Photo by Ron Jenkins/Getty Images The Mavericks’ star has been ethereal this season. Does he have a case to win the MVP award? Luka Doncic has been otherworldly this season and the Mavericks’ success has hinged on his production. Dallas is sitting at 32-23 on the season, despite the major inconsistencies in lineups from injuries. In these 55 games, Doncic has appeared in 47 of them, averaging the most points since James Harden’s 34.3 points per game in 2020. The closer we get to the end of the season, the more MVP talks have ramped up. Doncic has been in MVP discussions annually since his soph ..read more

Photo by Sam Hodde/Getty Images When he’s hot he’s hot, but when he’s not, there needs to be a short leash Tim Hardaway Jr. has been a polarizing player since arriving in Dallas five years ago. While his hot shooting can propel the Mavericks offense to new heights, his poor defense and decision-making can put them behind the eight ball. Since the trade back in 2019, the Mavericks have been talent-deficient, and have had to play Hardaway nearly 30 minutes a night during his tenure here. Now that the talent bucket has been filled after the Mavericks big trade deadline, Hardaway’s minutes and lin ..read more

Kill it, if you have to The NBA’s latest All-Star weekend just wrapped up after an All-Star game Sunday night that set the record for most combined points, including one team breaking the 200-point barrier, and by far the prevailing thought coming out of this has been a resounding “it stinks.” What is there to do? The NBA has to fix this right? That’s what most prominent NBA media people are saying and writing this morning. The Athletic published two pieces this morning, one from Sam Amick, and one from David Aldridge, about the farce the ga ..read more

Photo by Garrett Ellwood/NBAE via Getty Images All-Star Saturday night isn’t what it used to be, but it can still be profitable I’m paraphrasing, but Artie Lange once said “watching sports is boring, but if you have $500 in your checking account and bet $1,000 on a game, it’ll be the most exciting game of your life”. Adrenaline junkies come in different shapes and sizes. Some of us climb mountains without a harness. Others jump out of airplanes or perform their own stunts in Mission Impossible movies. I, and those of you reading this, scratch the itch by betting on All-Star Saturday Night even ..read more

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports Dallas fans are happy. They should be. Earlier in the week, we put out a survey asking fans to answer some questions about the Dallas Mavericks and the trade deadline. For the Mavericks fans portion, all results were pretty definitive. The first question was simple: did the Mavericks improve at the trade deadline? 99% is pretty hilarious. I’ve never seen one of our surveys get more than 70% for a given answer. This is one I absolutely agree with. The next question had to do with whether or not fans were concerned about the future draft capital the Mavericks gave ..read more

Photo by Sam Hodde/Getty Images Dallas superstar Luka Dončić’s next contract comes sooner than you might think. Here are the variations of what the Mavericks can offer. The future of Luka Doncic is of utmost importance to the Mavericks. They have no control over how high their draft pick might land in 4 straight drafts except for very limited protection in one of the years. But what they do have control of is the ability to offer Luka Doncic his next contract, either as an extension in July 2025 that would start in the 2026-27 season or as a contract when he opts out of his player option for 2 ..read more
