What do you get when you combine Mark Cuban, Bill Simmons, the MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference, a poorly-conceived gay joke and ESPN's editing practices? A controversy! We apologize for the quality of the preceding statement disguised as a joke, but it's still funnier than the one Cuban actually uttered during the conference's final panel, billed as a "Live B.S. Report: Cuban one-on-one with Simmons" and sponsored by Grantland. Cuban responded to some comments by Simmons about both he and his daughter liking the Kiss Cam with "That's because you and your boyfriend are always on it." (If you're completely unfamiliar with Simmons, well, you're probably not reading this site, but for the record, he's married to a woman.)
Cuban quickly tried to backtrack with ""Or his girlfriend, this is gender-independent commentary," but as Yahoo!'s Dan Devine pointed out, it really isn't. However, Cuban has since offered ...

Something is not right with the Dallas Mavericks.
"It's time for change,'' Jason Terry told The Dallas Morning News Friday night after losing to the Sacramento Kings in a statement trite enough to be nothing yet open-ended enough to be left to wild interpretation. "You can only look at something for so long and you're getting the same result, so at what...
Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban had a plan last summer, he executed it and he won't apologize if someone doesn't like it. After winning his first NBA title, Cuban chose not to extend a long-term offer to Tyson Chandler because he felt it hurt his chances at greatly improving the franchise this summer.
Despite Chandler's success with the New York Knicks, Cuban has no...

He’s known as one of the best sixth men in the league; a man capable of making the clutch shut late in the fourth when the game is on the line. He’s had a standout career in Dallas after being acquired from Atlanta before the 2004-05 season, but his time in Big D may be coming to an end.
Friday night, following the team’s seventh loss in its last 10 games (a 97-110 loss to...
Just when you thought that you had seen it all, the below photo has come into our lives of a Dallas Mavericks fan who has a striking resemblance to star, Dirk Nowitzki.
Seriously, the resemblance is uncanny:

On days like today, which have been pretty disappointing for me from a sports standpoint (see here and here), I’m glad there are sites like Reddit I can go to and be assured of a quick, cheap, probably sophomoric chuckle.
Sometimes you just need a quick, cheap, sophomoric chuckle.
This image, and the first comment on it, did just that for me:
I'm the good looking brother T...
Dallas Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki has a certain German look to him. Not many people resemble the big man…except this dude of course. This very well could be a member of the Busey family. I guess Dirk does resemble Jake Busey just a tad. -TO

Hmm. Well, okay. If he wants to believe that. To me, this fellow, who, whenever he gazes upon himself in the mirror, says to himself, “Man, I look just like Dallas Mavericks superstar Dirk Nowitzki,” much more resembles a combination of individuals whose DNA has been all mixed up to create some clone-like being. Just [...]
Mark Cuban is known to say what's on his mind. However, during an interview for Bill Simmons' podcast at the Sloan Sports Analytics Conference in Boston last week, Cuban said something he immediately regretted. Fortunately for the Dallas Mavericks owner, ESPN able to keep that part of the interview quiet, at least for a little while. Cuban made an off-color joke while discussing...
Mark Cuban has been labeled a homophobe this week due to a 'Kiss Cam' joke he attempted last weekend's MIT Sloan Sports Analytic Conference, sponsored by ESPN and hosted by Bill Simmons. The joke bombed as you can kind of hear in the audio above. Here is it transcripted, maybe you will crack a slight smile of amusement (I bet not):
During the height of Vince Carter's tenure with the Raptors, Glen Grunwald could have traded him and Antonio Davis for Dirk Nowitzki and Steve Nash.
Yeah, the terd of a man holding up the sign definitely looks like he can be Dirk's bro, but how can you tell he wasn't created in a test tube that was sauced up with a recipe that also included genes from Gary Busey, Geico Caveman and Chucky? This would be an amazing story if this freakshow actually ends up being his brother..
While on the bro subject, check out the clip...
It’s pretty obvious that the Dallas Mavericks aren’t the same team they were when they won the championship last year. The loss of Tyson Chandler, J.J. Barea and Caron Butler weakened the team a lot more than the Mavs would like to admit, but the record doesn’t lie.
The Mavs had the infamous “championship hangover” and got off to a slow start. They’ve recovered a little...
