Dallas Mavericks: Mavs prepared to face tough stretch
After winning 10 of 12, and poised in making it 11 of 13, the Dallas Mavericks blew a 16-point home lead against the Chicago Bulls on Feb. 28.
The Mavs followed that up with a 112-106 loss to the San Antonio Spurs on March 2.
Now in the heart of a tight Western Conference race between teams 6-9, the Mavericks face a tough stretch...
Vince Carter, 37, believes he can play two more seasons in the NBA but is unsure about playing until he is 40.
When told Steve Nash played at the age of 40 this season, Carter said, "That’s crazy. 40? I have a couple of years left."
Carter is averaging 11.9 points and 3.6 rebounds this season as a contributor off the Dallas Mavericks' bench.
Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said last week he thinks young basketball prospects would be better off playing in in NBA's D-League than in the NCAA.
Basketball coaching legend Larry Brown is just down the street from Cuban in Dallas at SMU, but he doesn't agree.
"I admire him and think he's one of the bright guys we have in our profession, but that was the worst...
Your browser does not support iframes. More and more Dirk Nowitzki is starting to become one of my favorite personalities in the NBA. He’s always been somewhat overlooked because he plays in Dallas and not LA, Chicago, Boston or New York, and because his teams used to choke in the playoffs. But he’s mustard as […]
he Dallas Mavericks assigned rookie guard Gal Mekel to the Texas Legends of the NBA Development League on Tuesday.
Mekel is averaging 2.4 points, 2.1 assists and 9.6 minutes in 30 games this season.
Mekel has missed the last 21 games of the season after undergoing arthroscopic surgery to address a torn lateral meniscus in his right knee.
Mark Cuban believes the NBA needs to utilize its D-League (via tothepoint)
The problem with Mark Cuban’s latest idea is that it makes too much sense.
In an interview with ESPN Dallas, the billionaire Dallas Mavericks owner bashed the NCAA for the unfair one-and-done rule and said the NBA Development League is a better option because it bypasses the unfair NCAA and allows players...
Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, unsurprisingly, has a strong opinion on the NCAA and men’s college basketball, and it actually makes some sense.
Cuban told ESPN that it would be better for NBA prospects to play in the NBA’s developmental league, rather than play one year of NCAA hoops before jumping ship to the big leagues.
“The NCAA rules are so hypocritical, there’s...
Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban believes the best prospects are better off playing in the NBA’s Developmental League instead of going to college. “I think what will end up happening — and this is my opinion, not that of the league — is if the colleges don’t change from the one-and-done, we’ll go after the one,” Cuban said, via ESPN. Cuban pointed to the one and done...
Wayne Ellington is a patient man.
That patience is paying off for the Dallas Mavericks’ fifth-year guard.
In the Mavs’ first 55 games this season, Ellington played less than 10 minutes in 16 games and did not play in 28 of them because of a coach’s decision.
But in the past four games Ellington has manufactured 30 points, five rebounds and seven assists in 61 minutes. He’s...
Dallas Mavericks: What if Dirk Nowitzki stayed with the Bucks
Being a Dallas Mavericks fan for 12-plus years, I never thought what it would’ve meant if Dirk Nowitzki stayed with the Milwaukee Bucks, the team that drafted him ninth overall in 1998.
You also have to wonder how it would’ve played out for both teams. Would Nowitzki be the same Nowitzki if he was in his 16th season...
The Dallas Mavericks have assigned Jae Crowder, Shane Larkin and Bernard James to the NBA Development League for a likely one-game stay and have recalled Ricky Ledo.
All three regulars on the Dallas roster were set to be available for a home game Thursday night for the team's D-League affiliate in suburban Frisco. The Mavericks play at home Friday night against Chicago.

Damian Lillard had a little fun prior to Wednesday’s game against the Nets, hilariously imitating Shawn Marion’s unique shooting form. The Blazers guard even threw up a few Chris Bosh-like shots. h/t Bleacher Report The post Damian Lillard Imitates Shawn Marion’s Shot Pregame (Video) appeared first on Beyond The Buzzer.
Dirk Nowitzki’s 19-foot jumper bounced up and then fell in as time expired, lifting the Dallas Mavericks over the New York Knicks on Monday night. Nowitzki called it ”probably the ugliest game-winner I ever shot.” “Basically it hit the board, every part of the rim, hit Jerry West over there (the logo on the backboard), came back over and it was definitely an ugly, ugly...

Dirk Nowitzki isn’t done just yet. About a week removed from his 12th NBA All-Star appearance, the Dallas Mavericks legend crushed the Knicks with a bizarre buzzer-beating game-winner over Carmelo Anthony that banked off the glass and bounced on the rim before going in. The shot gave the Mavericks the 110-108 win. Dirk humorously described the game-winner as “probably the ugliest...
