Novak had his best NBA season in 2011-12 averaging career highs in minutes per game (18.9), points (8.8) and rebounds (2.0). His 47% from beyond the arc was a key component to an improved Knicks team that desperately...

Steve Novak is returning to the New York Knicks with a four-year deal worth $15 million. Novak's agent, Mark Bartelstein, said Monday the deal is a reward for a player who finally got his opportunity and took advantage of it.

Nelson: I won't tear apart Mavericks

Donnie Nelson talked about the future Monday. Following a disastrous week for the Mavericks, he obviously didn't have much to be positive about.

Not landing Deron Williams has left the Mavericks...

Tyson Chandler ‘feels sorry’ for Dirk Nowitzki

To see what not to do after winning an NBA title, take a look at the Dallas Mavericks. After besting the hated Heat in the 2011 Finals, the Mavs gutted their roster enough to have room to some acquire big-name free agents this summer, presumably Deron Williams and Dwight Howard, while still remaining competitive during the previous season. Fast forward to the present: the Mavs had...

Photo: ESPN First off, ESPN the Magazine’s The Body Issue is just great marketing. That’s my opinion and debate for another day with any dissenters.

The Jet leaves Dallas behind

Jason Terry helped the Dallas Mavericks win their first ever NBA championship. Aside from Dirk Nowitzki (and probably Mark Cuban), he’s been the face of their franchise for the last decade. I wasn’t surprised that Dallas let him go to the Boston Celtics, they’re a team that needs to get younger rather than clinging to the past, but apparently Terry expected more of an effort...
