Why did the Mavs sign George?

"His experience and ability to run the floor and play and defend multiple positions will be a great asset for us this season." - Rick Carlise Interesting take on a player who hasn't consistently been able to do those things since he became a Maverick. I do hope he is right though, and I am wrong.

Jason Kidd: Open Thread


First off, congratulations to Kidd and Team USA for pulling out a close win against Spain early Sunday morning. Not sure how many of you followed Kidd and Dirk in the Olympics these past few...

Dare I suggest, Artest 2.0?

It's something I always think about," Jackson said from his basketball camp. "It's definitely something that has to be addressed because of what I do for this team and what I've done since I've been here, bringing this team from one of the bottom teams in the league to a playoff team, to a team that won 49 games. It's not what I want, it's what I deserve. "... I won't be comfortable going into this season knowing I have to play this whole season being the fifth highest-paid and not get an extension. I would not be happy."... Jack hasn't been paying much attention to the Warriors of late if he thinks he -- a 30-year-old bottle rocket who has been great on winning teams and disastrous on losing, stagnant teams -- is getting an extension. Mullin snubbed Baron, Monta and Andris last summer! If there's no gun to his head (as there definitely was with Monta and Biedrins this summer), Mullin's not flinching. So if Jackson isn't getting an extension, and he acts as "uncomfortable" as he says he will be, there's only one other solution: trade him. Maybe it will work out for the best (the Ron Artest booby prize?) but I can't see how it results in making Jack more money next year. His contract has 2 years left on it, at about 7.5 a year.

Ortegel is BACK!!!!

Bob Ortegel, the colorful, opinionated and sometimes polarizing analyst on Dallas Mavericks broadcasts, will enter his 21st season with the team back in his more familiar seat next to play-by-play man Mark Followill on the television broadcast, multiple sources confirmed Thursday. Mavericks owner Mark Cuban switched the broadcast teams before last season by swapping the club’s two longstanding color commentators. Ortegel, a stalwart on the TV broadcast, moved to radio while Brad Davis took his straightforward approach to television.

Surprise Surprise, Shaq steps in it again

Look, there were a lot of reasons that I never liked this trade and most of them had to do with what the Big Breather brought (or no longer brought) on the court. But I never liked the big guy's act either and here's just another example. According to court docs Shaq wrote her one email that reads, "I dnt no who the fuk u think u dealin wit u will neva be heard from one phone call is all I gotta make no try me. Sho me." The docs also allege Shaq sent her "an unsolicited vulgar and offensive illustration of a man physically restraining a woman while forcing her to engage in sexual intercourse with him." How do you think this incident + his rap on Kobe compares to Josh Howard's summer?

Wait, what?


That was my initial reaction to the George signing.  I am still too confused by this too even try and make sense of it.  This raises so many questions as to what direction this team is looking...

USA throttles Germany by 49


[Note by Toddy, 08/23/08 12:34 PM MDT ] Sorry, the USA won by 49, beating Germany 106-57.  Thanks srdmad for pointing that out. Dirk's Olympics hopes are done now, as Team USA whipped Germany...

Finley to re-sign with Spurs


Good for him, good for us. Had we traded Stack and Jones, he might have been a good pick up, but seeing how we have yet to do anything this summer, signing him would have been a bad move with Stack and Jones still on the team.

Catching up with Bass

"I would definitely play for free," says Brandon Bass. "Why not? I work on my game for free."... "From Day 1, Coach (Johnson) believed in me," says Bass. When I was with the Hornets, we played Dallas and even though it was garbage time, I played hard. He came over to me after the game and told me he liked how hard I played and that it would pay off." "So when I came to Dallas, he already knew how hard I worked," he continues. "But he didn’t know what I could do." For the rest of this article, click the link above. Its a great read.

Livingston not returning to Clippers?


Should the Mavs go after him? Livingston said 10-12 NBA teams have expressed interest in him. Many of their representatives will be at the Chicago gym to watch him work out in the coming weeks. "They're interested in the fact that I'm still young, still a 6-7 guard," he said. "They're interested in a lot of the things I bring to the table. My services can definitely be used around the NBA."

The Dallas Mavericks '08-'09 Schedule


The Mavericks open up on October 30 against The Houston Rockets on TNT, and they will also end the season against the Rockets on April 15.

Howard = Pierce?

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Police detained NBA star Paul Pierce in handcuffs during a weekend traffic stop on the Las Vegas Strip, but released him without issuing a summons. Las Vegas police Officer Bill Cassell said Monday that Pierce was handcuffed briefly after emerging "a little agitated" from a vehicle he was driving around 3 a.m. Sunday. Pierce led the Boston Celtics to the championship this year and was MVP of the finals. The 6-foot-7, 235-pound Pierce was given field sobriety tests and a Breathalyzer, which registered below the legal limit. Cassell said Pierce was not arrested.

Howard Arrested


Thanks buddy, this is exactly what this team needs right now. Mavericks guard Josh Howard was arrested in Winston-Salem, N.C. Thursday night for street racing, according to police.

OT Step Brothers and Cuban


For those of you who saw it, did you also pick up on the Mark Cuban reference? The scene-stealing, then, is left to Adam Scott, who plays the smarmy other brother, Derek Huff. With a sleek earpiece permanently clipped to his face, Scott eats up the screen: He bears an uncanny resemblance to Tom Cruise as the motivational speaker in "Magnolia," which is no doubt purposeful. He is the successful brother, the one who left home, got married, had kids and is now going trophy-fishing with Mark Cuban ("Cubes")
