Rick Carlisle Gets The Business From Rajon Rondo, Reporter

Dallas Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle did not have the best day at the office yesterday. His team came away with a 99-92 victory over the Toronto Raptors, which was good, but he also got into a shouting match with starting point guard Rajon Rondo in the middle of the game, which was very bad.

Steph Curry Has A Steph Curry Game

If you thought anything at all like "this Warriors-Mavericks game tonight isn't worth staying up late for," you should immediately smack yourself in the head. Hard.

This Looks Like The Year The Celtics Finally Trade Rajon Rondo

Swapping Rajon Rondo trade rumors is America's oldest and most treasured holiday tradition. But this year, the Celtics' last chance to get something for their star point guard, it seems like it's actually going to happen.

Monta Ellis's Game-Winning Buzzer-Beater Was Bananas

I think it's time to admit that there probably isn't another player in the NBA who is better at hitting reckless, off-balance buzzer-beaters than Monta Ellis. Almost two years after hitting a game-winner so absurd that Ellis himself had to flee from it, the Mavericks shooting guard once again did his thing against the… » 12/04/14 10:24am 12/04/14 10:24am

With 23 points last night, Dirk Nowitzki moved into ninth place on the NBA all-time scoring list. He passed Rockets legend Hakeem Olajuwon, meaning that Nowitzki has now scored more points in the NBA than any other foreign-born player. » 11/12/14 12:35pm 11/12/14 12:35pm

Anthony Davis Is A Goddamn Demon

Anthony Davis is going to own the league sooner rather than later, because Anthony Davis is a shot-devouring, rebound-snatching, dunking monster who is now armed with a solid mid-range jumper and respectable handles. Dunks and smooth jumpers and blocks are great, but if you really want to see what makes Anthony Davis… » 11/03/14 5:32pm 11/03/14 5:32pm

Rick Carlisle's Sorry He Suggested That Chandler Parsons Is Fat

Mark Cuban Suggests An NBA World Cup

A Good Offer Sheet Leaves Everyone Pissed Off

Of the three interested parties, no one really expected Chandler Parsons to be a Dallas Maverick, and I'm not convinced anyone, even the Mavs, wanted it to happen. But after everything clicked into place in the convoluted clockwork of NBA free agency, the Rockets declined to shell out $15 million a year for the… » 7/15/14 9:29am 7/15/14 9:29am
