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...

Got heeem!The Mavericks arrived in Germany on Thursday for a few days of fun before their exhibition game on Saturday, and some members of the team were more affected by the long day of traveling than others. Germany native Dirk Nowitzki was able to catch coach Rick Carlisle sleeping on the bus with his mouth wide open, and he shared the picture on Twitter. I’m not sure how this...

Nowitzki, Duncan prove loyalty is not dead

Two 7-point pillars, in every sense of the word, reside at the opposite ends of Texas. One anchors the south, while the other takes up shop north. Their differences are as stark as San Antonio and Dallas. Neither city is confused with the other. Just ask the residents. But for all that's different in the two towns either real or imagined remember both are in the Lone Star...

Dirk Nowitzki is not a fan of the new NBA anti-flopping rules

I am not sure how the NBA plans on enforcing the rules and fines they have put in place to rid itself of players flopping, but I applaud David Stern and the league for moving forward with the sweeping changes. Obviously, there are players who are not happy about this, such as Dallas Mavericks forward, [...]

West ready for first full season with Mavs

DALLAS-- No matter how he might have been viewed before joining the Dallas Mavericks prior to last season, Delonte West was a great addition to Rick Carlisle's roster last year. Of course, his truly gruesome finger injury limited him to just 44 games but when he was healthy and on the floor, as Carlisle put it after practice on Wednesday, West had an impact in every phase of...

Video: Mark Cuban + Booze + Gangham Dance Style = Awesome

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is quite the character. During his early years as an NBA owner he voiced his displeasure of refs, amassed many fine because of it, splurges on his players and likes to party.

Mark Cuban Buys Nets.com Domain, Messes With Prokhorov

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban made his billions through an internet business so it's fair to say that the man knows a little about the online world. Apparently, Mikhail Prokhorov, the New Jersey Brooklyn Nets' owner, (or at least the team's staff) is not as well-versed in the web.  In a solid bit of equal parts internet trolling and amusing, Cuban purchased...

Dirk And Blake Bash The New Flopping Rules

“I think it’s a bunch of crap to be honest with you. Are they going to come back after a game and fine you for flopping? That’s tough to do to me.’’                – Dirk Nowitzki “It’s not going to win or lose games for anybody. It’s a good way for the NBA to get more money. I guess it’s good in a sense that it stops any of it from happening...

However, during their time in the NBA, for a while they had the most electrifying dunker in this recent era of the NBA -- Vince Carter. "Air Canada" provided fans to pack arenas to...

Nets Day Video: The Great Drazen Petrovic

Long before there was Manu Ginobili, Dirk Nowitzki, Tony Parker, Pau Gasol there was Drazen Petrovic. Petrovic was the first big-time foreign star in the NBA and proved that the game did not just belong in America. Drazen was a deadly outside shooter with a killer instinct. He dropped points like no other and there was no shot he would not pass up. However, the thing was... he...
