Boris Diaw didn’t “drop” Dirk Nowitzki last night. The Frenchman didn’t cross his fellow import, or even fake the pride of Germany to the ground. Nowitzki simply twice slipped on the same spot slick floor. We’ll admit this, though: Diaw certainly wouldn’t have made Dirk look so silly if this were the mid-200s. Read More »

Video: Chandler Parsons Spikes Slam Against Spurs In First Dunk Of The Season

Chandler Parsons

The Mavs are outplaying the defending champs on ring night, but all defending champs have a tendency to underwhelm when they’re receiving their hardware from the previous season. Chandler Parsons started the 2014-15 season with a dunk after sluicing through the Spurs’ D (Gregg Popovich already has a lot of tape to show his team) before the one-handed slam. Read More »

Dirk Says Dinners Are On Chandler Parsons Because “It’s My Money Anyway”

Dirk Nowitzki, Chandler Parsons

Dirk Nowitzki took a massive paycut on the deal he signed with the Dallas Mavericks this summer. Despite the 36 year-old holding max-level offers from the Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Lakers, and undoubtedly many more, Dirk signed on Mark Cuban’s dotted line for a paltry $25 million over three seasons so Dallas could ink Chandler Parsons to a contract carrying a $15 million salary while maintaining future financial flexibility. Talk about team first. Read More »

Mavs Coach Carlisle Says LeBron James Is “No Doubt” A Top Five Player Of All-Time

LeBron James

If any coach in the NBA could underappreciate LeBron James, one would assume it might be Rick Carlisle. After all, it was Carlisle’s Dallas Mavericks that beat LeBron’s Miami Heat in the 2011 Finals by rendering the four-time MVP a broken shell of his normally dominant self. Instead of gloating or feeling excessive pride over forcing James to a career nadir that would prove the genesis of so much unparalleled success in the interim, though, Carlisle seems to think more of LeBron than most of his coaching peers.

Chandler Parsons

The three-year, $46 million offer sheet that Chandler Parsons signed with the Dallas Mavericks might have been the means of his departure from the nearby Houston Rockets. But according to Dirk Nowitzki’s latest running mate, the cleanliness of his new team’s town is another boon compared to his old one’s.
