  1. Monday morning one liners: Beasley may not see qualifying offer

    Michael Beasley

    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.

  2. Winderman: 2012 Mavericks are what Heat should have been in 2007

    Mavericks forward Marion, guard Kidd, guard Terry and forward Nowitzki stand with the Larry O'Brien Championship trophy before their NBA basketball game in Dallas, Texas

    Heat-Mavericks wasn’t what it was cracked up to be on Christmas Day, and it won’t be on Thursday night either. At least when cast as an NBA Finals rematch. Oh, the Heat still start the same lineup they started in Game 6 in the 2011 NBA Finals, the night the Mavericks won the NBA championship…

  3. Wednesday And-1 links: Kobe’s black facemask disappears

    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). Kobe Bryant in a black facemask was an idea that died on his 1-6 shooting start Tuesday night. Not that he got a lot better…

  4. Why the bottleneck on NBA trades? Calendar and Howard.

    Feb 13, 2012, 12:04 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    We’re a couple months into the NBA season, and there have been very few trades. Before the season we had some biggies — Chris Paul to the Lakers, er, Clippers — but once the season started, that has dried up. And you can expect things to stay pretty much dry past the All-Star game at…

  5. Thursday And-1 links: Kobe talks about passing Shaq

    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). Kobe Bryant on passing Shaq on the all-time scoring list (he’s just 69 points back): “It was inevitable.” Sorry, but that feud was more than…

  6. 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…

  7. Tuesday And-1 links: Portland’s sell out streak in jeopardy

    Welcome to our 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). Portland’s 166 game sellout streak is in danger of coming to an end. Which speaks more to the condensed schedule and the economy than it does…

  8. The Mavericks have a plan to get Lamar Odom up to speed and out of the Triangle

    Jan 1, 2012, 5:19 PM EDT

    Lamar-Odom-traded

    Lamar Odom has been terrible as a Dallas Maverick. 4-27 from the field bad. Halved production per 36 minutes bad. Outright disaster bad. But it’s early, and he’s adapting to a new system and new teammates after a lot of years under Phil Jackson and the triangle in L.A. More than that, though, he’s been…

  9. Report: Mavericks to add Yi Jianlian

    The Mavericks continue to search out new ways to improve their team after getting their first win Friday over Toronto. ESPN.com reports that the Mavs will be adding Chinese forward Yi Jianlian.

  11. Super-Conductors, Super-Teams, and You: An analysis of where the mega-squads stand and are constructed

    Dec 24, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT

    Clippers' Paul sails to the basket as Lakers' players watch during their NBA preseason game in Los Angeles

    The Knicks don’t make sense. ***************************** Every team’s fans are defensive of their squad. I like to single out specific fanbases for sport, but in reality, it doesn’t matter the locale or composition. Teams fans will react similarly in most cases provided the writing is not on the wall in gigantic stenciled block letters that…

  12. Did Jay-Z approve this? Nets to sign DeShawn Stevenson.

    Dec 22, 2011, 9:44 AM EDT

    DeShawn Stevenson

    DeShawn Stevenson was once dissed in a Jay-Z song because of the players running feud with LeBron James (something that flared up again during the NBA finals last year when Stevenson was with the Mavericks). Soon, Stevenson will play for Jay-Z and his Nets. Stevenson has reached a contract deal with the New Jersey Nets,…

  14. Now what for the Boston Celtics? It’s not a pretty picture.

    Dec 17, 2011, 3:30 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen

    What really matters in all of this is that Jeff Green will be fine and next season will return to the NBA. That is what is important. But Green being out for the entire NBA season following heart surgery leaves the Boston Celtics in a bind. Green was key to their chances this season —…

  16. Report: Vince Carter headed to Dallas Mavericks

    Dec 9, 2011, 9:34 PM EDT

    vince-carter-suns

    As expected, early on Friday the Phoenix Suns made it official and bought out Vince Carter’s contract. He was owed $18 million and he’s just not that guy anymore. So they bought him out for $4 million and Carter became a free agent. The only question was where would he land. How about Dallas? That…

    Atlanta Hawks v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    Today is going to be the Black Friday Sales of the NBA — there will be deals happening fast here, there and everywhere. Just like at Wal*Mart, you might have GMs pepper spraying others to make sure they get the player they want. It’s going to be hard to keep up with all the information,…

  18. DeShawn Stevenson is frustrated, rips Billy Hunter

    Nov 22, 2011, 5:09 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    Dallas Mavericks players maybe more frustrated with the lockout than anyone. This season was to be their coronation — Dirk Nowitzki and Jason Kidd and a team full of guys who worked hard, won an NBA title and… No banner to the rafter. No rings. Just lost momentum. A couple of them spoke with Marc…

  19. Jason Terry wants to make sure Mavs bring Stevenson back

    Sep 22, 2011, 12:22 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    The conventional wisdom has been that when looking at which of the Dallas Mavericks six free agents the team bring back for next season, Tyson Chandler is on the top of the list (as he should be). DeShawn Stevenson was near the bottom. But that’s not the way Jason Terry sees it. Terry, Dallas’ spark…

  20. Stevenson talks about being arrested for public intoxication

    Jun 15, 2011, 8:37 PM EDT

    DeShawn Stevenson

    After being arrested for public intoxication on Tuesday night, Dallas Mavericks shooting guard and 2011 NBA Champion DeShawn Stevenson opened up about his arrest on Wednesday: “A couple cops came up to me, asked me was I drunk,” Stevenson said. “I said no but I had a couple drinks. I guess he talked to somebody…

  21. Mavericks’ Stevenson arrested for public intoxication

    Jun 15, 2011, 12:45 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    The post-championship celebration of the Dallas Mavericks has led to one of the team’s players being arrested for public intoxication. DeShawn Stevenson was arrested in Irving, Texas (not far outside Dallas), according to CBS 11 News in Dallas (via Sports By Brooks). He was taken into custody outside a residential complex in the city. According…

  22. No NBA fines, suspensions from Game 6 announced

    Jun 14, 2011, 3:59 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Interesting note from Henry Abbott at TrueHoop — the NBA has yet to announce if there will be suspensions at the start of next season for the mini-altercation between Udonis Haslem and DeShawn Stevenson during Game 6. On one level I hope there are not any suspensions. It was a minor thing, some pushing and…

  23. League to review tape of Heat, Mavs altercation

    Jun 13, 2011, 9:42 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    The good news is nobody is getting suspended from Game 7. But the league is going to review the tape from an altercation that started between DeShawn Stevenson and Udonis Haslem in the second quarter. If someone did leave the bench to enter the fray they could face a fine and be suspended at the…

  24. Rick Carlisle confronted DeShawn Stevenson about Facebooking. Too bad DeShawn doesn’t have Facebook.

    Jun 12, 2011, 10:03 AM EDT

    DeShawn Neck Tattoo

    Rick Carlisle heard some disturbing rumors about DeShawn Stevenson running his mouth on Facebook, calling out Lebron James. Makes sense, Stevenson has a long-standing history with James and has said his fair share of comments during these Finals, including saying James “checked out” of Game 4. So the coach confronted Stevenson. One problem. Stevenson isn’t…

  25. Dwyane Wade thanks Dallas for trash talking LeBron

    Jun 9, 2011, 2:20 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade

    Jason Terry said LeBron James couldn’t guard him tightly for seven games. DeShawn Stevenson said LeBron “checked out” of Game 4. The Miami Heat heard all that. LeBron heard all that. Dwyane Wade told Dallas thank you for adding fuel to the fire under the best player walking the planet, as reported by Matt Moore…
