Delonte West

  1. Hayward says he wanted to fight West after “wet Willy”

    Apr 17, 2012, 6:19 PM EDT

    Gordon Hayward

    We can debate, if you are so inclined, if the above is a true “wet Willy” as Delonte West did not wet his finger before sticking it in the ear of Gordon Hayward. There are schoolyard guidelines for such things. However, I think that may miss the point. I think we can agree it’s a…

  2. Delonte West gives Gordon Hayward a “wet Willy.” You read that right.

    Apr 17, 2012, 9:10 AM EDT

    delonte

    This may be the most bizarre way to get a technical foul I have ever seen. After a diligent search it turns out the words “wet Willy” do not appear in the NBA rule book, but the referees decided to “T” Delonte West up anyway for sticking his finger in Gordon Hayward‘s ear during the…

  3. Dallas’ Jason Kidd out for week with right groin strain

    Apr 2, 2012, 8:01 PM EDT

    Jason Kidd

    Jason Kidd is sitting out Monday night as the Mavericks take on the Los Angeles Clippers and could be out a week or more due to a strained right groin muscle, reports ESPNDallas.com. We say a week or more because, well, look at Derrick Rose. Groins are notoriously slow to heal and easy to aggravate…

  4. Tuesday And-1 links: Delonte West, Lamar Odom go to the zoo

    Mar 27, 2012, 11:25 AM EDT

    Lamar Odom

    Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points. • Delonte West and Lamar Odom went to the zoo. That went about as…

  5. Delonte West talks about, denies “that rumor”

    Feb 29, 2012, 1:49 AM EDT

    Delonte West, Roy Hibbert, Danny Granger

    At PBT, up to now I’ve avoided doing a post about “that” Delonte West rumor. You know the one. Because I never believed it — no source I trusted ever confirmed it and those closest to the team always said it was not true. Yet it was out there and will not go away —…

  6. Delonte West was homeless, slept in Mavs locker room at start of season

    Feb 28, 2012, 3:20 PM EDT

    Delonte West, Ricky Rubio

    Remember back during the lockout Delonte West took a job at a furniture store, saying he needed the money. He wasn’t kidding. West has made more than $14 million in his career, but during the lockout he sold off his cars, jewelry, and was living in the Mavericks locker room for a while, he told…

  7. Delonte West undergoes surgery on fractured finger, no timetable for return

    Feb 17, 2012, 6:34 PM EDT

    Casey Smith, Delonte West

    From the Boston Globe’s Gary Washburn: #mavericks announce Delonte West has surgery to repair fractured right ring finger. No timetable for his return. Another bad break for him West, a tough, versatile player who was a key piece of the 66-win 08-09 Cavaliers, has had his career go through some extreme ups and downs since he…

  8. Mavs’ Delonte West to be out for “a while” with broken finger

    Feb 16, 2012, 12:15 PM EDT

    Casey Smith, Delonte West

    It was gruesome when it happened. Midway through the second quarter of the Mavericks latest win, Delonte West reached in and strip the ball and broke the ring finger on his right hand. Let’s just say you could see bone and blood was gushing. Not a pretty sight. You could tell because of Vince Carter’s…

  9. LeBron, heckler reportedly had words in Washington

    Feb 13, 2012, 8:45 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    LeBron James’ talent may have moved to South Beach, but he still fills the arenas. However, the sound he hears in those arenas is a lot different than he heard a few years ago. Then he was the wunderkind carrying the Cavaliers on his back, now he is the villain leader of the Heat. He…

  10. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Orlando with another bad outing

    Jan 31, 2012, 9:29 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard, J.J. Redick

    What you missed while realizing that Homeland Security is monitoring your tweets…. Clippers 112, Thunder 100: There was a lot more to this than just Blake Griffin dunking on Kendrick Perkins, which is why it was our game of the night. Sixers 74, Magic 69: The Magic were just terrible shooting the ball in this…

  11. Jason Kidd expected to miss week, more with calf strain

    Jan 30, 2012, 12:22 PM EDT

    Mavericks guard Kidd watches from the bench against the Spurs  during their NBA basketball game in Dallas, Texas

    Jason Kidd did not play Sunday in the Mavericks overtime win against the Spurs and it may be a week or more before he returns. Kidd suffered a calf strain and had to leave Friday’s game not to return. Then before Sunday’s game coach Rick Carlisle said he could be out for at least a…

  12. Monday And-1 links: Former Net now “Moses of Rikers.”

    Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). Former Net Jayson Williams is now the “Moses of Rikers.” Can you blame all the problems in your life on Minnesota GM David Kahn? Maybe.…

  13. Cuban believes this year’s Mavs are better than last year’s

    Jan 19, 2012, 10:46 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers

    Mark Cuban felt the heat after he let Tyson Chandler, J.J. Barea, Caron Butler, DeShawn Stevenson go. Brining in Lamar Odom has not worked out as planned and Dallas got off to a rocky 8-7 start after two heartbreaking losses in Los Angeles (veterans Derek Fisher and Chauncey Billups did them with game winners on…

  14. Wednesday And-1 links: Anderson Varejao is no Magic Johnson

    Jan 11, 2012, 11:29 AM EDT

    Anderson Varejao

    Welcome to our morning look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). Anderson Varejao is no Magic Johnson. Here is the video proof. Paul Pierce misses having Delonte West around. By the way, West apologized for his…

  15. Video: Two fans just sit down on Mavericks’ bench

    Jan 11, 2012, 10:54 AM EDT

    fans on Mavs bench grab

    We’ve all done it. Left our not so great seats, gotten a beer and then when we walk back into the arena you move down to better seats that some company couldn’t give away to a client or secretary for the night. But there are limits to how far down you should go. Like, say,…

  16. Jason Kidd out at least two more games with back pain

    Jan 8, 2012, 7:59 PM EDT

    Jason Kidd

    Finally the Dallas Mavericks seemed to have found a groove, winning three of their last four including Saturday night over what is left of the Hornets. A win they got with Delonte West starting in place of Jason Kidd. Which is something they had better get used to as he will be out another two…

  17. Delonte West can’t attend White House ceremony, goes on Twitter rant against media

    Jan 8, 2012, 10:33 AM EDT

    Delonte West pushing car

    Wow, there hasn’t really been a lot of Delonte West news this year, has there? Things have been pretty quiet. Yup, guess he’s put all that drama behi… oh. OK, maybe not. So first off, a pretty good quote from West, who it turns out thanks to his weapons charge from several years ago, you…

  18. Baseline to Baseline recaps: No LeBron, no Wade, no problem

    Jan 6, 2012, 4:17 AM EDT

    Dwyane Wade, LeBron James

    What you missed while wondering what a crocodile would do with a lawn mower… Heat 116, Hawks 109 (3OT): No LeBron James or Dwyane Wade for Miami, yet the Heat were gritty (a little lucky) and get an unexpected win. This game was entertaining and dramatic, much more so than we expected going in. But can…

  19. Baseline to baseline recaps: Kevin Durant is an assassin

    Dec 30, 2011, 8:46 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City Thunder

    What you missed while watching an octopus pick the BCS matchups…. Lakers 99, Knicks 82: We broke this down as our game of the night. Thunder 104, Mavericks 102: This was easily the best game the Mavericks have played this season. The ball movement was back, the clever veteran plays were there. Delonte West said…

  20. What is wrong with 0-2 Dallas? A lot of things.

    Dec 27, 2011, 12:45 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    The defending NBA champion Dallas Mavericks have started out 0-2. An ugly 0-2. They have been blown out by the Heat and the Nuggets on their home court, losing by a combined 33 points (and it wasn’t really that close, garbage time runs have made it look better than it was). What in the name…

  21. Miami 105 Dallas 94: Heat unleash the Nightmare on Christmas for Mavs

    Dec 25, 2011, 7:00 PM EDT

    heat_mavericks2

    A three-part preface, to begin, before we cover the Heat’s shelling/drilling/slaughter of the Mavericks. It’s the first game of the season, and the first game of the season is never indicative of how the season will go for either team, even if it seems like it in retrospect. Th Celtics beat the Heat in the…

  22. Can the Dallas Mavericks repeat as NBA champions?

    Dec 16, 2011, 5:16 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    After a trying, decade-long run that consistently placed them along the title’s periphery, the Dallas Mavericks finally claimed their first ever NBA championship last June. The fact that Dirk and the Mavs are the reigning champs still seems like a hazy dream — a vision almost too similar to a storybook to be real, and an…

  23. NBA Season Preview: Dallas Mavericks

    Dec 15, 2011, 2:53 AM EDT

    Dallas players Carter, Marion, Nowitzki, Odom, Kidd, and Terry pose for photos during media day at the team's headquarters in Dallas, Texas

    Last season: 57-25, good enough for the third seed in the West, but then all the pieces clicked at the right time. The Mavericks rode a great post season from Dirk Nowitzki plus key contributions from Jason Terry, Tyson Chandler, J.J. Barea and others — they got a depth of contributions no other team could…

  24. Delonte West inks deal to become Dallas Maverick

    Dec 13, 2011, 2:05 AM EDT

    Delonte West

    Delonte West took some odd jobs this summer for a paycheck. Now he’s back to getting a nice one with… The Dallas Mavericks, according to Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today. The Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers were the two teams considered to be chasing West, but Dallas slid in and nabbed him for a…
