It has the fans divided, not equally though. It’s probably 80/20 minimum or 99 to Asher. Actually make that 98 because my dad is on board.
The Dallas Mavericks were eliminated last night, but they went down giving it every single ounce of fight they had left it the tank.
7 for 33 shooting actually helps explain it.
In the lockout shortened season following the magic that was 2011, Dallas faced the Thunder in Round One and were swept convincingly after a not so convincing start.
To beat Oklahoma City, Dallas has to do two main things: score and rebound.
And it’s all thanks to J.J. Barea.
It’s okay to laugh, we’re outperforming Golden State in April, so laugh a little. It’s good for the ticker.
I’d like to ask ‘where the time went?’ but this season has partly felt like a triathlon in slow motion. Regardless of the massive headache this season has been, the prospect of no more Mavericks basketball on the horizon is not one I’m ready for.
129 Days. That’s how long it’s been since the Dallas Mavericks were under .500.
Might as well get the pathetic, historic feats out of the way.
With the signing of Wesley Matthews, I don’t think any MFFL thought we would miss “Too Much Monta” so, so very, very much. I certainly didn’t. I love Wes Matthews and despite his career-worst season, he brings the energy and passion for the game that Monta did. He brings defense and (supposedly) three point shooting where Ellis did not, but the Mavericks sorely miss the playmaking ability of Monta Ellis.
The task at hand however, is once again the Denver Nuggets.
After a heroic, defiant, #NeverEverQuit 23 point comeback against the 23-win Denver Nuggets Friday night, the Mavericks (31-28) will welcome the very, very talented but very, very bad Minnesota Timberwolves (19-40).
A win is a win and they all count the same, but you can only feel so much when you beat the Philadelphia 76ers.
“That’s probably the most embarrassing game I’ve been a part of on any level.”

Tonight is Star Wars Night at the American Airlines Center! And no, i’m not sure about the timing either.
Same story, different night. Although he didn’t mean story.
Without turning this game preview into one of my stunning high school essays for history class, it simply must be mentioned, in the very least, the impact of the man who “Had a Dream” and stood for what was right in a world that gets just about everything wrong.
