decision coming at the end of it. The Erick Dampier decision-making process? It just drags on and on. Dampier will meet this week with Chicago and Phoenix, according to…

  10. Mark Cuban has to pay Don Johnson $51 million for Nash Bridges

    Oct 4, 2010, 7:50 PM EDT

    Some shows have nice long runs on television without me catching an episode or noticing they exist. Numb3ers was one of those. Virtually every sitcom of the last five years. There are others. Nash Bridges was in that club. You know, the show Don Johnson did after Miami Vice (Johnson helped produce as well). With…

  11. Good news for the Mavs: Rodrigue Beaubois' broken foot is getting better all the time

    Sep 30, 2010, 8:01 PM EDT

    Over the summer, the Dallas Mavericks shot for LeBron James, but fell short. They tried for Dwyane Wade, but no dice. Then came Joe Johnson, but he wasn’t interested. They altered their plan of attack and were linked to Andre Iguodala and Al Jefferson in trade discussions, but the Mavs couldn’t get a deal done.…

  12. Tim Thomas plans on playing in the NBA again… next year

    Sep 30, 2010, 10:08 AM EDT

    The Dallas Mavericks have waived Tim Thomas. He played just 18 games for the team last year and will not be with the team this season as he attends to a family situation that takes priority. But he wants to be back next season, he told Zagsblog.com. “I’m definitely planning on being back next year,”…

  13. Jason Kidd calls "B.S." on report he tried to talk 'Melo out of New Jersey

    Sep 28, 2010, 3:58 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony clearly is having second thoughts about taking his talents to New Jersey. Can’t imagine why. We just listened to Springsteen’s “Born To Run” and he made it sound like such a wonderful place. Then there was the report from Sam Amick of FanHouse that Jason Kidd warned Melo about the perils of New…

  14. Mark Cuban not done banging on the Heat, says they're a team "only locals can love"

    Sep 24, 2010, 11:24 AM EDT

    Okay Mark, we get it. Mark Cuban thinks people will hate the new Miami Heat, then will tune in to watch and root against them. And that at the end of the day that is good for the league because people are watching and involved. Cuban did a chat with the Fort Worth Star Telegram…

  15. Camp invites rolling in: Jarron Collins to Clippers, Steve Novak to Mavericks

    Sep 22, 2010, 4:49 PM EDT

    Teams are busy rounding out their rosters for training camps and a couple familiar names are popping up. Jarron Collins, half of the offensively challenged Collins twins, will be headed to Clippers, his agent told Hoopshype. Not sure there is much to this, they have Chris Kaman and DeAndre Jordan at the five already, not…

  16. Dirk Nowitzki is going to get some help this season. No, really. They mean it this time.

    Sep 22, 2010, 10:01 AM EDT

    Last season Dirk Nowitzki played 2,011 minutes, 37.5 minutes per game. Almost identical to the season before that. Both of those increases from the season before that. Every year training camp rolls around and the Dallas Mavericks talk about not pushing Dirk Nowitzki so hard during the regular season, saving him for the playoffs a…

  17. Court revives insider trading case against Mark Cuban

    Sep 21, 2010, 2:59 PM EDT

    Back in 2009, the insider trading case against Mavericks owner Mark Cuban was thrown out of court. Now it is back. A federal appeals court revived the case today, sending it back to a lower court for further discovery and then to proceed from there. That could include a trial. Here is the AP’s breakdown…

  18. More Mark Cuban coming to your television

    Sep 20, 2010, 4:18 PM EDT

    Mark Cuban is coming back to television, not just on the sidelines at Mavs games but in a role on a reality show. Fortunately this time we will not need some kind of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind memory erasers to get images of him in dancing in a sleeveless shirt out of our…

    The Dallas Mavericks promo videos are just the best.

  20. Why Dirk stayed in Dallas: The owner gets it

    Sep 17, 2010, 12:11 PM EDT

    LeBron James had questions about Cleveland, its ownership and the grand plan. He didn’t have those questions (or far fewer ones) about Miami. Dirk Nowitzki was a free agent this summer too, although nobody expected him to move. He told Mavs Moneyball it was owner Mark Cuban’s commitment to winning that made sure he did…

  21. Cuban says "hell yes" his Mavericks can beat the Lakers

    Sep 16, 2010, 2:15 PM EDT

    Things are going to be different this year for the Mavericks. No more of that “good but not quite good enough” stuff. Time to own the West, the NBA. This is the year the Mavericks beat the Lakers. That’s not me saying that, I still have a shred of sanity left. It’s Mark Cuban, owner…

  22. Mavs looking at Brian Cardinal to be new guy sitting on bench

    Sep 16, 2010, 10:02 AM EDT

    Brian Cardinal — the 10-year NBA veteran who played in just 29 games for the Minnesota Timberwolves last season — is being eyed by the Dallas Mavericks to fill the Tim Thomas slot. Bobby Simmons and Steve Novak are in the running, but Cardinal is the front runner, according to Art Garcia at NBA.com. Dallas…

  23. Tim Thomas to stay with ailing wife, will not report to Mavericks

    Sep 14, 2010, 9:23 PM EDT

    Just a week ago, Tim Thomas was talking about how he wanted to be back with Dallas, to help them win a title and to show his loyalty to them for the Mavs’ support of Thomas while he was away helping his sick wife. But the reality of those family issues continue to take priority…

  24. Rodrigue Beaubois is off crutches, hopes to be ready for the Mavs' season opener

    Sep 10, 2010, 4:35 PM EDT

    Rodrigue Beaubois’ broken foot put a huge damper on the French national team’s chances at the FIBA World Championships, but with an already limited team (Tony Parker, Mickael Pietrus, Ronny Turiaf, and Joakim Noah were all notable NBA no-gos), France would have faced a long and trying road with or without Beaubois. Now, with France…

  25. Dee Brown coming to Dallas Mavericks camp

    Sep 3, 2010, 9:41 AM EDT

    Dee Brown has flitted around the edges of the NBA —  just in or just out –since he left Illinois four years ago (he was the other guy in the backcourt with Deron Williams). This year he wants back in and tweeted that he will be headed to the Dallas Mavericks training camp this fall.…
