When Mark Cuban noticed New Orleans-based photographer Gus Escanelle snapping shots of him before the Mavericks game in NOLA Thursday night I guess he decided to mess with him, or he just ate a extremely sour lemon, or maybe he was playing Pictionary and the clue was Jerry… Continue

You wouldn’t really call it a cheat sheet or even a crib note. Semantically, that doesn’t sit well with many people these days. It’s more like an internet playbook for all the places on the web that are dedicated to covering the Dallas Mavericks. The following information actually wouldn’t be enough to fill a three-ring binder. Naturally, your friends would think you were weird if you taped it to your wrist like a football quarterback. So maybe… Continue

One fall day 9 years ago the Dallas Mavericks held a "TeamUp" day to renovate an old house. The players converted the old house into a community center. This picture was taken with a Sony Mavica digital camera. The camera recorded the image to a 3.5 floppy disk. Remember those days?

Your grandfather is a pretty famous basketball coach in your home state. Did you have any choice but to become a basketball player?
Yes, he was a basketball player too but he was mostly known as a basketball coach. He coached basketball for 51 years at North Catholic High School in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. But the answer to the question is yes, and no. I had a choice, but it was one of those things that when you grow up in and… Continue

Tiger Woods sat courtside at the Magic versus Mavericks game in Orlando on Monday night.
Before the game Mark Cuban and Woods met for the first time at Tiger's courtside seats.
The cordial pre-game chat revolved mostly around their mutual friend Michael Jordan.
After the chat, pre-game optimism/hope/doubt of both men made way to the clarity of Cuban's Mavericks throttling Tiger's Magic.
No word on… Continue

The Dallas Mavericks had their usual game day shoot around this morning at 11:00 am.
Today is the first time that I had returned to the scene of the spring 2006 crime. I didn’t travel with the team last season to Miami.
Today, was the first time that I was forced to remember the many snippets of the ESPN Sportcenter located on my mental DVR. The mental imagery of the unimaginable comeback of the Miami Heat over the Dallas… Continue

You scored on a dunk on the first possession that you played for the Dallas Mavericks. Were you surprised that they called a play for you on your first possession right off the bench?
Yeah, the first play was Jet dropping it to me and I just dunked it. When I got the ball I was wide open, so I just hammered it down. The call was a high pick-and-roll. It was just a read really. It was right when I got into the game. It surprised me… Continue
