Dallas Mavericks

  1. Rick Carlisle to miss game after knee injury

    Dec 25, 2010, 7:00 PM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Dallas Mavericks

    The Mavs have announced that Rick Carlisle will miss Monday night’s Mavericks game in Oklahoma City after knee surgery over the Christmas holiday. Carlisle’s having a rough year, health wise. He missed a game in preseason after fainting in practice. He actually spent some time in the hospital during that episode, and now will miss…

  2. Mavericks find no interest in a trade for Brendan Haywood

    Dec 24, 2010, 10:58 AM EST

    This summer, Brendan Haywood was going to be the solid, dependable center in the middle that the Mavericks would operate around. Hence the five-year, $42 million deal they gave him. Then Tyson Chandler came in and took over the starting center spot with his play. Haywood is now the expensive backup, playing about 18 or…

  3. Boston still beasts of the East (and they’re enjoying it)

    Dec 22, 2010, 6:22 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    Why did the Orlando Magic dramatically reshuffle their roster last weekend? The Celtics. Orlando’s brain trust realized their current roster was not going to beat Boston come May. The Celtics knocked the Magic out of the playoffs last season and this season that gap widened. Orlando had to do something — and in doing so…

  4. Larry Bird congratulates Dirk Nowitzki for passing him on all-time scoring list

    When Dirk Nowitzki entered the league as a skinny German kid he became a bit of a sensation for the reasons he is a legend now — the guy can flat out shoot the rock and is 7-feet tall. But if you said he’d end up scoring more points than the Larry Bird you would…

  5. Report: Mavericks throw hat in Melo sweepstakes — but only as a rental

    Dec 21, 2010, 11:56 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Charlotte Bobcats

    Now we have some confirmation on an early post on this site that came with a little bit of speculation — it is indeed the Dallas Mavericks that is the contending team that has thrown it’s hat into the Carmelo Anthony sweepstakes. However they only want him as a “rental,” according to Ken Berger of…

  6. Report: Contending teams consider “renting” Carmelo Anthony for season

    Dec 21, 2010, 4:18 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets v New York Knicks

    Much of the focus on Carmelo Anthony’s trade prospects has centered on whether Anthony would sign a contract extension to play wherever he was sent. But what if a contending team was willing to trade for him without caring about an extension? That is apparently happening (well, that or it’s a negotiating tactic). Sources told…

  7. Game of the night: Miami looks good, but not Dallas good

    Dec 21, 2010, 2:17 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat

    The first time the Miami played Dallas back in November, the Heat players were still figuring it out. They seemed to be taking turns on offense more than working off each other, they were playing slow, it wasn’t outright confusion but they looked uncomfortable. But after winning a dozen in a row they were past…

  8. Tyson Chandler is to Dallas as Kevin Garnett is to Boston? Dirk says true.

    Dec 20, 2010, 6:20 PM EST

    tchandler_Mavs

    Last season, 26 games into the season, Dallas was 19-7 and it went on to a 55-win season. This season their offensive production is almost identical, but the Mavs look like a different, better team. One you might really be scared of come the playoffs. They are 21-5 heading into a showdown with a rejuvenated…

  9. Beaubois finally beginning to heal

    Dec 20, 2010, 5:49 PM EST

    Beaubois

    After an extremely promising rookie campaign, Rodrigue Beaubois had a rough summer. First, he struggled with his shot in Las Vegas as he tried to turn himself into more of a two-guard. That wasn’t great. Then he broke his foot, which was much worse. The hyper-athletic combo guard hasn’t played a minute this season, and…

  10. Dallas “touches base” with Denver about Melo, but reality says no way

    Dec 15, 2010, 2:53 PM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    We’re not telling you about this because it is likely to happen — you’re more likely to read a headline that says “President Obama, Rush Limbaugh now BFFs” — but rather to show just how widespread the interest in Carmelo Anthony is around the league. The Dallas Mavericks have “continued to touch base” with the…

  11. Should the Lakers be worried about the Spurs, Mavericks?

    Dec 15, 2010, 1:42 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    The NBA championship is not decided in December. The NBA season is a long slog where contending teams want to develop good habits, win games and stay healthy for the second season. We get that. But we can’t help but wonder… When you look at the West right now what do you see? Dallas just…

  12. Mark Cuban tries not to yell at players, chooses refs instead

    Dec 14, 2010, 3:42 PM EST

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

    Mark Cuban tries not to, which is more than we can say for Donald Sterling. If you are invested — emotionally and financially — as an NBA owner, you bet you would get frustrated when your team doesn’t play well. Los Angeles Clippers owner Sterling has taken that frustration out by heckling players during games,…

  13. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Dallas had to lose sometime

    Bogut_Ilyasova

    What you missed while reminiscing about how great Moses Malone was… Our game of the night was LeBron James’ team besting his good friend Chris Paul’s team…. Bucks 103, Mavericks 99: Dallas has played some very good zone defense during the 12-game win streak they had entering this game — Brandon Jennings carved it up…

  14. NBA Power Rankings: There are some long winning streaks out there

    Dec 13, 2010, 1:15 PM EST

    Dirk Nowitzki, Jason Terry, Dallas Mavericks

    Our weekly NBA Power Rankings, where if it were a seven-game series we’d take any of the next three teams below Dallas to come out on top, but when you win 12 in a row you get to keep the top spot. 1. Mavericks (19-4). They’ve won an even dozen in a row now. In…

  15. When billionaires joke around: Mark Cuban calls Mikhail Prokhorov a “p***y”

    Dec 10, 2010, 4:30 PM EST

    NBA All-Star Celebrity Game Presented By Final Fantasy XIII

    UPDATE 4:30 pm: As we kind of expected, this seems to be a joke between the two via the media. Stefan Bondy of the Daily News, who wrote the original story, got a text from Prokhorov in response to the original comment: “I think Mark has it wrong. I don’t like cats.” Other media there…

  16. Mark Cuban calls the Heat the best team in the league

    Dec 9, 2010, 10:00 PM EST

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

    The Dallas Mavericks have won 10 in a row. They have the second best record in the whole of the NBA, trailing only the Spurs — and Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said recently the Mavericks were probably the best team in the league right now. Both Dallas’ offense and defense are in the top 10…

  17. Rashad McCants headed to China

    Dec 9, 2010, 12:16 PM EST

    mccants_sitting

    Rashad McCants apparently wants to get paid. He was playing with the Texas Legends of the D-League — where the maximum salary is $25,000 a year, which he was going to donate to charity — looking to make it back to the NBA. But his agent informed the Mavericks and Legends that he was leaving…

  18. NBA Power Rankings, ones that will make Mark Cuban smile

    Image (1) Cuban-fist.png for post 4296

    Our weekly NBA Power Rankings. Dallas, Boston and Denver all on seven-games or longer winning streaks… and the Knicks could join them this week. 1. Mavericks (16-4). Winners of nine in a row, they are getting fantastic play from Tyson Chandler and Jason Kidd… which makes you wonder if they can keep it up as…

  19. Buy Shawn Marion’s house, get Super Bowl tickets.

    The housing market is still slumping. If you’re going to sell your home in this market, you’re going to have to have some kind of incentive. Like Super Bowl tickets. Buy Shawn Marion’s former home in Florida and that is just what you get, according to FanHouse. Marion is offering four club-level Super Bowl tickets…

  20. Mark Cuban on Mark Cuban

    Dec 3, 2010, 5:52 PM EST

    Image (1) Cuban_Stern-thumb-250x166-21115.jpg for post 4353

    If you owned an NBA team, wouldn’t you want to be like Mark Cuban? Injecting yourself in the personnel debates, working out in the facilities, flying with the team, taking shots on the court before games. He is a fan/owner. He’s having fun, but he is also very smart and self-aware. And that comes through…

  21. Dirk Nowitzki has all that power

    Nov 29, 2010, 1:44 PM EST

    Dirk Nowitzki

    When I think of Dirk Nowitzki, the first person that always comes to mind is Kanye West. It’s not just the physical resemblance, it’s how both of them love and are inspired by the music of David Hasselhoff. Maybe you didn’t see the connection, but the fine folks in the Dallas Mavericks marketing department did,…

  22. Report: Mavericks Brendan Haywood argued with coach, sat a game

    Nov 27, 2010, 8:00 PM EST

    Image (1) bhaywood-thumb-250x250-15436.jpg for post 3008

    Brendan Haywood has been watching his minutes get squeezed by the rejuvenated play of Tyson Chandler — then on Friday he didn’t play at all. That’s because he was suspended for a game after getting into an argument with Dallas coach Rick Carlisle, according to an ESPNDallas report. New York-based agent Andy Miller said Saturday…

  23. Beaubois likely out another three, four weeks in Dallas

    Nov 24, 2010, 3:30 PM EST

    roddybeaubois

    Maybe the Dallas Mavericks can get a Roddy Beaubois for Christmas? The second-year guard that was going to play a much larger role with the team this season — and bring the speed and playmaking the team lacked last season — is out and may be out another three to four weeks, a source told…

  24. Dampier to sign one-year deal with Heat Tuesday

    Nov 22, 2010, 11:00 PM EST

    dampier

    Watching the Miami Heat lose to the Indiana Pacers Monday night, it became clear they need something. We’ll see if Erick Dampier can be part of that something. Multiple reports have the Miami Heat offering a one-year, minimum deal to Dampier (Ken Berger of CBS was first with this). He is expected to sign it…

  25. Jason Kidd stops making sense

    Nov 19, 2010, 12:56 PM EST

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

    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…
