MAVERICKS RUMORS & GOSSIP
Mark Cuban publicly stated he is irked about the officiating treatment of Monta Ellis, who is doubtful for the Dallas Mavericks' game against the Indiana Pacers on Sunday due to a calf injury.
"I'm not allowed to say how many and what, but we literally have a play list of all the calls of Monta getting smacked and no call," Cuban said. "It's crazy. It's crazy. It's always the same...
Chandler Parsons of the Dallas Mavericks had a little fun on Friday night at the expense of Tim Duncan. Check out the young man dunking all over Timmy with no regard for the old man’s feelings. The big one-handed dunk by Parsons came early in the first quarter of the Mavs match-up with the streaking

The second half of the season has been nothing short of a disaster for the Toronto Raptors. Their star point guard, Kyle Lowry, has been battling injury after injury, and is currently out again, this time with back spasms. They’re losing games to lesser opponents. They’ve gone from a title contender to Shaqtin’ a Fool champions.
Amar'e Stoudemire believes he has several seasons left in him at the age of 32.
Stoudemire's Phoenix Suns' teammates, Steve Nash and Shawn Marion, are in their final NBA seasons.
“I’m the last man standing,” Stoudemire said with a smile. “I plan on standing for a while, by the way.
“No, no, there’s no way. There’s a lot of youth in these legs. I have a lot of competitive...
Dirk Nowitzki has been in the NBA for sixteen seasons, and quite honestly it looks like he has a few years left in the tank. Nowitzki is in a fight that many athletes have failed to win, and that is the bout with father time. Father time in the world of sports is similar to the movie Space Jam where the Monstars took the skills and powers from the best athlete’s that the game of...
The only positive I can point out for the Mavericks at this point is that Dirk has found his groove again. During their three game win streak he averaged 20.3 points per game on 52.4% shooting. Nowitzki has had his fair share of problems this year, between his age and ailing elbow, but he is not done just yet. However, it seems the countless other struggles that the Dallas Mavericks...
Steve Nash announced his retirement over the weekend, and former teammate Dirk Nowitzki recently weighed in about it.
He and Nash played for the Mavericks and spent six seasons together. The two were a formidable duo and had great chemistry together. Had the Mavericks not let Nash test the free-agent market and depart for Phoenix in 2004—which Mark Cuban said was his “biggest...
It’s no secret that Dirk Nowitzki and Steve Nash share a deep and meaningful friendship. The two basketball greats both joined the Dallas Mavericks in 1998 and they’ve been close ever since. So, when Nash announced his retirement over the weekend, we all should have known that it would be Dirk who would have the

Dallas Mavericks guard Monta Ellis scored just 11 points – going 4-for-22 from the field – in a 98-92 loss to the Phoenix Suns. He went 0-for-8 in the fourth quarter and wouldn’t talk to reporters after the game.
Since the start of February, Ellis is shooting 38.5 percent from the field and 25 percent from the 3-point line.
When Rajon Rondo and Dallas Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle got into a heated shouting match during a game last month, it appeared inevitable that Rondo would become a problem in the locker room. The more we learn, the more it seems like Monta Ellis is the real concern. Ellis finished with 11 points on just...Read More
Dallas Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle was not pleased with his team’s effort in a loss to the Phoenix Suns on Sunday. With the Mavs clinging to the No. 7 seed in the Western Conference, Carlisle felt it was “an embarrassment” that the Suns led by 15 at the half. “This is a Dallas Mavericks hard-play...Read More
DALLAS -- Amare Stoudemire has been fined $15,000 by the NBA for verbally abusing an official and not leaving the court in a timely manner after he was ejected from the Dallas Mavericks' last game.
The NBA announced the fine Saturday, a day after Stoudemire's automatic ejection for getting two technical fouls in the Mavericks' 112-101 home loss to Memphis.
Midway through the third...

Raymond Felton is an overweight 3rd-string point guard in the NBA. 10 years ago, he was the best guard in the land for the champion North Carolina Tar Heels.

Just a few short weeks ago, it appeared that Rajon Rondo’s stay with the Dallas Mavericks was all but certain to be a very brief one. Rondo, who is a free agent after the season, was suspended for a game following a heated exchange with head coach Rick Carlisle. But now, it seems the two...Read More
Because the regular season is way too long, because the West is beyond every basketball fan’s wildest dreams, because the Mark Cuban/Rick Carlisle/Dirk Nowitzki train has been chugging along longer than any organizational foundation outside of San Antonio and because Rajon Rondo attracts blame like super models attract teenage boys. These are among the many reasons the collective...
Not many NBA players can boast that they’ve ever been able to knock down Dirk Nowitzki. The seven-footer is athletic and also has great balance for someone that tall.
But Clippers forward Glen “Big Baby” Davis is pretty big as well. He’s 6’9″ and weighs 289 pounds. When he comes running at full speed, most players would probably be best suited by just getting out of...
Dallas Mavericks big man Amar’e Stoudemire laid into his new teammates following a blowout trouncing at the hands of the Cleveland Cavaliers, saying about his relocation to North Texas, “I came here to win.” While Stoudemire’s passion and competitiveness should be commended in the wake of devastating loss — especially from a relative newcomer —...Read More

It looks as though everything that happened between Rajon Rondo and Rick Carlisle is in the past.
The Dallas Mavericks guard opened up to Yahoo! Sports’ Marc Spears on Saturday and said that everything is A-OK with him and his head coach after a heated argument between the two back in February led to a one-game suspension for Rondo.
“The situation happened...

On May 13, 2010, Rajon Rondo scored 21 points on 60 percent shooting to go along with 12 assists, five steals, and three rebounds. At that point, such a line was relatively pedestrian by Rondo’s standards. After all, for the series in question, he averaged 20.7 points, 11.8 assists, 6.3 rebounds, and 1.8 steals. His team needed that level of production. After all, they were heavy...
Oh, this is because of the Shark Tank thing, right? We get it.
Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, also a “shark” investor on the hit ABC show, has been cast as the President of the United States in Syfy’s Sharknado 3. While you try to comprehend that, also consider that conservative pundit Ann Coulter will be playing his vice president. Hopefully, we see those two in a situation...
