  1. The Extra Pass: Blake Griffin’s Undeserved Reputation

    Jan 14, 2013, 9:30 AM EST

    Blake Griffin

As fans, we take on the role of production line workers when new players enter the league. We inspect them quickly, stamp…

  2. Cousins says push to face of Carter was “unintentional.” Sure.

    Jan 11, 2013, 1:55 PM EST

    DeMarcus Cousins

    DeMarcus Cousins acts like the world just happens to him. He’s a passive bystander who just somehow keeps ending up in all these bad situations. Like say, getting ejected after pushing Vince Carter in the face. Which is what happened on Thursday night in overtime of the Kings loss to the Mavericks. Cousins said after…

  3. While everyone talked Seattle, Dallas and Sacramento played a good game (that the Mavs won)

    Jan 11, 2013, 3:19 AM EST

    kings_mavericks

    As people filed into the Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, it felt like the game was secondary. All everyone was talking about was the reports that the Kings could be sold to the Chris Hansen/Steve Ballmer group out of Seattle and moved. But despite the best efforts of the Maloof family to seemingly follow the…

  4. Three Stars of the Night: Heat Checked

    Jan 11, 2013, 2:30 AM EST

    Nicolas Batum,LeBron James

    Three games were on the menu Thursday night, and each brought their own unique flavor. If you love defense (or hate scoring), Pacers-Knicks was the game for you. With Carmelo Anthony serving his one-game suspension, the Knicks really struggled to generate offense and relied almost solely on J.R. Smith heroics most of the night. That…

  7. Video: Vince Carter can still get up, throw it down

    Dec 30, 2012, 11:03 PM EST

    Vince Carter

    There were not many highlights for Dallas out of Sunday night — the Mavs were lackluster and the Spurs were their usual efficient selves. The final result was 111-86 San Antonio. But there was Vince Carter channeling his 2002 self with an impressive spinning dunk over just returned Kawhi Leonard. So enjoy that Mavs fans.…

  8. LeBron says he will never do All-Star Dunk Contest

    Dec 24, 2012, 9:41 AM EST

    LeBron James

    LeBron James is a powerful in-game dunker. Sometimes those kinds of dunkers don’t translate well to the showy exhibition that is the NBA’s Dunk Contest All-Star weekend. Think Shannon Brown. Heck, Jazz forward Jeremy Evans told Chris Tomasson of Fox Sports Florida he could beat LeBron in the contest because we’ve never seen LeBron in…

  9. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Pierce, Rondo lead Celtics to win

    Dec 13, 2012, 6:57 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Boston Celtics

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while watching the Sandy relief concert and thinking the Who looked really old… Celtics 117, Mavericks 115 (2OT): This game was fun. It entertained. Oh, no it wasn’t pretty at all — Dallas had 27 turnovers — but it had its…

    Dec 7, 2012, 2:42 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Phoenix Suns

    PHOENIX — Dallas barely showed up for their game against the Clippers on Wednesday, falling behind by double-digits early and then never really competing while the second half turned into nothing more than extended garbage time. Things began similarly in Phoenix on Thursday, with the Suns getting out to an 11-1 lead in the game’s…

  11. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Sixers get win despite Vince Carter heroics

    Nov 28, 2012, 4:30 AM EST

    Dorell Wright, Shawn Marion

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while watching a Christmas lights show timed out to “Gangnam Style”… Pacers 79, Lakers 77: Sometimes you watch a game and think neither team deserves to win it. That was this game. It was ugly. But despite 40 from Kobe Bryant…

  12. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Lakers, Celtics both lose; it’s not the ‘80s anymore

  15. Report: Mavs may replace Delonte West with Eddy Curry

    Oct 25, 2012, 6:43 PM EST

    BKB-GER-US-ALBA-MAVERICKS

    This would be an interesting swap. If it happens. We told you earlier today the Mavericks have suspended Delonte West indefinitely. Now comes the report that the Mavericks want to cut ties with West and drastically improve their locker room with Eddy Curry, who they picked up on waivers. From the Dallas Morning News. The…

  16. NBA Season Preview: Dallas Mavericks

    Oct 24, 2012, 1:59 PM EST

    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

    Last Season: Coming off their incredible championship season, the Mavericks let defensive anchor Tyson Chandler go to New York in order to retain future cap flexibility. While that decision certainly hurt the chances of a true title defense, the acquisition of Lamar Odom probably buried it altogether. Despite those massive offseason failings, the veteran Mavs…

  17. Vince Carter wants to be the new Jet in Dallas

    Oct 21, 2012, 4:31 PM EST

    BASKET-ESP-NBA-BARCELONA-DALLAS

    Vince Carter, Sixth Man of the Year? No, I don’t see it either. But part of the Mavericks’ success the past few years — part of their championship — is Jason Terry coming off the bench and changing the dynamic of the game. Putting up points, creating shots, draining threes and changing the flow of…

  18. Video: Jalen Rose talks about time Vince Carter went off on Sam Mitchell

    Sep 24, 2012, 11:54 AM EST

    Vince Carter

    Back in 2005, the Toronto locker room friction between Vince Carter and then coach Sam Mitchell was legendary. It didn’t last long as Carter requested a trade and slumped his way out of town in a way that made Dwight Howard look professional. Generally, these things are not talked about outside the locker room by…

  19. The Inbounds: How the West will almost-but-not-actually be won

    Aug 29, 2012, 1:52 PM EST

    Zach Randolph, Marc Gasol, Kenyon Martin, Blake Griffin

    Parity has become something of a naughty word around intelligent conversation about the NBA. Because parity is another word for “competitive balance” and that was the word the owners and league used to justify killing off 20 percent of the season last year. (When in truth the hard cap wouldn’t help a damn bit with…

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

    Jul 26, 2012, 2:11 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jul 24, 2012, 6:00 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jul 17, 2012, 7:54 AM EST

    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…

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

    Jul 8, 2012, 11:00 AM EST

    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,…

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

    Jul 3, 2012, 9:40 PM EST

    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…

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

    May 8, 2012, 3:24 PM EST

    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…
