Video: Dirk Nowitzki Shows Proper Way To Videobomb

Chandler Parsons, Dirk Nowitzki, Skin Wade

A couple years ago the Miami Heat started to videobomb each other during post-game interviews. They were led by kooky Chris Bosh, but we always felt they lacked the nonchalance necessary to really videobomb a teammate. Thankfully, Dirk Nowitzki showed just how to properly videobomb a couple days ago when Skin Wade was trying to interview Chandler Parsons. Read More »

Dirk Nowitzki & Rajon Rondo Say DeMarcus Cousins Deserves An All-Star Nod

DeMarcus Cousins

After DeMarcus Cousins dropped a near triple-double on them last night in Sacramento — and may have won it for the Kings if not for amateur thespian, Tyson Chandler, the Mavs breathed a sigh of relief. They also made it clear they appreciated how good Boogie has become, and — despite how deep the field is this year — both Rajon Rondo and Dirk Nowitzki say he deserves to be elected to his very first All-Star game.

Dirk Nowitzki Says Ball Will Be In Hands Of Monta Ellis During Crunch-Time

Monta Ellis, Dirk Nowitzki

Despite a nearly unprecedented level of play in his career’s twilight, Dirk Nowitzki understands his basketball mortality. The 36 year-old Dallas Mavericks legend is still the fulcrum from which his team’s league-leading offense swings, but no longer possesses the physical attributes that made him a devastating late-game playmaker. It’s a good thing, then, that Monta Ellis is around to pick up Dirk’s relative slack. Read More »

LeBron James, Bill Russell

With Christmas approaching this week, we thought it would make sense to count down the 10 biggest Christmas Day moments in NBA history, culminating in our top two choices on Christmas Eve 2014.

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 »

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 »

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. Read More »
