Charlie Villanueva Talks Marriage Proposal, UCONN Title & More In Google Chat

Charlie Villanueva

Last Friday, we were invited to SportsBlog.com’s Hanging with the Pro’s which featured current Dallas Maverick and former member of the 2004 UConn Huskie National Championship team, Charlie Villanueva. There was no guided direction for the conversation as many topics were reached, such as the state of the NCAA and Big East, Villanueva’s UConn days, his marriage proposal and his opinion on Adam Silver. It was an inside and uncut look at how an NBA player views a variety of topics, without a swarm of media surrounding him. Read More »

Dirk Nowitzki Says Kirk Hinrich’s Foul Was “One Of The Dumber” He’s Ever Seen

Kirk Hinrich, Monta Ellis

The Dallas Mavericks beat the Chicago Bulls last night in a 132-129 double overtime thriller that could prove to be the game of the season. Easily lost amid heroics of classic contests are the gaffes that made them possible at all – except in this case, that is. Read More »

Video: Dirk Nowitzki Scores Season High 30 As Mavs Knock Off Knicks In OT

Quincy Acy, Dirk Nowitzki

The Knicks kept it surprisingly close against the Mavericks in Dallas last night despite missing their star, Carmelo Anthony. After a rough shooting night, J.R. Smith‘s miracle heave with under a second left forced OT, but it was the future Hall of Famer Dirk Nowitzki who sealed the win for Dallas by scoring a season-high 30 points. Read More »

Mavs Call Home Loss To Short-Handed Pacers “Embarrassing,” “Horrific”

Dirk Nowitzki

No win in the NBA can be assumed – all 30 teams employ professional basketball players. And considering that logic, no loss should be overly disappointing, either. The Dallas Mavericks don’t subscribe to the latter line of thinking. After falling to the Roy Hibbert-less Indiana Pacers 111-100 at American Airlines Center on Monday, Chandler Parsons and Dirk Nowitzki offered pointed words to describe the game’s outcome.

Video: Dirk Nowitzki Rolls Ankle, Then Comes Back To Hit Clutch 3 In Mavs Win

Dirk Nowitzki

With a shade under eight minutes to play in last night’s Wizards-Mavericks game at the Verizon Center in DC, Bradley Beal — in his first game of the season, after returning from injury — knocked down another three-pointer to give the Wizards an 85-84 advantage. At the same time, Dirk Nowitzki rolled his ankle on the back of Kris Humphries‘ foot. Dirk would leave, but the all-time leader in points scored by a foreign-born player would return and show why he’s a champion and future Hall of Famer. Read More »

Chandler Parsons

Dirk Nowitzki was Chandler Parsons’ childhood idol. Now that the towering sharpshooters are teammates on the Dallas Mavericks, then, it’s only natural that residents of Big D would confuse them from time to time. A day after Nowitzki surpassed Hakeem Olajuwon to become the NBA’s all-time leading international scorer, Parsons took to Starbucks for a coffee break and was mistaken for the future Hall-of-Famer.

Dirk Nowitzki On Hakeem: “I Came Up With My Own Dream Shake…The White Version”

Dirk Nowitzki, Hakeem Olajuwon

Dirk Nowitzki passed Hakeem Olajuwon last night for ninth on the league’s all-time points list, becoming basketball’s top international scorer in the process. It’s poetic that Olajuwon is the legend Nowitzki usurped for the latter milestone especially. Both players revolutionized the way we think about big men with play that could be encapsulated in an unstoppable signature move: Dirk’s one-legged fade and Hakeem’s Dream Shake. Read More »

Kobe Bryant wasn’t the only future Hall-of-Famer to make history on Tuesday night. However, this record-breaking achievement came with more of a positive spin. On a classic catch-and-shoot jumper in the fourth quarter against the visiting Sacramento Kings, Dallas Mavericks superstar Dirk Nowitzki passed the legendary Hakeem Olajuwon for ninth place on the all-time scoring list.
