Carlisle benches Lamar Odom

A terrible year for Lamar Odom got even worse on Friday night, as he was reportedly benched by Rick Carlise who wanted to "look at a different rotation."

Lamar Odom benched in Mavs loss, gets weirdly personal after game

If you thought the one point, one rebound, one assist game (aka the triple single) Lamar Odom had against the Lakers Wednesday was the low point of his basketball season in Dallas, you were wrong. Odom did not play a single minute in the team’s loss to the Spurs Friday. Not one. He was benched and received a “DNP – Coach’s Decision” in the official boxscore. Odom believes...

Aging Mavericks still know how to win

HOUSTON -- The first time I ever saw Shawn Marion, he was sitting in the stands at a place called The Sports Arena in Hutchinson, Kan., and he was signing autographs. He was there to play in the NJCAA Tournament, and I was there to watch. This was 1998, and I was a sophomore in high school, which is to say it was a very long time ago. That isn't relevant, except that 1998...

Practice All-Access: 'Wood & West Work

Big Wood and Delonte West so some work, Roddy B and Dirk engage in a 3-point shootout, Lamar addresses the boos and Rick compares Marion to Artest and Michael Cooper as an NBA Player of the Year candidate ... It's Monday's Practice All-Access:

Mavs outlast state rival Rockets in OT

Dirk Nowitzki scored 31 points, Jason Terry added 24 and Brandan Wright had a career-high seven blocks to help the Dallas Mavericks beat the Houston Rockets 101-99 in overtime Saturday night. Shawn Marion had 12 points and a season-high 15 rebounds for the Mavericks, who beat Houston for the fifth straight time. Goran Dragic scored 24 points and Luis Scola added 19 for the Rockets...

Nowitzki, Terry lift Mavs past Rockets in OT

HOUSTON (AP) -- Dirk Nowitzki scored 31 points, Jason Terry added 24 and Brandan Wright had a career-high seven blocks to help the Dallas Mavericks beat the Houston Rockets 101-99 in overtime Saturday night. Shawn Marion had 12 points and a season-high 15 rebounds for the Mavericks, who beat Houston for the fifth straight time. Goran Dragic scored 24 points, and Luis Scola added...

Lamar Odom and Mark Cuban talk some more after Lamar gets DNP-CD'd

I suppose it's a good thing that Mark Cuban is willing to sit and talk with his players about their feelings all the time. It's also difficult to question the methods of the Dallas Mavericks owner these days too. He's a billionaire CEO that just won and NBA Title, so I'll go ahead and first admit that he knows way more about everything than I do. That doesn't...

Cuban wary about getting pushed into San Antonio's Riverwalk

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban can certainly rile up San Antonio Spurs fans. Throughout the Spurs-Mavs rivalry, Cuban has usually been at the forefront at the rivalry (second to Jason Terry) and it would be an understatement to say Spurs fans do not care for him or his verbal-shots about the Spurs or the city of San Antonio. It wasn't long ago Cuban remarked about San Antonio...

Delonte West Offers Delonte West-like Quotes at Dallas Zoo

Former Cleveland Cavaliers guard and fan favorite Delonte West was the recent subject of a trip to the Dallas zoo.  West, along with teammate Lamar Odom, sat with area students during a 30-minute program in which zoo specialists brought out various animals such as penguins, alligators and a boa constrictor. The highlight, per usual, was the on-the-record discussion with the eccentric...

Rockets edged by Mavs in overtime

HOUSTON (AP) -- Dirk Nowitzki scored 31 points, Jason Terry added 24 and Brandan Wright had a career-high seven blocks to help the Dallas Mavericks beat the Houston Rockets 101-99 in overtime Saturday night. Shawn Marion had 12 points and a season-high 15 rebounds for the Mavericks, who beat Houston for the fifth straight time. Goran Dragic scored 24 points, and Luis Scola added...

Mavericks-Rockets Preview

After winning the NBA title last season, the Dallas Mavericks are struggling to stay in playoff position in the crowded Western Conference. Their next opponent has a vested interest in those woes continuing. The Mavericks will try to avoid their second three-game skid this month when they visit the Houston Rockets in the teams' first meeting this season. Dallas entered the...

Delonte West, animalistic instinct

This story couldn't have come at a better time.  Lamar Odom is struggling to adapt in Dallas and Delonte West comes to the rescue by taking the veteran under his wing and showing him a good time at the zoo.  Just holding penguins, feeding lions and giving birth will humble the most manly of men.  This is what team bonding is all about and a reason why everyone loves Delonte...

Looking back at the Sebastian Telfair, Delonte West trade, and catching up with Bassy

During the 2009-10 season, Sebastian Telfair played four games for the Cleveland Cavaliers. He averaged 10 points and 3 assists per game over the 77 minutes that he played in a Cavs uniform, and then it was over. I'm still glad he came through Cleveland though, for however short a time, because I've always liked Bassy Telfair. Which is why I caught up with him for a few minutes...
