Found January 26, 2012 on Jocks and Stiletto Jill:
The Dallas Mavericks were finally presented with their championship rings Wednesday night. The ring contains 250 diamonds and is 10 karats. Jason Kidd, Dirk Nowitzki, and Jason Terry all had input on the design of the ring. The top of the ring, which is made of 14-karat white gold, the edges read “World Champions,” with [...]

Dirk makes memorable call on the mic

Dirk Nowitzki threw on the headset and grabbed a microphone to call a few plays Wednesday night. Heck, the Mavericks superstar is sitting out a few games to improve his conditioning so why not do a little play-by-play for a few minutes in the first half. Fortunately for those watching at home, while Nowitzki was on the mic, one of the best alley-opps of the season took place. Jason...

Kidd, Nowitzki, West out for Mavs

Dallas Mavericks starting point guard Jason Kidd left Friday night's game against the Utah Jazz in the first quarter with a strained right calf and did not return. Kidd, who missed four games earlier in the season with a back injury, left the court less than three minutes after the opening tip and headed for the locker room. He was soon ruled out the rest of the game. The Mavericks...

Somebody Let Dirk Nowitzki Have The Microphone Again, And The Results Were Äußerst Komisch

Dirk Nowitzki's occasional stints as a TV analyst have led to catchphrases including "Take Dat With You," which became an unofficial rallying cry for last year's Mavericks. Dirk's grunts and ************ are funny, for sure—even if sometimes in a "does my breath smell funny" or "does my car sound funny"...


DIRK NOWITZKI is obviously auditioning for Stan Burrett’s job on SportsCenter. The six-foot-eleven MC got on the mic during the Mavs-Timberwolves game Wednesday and came up with his own brand of play-by-play after teammate BRANDAN WRIGHT throws down an alley-oop… Dirk’s chant of “Shut it Down! Let’s Go Home!” was enthusiastic enough but needs a little work with tone...

Dirk Nowitzki Disputes Claims That He Began the Season Out of Shape

Prompted by his coach and management, Dirk Nowitzki took a break from playing in NBA games to get his body right, which led some in the local media to publish some outlandish claims about his conditioning and overall dedication (or lack thereof.) Nowitkzi was given a chance to respond. From the Star-Telegram: “Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki says he is much better after...

Jason Terry Gives Dramatic Reading of "U Can't Touch This" (Video)

In the latest installment of the Dallas Mavericks' "Dramatic Reading" series, guard Jason Terry gives a reading of the classic MC Hammer song "U Can't Touch This". Previously in the series, Dirk Nowitzki read Britney Spears' "Oops, I Did It Again." Still not sure what the point of these readings are, but the players seem to be having...

Jazz-Mavericks Preview

The Dallas Mavericks seem happy they don't have to worry about any more ceremonies honoring their first NBA championship. Another disheartening defeat followed a night when the Mavericks received their rings, and they'll try to regroup Friday night as they continue to play without Dirk Nowitzki when they host the Utah Jazz. Dallas (11-8) raised its championship banner before...

Mavs to Get Championship Rings Tonight

After six months, the Dallas Mavericks will finally have their championship rings for beating the Miami Heat 4-2 in the NBA Finals last summer. Thursday night, before a game against former Maverick and current Timberwolf JJ Barea, the Dallas Mavericks, and Barea, will receive their rings in a short, 15-minute ceremony. Also on hand will be Peja Stojakovic, who retired from the...
