Dallas Mavericks are on the verge of elimination

Injuries have certainly been an issue, but the Houston Rockets team they are currently down 3-0 to is a phenomenal squad. They are generating offensive power at a rate which is somewhat equivalent...

Mavericks have one last gasp after Carlisle removes Rondo

Hit us up on Twitter @CrossoverNBA People discount locker room chemistry, or at least the power of non-terrible locker room chemistry. You don’t need to like, be friends with, or align with everyone in a locker room … but when one guy is the lynchpin for bringing down the whole joint, it becomes fatal. Obviously, this is about Rajon Rondo and the Dallas Mavs. The Mavs have...

Mavericks Sell Socks with Picture of Mark Cuban Standing at a Urinal

After the Dallas Mavericks’ NBA title in 2011, owner Mark Cuban infamously hung on to the Larry O’Brien Trophy while making a trip to the men’s urinal after the game. We can now all relive that precious moment by wearing these really awkward-looking socks. Is the term “rock-em” at the bottom of the socks really the right wording, though?

Report: Mavericks will target Aldridge this summer

The Dallas Mavericks are in a tailspin. They won't have Chandler Parsons for the rest of the postseason, and Rajon Rondo's tenure just exploded in their face. But free agency is just on the horizon, and with it could come one of the best 15 basketball players on the planet. The Mavericks will have plenty of cap space this summer if they renounce several of their pending free agents...

Point Guard Application for the Dallas Mavericks

Something occurred to me midway through the fourth quarter of last night’s Mavericks-Rockets game, right around one of Raymond Felton’s missed layups. The Dallas Mavericks are dangerously undermanned at point guard; so much so that when I say I realized this on a Raymond Felton missed layup you actually have to ask which one. The Dallas Mavericks are also a billion-dollar franchise...
