'No-nonsense' Jameer Nelson has message for those expecting more PG turnover

From 2008 through their championship season and on into 2012, the Mavericks had one starting point guard. It was Jason Kidd’s show. Since then, they’ve had three new starters at the point in three seasons. It’ll be Jameer Nelson when the regular season begins next week. He’s following Jose Calderon and Darren Collison as the opening-day starters the previous two seasons...

Barring injury, Mavericks' starting lineup is set for season opener at San Antonio

For the first three quarters of Monday’s exhibition game against Memphis, the Mavericks showed some true colors. They might not always play that well — they were up 91-75 going into the fourth quarter and up to then, the Grizzlies had played mostly heavy lifters as well. But with the exception of Jae Crowder, who sat until playing the entire fourth quarter, the Mavericks...

Chandler Parsons motivated to prove his worth

The Dallas Mavericks signed small forward Chandler Parsons this past offseason, and believe that he will be the missing piece that helps take them to the next level. They believe that they are truly championship contenders now with Dirk Nowitzki leading the way once again.

Chandler Parsons: I want to prove I'm worth $46 million deal

Chandler Parsons embraces the challenge of proving the Dallas Mavericks didn’t overpay for him. The Mavs certainly paid a premium rate for a player who has never been an All-Star, signing Parsons to a three-year, $46 million deal that is close to a maximum contract for a four-year veteran. That was the price of poker for the Mavs, who had the luxury of bidding high for Parsons...

2014-15 NBA Preview: Dallas Mavericks

Dallas has rarely missed the playoffs in the Dirk-era, but they’ll have another tough fight on their hands. Dallas should be in the mix for one of the lower seeds and the fight is so close that one wrong move or one injury at the wrong time could knock them out. They’re bringing in a couple of big names, the Chandler guys, but with the pieces they’re losing like Vince Carter’s...

Nowitzki-Chandler reunion, Parsons give Mavs hope

DALLAS (AP) Dirk Nowitzki welcomed Tyson Chandler to Dallas with little fanfare four years ago, and certainly not amid talk of potential championships. Now that they're reunited after leading the Mavericks to their only title in 2011, it's a hard for the team not to be a little giddy, even in the face of the Texas dynasty that is the San Antonio Spurs and a potent Western...

Memphis Grizzlies Fall To Dallas Mavs, 108-103

Chandler Parsons replaced Vince Carter on the Mavs team. I’m okay with that, especially since Vince gets his No. 15 jersey back on Beale St. Oh how the ball bounces. When last these two teams tangled, they were playing in a round robin of sorts with the Phoenix Suns rounding out the three teams fighting for the last two playoff spots. Had the ball bounced differently, it would...

Start your day off with this picture of Michael Beasley, Delonte West, and Yao Ming straight chillin

With SO much in common, it's hard to even guess what these guys were talking about. But if I were to guess, it's this; 'how does Yao Ming keep his dress-game so casual when he's 7 foot 6.' Also, 'Are those actually capris or did Yao Ming just buy pants that were intended for a fat guy?'
