At some point in the next few weeks, the Dallas Mavericks will welcome Dirk Nowitzki back to the lineup. But against all odds, they're doing just fine without him. In past seasons the Mavs have looked lost without their superstar. But with a surprising 4-1 start, they appear to be flourishing. And with each passing day, the degree of difficulty seems to rise. Already missing Nowitzki, Shawn Marion and reserve guard Roddy Beaubois, the Mavs were without Elton Brand who was with his wife for the birth of their baby girl. Marion's the best all-around player on the team in Nowitzki's absence and Brand's by far the most physical. But not missing a beat, O.J. Mayo and Chris Kaman combined for 44 points in leading the Mavs to a 109-104 win. To be fair, the Raptors were playing their fourth game in five nights, and they didn't have star point guard Kyle Lowry. But they should've had enough firepower to pose a legitimate threat to the Mavs. Instead, Dallas held th...

Dirk Nowitzki rocks out to “Born in the USA”

As far as in-arena entertainment, The Dallas Mavericks consistently provide highly amusing bits to occupy their crowd during timeouts and lulls in the action. Earlier we showcased their parody of the new dance craze, “Gangnam Style,” we’ve also seen them create versions of popular songs like Kanye West’s “Power”. Up next, “Mavs Playeraoke.” This involves [...]

Mavericks All-World forward Dirk Nowitzki jammed to some Bruce Springsteen to pass the time as he recovers from knee surgery he had a couple weeks ago. Nowitzki, born in Wurzburg, Germany, showed his appreciation for the stars and bars by destroying “Born in the U.S.A.” His performance fails the smell test, but his passion reigns supreme. We need more Dirk.

Raptors-Mavericks Preview

The Dallas Mavericks suffered a big blow when they lost 11-time All-Star Dirk Nowitzki to knee surgery. O.J. Mayo's play of late has made Nowitzki's absence a little easier to withstand. Having scored 30 or more points in consecutive games, Mayo will try to keep that streak going Wednesday night against the visiting Toronto Raptors. The Mavericks (3-1) signed Mayo with...

And it’s just as bad as you thought it would be. It should be illegal for any man who WASN’T born in the USA to sing this song, but especially super-illegal for a goofy seven-foot tall man who was born in Germany. The Boss deserves better. Article found on: Cosby Sweaters
