Found April 20, 2012 on Just Sports And Just Us:

Remember last season when Denver Nuggets head coach George Karl said that he hoped that his team would face the Dallas Mavericks when the playoffs started. Of course he was wrong because the Mavs went on a roll and wound up toppling the Miami Heat for the NBA championship.

The Mavericks have struggled in the shortened season and finally clinched a playoff berth, but they still remain dangerous. Mavericks guard Jason Terry thinks teams are feasting their eyes on the Mavericks as a possible playoff opponent, but issues a warning to those that think the Mavericks will be cannon fodder when the playoffs begin.

"We haven't gotten much respect all year long," Jason Terry said. "It doesn't surprise me. I think a lot of teams are hoping and wishing they can play the Mavericks, similar to last year _ and they get what they ask for sometimes."

Translation: Teams are overlooking us and think they're getting a weak opponent. Be careful what you wish for because you just might get it. Remember we're still the champions.

Teams still should be wary of the Mavericks, especially if Dirk Nowitzki gets hot and the rest of the team follows suit. When the Mavericks get rolling they're hard to beat.

  • What whiners. Their Rodney Dangerfield routine has gotten old. You got your trophy and your rings. Nobody cares about Dallas except Dallas. Go away. Yeeeesh.
  • They don't respect the lakers or Boston either. So what Jason!

Mavericks Secure A Spot In The Playoffs

The Dallas Mavericks clinched a playoff spot for the 12th consecutive year on Thursday night by virtue of the Houston Rocket’s loss in New Orleans to the lowly Hornets. While seeding hasn’t yet been decided, qualifying for the playoffs this season has been nothing short of a chore for the Mavs. That may be acceptable for most teams in the league, but it’s not exactly how the...

Cuban: NBA's Olympic give-away 'stupid'

Mark Cuban comes off as an unpatriotic, unapologetic, typical money-first, damn-the-flag, ugly-American businessman. But listen closer. Deeper. Does he think the U.S. Olympic basketball team is a shambles? "I hope so,'' the Dallas Mavericks owner told "Maybe that'll be my next business. F--- up the Olympics.'' Here we go again with...

Mavericks 104, Warriors 94

Vince Carter had 19 points, including eight straight for Dallas early in the fourth quarter, and the playoff-bound Mavericks finally pulled away from the young Golden State Warriors for a 104-94 victory Friday night.

Plenty Of Uncertainty In Mavs Locker Room

There isn’t much time for the Dallas Mavericks to get on track this regular season. The goal is obviously to find some momentum and consistency before the playoffs hit, but this season is different in Dallas as the postseason isn’t yet assured with just a few games remaining.

Triple Overtime Not Good For The Dallas Mavericks As They Lose To The Utah Jazz

Can I officially state that I hate overtime games for the Dallas Mavericks? It doesn’t bode well for them and now they have two overtime games back to back and this one was a triple overtime and still didn’t get the win. Dallas came into tonight’s game in the #6 spot while Utah was hanging by a thread and hoping for some help in a win against Dallas and losses against teams...

Suns fall to ninth with loss to Nuggets

Now that the Denver Nuggets are in the playoffs for the ninth consecutive season, there will be no letting up for the final three games of the regular season. Coach George Karl wants his young team to gain some momentum, and there's still a chance to pass Dallas for the No. 6 spot in the Western Conference. Ty Lawson went 5 of 5 on three-pointers and had 29 points and 10 assists...
