As the Mavericks fall further out of contention, dealing Andrew Bogut seems like a surefire option

The Dallas Mavericks aren’t a good basketball team – and for the first time in the Dirk-era, it’s time for the organization to actively tank. Tanking isn’t an easy proposition for a team which hasn’t had a losing record since the new millennium. But, barring an impossible string of wins, the Mavericks season is already lost. Ravished by injuries to key veterans Nowitzki...

Screengrab Snafu: The Kings REALLY ran up the score on the Mavericks last night

We know the Dallas Mavericks are having a very rough season. The proud Mark Cuban-owned franchise have fallen all the way down to SixersLand, just a half game ahead of Philly for the worst record in the NBA at an abysmal 4-17 on the season. A team that was once known for its high octane offense is now averaging a paltry 92.1 points per game. Things are bad in Dallas. But bad enough...

Wise on the floor but young in years, Dorian Finney-Smith has made big first impression during his rookie season

If a rookie season is like an Intro to NBA class, consider Dorian Finney-Smith in the advanced placement section — and on the accelerated track. “He just gains more wisdom as he gets his (tail) kicked,” Mavs head coach Rick Carlisle deadpanned recently. Carlisle has even gone as far as to say Finney-Smith takes it personally when opponents score on him. He becomes upset when...

Dirk Nowitzki Addresses His Lingering Achilles Injury

Dirk Nowitzki’s role has been mostly cheerleader/assistant coach this season. (Dallas Morning News)   On the court, Saturday night’s 107-82 win over the Chicago Bulls was a season-high in terms of good vibes for the Mavericks.  Off the court, the pre and post game feelings weren’t as positive.   About forty five minutes before tip-off, beat writer Earl K.

We shouldn’t be angry about the Mavericks losing

The last 15 years have reminded us that all good things must come to an end. This is not a normal feeling. Losses are piling like a bunch of dirty dishes after a busy night at the Cheesecake Factory. The effort is there, but the results don’t equal the passion. A franchise, known for the last decade-and-a-half for its winning prowess, finds itself at the bottom of the NBA standings...

Mark Cuban says the Mavericks aren’t tanking, but they should

Ravaged with multiple injuries to key starters, the Dallas Mavericks start to the 2016-17 has been an unmitigated disaster. But, despite winning an NBA-low three of 16 games, Mavs owner Mark Cuban isn’t ready to throw in the towel.

The End Of The "One Last Shot" Era In Dallas

The Dirk Nowitzki farewell tour is turning out similarly to that of Kobe Bryant’s a year ago. Sure, there may not be the gift-giving, brutal inefficiency, and general basketball horror, but there’s losing -– a lot of losing. At 2-13, the Dallas Mavericks have the worst record in the NBA. And with four back-to-backs in the month of December, their schedule isn’t exactly easing...

Rick Carlisle offers great perspective for 2-11 Mavericks

The 2016-17 season has been tough so far for the Dallas Mavericks, and that’s putting it lightly. Dallas is currently 2-11 and on a six-game losing streak. The Mavs are dead last in the Southwest Division, and they’re also the worst team in the NBA’s Western Conference. To add insult to injury, though, it’s not just the West that Dallas is looking up at. With only two wins...

When losing J.J. Barea to injury is a massive problem, you're in it up to your neck.

Barea goes away, but the Mavs need him: Deron Williams has a bum calf too, Devin Harris has yet to...
