  2. PBT Power Rankings: Heat start season on top, Bobcats in cellar

    It’s that time of year — the PBT’s NBA Power Rankings are back. Power Rankings before a single game is played are admittedly a bit silly, but then again the NBA has playoffs to determine which team is best so really all power rankings are silly and just for the entertainment value. It would take…

    When the Dallas Mavericks suspended Delonte West this week, it had a pretty permanent feeling. There’s the part where the Mavs said it was indefinite.

    If one thing became clear as news around Delonte West being suspended indefinitely by the Mavericks, it is that it wasn’t indefinite — it was going to be permanent.

    Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki (41) reacts after hitting a three point shot during the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Utah Jazz  in Salt Lake City, Utah

    Last Season: Coming off their incredible championship season, the Mavericks let defensive anchor Tyson Chandler go to New York in order to retain future cap flexibility. While that decision certainly hurt the chances of a true title defense, the acquisition of Lamar Odom probably buried it altogether. Despite those massive offseason failings, the veteran Mavs…

    Daryl Morey

    For the past few years, the Rockets have been stuck in a rut of mediocrity — not terrible, fighting for a bottom playoff seed and either way ending up with a pick in the middle of the first round somewhere. Not a bad team, not a contender, just a team riding along in the middle.…

    When healthy last season, Delonte West played pretty well for the Dallas Mavericks — 9.6 points per game on 46 percent shooting with a PER of 15.3 Those are solid minutes, which is why he started 33 games for them.

    It’s going to be an interesting summer in Dallas. Can they lure Deron Williams back to his home town? Can they find a way to trade for Dwight Howard (not likely)? If those plans fall through, what does Mark Cuban have up his sleeve? Whatever happens Delonte West wants to be a part of it.…

    Apr 18, 2012, 4:21 PM EST

    We kind of expected  a fine was coming for the above stupidity by Delonte West.
