Barring some sort of Deron Williams/Dwight Howard free agency/trade miracle, Jostens probably won’t be whipping up another batch of Dallas Mavericks Championship rings any time soon. Still, it’s interesting to observe the creativity that went into designing the ring, and then the actual creation process itself. You can skip to the 1:30 mark of the video embedded above (via DimeMag.com) to do just that.
Note that each ring includes 257 diamonds. Bling Bling. Also note that Jason Kidd pretty much called the shots. Mark Cuban wasn’t trying to get smacked up.

"Loyalty" isn't exactly the word that comes to mind when you think of Dwight Howard's relationship with the Orlando Magic. But, hey, whatever sells t-shirts.
The tambourines on “I And Love And You” have never sounded so sweet as they did this weekend when everyone’s favorite German 7-footer stood in with the Avetts. Should we even be surprised Dirk is an Avetts fan? Um, of course not. Biggest panty dropping tour of the summer. Chicks just ripping off clothes at the sound of a banjo. Shaking their asses to the stand-up bass. Cheerleaders...
Nothing says rhythm and sex appeal like a 7 foot German playing the tambourine.

We know the Mark Cuban Mavs will spend money for a center. We also know that Mavs centers, once paid, tend toward a lessened production even as they add up to 12 straight playoff seasons and two Finals berths. A Brief History of 'Overpaying' Centers, the year the collecting trend because obvious, and what it means for Indiana's Roy Hibbert ... in Tuesday Mavs Donuts!
Let’s do a quick recap, shall we?
In the past couple of months, here’s how loyal Dwight Howard has been:
- He demanded that Stan Van Gundy be fired
- He waived his opt-out clause only because he didn’t want to be traded to the Lakers
- He sat out the playoffs because he no longer wanted to play for Stan Van Gundy
- He has plans to ask for a trade in the offseason
- He singlehandedly...
Those NBA players whose team is already fishing, the off-season is a great time to undwind….to relax….to do the things in life you really care about. Take Dallas Mavericks’ Ian Mahinimi for instance: You have heard of the old saying, “The family that goes to the Medieval Times together, stays together,” right? H/T I [...]
Magic fans have not heard from Dwight Howard in a while. He has been rehabbing in Los Angeles after back surgery in April and by all accounts -- usually a stray comment from Alex Martins or a sidewalk interview with TMZ -- Howard's recovery is going fine.
There are even some rumors that Howard is going to be making his way back to Orlando soon. Who really knows, though?
The Magic are quickly hurtling toward a flashpoint in their franchise's history as the Dwight Howard saga will get a final resolution this offseason. That is what team President Alex Martins has alluded to since the Magic's elimination from the postseason, vowing the team would not go through the ordeal and turmoil it went through in 2012.
He fired Stan Van Gundy and Otis...
