Delonte West didn't sleep with Lebron's mom and was homeless in Dallas

Life for NBA player Delonte West has been rough for the past couple months since he joined the Dallas Mavericks due to numerous court hearings and financial issues. It got so low for Delonte that when he first joined the Mavericks, he didn't have a place to stay and essentially was sleeping in either the Mavericks locker room or his truck: He said he tried to rent apartments...

Lamar Odom Eyeing Boston If Buyout Is Reached

Rumors are swirling across the NBA that former Laker 6th Man, and current Dallas Mavericks forward, Lamar Odom is attempting to get bought out from Dallas. Odom was not happy when he was initially sent to Dallas and has been struggling all season, seemingly out of shape from the lockout, but just a season ago [...]

Nowitzki leaves Mavs game with tight lower back

Dirk Nowitzki has left the Dallas Mavericks' game against Memphis with lower back tightness. His return was questionable. Nowitzki appeared slow throughout the first quarter Wednesday night, laboring down the floor and not playing defense effectively. He came back in for a short time in the opening minutes of the second period, but left after scoring only one point and missing...

Lamar Odom isn't with his Mavericks team right now

In the Lamar Odom to Dallas deal at the start of this lockout shortened season, there are no winners. The Lakers haven't been able to fill the void left by the vacated 6th Man of the Year type numbers that Odom produced a season ago, and Dallas hasn't gotten anything from him this season either. Total bust, all around basically, unless you're cool with the 7 points and...

He's averaging a career-low 5.1 points ger game."My goal was to get to 20 years, but if I can't compete and help a team or help develop a younger point guard then...

Dirk Nowitzki Out of Action With Lower Back Pain

The Dallas Mavericks don’t know how long they’ll be without Dirk’s services after last night’s injury in Memphis. From the Star-Telegram: “Two games into their nine-games-in-12-days journey across the United States, the Mavs are already down 0-2. One night after losing at home to the lowly New Jersey Nets, the Mavs flew into Memphis and got whacked upside the head by the...


By Joe Gilmartin Posted: April 19, 2001 Once upon a time Jason Kidd was a very good point guard. In fact, there were those who said he was the best point guard on the planet. But that was then and this is now. And now he's even better. Then, the only hole in his otherwise awesome game (actually more of a nit-pick than a hole) was that he wasn't a good shooter, didn'...

Marion Best Deal Suns Never Made

By Mike Tulumello East Valley Tribune Nov. 24, 2004 If it's true that the best deals sometimes are the ones that never are made, then the Suns seem to have made a great one this past summer: They didn't trade Shawn Marion. Not only has Marion been a key to the Suns' defense — for example, he pretty much single-handedly shut down Dirk Nowitzki of Dallas last week...

Mavericks-Grizzlies Preview

The Dallas Mavericks couldn't get their offense in gear as they stumbled in their first game following the All-Star break. Heading to Memphis might not be the best place for the defending NBA champs to try to fix that. Dallas continues a busy stretch of its schedule Wednesday night when the surging Grizzlies open the second half eyeing a season-high fifth straight home win...
