Dallas Mavericks basketball, that is. I am so ready for basketball to start and to be able to see the new Mavericks lineup and roster they have designed. I know, a lot of people are cringing at the thought of the Mavs hitting the court without their floor general Jason Kidd and the ever present Jason “the Jet” Terry to arouse the crowd, but I am kind of excited to see what the new look will bring.There have been so many grumbles from the media, the fans and looking at the posts on facebook, twitter and such of how Mark  Cuban and Donnie Nelson have let the 2011 Championship team implode and the only 2 remaining is Dirk and Shawn Marion, well a lot of that wasn’t their doing.

Dirk Nowitzki on NBA flopping rule: ‘I think it’s a bunch of crap’

It would be tough to argue that the new flopping rule the NBA has put into place for the upcoming season won’t benefit the game in some way. Any type of fine is going to discourage players from doing something on some level, so it certainly can’t make the situation any worse. Flopping has become a league-wide epidemic, and those who are found guilty of it from now on will be...
