Monta Ellis had it all… An agent, eleven million dollars, an extension offer, a moped…

A three-year $36 million extension with Milwaukee has become three for $29 with Dallas two weeks later. As Keanu would say, “Whoa.”

I haven’t seen one episode and I probably won’t ever see one.
— Dirk Nowitzki, re: “freaking Shark Tank,” the show Mark Cuban filmed instead of recruiting Deron Williams to Dallas.

The Mavericks like Baauer.

Things have gotten so bad for the Mavericks that Dirk Nowitzki is channeling Kevin McHale’s sweaty armpit victory pose. Your pits are going to have to get a lot hairier and stinkier if you want to impress the basketball gods, Dirk.

Can’t guarantee he’ll ever say anything of interest —yeah, right— but let’s all give the Mavs owner, Mark Cuban, a warm welcome to Tumblr, as well as a follow, shall we?

Candy stores in the greater Los Angeles area, this is your lucky day! Candy enthusiast and former Sixth Man of the Year Lamar Odom is returning to the Los Angeles Clippers, in a four-team trade that will send Mo Williams to the Utah Jazz. In return, Dallas gets a trade exception (from Utah’s Mehmet Okur trade), while Houston gets a second-round pick from Utah, and sends cash to the Mavs.
Why was Houston involved at all? Because Daryl Morey is more addicted to trades than Odom is to Skittles.

Herzlichen Glückwunsch zum Geburtstag to Dirk Nowitzki, who is turning 34 today. Dirk is still a reigning NBA champion for a few more days, and should have almost finished that $80,000 bottle of champagne by now. He’s definitely out partying somewhere today, and we can only hope he’s still wearing that hat.

NBA Playoffs Throwback: Dallas Mavericks vs. Oklahoma City Thunder, 2011 Western Conference finals, Game 4

The rematch, Game 1, starts on Saturday at 9:30pm EST on ESPN!

High School

The Dallas Mavericks will stuff you inside a locker.

ESPN is reporting that the Lamar Odom experiment is over in Dallas. The two parties have reached an agreement that will send Odom on his way and the Mavericks will simply list him as inactive on the roster. 
Odom said: 

"I’m sorry that things didn’t work out better for both of us, but I wish the Mavs’ organization, my teammates and Dallas fans nothing but continued success in the defense of their championship."

Lamar Odom is a special and unique snowflake who requires a certain level of treatment and care. The kind of care that any normal basketball coach is not going to give; only the Phil Jackson kind of care. Here’s to hoping that Odom is able to clear his head and find the basketball way, again.
