Dallas Mavericks

  1. Winderman: NBA to release schedule, but put it in pencil

    Jul 18, 2011, 11:10 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    When the NBA schedule is announced Tuesday, it either will be embraced or taken as yet another lockout tease, sort of like the list of available free agents. It will be a tangible, yet tormenting, moment, particularly when it comes to the interconference portion of the schedule. For those who forget, when the NBA endured…

  2. Report: Mavericks vs. Heat rematch set for Christmas Day, you know, if there’s a season

    Jul 17, 2011, 1:30 PM EDT

    Jason Kidd (R) of the Dallas Mavericks g

    It’s really quaint, actually. The NBA is going to go ahead and release the schedule for the 2011-2012 season this week, acting like it intends to have a season while its owners openly push for missing the whole year just to bury the players completely. It’s kind of cruel in retrospect, though, to tease the…

  3. Jason Kidd says he’s got three more years in him

    Jul 17, 2011, 11:30 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    Jason Kidd is the ageless wonder. Just ask the Mavericks. Pretty much all the Mavericks made a dozen or so “Jason Kidd is old” jokes during the Finals. It was their go-to move for discussing the 38-year-old championship point guard. But instead of joking about it, we really should be impressed with the fact that…

  4. Rick Carlisle could face league fine after radio slip

    Jul 15, 2011, 5:40 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Dallas Mavericks

    Team and league employees have embraced a veil of feigned ignorance during the lockout, as if a refusal to speak the names or sport the images of the players changes any bit of the unfortunate circumstances surrounding the current lockout. The league itself has imposed some hefty fines for any who violate the terms of…

  5. Mavericks become first team to ride cold streak to title

    Jul 15, 2011, 2:59 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisl

    Among the many things that needed to right for the Dallas Mavericks to win their first ever NBA title, they needed to stay healthy. And while that is true of every team, with an older team the odds of problems go up. So, the Mavericks players got cold. During their playoff run, a number of…

  6. Report: League cleared Cuban, Mavs ESPY appearance

    Jul 14, 2011, 1:40 PM EDT

    The 2011 ESPY Awards - Show

    The NBA league office apparently has nothing better to do during the lockout than monitoring team officials to make sure they don’t even have causal contact with players. Say just one wrong word and you can get threatened with a $1 million fine. So what was the deal with Mavs owner Mark Cuban standing with…

  7. Roddy Beaubois not going to Europe, some players are

    Jul 13, 2011, 2:46 PM EDT

    roddybeaubois

    It’s time to play another round of everyone’s favorite game: “Who is going to Europe?” France’s own Roddy Beaubois — the player the Mavericks had high hopes for but who missed most of the season after a foot injury and even when he returned was not right — is one of the players who is…

  8. Dwyane Wade still feeling sting of finals loss

    Jul 13, 2011, 1:42 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    Dwyane Wade loves basketball. He just can’t watch it right now. He still feels the sting of the Miami heat’s loss in the NBA finals a month ago, he told Ira Winderman of the Sun-Sentinel. “I haven’t watched ESPN in a long time,” Wade said Wednesday morning, amid his youth basketball camp at Nova Southeastern…

  9. Nowitzki walking away from endorsement dollars

    Jul 8, 2011, 3:53 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    The game’s biggest names — Kobe Bryant, LeBron James and the like — make more in endorsements and deals off the court than on it. Dirk Nowitzki could be one of those guys. Right now companies are willing to back Brinks trucks up to his house if he just signs on the dotted line. But…

  10. Tyson Chandler still keeping his options open

    Jul 7, 2011, 7:52 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks Victory Parade

    You hear how a lot of teams would like a shot blocking, rebound machine like Tyson Chandler in the paint for them. Well, why get a player “like” Chandler when you can get Chandler himself — he will be a free agent. Well, once we get to free agency after the annoying lockout. The Mavericks…

  11. It’s summer, but Jason Terry still tweaking LeBron

    Jul 7, 2011, 3:55 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    Jason Terry just can’t help himself. All through the finals he didn’t back down and trash talked LeBron. The Mavs won, but Terry isn’t done. Remember how after the finals ended LeBron said that all those Heat haters, “at the end of the day they have to wake up tomorrow and have the same life…

  12. Dirk Nowitzki not comfortable in worldwide spotlight

    Jul 6, 2011, 12:07 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki Wurzburg Germany

    This is Dirk Nowtizki’s moment in the sun. He had none other than the living legend that is Muhammed Ali send him signed boxing gloves that say, “you are the greatest.” He has had parades where he was the star in Dallas and his hometown of Wurzburg, Germany. After years of being overlooked as one…

  13. Dallas’ Mahinmi says Kobe is NBA’s most arrogant player

    Jul 6, 2011, 10:37 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v New Orleans Hornets - Game Three

    The Lakers are down are down, and people are lining up to kick them. After three straight trips to the finals and two titles, the Los Angeles was unceremoniously swept out of the playoffs in the second round by Dallas. Then the Lakers lost their coach, who was a bigger star than most of the…

  14. There are NBA owners who need next season to happen

    Jul 5, 2011, 12:48 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat

    The hardliners always get the headlines (have you watched much political news coverage?). It’s true of the NBA lockout as well — there are hardline owners that in the last decade leveraged themselves to pay hundreds of millions for a mid-to-small market NBA team and they need the business model to change. They are willing…

  15. Fernandez to play out NBA deal before returning to Spain

    Jul 5, 2011, 10:16 AM EDT

    0920-rudy-fernandez-300

    Over the weekend we told you about Real Madrid’s effort to entice Rudy Fernandez to come play in Spain. Which was a pretty smart move by the team, to try and lure him over during the lockout and be able to keep him in his native Spain, a place he said he wanted to return…

  16. Report: Real Madrid has a Rudy Fernandez plan

    Jul 3, 2011, 1:00 PM EDT

    Rudy Fernandez goggles

    HoopsHype brings us the following from Mundo Deportivo (translation via Google Translate, and is rough): Real Madrid has offered for Rudy to become the highest paid player in the history of the ACB. His proposal is for six seasons and yearly amounts would be close to 3 million euros. The club accepts that Rudy would…

  17. Sacramento, Toronto will futilely attempt to lure Tyson Chandler in free agency

    Jun 30, 2011, 6:35 PM EDT

    Tyson Chandler of the Dallas Mavericks c

    With the NBA a bit short on Dwight Howards these days, the prototype for an effective center has shifted to a slightly more attainable model: Tyson Chandler. The Mavericks’ center anchored an impressive half-court defense that could switch from man-to-man to zone and back effortlessly and fluidly, and has for the moment Chandler has become…

  18. J.J. Barea says playing in Spain could be an option

    Jun 30, 2011, 10:14 AM EDT

    J.J. Barea

    A lot of big name NBA players — Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Dirk Nowitzki, and the list goes on — have talked about playing in Europe if there is an extended NBA lockout. Thing is, it’s not that simple because if a player has an existing NBA contract he has to get a waiver from…

  19. Mark Cuban pitches in to help find Dallas rapist

    Jun 29, 2011, 3:42 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Jun 29, 2011, 8:53 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Jun 28, 2011, 4:25 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Jun 28, 2011, 2:39 PM EDT

    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…

  23. Nowitzki’s hometown in Germany throwing him parade

    Jun 28, 2011, 10:12 AM EDT

    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…

  24. Rodrigue Beaubois to undergo foot surgery. Again.

    Jun 27, 2011, 11:35 AM EDT

    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…

  25. Video: Mark Cuban wants to sign Optimus Prime

    Jun 27, 2011, 9:44 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

    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…
