Dallas Mavericks: Was Rondo worth it?

I’m sure most NBA fans were in awe when they heard about Rondo going to the Mavericks. A former champion point-guard who is young, talented, and motivational sounds wonderful. But did he really give any returns to the Dallas Mavericks this season? I mean after he joined, the Mavericks suffered much more losses, became filled with drama, and declined altogether. In the end, look...

Will Dallas stick with Aminu?

Al-Farouq Aminu is a free agent coming off the type of season all free agents want to have. He exceeded his current pay grade, turning into a solid energy player off the bench who can crash the glass, defend multiple positions and make timely cuts to the rim.He's not a star, despite entering the league as a high lottery pick, but Aminu is useful, and some team may be willing to pay...

Mavericks Sell Socks with Picture of Mark Cuban Standing at a Urinal

After the Dallas Mavericks’ NBA title in 2011, owner Mark Cuban infamously hung on to the Larry O’Brien Trophy while making a trip to the men’s urinal after the game. We can now all relive that precious moment by wearing these really awkward-looking socks. Is the term “rock-em” at the bottom of the socks really the right wording, though?

Point Guard Application for the Dallas Mavericks

Something occurred to me midway through the fourth quarter of last night’s Mavericks-Rockets game, right around one of Raymond Felton’s missed layups. The Dallas Mavericks are dangerously undermanned at point guard; so much so that when I say I realized this on a Raymond Felton missed layup you actually have to ask which one. The Dallas Mavericks are also a billion-dollar franchise...
