Vince Carter

  1. Kevin Love is putting up historically great numbers to begin the season

    Nov 9, 2013, 5:00 PM EST

    Kevin Love

    A healthy Kevin Love was expected to make a world of difference for the Timberwolves this season, and through the first six games that’s been exactly what’s happened. Minnesota is off to a 4-2 start to the season, and Love’s dominance in multiple statistical categories is a big reason why. Love’s numbers aren’t just great…

  2. Vince Carter suspended one game for elbow to Steven Adams’ head

    Nov 8, 2013, 11:44 AM EST

    Vince Carter

    When this happened we told you Vince Carter could expect a league-mandated vacation, and that has come to pass. Dallas’ Carter has been suspended one game for throwing an intentional elbow to the head of Oklahoma City rookie Steven Adams. Carter will be out Friday night when the Mavericks take on the Timberwolves Carter was…

    Vince Carter can expect a league-mandated one-game vacation for this, or at the very least he will pull out his checkbook. The veteran Mavericks guard was ejected for the third quarter play you see above. Oklahoma City’s Steven Adams caught Carter with an inadvertant elbow getting an offensive rebound, and Carter responded with an intentional…

  4. Wednesday Night NBA Grades: Larry Sanders out of action, and Tony Parker’s big fourth quarter

    Nov 7, 2013, 1:06 AM EST

    Miami Heat v San Antonio Spurs - Game Four

    Our grades from Wednesday night around the NBA, or what you missed while securing funds in advance of twitter’s IPO … Larry Sanders. Apologies for starting things off on a negative note, and even more so for discussing someone who didn’t even play in Wednesday night’s action. But signing a contract worth a guaranteed $44 million…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. Jae Crowder stops drinking beer and caffeine, eating bread and greasy food – and you’ll never guess what happens

    Oct 4, 2013, 4:40 PM EST

    Jae Crowder

    Jae Crowder played power forward at Marquette, though at 6-foot-6, it seemed he’d have to switch positions in the pros. Quite often, players of that mold go undrafted. But Crowder plays with so much energy and displayed a decent 3-point shot, the Mavericks chose Crowder high in the second round last summer. Crowder had a…

  8. Retirement is not on Vince Carter’s mind

    Oct 4, 2013, 12:29 PM EST

    Vince Carter

    Midway through this coming NBA season (Jan. 26, to be exact) Vince Carter will turn 37. That’s a grandpa in NBA years. The guys once known for his explosiveness has found his groove as a veteran role player off the bench in Dallas. They needed a scorer, an instant-offense guy off the bench and that…

  9. Amir Johnson really, really, really loves Toronto

    Oct 4, 2013, 10:25 AM EST

    Rudy Gay

    Understandably, Raptors fans are a little fearful of being jilted again. Chris Bosh, Vince Carter and Tracy McGrady all left Toronto via free agency or by forcing a trade. When the team’s top players – probably uncoincidentally Americans – all flee for the states, that’s no longer just a coincidence. And it doesn’t sit well…

  10. Mavericks plan to play Nowitzki, Carter about the same minutes as last season

    Sep 30, 2013, 5:19 PM EST

    Vince Carter

    Last season Vince Carter played just less than 26 minutes per game for Dallas, the season before almost the same. For a player who will turn 37 this season is that too many? And what should Dallas do with Dirk Nowitzki who played more than 31 minutes a game last season and will be age…

  11. Harrison Barnes hopes to participate in this year’s dunk contest

    Harrison Barnes

    Harrison Barnes had more than his fair share of amazing slam dunk highlights during his rookie season with the Warriors — just check out the clip above, or this collection of the team’s best plays from last year for visual confirmation. It’s rare that we get the best in-game dunkers wanting to participate in All-Star…

  12. Tracy McGrady, reflecting on his career, says he wishes he would have stayed in Toronto

    Tracy McGrady‘s NBA career didn’t really begin to blow up until after his third season, but most who observed his game closely knew it was coming. That was unfortunate for the Toronto Raptors, the team that drafted McGrady with the ninth overall pick in 1997, but who would lose him to Orlando in free agency…

    Tracy McGrady, one of the best and most versatile scorers of his generation, has decided to hang up his NBA sneakers. McGrady made the announcement on ESPN’s First Take. McGrady, 34, started last season playing in China then upon his return was picked up by the San Antonio Spurs and was a little-used reserve on…

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

    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…

  16. Kobe said he was leaning North Carolina over Duke for college

    Aug 16, 2013, 10:57 AM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    It has long been assumed that if Kobe Bryant had not opted for the NBA and instead headed to college — remember he went pro long before the ridiculous one-and-done rule — that he was headed to Duke. To this day Bryant has a great relationship with and respect for Blue Devils coach Mike Krzyzewski.…

  17. Report: Mavericks reach agreement with Samuel Dalembert

    Jul 17, 2013, 8:53 PM EST

    Samuel Dalembert

    The Dallas Mavericks have some shooters on the roster — Dirk Nowitzki, Monta Ellis, Vince Carter. They got Jose Calderon to set those guys up. What they didn’t have was a real defender in the paint — but they have solved that problem. Or at least tried to solve it. The Mavericks have reached a…

  18. Mavericks meet with Andrew Bynum; how much of his contract is guaranteed could determine where he signs

    Andrew Bynum

    UPDATE 8:24 p.m.: Things happen quickly around these parts — Andrew Bynum has agreed to sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers. 7:27 p.m.: When it was reported that the Cavaliers had offered Andrew Bynum a two-year deal worth $24 million, we knew that the contract would be incentive-based due to the injuries that prevented the big…

  19. Dwight Howard and James Harden could form NBA’s best duo

    Jul 5, 2013, 7:43 PM EST

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Dwight Howard is a center. James Harden is a guard. Howard is one of the NBA’s best defenders. Harden is one of the league’s top offensive players. Howard is an elite interior scorer. Harden’s range extends beyond the 3-point line. Howard is excellent as the screener in pick-and-rolls. Harden is superb as the ball-handler on…

  20. Mavericks want to make Dirk Nowitzki their second-best player

    Apr 21, 2013, 11:32 PM EST

    Dirk Nowitzki, Ryan Anderson

    For the first time since the 1999-00 season, when Michael Finley did it, Dirk Nowitzki didn’t lead the Mavericks in win shares. As Nowitzki missed a large of the 2012-13 season due to injury, Vince Carter, Darren Collison and Shawn Marion passed him in the all-in-one stat. If the Mavericks have their way, Nowitzki won’t…

  21. Dirk Nowitzki hits game-winning three-pointer to bury the Bulls (VIDEO)

    Dirk Nowitzki

    We talked about the race for the eighth and final playoff spot in the West between the Jazz and the Lakers earlier today, but the Mavericks are likely to be in the conversation through the end of the regular season, as well. Dallas has finally gotten Dirk Nowitzki back healthy, and has now won 11…

  22. Three Stars of the night: CP3, Dirk trade shots in Dallas

    Mar 27, 2013, 3:51 AM EST

    Dirk Nowitzki

    Best game of the night was in Dallas, and we’ve got two from that game. Plus the hot hand that did in Boston. Third Star: Chris Paul (33 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists) For much of the game Dallas took the strategy of making Chris Paul the scorer for the Clippers. This is the same…

  23. Mavericks beat Clippers, move close to playoffs… and a shave

    Mar 27, 2013, 3:01 AM EST

    Dirk Nowitzki, Matt Barnes

    One more win and the Dallas Mavericks will reach .500 — and they can shave their beards. You remember, the ones they were going to grow until they got their record even, a process that has taken so long the team starting to look like a young ZZ Top? It’s almost time for razors soon, they…

  24. DeMarcus Cousins had angry words for Kings announcer

    Mar 20, 2013, 12:48 PM EST

    DeMarcus Cousins

    DeMarcus Cousins needs to develop a thicker skin. Soon. The Kings picked up one of their better wins of the year Tuesday, dominating the fourth quarter to knock off the Clippers. In a season filled with losses on the court and bigger concerns off it, this was the kind of game the Kings and their…

  25. Throwback performance from Tim Duncan leads Spurs to win over Mavericks

    Mar 14, 2013, 11:25 PM EST

    Tim Duncan

    It wasn’t necessarily a surprise that a Spurs team with the best record in the Western Conference would bounce back from an embarrassing, blowout loss to one of the league’s bottom-feeders that they suffered in Minnesota on Tuesday. The performance from Tim Duncan that led them there, however, was definitely a bit unexpected. Duncan was…
