Time To Rebuild


First of all, let's not get all lost in the glow of beating up on the Warriors. The Mavericks have proven nothing beyond the fact that they can be inconsistent at this point. My last article I even...

Are We Miami Or Are We Cleveland?


Here we are at the halfway point in the season, and the Mavericks have provided little glimpse as to who they really are other than horribly inconsistent. A look for any kind of season-long trends...

The Good, The Bad, And The ugly


The Good While the Mavs offense and defense are both not nearly as good as they have been in years past in terms of efficiency, they are still above average. Currently, Knickerblogger's stats page...

Who Is Devin Harris?


John Hollinger compares Devin Harris to Kevin Johnson in his Per Diem piece today. I don't think that's accurate. With his drive and dish, drive and score, and drive and pop range of moves, I think...

I Can't Get A Handle On This Team


I've watched the games, and I've examined the stats. I've waited and waited for some kind of trend to show itself, but I can't wait any longer. We're 16 games into the season, and I still don't...

The Great Smokescreen of 2007-2008


Let's get this out right away: The Mavs are much better than just about anyone is giving them credit for. While they aren't a lock to win the Southwest Division, let alone the Western Conference,...

Jermaine O'Neal Possibilities


With Rick Carlisle in the building, Bill Ingram over at Hoopsworld floated the possibility of a Mavs trade for Jermaine O'Neal of the Pacers during the summer. The centerpiece of his article was...

Carlisle Shores Up Some Weaknesses


While it is trendy to bash Avery Johnson, there is no doubt he is an excellent young coach. Johnson definitely has weaknesses, however, and, looking ahead, it is important to identify Avery's...

Optimistic Stat-Of-The-Day


Home teams, so far in these playoffs, are 15-4. Being down 0-2 after two road losses doesn't seem quite so bad when you see that the Mavs are far from alone. And when you consider that three...
