The Dallas Mavericks may be ushering in a new era of small ball, whether they want to or not.Although the Mavericks acquired centers Zaza Pachulia, JaVale McGee and Samuel Dalembert, most of the offensive production will come from the perimeter.

The Dallas Mavericks do what they can this offseason

The Dallas Mavericks over the last couple of weeks have become a little older. Hopefully, some wisdom can be added as well. On paper, the starting lineup looks promising. They signed a couple of players in their 30s who are more than capable of playing at a mediocre level, but have seen better days. New acquisitions in point guard Deron Williams and center Samuel Dalembert have been...

Dalembert, who last played for the Mavs during the 2013-2014 season, was traded by the Mavs to the Knicks last summer as...

Knicks problems more personnel than system

Carmelo Anthony can do only so much. His 3-pointer late in the fourth quarter of Friday’s loss to the Jazz was essential Carmelo Anthony. It was him just taking the ball, lifting up and draining the shot. Nothing more, nothing less. That might be the ideal Anthony offense. He is the ultimate one-on-one player and can create his own shot from anything. There was minor controversy...

The Knicks will likely struggle again to make the playoffs this season. There arguably wasn’t a single team in the NBA that had a more disappointing season last year than the New York Knicks.

Those of us expecting some big trades to go down were also disappointed.  There was really only one trade...
