While speaking at the South...

The Dallas Mavericks have a lot to worry about

The only positive I can point out for the Mavericks at this point is that Dirk has found his groove again. During their three game win streak he averaged 20.3 points per game on 52.4% shooting. Nowitzki has had his fair share of problems this year, between his age and ailing elbow, but he is not done just yet. However, it seems the countless other struggles that the Dallas Mavericks...

Dirk Nowitzki Trolls Steve Nash With Hilarious Backhanded Compliment

Dirk Nowitzki and Steve Nash are close friends from their playing days together on the Dallas Mavericks. Which is good, because if the two weren’t pals, Nash probably wouldn’t have appreciated Nowitzki’s recent comments about him. Nash announced Saturday that he’s retiring after a long, successful 18-year career. During an appearance on ESPN...

Do Mavericks have a Monta Ellis problem?

The Dallas Mavericks need Monta Ellis to consistently make shots if they want to consistently win games, and neither is happening right now. Ellis is 7-for-31 in his last two outings, and off nights have become a regular occurence since the All-Star break. In early March, he finished 5-for-20 in a blowout loss to the Portland Trail Blazers, then went 2-for-14 against the Golden State...

Report: Mavs concerned about Monta Ellis' poor attitude

When Rajon Rondo and Dallas Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle got into a heated shouting match during a game last month, it appeared inevitable that Rondo would become a problem in the locker room.

Rajon Rondo, Rick Carlisle getting along much better

Just a few short weeks ago, it appeared that Rajon Rondo’s stay with the Dallas Mavericks was all but certain to be a very brief one.

Dallas isn’t down and out yet from the playoff race

Because the regular season is way too long, because the West is beyond every basketball fan’s wildest dreams, because the Mark Cuban/Rick Carlisle/Dirk Nowitzki train has been chugging along longer than any organizational foundation outside of San Antonio and because Rajon Rondo attracts blame like super models attract teenage boys. These are among the many reasons the collective...

Glen Davis drops Dirk Nowitzki with forearm to the face (VIDEO)

Not many NBA players can boast that they’ve ever been able to knock down Dirk Nowitzki. The seven-footer is athletic and also has great balance for someone that tall. But Clippers forward Glen “Big Baby” Davis is pretty big as well. He’s 6’9″ and weighs 289 pounds. When he comes running at full speed, most players would probably be best suited by just getting out of...

Is there a team for Rajon Rondo?

On May 13, 2010, Rajon Rondo scored 21 points on 60 percent shooting to go along with 12 assists, five steals, and three rebounds. At that point, such a line was relatively pedestrian by Rondo’s standards. After all, for the series in question, he averaged 20.7 points, 11.8 assists, 6.3 rebounds, and 1.8 steals. His team needed that level of production. After all, they were heavy...
