Come on LeBron – put your Mavericks jersey on

July 5th, 2010

From Marc Stein at ESPN.com:

“Sources with knowledge of James’ thinking have maintained for months that the Mavericks — with Cuban’s aggressive and player-friendly ownership, Nowitzki’s presence as an ideal, floor-spreading complement to James’ slashing game and James’ close friend Jason Kidd leading Dallas’ recruiting efforts — can’t be dismissed as a dark-horse contender to land him.”

2009 Mavs – A Retrospective

May 5th, 2010

This is how the Mavs’ 2009 season ends: “Not with a bang, but a whimper.”  Specifically, an uninspired 97-87 loss to the San Antonio Spurs.

Or better yet, as the Dallas Observer puts it, the Mavs “lift our hopes, only to break our hearts again.” » Read more: 2009 Mavs – A Retrospective

Mavs beat Nuggets; reclaim mojo

March 30th, 2010

Dallas hopefully put an end to a mixed stretch of games last night, beating the Nuggets 109 – 93.  This win was especially key, as it gave the Mavs the playoff-seeding tiebreaker with the Nuggets (in the event both teams finish with the same record).  I recommend Mike Fisher’s analysis at DallasBasketball.com.

The Mavs have guts – we can roll with this

March 24th, 2010

The Mavs beat the Clippers last night. Ordinarily this wouldn’t be “news”, but last night’s win involved a 4th quarter comeback led by Jason Kidd, after Dirk was ejected following some “I really miss you guys” pushing and shoving with Drew Gooden.

The important part is the Mavs channeled their frustration at struggling to beat the Clippers, playing well late after a mediocre start: icing the game in the 4th quarter instead of letting it get close.

Mavs fans familiar with 4th quarter drama over the past few years should take heart: these Mavs have guts.

Go Mavs! Go Cats!

March 12th, 2010

Brandford Doolittle threw it out there in an article today: is this the best Mavs team ever?

Sweet!  As a Mavs fan, just having this conversation is awesome.

And if you’re a Northwestern Wildcats fan, you’re psyched that the ‘Cats made it to the 2nd day of the Big Ten tournament.  NU Sports being what they are, this is to some extent sad this is remarkable, but it’s still worth adulation.  Go Cats!  And follow today’s game vs. Purdue here.

Mavs beat Nets; win 13 straight

March 11th, 2010

The Mavs won their 13th straight game last night, beating the Nets 96 – 87.  (For those of you who haven’t watched ESPN at all the past week, this represents a tie for longest winning streak in the NBA this season).

This should come as much of a relief as a celebration, as the Nets are the worst team in the league.  Losing last night would have been bad, bad news.  But after falling behind early (39 points in 1st half), Kidd, Butler, Marion, Beaubois, and Haywood helped pick up the slack for an ice-cold Dirk.

See here for more quotes and commentary on last night’s game from Mike Fisher at DallasBasketball.com.
