  1. Dwight Howard’s ultimate fallback plan? Dallas.

    Jul 26, 2012, 2:11 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic's Dwight Howard gestures during the first half of their NBA basketball game against the Boston Celtics in Boston

    Let us hope it doesn’t come to this. Not because I care if Dallas lands Dwight Howard or not but because it would mean 11 more months of this drama. None of us need that. Howard has made it clear that he wants to be traded and where he wants to be traded. And while…

  2. The Inbounds: Dallas’ Improv High-Wire Act

    Jul 24, 2012, 6:00 PM EDT

    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

    Welcome to The Inbounds, touching on a big idea of the day. It could be news, it could be history, it could be a tangent, it could be love. OK, it’s probably not love. Enjoy. Dallas had the worst offseason. Dallas had the best offseason. Two sides, one coin. Usually when you whiff on a…

  3. O.J. Mayo announces he will sign with Dallas Mavericks

    Jul 17, 2012, 7:54 AM EDT

    O. J. Mayo

    O.J. Mayo didn’t like being the third or fourth option in Memphis, he wanted starters minutes and a bigger role. He may have found all that in Dallas. Mayo tweeted late Monday nightw that he would sign in Dallas for the upcoming season. Terms of any deal are not yet known. While Dallas has worked…

  4. Breaking News: Blake Griffin can still dunk so hard NBA stars freak out

    Jul 8, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin arrives for a news conference announcing the players selected for the 2012 U.S. Olympic men's basketball team in Las Vegas

    One thing that is commonly said by reporters covering Team USA, outside of the annoying lack of media access, the joy of being in Vegas long-term, and the long travel hours traipsing the world for exhibitions and the games, there’s usually a level of awe at the amount of talent in one room. Kobe Bryant,…

  5. Winderman: Dallas blew it all up for this?

    Jul 3, 2012, 9:40 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks' Nowitzki walks off the court during a timeout against the Oklahoma City Thunder during their NBA Western Conference quarter-final playoff basketball game in Dallas

    The Mavericks blew it up for this? To finish as runner-up for Deron Williams? The Mavericks put aside one of Dirk Nowitzki‘s precious few quality remaining seasons on the promise of potential hope? Yes, the Mavericks still could recover next summer, if Chris Paul doesn’t reach a new deal with the Clippers, if Dwight Howard…

  6. Charles Barkley joins growing chorus annoyed with Blake Griffin flopping

    May 8, 2012, 3:24 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, lKenyon Martin

    After last night’s Memphis loss to the Clippers, I asked a couple Memphis players if the Clippers’ theatrics and flopping bothered them. Nobody would go near the topic. Well, Memphis coach Lionel Hollins called Chris Paul a flopper on national television, but even off the record the Memphis players would shake their heads to acknowledge…

  7. Video: Top 10 bloopers from NBA regular season

    May 4, 2012, 8:45 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    The fine folks at NBA.com put together a blooper reel from this past season, and it seemed like the one thing that might make Mavericks and Knicks fans smile today. So here you go. I mean, it’s got Dwight Howard eating a cookie, Blake Griffin‘s airball free throws, Vince Carter‘s vintage travel and more. But…

  8. Video: Watch Vince Carter airball a finger roll

    Apr 11, 2012, 9:59 AM EDT

    Vince Carter

    I mean, Vince Carter is no Nick Young when it comes to blown layups, but this is pretty impressive. There is nobody around him to challenge this, he just misses it. Vince Carter had some good plays as well Tuesday night, but even he was laughing at this one.

  9. Ryan Anderson in walking boot, says ankle looks “like a softball”

    Ryan Anderson

    From the Orlando Sentinel’s Joshua B. Robbins: Ryan Anderson says his right ankle still looks like a “softball.” He’s wearing a walking boot. The 23-year old Anderson, who was once a throw-in in a trade that sent Vince Carter to the Magic, has been enjoying a breakout season for the Magic — his PER is…

  10. 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…

  11. Video: Another day, another monster slam from Blake Griffin

    Mar 18, 2012, 12:02 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    Blake Griffin is going to end his career mentioned with Vince Carter, Shawn Kemp and the other great in-game dunkers of the NBA at his peak. Because he does things like this every game. It helps to have Chris Paul feeding you and all, but this guy is a monster. Whether he finishes his career…

  12. Phoenix 96, Dallas 94: Suns come back from double-digit defict to take down Mavericks

    Mar 9, 2012, 4:21 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki, Grant Hill

    A few weeks ago, any talk involving the Phoenix Suns and the word “playoffs” would have seemed completely ridiculous — and maybe, to a certain extent, it still is. But the Suns have shown they possess the necessary grit and fight that is evident in postseason teams, battling back from double-digit deficits in their last…

    Feb 25, 2012, 11:57 PM EDT

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    Jeremy Evans of the Utah Jazz was a late addition to the 2012 Sprite Slam Dunk contest, only getting in after the Knicks’ Iman Shumpert bowed out due to injury. But he made the most of it, and the best of his three dunks — a leap over a seated Gordon Hayward, who threw two…

  17. 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…

  19. Mark Cuban continues to put his money where his mouth is

    Feb 5, 2012, 11:30 AM EDT

    Mark Cuban

    Mark Cuban badgers officials. He needles the league office. He antagonizes opposing players and fans. He recently advised me on Twitter to notify him when I got a clue after a crack about Vince Carter. But he walks the walk. Cuban notoriously matches every fine he gets from the league for whatever acerbic thing he…

  20. Magic GM Smith says no trades coming anytime soon

    Jan 31, 2012, 11:09 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard, Glen Davis

    Orlando has been a mess for the past couple weeks. Their offense has come apart at the seams — they scored 56 against Boston last week, just 69 against Philadelphia Monday, blew a 27 point lead in another Boston game and got blown out by the Hornets last week. They are struggling. Mightily. This is…

    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…

  22. 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…

    Jan 17, 2012, 9:42 AM EDT

    vince-carter-550

    Vince Carter was the guy who got the shot to try and tie the Lakers Monday night and send a dramatic yet sloppy game to overtime. He missed. And instantly after he landed he started limping. While the Lakers celebration raged on around them the trainers came out to check on Carter’s foot, even Mark…
