As another NBA season nears, it’s time for our season previews. Rounding out the West, we head to the Southwest. Projected Conference Finish: 9th Best Move of Offseason: Andrew Bogut is not the sort of player you can typically steal as cap fodder.

Salah Mejri shares stories, swats shots at Jr. NBA clinic

Salah Mejri plays basketball with the kind of intense, youthful passion you wouldn’t expect from a 30-year-old, and that isn’t a bad thing. His fire gives him confidence and the self-belief it takes to be the first player from Tunisia to play in the NBA. There was barely any organized basketball in his country as he grew up, which meant his first exposure to the game came when...

What's next? The Mavericks' old guard and new guard

Dirk Nowitzki is a player whose Q Score with me changed over the course of his career. While I’ve always considered him great, I just believed there was something mentally weak about him as he was becoming a great player in the 2000s. The image of David West tapping Dirk’s chin while both were face-to-face and Dirk not doing anything about it is forever etched into my mind. He...

Carlisle likens Mavs’ bad start to ‘Trump debate performance’

Dallas Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle peppered his postgame analysis of the team’s “abominable” start to its preseason game against the Houston Rockets with some political commentary thanks to a barb directed at Donald Trump.

Is the 'high five' metric the only weird stat the NBA should track?

A "high five" metric? It exists and the Phoenix Suns are using it to track interaction on the court as a way to judge how "selfless" players are during a game. Hello and welcome back to the Yardbarker roundtable where we invite our experts to sit back, relax and sound off on the serious (and not so serious) parts of sports. We're a week away from the NBA regular season so it's time...

Who Are the Five Most Important Mavericks This Season?

  The Dallas Mavericks have had underwhelming rosters for multiple seasons now. Fans have not had much confidence outside of the fact that Rick Carlisle is still in the driver’s seat and Dirk Nowitzki keeps standing-up Father Time for their inevitable date.   Going into the 2016-17 season, you can feel the positive energy coming from MFFLs everywhere.

Mark Cuban takes shot at media members with buffet zinger

Mark Cuban is known for his zingers, and the media was the target of one of his lines on Sunday. The Mavs began practicing from their new court facility on Sunday. Apparently there is one difference about it, and that is there will be no buffet in the media room. Why is that you ask? “There’s already enough fata–es in the media,” Cuban apparently told reporters on Sunday...

Justin Anderson is the X-Factor in Big D

For a Dallas Mavericks organization that has (mostly) ignored the NBA Draft since stealing Dirk Nowitzki from Milwaukee in a deal 20 years ago, sophomore Justin Anderson is a ray of hope for both the present and future.  After a ho-hum showing in the regular season, the 21st pick of the 2015 NBA Draft enjoyed a mini-breakout in a short but sweet postseason series against Oklahoma...
