Deron Williams a Fit for the Mavs?

Deron Williams a Fit for the Mavs?

  Nets could buyout PG Deron Williams. If the becomes the case, look for the Mavs to explore the option of adding Williams to their backcourt. You may remember the name Deron Williams. I mean how could you forget? It was just a few short summers ago that Williams chose to re-sign with the Brooklyn Nets over…

A Blueprint For Success?

A Blueprint For Success?

    In the 1998 NBA Draft, the Dallas Mavericks found a way to snag Dirk Nowitzki in a trade with the Milwaukee Bucks. They paired up the lengthy German with Steve Nash and Michael Finley.  They went only 19-31 in a strike shortened season, and failed to make the playoffs the following year, going…

Getting To Know The Other Carlisle….Dick Carlisle

When you’re guy like me who lives outside the Texas borders, Twitter is the best option to interact with MFFLs across the country. I’ve been fortunate enough to meet some cool Mavs fans since having a Twitter account during games. One particular fan that comes to mind is @DickCarlisle. If you have never heard of…

Mavs Game Night: Deron in Dallas with His Brooklyn Nets

Mavs Game Night: Deron in Dallas with His Brooklyn Nets

As spring nears its way it means the summer will follow soon after. A summer ago the Dallas Mavericks played some baseball and unfortunately they struck out when it was their turn to bat. The Mavericks opted for cap room in 2011 rather than bringing back an aging group which won the franchise’s lone championship….

Mavericks Blueprint Changing?

Mavericks Blueprint Changing?

The long-range plan is to keep the powder dry and wait out a superstar. It’s why when Deron Williams chose Brooklyn over Dallas, Mark Cuban and Donnie Nelson didn’t get in a bidding war for a player such as Goran Dragic but rather targeted players either on the last year of their current deals or who were open to…

NBA Releases Schedule: 5 Games To Circle

Perhaps not since the 2003-04 season when Mark Cuban brought in Antawn Jamison and Antoine Walker have the Dallas Mavericks been a bigger mystery than they are entering the 2012-13 season. With the roster now appearing to be finalized — barring any trades before the start of training camp in late September — the re-tooled Mavs now know who and when they’ll play…

Cuban Has Mavs Set Up For Future Run

Cuban Has Mavs Set Up For Future Run

Hours before the Dallas Mavericks‘ title defense fizzled in a first-round sweep, a first in Mark Cuban’s dozen seasons, the outspoken and out-of-the-box owner of the dismantled champions chastised sports writers, demanding the know-it-alls digest the new collective bargaining agreement before questioning his suddenly scaled-back spending approach to team building. For the many fans who didn’t…

2012 Mavs Summer: Like Sitting In A Dentist's Chair

2012 Mavs Summer: Like Sitting In A Dentist's Chair

    Ever had a good trip to the dentist? Did you wake up and say, “Yes, I have a dentist appointment today.”? Well, I woke up this morning to the pleasure of knowing that was exactly what I had in store. Except, I thought I could channel this horrible hour into analyzing what all…

The Summer That Wasn't

The Summer That Wasn't

It’s the summer of 2011; all is good in Mavs land.  The pending Tyson Chandler free agency is far from our minds.  We’re happy and Mark Cuban is the greatest owner in sports. Fast Forward up to Christmas Day, 2011; Tyson Chandler, Barrea, Caron, and Deshawn are gone. Rangers lose World Series, Cowboys on their…

Kidd: Deron Williams Was Close To Joining Mavs

Jason Kidd had hopes of finishing his career with friend Deron Williams, and on Wednesday, he said the free-agent point guard duo was closer than some might realize to being Dallas-bound. “Hopefully he comes out and tells his story of how he did it and how he decided, but I thought he was very close to going…
