    Dirk Nowitzki Stars In Mavericks Geico Ad Parody (Video)

    You’ve seen the ad: an obnoxious camel bothers each one of its coworkers about the fact that it’s “Hump Day” in the office. It’s a typically funny Geico advertisement, and one that was apparently thought to be ripe for parody by Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks. The premise of the parody commercial is that […]

    9 Athletes We’d Like To See In Another Sport

    In the world of sports, conversations run rampant with “what if” scenarios. “What if Jordan hadn’t walked away following his father’s death?” “What if Portland had picked Durant first?” However, perhaps the most ethereal “what if” scenario is also one of the most fun: What if (superstar X) had gone down a different path playing […]

    5 Reasons The LeBron Backlash Is Total Bullsh*t

    Looking at the coverage 24 hours after the Mavericks twisted the dagger and the Miami Heat bled out, it’s not surprising to see LeBron James be the recipient of vitriol.

It may not have been Dirk’s best offensive output of the season.  Heck, last night’s performance may not […]

    Dirk Nowitzki scored 10 of his 21 points in the fourth quarter, despite playing with the flu.  LeBron James sucked more than Jenna Jameson in her prime.  Dwyane Wade couldn’t manage to get the butter off his fingers with 6.7 seconds remaining in the game.  Mike Miller couldn’t manage to hit the rim.  And the […]

    Picture Of The Day: ESPN’s Headline Fail!

    ESPN may be “The Worldwide Leader in Sports,” but they also appear to be the worldwide leader in headline fails.  Their latest fail came following the Dallas Mavericks Game 2 win over the Miami Heat on Thursday.  With Dirk Nowitzki helping the Mavs come back from a 15-point fourth quarter deficit, the only thing the […]

    Picture Of The Day: Larry Bird 2.0?

    If you compare Dirk Nowitzki and Larry Bird’s numbers after 13 seasons, they are almost identical.  Dirk has a slight advantage in points, three-point percentage and free-throw percentage, while Bird has the edge in field-goal percentage.  The only area that Bird holds a substantial advantage in is championships, with three compared to Dirk’s zero. Nowitzki […]
