Samuel Dalembert

  1. Mavericks remake themselves (again) around Dirk Nowitzki, and this time it might work

    Vince Carter, Monta Ellis, Samuel Dalembert and Jose Calderon have Nowitzki’s Mavericks in position for first series win since 2011 championship

  2. Mavericks general manager Donnie Nelson: Dallas will keep Samuel Dalembert

  3. Pelicans’ Anthony Davis leaves game with sprained shoulder (VIDEO)

    Feb 26, 2014, 11:15 PM EST

    New Orleans at Dallas

    It doesn’t look that severe or harsh as it happens, but New Orleans’ face-of-the-franchise young big man Anthony Davis sprained his left shoulder with 4:13 left in the first half of the Pelicans loss Wednesday night to Dallas. He did not return for the second half.  The team described it as a sprain. He was…

  4. The Extra Pass: Blake Griffin’s alternate reality; plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Los Angeles Clippers v Miami Heat

    Tell me if this sounds at all familiar. 24 years old, about 6-foot-8, 6-foot-9. Roughly 250 pounds. Stronger and faster than just about everyone. Phenomenal basketball IQ. Highly skilled, but often criticized for what he can’t do instead of appreciated for what he does. That’s Blake Griffin. And at one point, that was LeBron James,…

  5. The Extra Pass: Central heat, plus Monday’s recaps

    Mike Brown

    No NBA head coach has been fired yet this season. Of course, “yet” is the key word there. Given the performances and the high expectations of a few teams in the Eastern Conference’s Central Division, that could be changing soon. Here’s a look at the tenuous positions of three coaches from that division, in order…

  6. Andre Drummond benched twice in loss to Dallas Mavericks, doesn’t want to talk about it

    Jan 27, 2014, 4:49 PM EST

    Andre Drummond

    How much can an NBA player really screw up in the first 11 seconds of a half? In Andre Drummond’s case, enough to cause Detroit Pistons coach Maurice Cheeks to bench him. On the Pistons first play of the second half in a loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday, Drummond set a ball screen…

  7. Clippers end wild game on 11-0 run to come back, beat Mavericks

    Jan 16, 2014, 2:45 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Clippers

    LOS ANGELES — If the ball hadn’t been orange with David Stern’s signature on it rather than red, white and blue I would have sworn this was an old ABA game. It was fast paced with all kinds of offense, questionable defense, a ton of threes, some chippy play, and huge runs — the Los…

  8. Mavericks’ “Anchorman” video is pretty funny

    Jan 6, 2014, 4:07 PM EST

    Ron Burgundy Participates In KXMB TV Bismarck Newscast

    This is almost funnier than “Anchorman 2.” The latest from the Mavericks’ marketing department has Dirk Nowitzki, Shawn Marion, Samuel Dalembert and even Jose Calderon doing a little take on Anchorman. Complete with mustaches and bad blazers. As noted by Kelly Dwyer at Ball Don’t Lie, this video of the Dallas “starting five” features six…

  9. Samuel Dalembert suspended by Dallas Mavericks for oversleeping, arriving late to workout

    Jan 6, 2014, 9:30 AM EST

    Samuel Dalembert, Mike Dunleavy

    Samuel Dalembert overslept, keeping him from a Dallas Mavericks practice. Samuel Dalembert overslept, keeping him from a Dallas Mavericks practice. This is not a recording. The center slept too long and was late to a Mavericks workout, which caused Dallas to suspend him for its 92-80 loss to the New York Knicks on Sunday, according…

  10. PBT’s NBA Power Rankings: Stability at the top, trades could shake up bottom

    Dec 16, 2013, 1:47 PM EST

    Houston Rockets v Portland Trail Blazers

    There is no movement at the top of the standings as the top five teams went 15-1 last week (and that one loss was to another top 5 team). However, get past that five and you get into teams like the Rockets, Suns and others where trades could really change rankings as we move toward…

  11. Samuel Dalembert is fading from Mavericks’ rotation

    Dec 16, 2013, 11:10 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Golden State Warriors

    Saturday night against the Milwaukee Bucks, Samuel Dalembert picked up a DNP-Coaches Decision. The guy the Mavericks signed this off-season to be a rim protecting big man has already been bumped from the starting lineup back on Dec. 4 (after starting the team’s first 17 games) but now he is fading out of the rotation…

  12. Samuel Dalembert benched for oversleeping and missing practice

    Nov 26, 2013, 10:15 AM EST

    Samuel Dalembert, Steve Nash, Chris Kaman

    Samuel Dalembert has a knack for making good plays, even though he can be unreliable on and off the court. That’s why the Mavericks could sign him to a two-year deal that pays fewer than $4 million per season and isn’t even fully guaranteed for the second year, a huge bargain for a starting center.…

  13. Monday night NBA Grades: Ty Lawson, LeBron James get top marks

    Nov 26, 2013, 2:32 AM EST

    Ty Lawson

    We know you might have missed some NBA action Monday night as you chased a flock of feral turkeys around New York City, so we bring you grades from the night to help you get caught up. Ty Lawson, Denver Nuggets. Lawson spent the first half of this game deferring (J.J. Hickson had 12 points…

  14. Dirk Nowitzki asks: Do you really think I’m done?

    Oct 25, 2013, 2:07 PM EST

    Dirk Nowitzki

    Mark Cuban tweeted out this new Mavericks ad on Friday… and it’s pretty good. So we’re passing it along. And no, I don’t think he’s done. I expect a bounce back season for Nowitzki, who showed he still was an elite scorer in this league last season when he finally got healthy. If Monta Ellis…

  15. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: The Dallas Mavericks

    Oct 23, 2013, 8:46 AM EST

    Dirk Nowitzki

    Last season: For the first time in his career, Dirk Nowitzki missed a chunk of the season due to major knee surgery. Dallas started 12-15 without their star German then promptly dropped 8-of-9 after his return, putting them in a deep hole. The result was the players grew “.500 beards” they let grow like they…

  16. Mavericks’ Brandan Wright fractures shoulder, out indefinitely

    Oct 11, 2013, 12:38 PM EST

    Brandan Wright

    Ouch. Brandan Wright was going to get some minutes in Dallas — Samuel Dalembert is penciled in as the starting center but he is out of shape and not a guy you give 30 minutes a night to anyway. After that you have Bernard James or you go small (DeJuan Blair). But Wright is out…

  17. Rick Carlisle slams Dalembert for lack of conditioning

    Oct 8, 2013, 12:31 PM EST

    Samuel Dalembert

    If Dallas is going to creep up into one of those final couple playoff spots in the West, they are going to need Samuel Dalembert. Not his offense — he doesn’t have much and the team has more than enough guys who want the rock in their hands anyway (can’t wait for the Dirk Nowitzki,…

  18. Mark Cuban thinks Monta Ellis will pass more, change game to win

    Oct 7, 2013, 1:45 PM EST

    Monta Ellis

    Ah, preseason. It’s a time of unbridled optimism for fans, front office people, coaches and even owners. In Dallas they have put together an interesting but kind of ragtag roster — Dirk Nowitzki is the star, Jose Calderon the point, Monta Ellis to score points then guys like Shawn Marion, Vince Carter and Samuel Dalembert…

  19. Report: Longtime NBA employee calls 2012-13 Bucks’ locker room worst he’d ever seen

    Oct 4, 2013, 2:04 PM EST

    Brandon Jennings

    The Bucks have had one of the NBA’s busiest offseasons. They traded Luc Richard Mbah a Moute and Ish Smith, waived Drew Gooden and Gustavo Ayon, let Monta Ellis, Samuel Dalembert and Mike Dunleavy Jr. walk in free agency and signed-and-traded Brandon Jennings and J.J. Redick. That’s most of the roster turned over, yet it’s…

    Sep 27, 2013, 9:19 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks - Game Three

    Last season: The Bucks went 38-44, reaching the playoffs despite a mid-season firing of Scott Skiles. Their high-scoring and high-shooting backcourt of Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis defined the team, but it was really as a team without a strong identity. Before the playoffs began, Jennings predicted the Bucks would beat the Heat in six…

  21. Dirk Nowitzki Playing 5-on-5 Before Training Camp for First Time in Years

    Sep 21, 2013, 12:30 PM EST

    Dirk Nowitzki

    15 seasons. Over 45,000 minutes of regular season and playoff minutes. International play. Training camps. Practices. That’s a lot of miles on the old odometer, but that’s not stopping Dirk Nowitzki from getting acclimated to his new teammates. After all, there’s only so much time Nowitzki has left in his career, and after the Mavericks…

  22. PBT Roundtable: Who gets the last couple playoff spots in the West?

    Sep 19, 2013, 11:59 AM EST

    Kevin Love, Wayne Ellington, Ricky Rubio

    Welcome to PBT’s regular roundtable on issues around the NBA, where our writers weigh in on the topic of the day. Today: The conventional wisdom is in the West the Thunder, Spurs, Clippers, Warriors, Grizzlies and Rockets are playoff locks (barring catastrophe). If true, who gets those final two slots? Kurt Helin: I think Minnesota,…

  23. Mark Cuban explains he won’t trade Dirk Nowitzki

    Sep 6, 2013, 3:15 PM EST

    Dirk Nowitzki

    The Dallas Mavericks have won 1,427 games, including the playoffs, in franchise history. Dirk Nowitzki has played in most of them. Dallas owner Mark Cuban on the Artie Lange show, as transcribed by The Dallas Morning News: On why he won’t trade Dirk Mark Cuban: Dirk defines our culture. When your best player, no matter…

  24. Mark Cuban, on whether this is a rebuilding year for the Mavericks: ‘Don’t even go there.’

    Aug 24, 2013, 9:30 PM EST

    Mark Cuban

    The Mavericks were one of the teams that made a pitch to Dwight Howard in free agency, and believed that with Dirk Nowitzki in the fold and with a roster’s worth of cap space available in advance of the 2014-15 season, that they’d be able to build a championship contender around Howard in just two…

  25. DeJuan Blair, Mavericks enforcer? It’s what Carlisle wants

    Aug 21, 2013, 1:01 PM EST

    DeJuan Blair

    Rick Carlisle wants the Dallas Mavericks to be tougher this season. The man for the job is… DeJuan Blair? Coach Rick Carlisle says so, speaking at Blair’s introductory press conference, as reported by ESPNDallas.com. “DeJuan was a really important acquisition for us because Elton Brand didn’t return,” Mavs coach Rick Carlisle said. “We need that…
