Dallas Mavericks

  1. Jason Kidd stops making sense

    Nov 19, 2010, 12:56 PM EDT

    From the fertile and somewhat demented minds of the Dallas Mavericks marketing department, we bring you: Jason Kidd in the Talking Heads “Once in a Lifetime” video takeoff. Complete with the classic David Byrne arm chop (see the original for reference). Not everybody can do that…. okay, everybody could do that, but we never expected…

  2. Dallas’ blueprint for corralling Rajon Rondo

    Nov 17, 2010, 10:34 AM EDT

    Rondo_Mavs

    Rajon Rondo is playing so well — assisting on half of his team’s baskets when he is on the floor, pitching in 10.8 points per game, playing great defense — that his name is mentioned in early MVP talks. It’s far too premature to talk about that, but Rondo has been amazing at adapting to…

  3. Rodrigue Beaubois inching toward return

    Nov 16, 2010, 6:50 PM EDT

    roddybeaubois

    The Mavs are faring well without Rodrigue Beaubois, but Dallas’ long-term success is certainly tied to the development of their young, dynamic scoring guard. At one point, Beaubois was aiming for a return by late in the preseason. Then he circled opening night on his calendar. Then the Mavs stopped giving possible timetables altogether, but…

  4. Mark Cuban and Miami Heat schadenfreude

    Nov 16, 2010, 1:02 PM EDT

    Image (1) cuban-thumb-250x166-11958.jpg for post 2059

    Mark Cuban may not know what the word schadenfreude means, but he knows the feeling. This what he said to ESPN Radio Dallas (via Sports Radio Interviews). “Hallelujah, boys, is that great or what? … How cool is that? Now, they could still turn it around and win out for all that matters, but you’re…

  5. Dirk Nowitzki won’t miss a beat after ankle sprain

    Nov 11, 2010, 7:00 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki, Jason Terry, Dallas Mavericks

    When Dirk Nowitzki went down at the tail end of the second quarter in last night’s game against the Grizzlies, things didn’t look good. Nowitzki cringed. He pulled his jersey over his face. He rolled. He grabbed his ankle. Yet once the initial fear had passed, he walked with Mavericks trainer Casey Smith to the…

  6. Dallas sags off Rajon Rondo for the win

    Nov 9, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics

    O.J. Mayo said recently that Rajon Rondo is the player he’d most want to play with because of how he sets teammates up. During the Nuggets broadcast last night, Kenyon Martin came on for a while and during that time said that Rondo is a better point guard than Derrick Rose. But Dallas didn’t fear…

  7. Game of the Night: Dallas’ defense isn’t all that, but it’s good enough

    Nov 4, 2010, 2:24 AM EDT

    CAnthony_miss

    Dallas came into Wednesday night with the second best defense in the NBA. It’s true. We didn’t believe it either but they are giving up just 90 points per 100 possessions. Which is damn good. (The Heat are tops, by the way). Of course the reality was they had earned that against the Bobcats, Clippers…

  8. Former stiff NBA centers find politics no easier than basketball

    Nov 3, 2010, 11:26 PM EDT

    Chris_dudley

    UPDATE 11:26 pm: It was close, but the red tide was not enough to help out Chris Dudley in a blue state. He conceded the race tonight. 1:04 pm: Two former NBA centers were on the ballot last night, trying to win elected office. One lost, one had gone into overtime and is still waiting…

  9. Rashad McCants’ future with the Legends still uncertain

    Nov 3, 2010, 3:38 PM EDT

    Rashad McCants

    Nothing is ever easy with Rashad McCants. After spending last season outside the NBA looking in, McCants signed a non-guaranteed contract with Dallas late in the preseason, and was cut almost immediately after. From a media perspective, the Mavericks’ intentions seemed rather obvious. However, McCants reportedly was told he would have a chance to make…

  10. Reno’s selection of Nick Fazekas to kick off tonight’s D-League draft

    Nov 1, 2010, 3:34 PM EDT

    Nick Fazekas

    Tonight’s D-League draft features a deeper talent pool than ever, and according to Scott Schroeder of NBA FanHouse, former Mavericks second round pick Nick Fazekas will be the first player selected overall. The Reno Bighorns, coached by former NBAer Eric Musselman, own the No. 1 pick, and will add Fazekas to an already talented group…

  11. Jason Kidd goes Jerry West, drains 75 footer

    [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/-G-9n0Fa5hU?version=3" height="205" width="320" /]

    Easily the best shot of the weekend goes to Jason Kidd, doing it to the Clippers. Because they need more bad luck. Dallas took the lead into the half on this shot, then went on to win.

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

    Oct 30, 2010, 9:55 AM EDT

    roddybeaubois

    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.…

  13. Mavericks bring in Rashad McCants for a look

    Oct 19, 2010, 8:23 PM EDT

    mccants_sitting

    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.…

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

    Oct 15, 2010, 1:54 PM EDT

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

    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…

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

  17. 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…

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

    Oct 8, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    rcarlisle_mavericks

    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…

  19. 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…

  20. 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…

  21. 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…

  22. 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.…

  23. 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,”…

  24. 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…

  25. 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…
