Jason Terry Would Come Back To Dallas

His self appointed nickname, his fan friendly attitude, his ability to be the perfect complementary player for Dirk, all of it puts him near the top of the list of my favorite players of all time. And now he’s saying he’d come back to Dallas. That’s right, Jason Terry ...

Dirk Nowitzki: The World’s Worst Flopper


Dirk has been open about his feelings on flopping, and the NBA’s approach to combating it. But that doesn’t mean he isn’t willing to do a little acting of his own. Here’s a video of Dirk making the most magical, yet terrible, flop of all time in a charity soccer match in Wurzburg, Germany. I’ve also created a gif of ...

Mayo have agreed to a two year deal, with the second year being a player option. The Mavericks have 4$ million left in cap space this season, and I think it’s safe to say that they’ve given it ...

Mavs Add Elton Brand


The Mavericks added Elton Brand this afternoon, grabbing the 6’9″ F/C off of the amnesty wire for a mere $2.1 million dollars.

The Mavs have officially broken the free agent seal in 2012, with the signing of former Hornets/Clippers center Chris Kaman. The deal is for 1 year and $8 million.

Things have gotten so bad in Dallas that less than 24 hours ago, a Mavericks stalwart, 39-year-old Jason Kidd, turned down a 3-year, $9 million deal to go to New York. That wouldn’t be too terrible, if it wasn’t for one thing: He left for the exact same contract. ...
