I love this game

Its only 1 game. We hopefully have more than 100 to play this year. But what a great way to start the season. Who cares if its 4am and we just got to Utah and I know I wont be able to sleep for awhile. I hope the guys can.

We didnt do a whole lot right the first 3.5 quarters. We didnt seem comfortable at all. It wasnt completely suprising. The Suns run and gun style is at a gear higher than anything the Mavs have done over the past 5 years, so its hard to prepare for and takes some time to get used to.

Big time Kudos to Darrell Armstrong (or BC as he prefers… dont ask), for coming in and providing a huge energy and veteran spark. BC told me last year that his goal was at least 2 charges per game, no matter how many minutes he played. He got em last night and they were the turnovers we needed. BC knows how to play. He got the ball to Dirk and JT where they needed it and both came through. DIrk hitting 3-3 3pointers in the 4th. KVH ,now officially known as Keith Van Halen for makingeveryone on the bench ‘Jump’ with that big 3 (Ok, he actually got that name when he was guarding David Lee of the Knicks in preseason🙂, and JT realizing he couldnt be stopped and could get to the basket whenever he wanted, turned the light bulb on . Then the defense took over.

An insider note. The thing our guys noticed in the first OT, their guys seemed more tired than we were. Maybe because it was the first game. Maybe it was our imagination. Maybe it was making their defense work with longer offensive possessions. Will know for sure when we get our stat. But it gave us some confidence in OT.

What a funnight.

We win. I get to wear my blue sportscoat again for the first time since 1992. You know how everyone has a closet with stuff you pretty much forgot about, but never got around to throwing or giving away ? Well completely by accident I noticed the coat , and decided to have some fun. Now i have to decide whether to wear it again, do it again with another jacket…..or come up with something new.

Only downer of the night was listening to the idiots on TNT after the game. Its not unusual if we win a TNT game for us to turn it on in the locker room and hear what Charles, Kenny and co have to say. They havent gotten any better.

Let me just say this. There is a reason why Kenny and Charles havent gotten head coaching jobs. THere is more to running a team these days then thinking you know what you are talking about. Kenny, if you want to bust on us for switching on the pick and roll, get some stats to back it up. We track conversion rates on everything we do. High pick and roll, elbow pick and roll, whatever, we track it. If its not working Kenny, we adjust. I know that is probably a new concept to you and Charlie B, but thats the NBA of 2006. With all that money you guys make (hey if you are going to talk salaries, lets see how you like it), go out and hire some kids to track what actually happens in a game rather than having TNT bring in kids to go out and get donuts.

Here is a little test. How many deflections did we have last night versus our season average last year. Do you remember what a deflection is guys ? Its a nice indicator of defensive effort.

And rook..I mean Reggie Miller. Remember this rook. Every year TNT brings in the guy who was good, but retired last year, and puts them in that same seat you were sitting in. You may have noticed that they arent there any more. Do something more than just try to be another guy who tries to fit in and trade nonsensical barbs with the boys. Charles has earned the right to be the comedian who has some insights. Kenny wants to be the coach, but wont do the work, so never will be more than a sidekick. Rook, you need to add some value, or in a few weeks we will see someone else sitting in that seat. Maybe Derrick Coleman can come in and give us a Whoop De Damn Do…

But I digress. After listening to some of the idiocy, we just turned it off.

  2. Quite an irresistable combination- “b-ball and rock,” count me in in. While not a fan of your team, I certainly respect them and you guys always have class act! Hopefully Keith Van “Halen” can shine for you guys-I always felt he was a good ball player with the wrong players along side. It would appear from your comments that you have some “mojo” forming. Nice post!

    Thanks for realizing that I was talking about Reggie’s basketball accomplishments.
    Besides, the majority of players do charitable work, Reggie isn’t special.

  5. I will bet that the casual basketball fan has no idea about the size on an NBA playbook. I played in college for four years and even we had over 75 set plays.

    The culture of And1 has ruined the minds of a lot of young players. Kids nowadays are more enamored with the fancy dribble moves and the monster dunk when at the end of the play, 2 points is 2 points, there are no style points awarded.

    It would be nice for the NBA to start promoting how complex and intricate a game of basketball can be. They do it for football, they do it for baseball, it’s time for the third major sport to realize that it’s fans DO want to know how the game is played.

    Comment by Marc Siegel -

  6. If you want analysis turn to ESPN or NBATV. Those guys (TNT) are on there for the average Joe with some NBA knowledge, and a beer in the hand on the couch during the game. The hardcore fan get their stats from the net etc. I find those guys are half entertaining. You want to slam someone, give Peter Vesey a shot!

    Comment by Jeff -

  7. WOW! 95% of the posts are suck ups. So what if the Mavs won 1 game down 17 points. They will never win a championship because great basketball is played from instinct. Knowing that a pick and roll 37 inches left of the baseline while standing on your head is only 7% better than if you do it 34 inches from the base line is dumb!
    TNT does not have the guys on the show to talk to geeks! They are there to relate to fans. They are there to talk to the 20 somethings and provide alittle entertainment. Stick that in your computer Mark.

    Comment by chris -

  8. Mark,
    I liked your blazer, but I think that you’re taking the antics of the TNT guys too seriously. I think everyone just watches them for entertainment and not for in-depth analysis. It would be nice to have more real analysis, but I do find those guys entertaining although they often seem to be wrong. Also, if these guys are bad what are the ESPN Shootaround guys? Those guys make my ears bleed.

  9. hey bensley at #4

    I’ve got a 17 year old who will remember #31 for the rest of his life. The man has done more for the community in Indianapolis than your sorry ass could ever dream to do. Just ask the people at any of the children’s hospitals in the city if Reggie ever did anything that mattered. I wish him much success and if he works as hard in his post basketball carreer as he did in his playing days, he’ll do just fine.
    GO MAVS

  10. The thing that was appalling about TNT’s telecast is the new completely awful camera angles and the constant moving of the camera during the game. Man the aerial view’s, the view from the seats about 20 rows up behind some dude eating popcorn, the view from behind the basket with the stat graphic completely over the game while in play. The HD quality is good but the quality of camera work is beyond bad. I thought I was watching the XFL for a few minutes there. Mark u need HDNet to take over for these guys.

  11. I think they fly back the night of because they are WIRED after a win. and they weren’t up all day.

    Remember they don’t wake up during normal hours because they work/perform at night.

  12. Great Game!
    Was well worth the 4.30a.m. wake up call here in munich. Sad is, it will be the only live mavs game available for most german bbll fans for at least a month – but at least we can choose between the TNT crew and an enthousiastic german commentator also lacking in insight but making up with continuously explaing basic basketball rules to the german audience…

    For this casual german basketball observer one thing in all the NBA teams preparation seems odd:
    Why is it that teams travel after these games – have you’re team doctors ever analyzed if going to bed at 1a.m., sleeping normally and flying in the morning would be better than the going-to-bed-at-4a.m.-and-waking-up-dead-tired thing that seems normal between away back to backs?

  13. Mark,

    The game was worth watching it at 4 a.m. (Polish timezone). The way JT exploit Suns inability to guard him was simply run to perfection (at least on this stage of the season). People got crazy on each possesion when Dirk was guarding Steve Nash. And to get the crowd involved Steve needed to make basket after basket on Dirk.
    But let’s admit this – Suns screwed up last possesion. They should never go to Nash. He was not open. He was covered by Dirk and I bet that is what you expected. James Jones seemed to have nice touch from outside. Or even Bell. I do not recall who passed on the shot and gave the ball to Nash for off-balance 1-for-100-shot. Anyway Mavs looked for the most of the game quite slow, but fortunately for you Matrix was out-of-touch, Dirk hit a big time 3 almost from the midcourt, JT found his rythm… Nice game to start the season.

    Regards,

  14. First off Mark, even though the jacket was a little loud, it was perfect: Mavs blue and fit your personality(at least what we see courtside) perfectly. I constantly tell my friends that to me you are the epitome of what a sports owner should be. Why would some of these guys(*cough* tom hicks) buy sports teams when they don’t care about the sport or the team?(besides the obvious profit…)
    I loved the game last night, my roommate and I watched the whole thing and were quite impressed with the guys’ ability to really push through the last 10 minutes and outplay the Suns.
    p.s. I was so excited when you were at SMU a couple weeks ago. I think you should guest lecture more often!

  15. Great win in Phoenix, but it seemed like fatigue caught up with the guys in the Delta Center. As for the TNT crew, I’m guessing they already had their comments ready before the game even started. I think they decided about 5 years ago that the Mav’s needed to work on their defense and just haven’t bothered to update their commentary or watch a game all the way through. I noticed last season that just about every week they usually said the same things about particular teams regardless of what had just happened in the game, and then just worked off of the highlights the TNT guys ran for them at halftime. Once they get tired of Reggie, they’ll just give more time to Magic to stumble through some scripted commentary. And speaking of the donuts, I missed last night’s show but have they figured out a way to hide CB, or is he still exposed out to the right of that desk?

    Comment by Jared Miller -

  16. Mark I loved the game last night! What a thrill it was to come back after it looked as if there was going to be a disappointing opener. I had to say I was losing faith in the fourth quarter before the awesome 24-7 run. I pray that Terry’s free throws are not continually that bad….that was pretty frustrating and I KNOW he shoots way better than that at the line. Anyways, keep up the exciting work!
    Thanks,

  17. Mark,

    Congrats on the great win last night! How great was that watching Dirk guard Nash, especially in the 2nd overtime!

    I am a Lakers fan first and a Mavs fan second but a big fan of your blog. Miami is a close third just because of my love and respect for Shaq. I think your comments on TNT are pretty much right on although I do find the guys entertaining most of the time which I think is what they’re really all about. Wasn’t Reggie Miller known as the guy that couldn’t win big games? I know he’s been a clutch player but look at his playoff record. I’ve always respected him as a player but he has choked many times when it really counted. We’ll see how he turns out as analyst.

    Keep up the good work with the Mavs and continue bringing us more HD programming! I am really loving the NFL Sunday Ticket in HD on DirecTV, wish the NBA would bring us more games in HD as well.

    Go Lakers! and Mavs!

  19. Hey, I don’t have much to say about the game last night, but I thought I’d mention that you were right about what they would talk about on Sportscenter.

    I saw more about what the players were wearing, then what they did in their respective games. But on the brighter side, your blue sports coat was on there twice😉

  20. Mark, I am a huge fan of your blog and think you are a genius, especially when it comes to today’s economic marketplace. I also think you are a classy, respectable guy. But please, give Reggie his respect. He has given so much to the game, as well as given so much to his communities, he deserves a certain level of respect.

  21. Mark,

    #1 – I am a big mavs fan, congrats on the win
    #2 – the jacket must go
    #3 – barkley is funny, why are you so angry?? most of the time they speak the truth and the Spurs will win the Championship again. They are way too deep with Fin and Van Excel (who you should have never got rid of).

    (Damp is not going to take the mavs to the promise land, period…he is lazy and will get hurt again this season) Where is the scoring going to come from? If you play JT, Josh, Van Horn, Dirk etc…there is no muscle there. Raja Bell sure looked good didn’t he? Mavs need a player like that. KVH must go, Damp must go, get some real players in here who can play defense and work the floor.

    Comment by Brandon -

  22. As a journalism student, I am appalled at TNT’s coverage. It is so blatently biased, it is disgusting. It may be acceptable if the analysis of the games were complete or if they cared to back up some of their more EXTREME opinions such as “the Spurs will win the championship, why even play the season?”–but they fail to do this. Not only that, but for the love of God, get some new opinions! Or at least give me reasons. They say the Spurs are going to win the championship based on what merit? They won it last year. Oh, wow! What a great observation, jackasses! How controversial! How origninal!

    And if you are marketing the game so that people actually want to watch it, how about you don’t say that the whole season might as well not be played because the Spurs are going to win the championship; hands-down, no questions asked. Why belittle your analysis of the other 29 teams in the league just because you think you’ve got all the answers? They literally said, it doesn’t matter about other teams, Spurs got it. How ignorant is that? And Kenny is an idiot. At least Barkley is funny.

    All I know is Mark Followill and Bob Ortegal are great people and I will chose them over those morons any day.

    Final Note: Dirk Nowitzki clearly waiving Cheryl Miller off after raising his arms in glory and walking back to the locker room; classic! Good call, Dirk!

  23. Tom(post #8);

    2 questions:

    how many championships?
    how many MVPs?

    reggie is 12th in points. but probably isnt even in the top 50 in points/game. which goes to prove my point that in 20 years, a 20 year old kid who is just a casual fan most likely wont know who he is.

  24. Though I’m not a fan, I absolutely love to watch Dirk. I’m glad your game lasted sooooo long! Go Jazz! 1-0!

  25. Re: B Johnson comment #19

    I never claimed that Kenny Smith had a high basketball intelligence quotient. I merely stated that his credentials indicate that he has run NBA offenses and defenses, and from the point guard position at that. The salient point of my argument was that Mr. Cuban, from the vantage of an owner and wielding “deflection statistics,” is not inherently more credible than the person he is criticizing nor are the things that he states are lacking in the TNT broadcast necessarily what provides that credibility. Personally, I like the TNT show for the entertainment value, not the basketball knowledge it does or doesn’t provide. I certainly agree that Kenny Smith won’t be considered for many coaching positions. Given the qualifications, neither would Mr. Cuban.

    As for the use of “sycophant,” my comment’s other implicit point was that Mr. Cuban has likely adopted things he hears in the locker room or in conversations with his employees and tries to pass it off as if he has innate basketball credibility, inclusive of his post here and previous comments on record that endeavor to show the basketball fans and his paying customers that he has a certain level of exceptional understanding and expertise in the sport. While I suppose the general public and his paying customers aren’t his superiors–therefore making “sycophant” less-than-traditional in my usage–it could be argued that Mr. Cuban’s comments here are self-serviant in that they draw attention to himself and, by extension, his team–which in turn creates a profit for himself. My apologies to you and your rigid grammar and usage expectations if I was too liberal in my application of the term.

    Comment by B. Neal -

  26. Is it me or is there a little anger in your tone? I agree with you that Kenny’s a tool who’s just there to provide surface commentary for the everyday joe to understand while Charles is there for comic relief. I know they’re running off old stereotypes of your team, which I have to admit, was very much deserved under the old Nellie regime, so now it’s up to AJ to fix your rep. Good Luck with the season . . . i think it’s time to sit Christie down and start Marquis . . . boy’s earned his spot . . . doug’s being whipped at home too much to have any energy on the court anymore . . . anyways, here’s a question I think you would give me the best answer to. . . who’s the one team in the league that all the GMs hate trading with?

    Comment by www.podcastmayhem.com -

  27. After my Suns had the game firmly in hand, I started flipping the channel over to Dave Letterman, who had Martha Stewart on. I mean, who could blow a 17 point lead. I guess I learned my lesson – NEVER FLIP THE CHANNEL!

    Loved your blue suit jacket, by the way.

    Comment by Wirthy -

  28. In response to post #18: You actually like Stephen A Smith as an analyst? I think he’s better off with his show, where he can talk directly to athletes, but his game analysis is crap. I didn’t see the broadcast, but I already know what everyone means when they discuss Charles and Kenny and Tim. I really hope Reggie comes into his own.

    Personally, I like David Aldridge. I think if you match him up with Charles and Reggie, you may get a better analysis.

    Comment by Mark Goodchild -

  29. Amen. Thumbs down on the TNT crew – totally pathetic. Aside from all the Mavs bashing, they’re just plain terrible at their craft.

    Re: B. Neal – Kenny Smith was a nice player but is, nevertheless, a Basketball Idiot. He’s only on the show to play ‘straight man’ to Sir Charles’ goofball. The fact he rode Hakeem’s shirttail for a couple of years says nothing of his knowledge of the game’s finer points. No disrespect, but Will Perdue has 4 Championship rings. Does that mean he has twice the basketball IQ of Kenny Smith? Also, if you’re going to use a word like sycophantic, at least know what it means first so that your argument makes sense.

    Comment by B. Johnson -

  30. Bulls fan here, watched the game last night. Great effort, I myself hate watching NBA anaylsts, kenny and chuck are bad, not nearly as bad as Tim Legler. I think the two best analysts right now are Greg Anthony and Stephen A. Smith. Anyways, great effort from your guys last night. Terrific game, but don’t forget. If the cubs are for sale = you buy dat stuff. Lol jk.. not really, but do it.

    just do it.

    Comment by Gabriel -

  31. Don’t rip on Reggie. He’s 10 times the player that you or your entire organzation ever thought of having.

    BTW: You and your 4’8″ “coach” are still playing Dirk out of position.

    None of those guys in the TNT studio will ever do a good job. You can’t have 3 homeboys in there analyze stuff. It turns to street very fast. Sad thibng is the only white guy in the studio probably makes much less than the ex-athletes on there, but if it wasn’t for him, the conversation would go from horrible to totally horrible.

  32. Congrats on winning the first of many, Mark. I’ve been a huge Mavs fan since the day I was born and raised in Dallas and I’m now supporting you 900 miles away at your alma mater, IU.

    Agree 100% with your assesment of TNT’s drones. Pointless commentary.

    Comment by andrew -

  33. Nice comeback for your boys last night. Our all time favorite Magic, Darrell “Flash” Armstrong really changed the tempo of the game. He was big in the fourth quarter. I like your team this year, and as a big fan of the NBA, appreciate your enthusiasm for your team. It’s great to see you out there jumping out of your seat like us real fans. Nice suit jacket last night also!

    Hey about the TNT fellas, couldn’t agree more. They’re act has gotten old. I like Charles, he says what’s on his mind, no matter how smart or dumb it may be. The other guys, well, it shouldn’t be smart ass remarks back and forth all night long. As for Reggie, he’s playing along, I agree he needs to bring something unique to survive.

    Have a great season!

    Comment by Eddie -

  34. Mr. Cuban, Kenny Smith has two championship rings. This does not make him an astute observer or potential coaching candidate. But neither do the sort of statistics and independent business success that you possess, the traits you possess that have allowed you to be involved in this game. Your ownership of the Mavericks gives you the opportunity to voice your opinions, but neither your opinions nor your role in the sport (which is as an owner) seems to indicate anything other than a sycophantic basketball acumen borrowed from second hand locker room jargon and the need to feel like one of the guys. Mr. Smith understood basketball–and the pick and roll–well enough to be a starter on back to back championship teams. Perhaps is commentary is lacking in depth, but the depth of statistics and criticism from an owner who hasn’t built a champion is no more credible.

    Comment by B. Neal -

  35. Ahhhh and the Reggie haters coem out of the woodwork. Any chance to diss him, some people will take. And to the person who doens’t think Reggie is one of the greatest cluthc players of all time, it is YOU sir, who know nothing about basketball. Good lord, the idiocy of such a statement astounds me.

    Comment by Jason -

  36. Thanks for the comments Mark. I’m thrilled to get back to basketball talk from the perspective of an owner.

    You’re right as usual. TNT commentators are cliche’. We want analysis, not rhetoric.

    Let the new Mavs roll!

    Comment by Scott Griffith -

  37. You have to give the TNT guys some credit “Hey, looks like Mark Cuban is wearing one of Craig Sager’s suits.”

    Comment by cali -

  39. I had a substantial financial interest in the Mavs last evening (-2). The first three 1/2 quarters were just awful…then the fun started! Just a great comeback. I am not surprised that some of your players felt that the Suns were a little tired…I had the sense throughout the fourth quarter that the Mavs were just one run from taking over the game; the Suns seemed to be hanging on, which may be strange to say about a team that had built a 17 point lead…which is why the first 6 minutes of the quarter were just so maddening. Charles and Kenny torched you guys at the half, too. CB said that you guys can’t guard anybody. Oh well, I cashed in, and at some point this year will come back for more in the right spot (tonight is not the right spot).

    Comment by Kenneth T. Jakubowski -

  40. Bensley (post #4), you don’t know what you’re talking about. Reggie Miller was one of the greatest clutch players in the history of the NBA. Do you remember the finals against the Bulls, how good Miller was? Reggie Miller has over 25,000 career points.

    Only someone who is NOT a basketball fan would make your statement. You obviously don’t know squat about basketball or the history of the game.

  42. Your passion for the team never ceases to amaze Mark. The bright blue jacket’s gotta go, however. I think the Mavs have some nice young talent in Howard, Harris, and Daniels, so giving them as much time as possible is the #1 priority. The old guys (Dampier, Christie, etc.) are garbage… wasted money. I still think the Mavs aren’t going anywhare in the playoffs. It’s painfully obvious. They’ll have a decent regular season and get ousted in the first round. You love to discredit the TNT guys, but have they ever been wrong? Year after year they predict a good regular season and a quick playoff oust, and year after year they’re right. Facts are facts. Package some of your scrubs and a young stud and get an Igoudala type player in return to complement Dirk.

    Comment by Nik Papic -

  43. Holy cow Mark! Taking a swing at King Charles. I like Barkley, he is entertaining. Reggie is one of my all time favorite clutch players. I am surprised you’re taking a swing at them. Why don’t you do a one hour NBA show? I’d tune in, and I bet millions of others would too. Maybe you could get MJ out of retirement.

    Comment by Tom -

  44. Congrats on the win. I couldn’t agree more that Barkley is an idiot, but he doesn’t seem to care and he is occassionly funny. BTW, they were totally dissing Fin in the first half of the SA game, but he made them eat crow with his clutch 2nd half shots. It was weird last night seeing Fin, Nash, Bell, Najera and Van Exel playing elsewhere. Seems like the WCF were just yesterday and they were Mavs.

    Comment by Doc -

  45. What’s even better about Reggie; in 20 years, kids my age(20-ish) won’t know who Reggie Miller is/was/whatever. And for my generation, he’ll just be some guy who hit a couple shots, but did nothing that ever really mattered in the long run.

    Grats on the W last night, but the real basketball season starts November, 10th. Go Hoosiers!

    Comment by bensley -

  46. Good to see you talking about basketball again. I agree 100% with Mark’s assessment of the TNT’s “analysis.” I usually tune into game about 10 minutes after the television start time because I can’t stand the pregame commentary. It has become all style & no substance. They don’t really add anything worthwhile to listen to. You could almost program a dummy to say it.

    “The (insert losing team here) really didn’t come out to play today. In the second half they’re going to have to match (insert the winning team here)’s intesity. (Best player on the losing team) really needs to get his team going in the locker room if he wants to be a leader in this league.”

    They’ve really dumbed it down to the lowest common denominator.

  47. I think it’s great, (via the power of the internet) that you can share your thoughts with us at 4am after your first game of the season. Also, I would like to compliment you for being the only owner that I know of, that shares your thoughts in a public forum.

    Don’t worry; no one takes the TNT guys seriously. The only reason I watch it so that I can laugh at Charles. Let’s face it; those guys are there more for their entertainment value not their journalism skills.

    Keep up the good work.

  48. Religious reader of your blog. Congrats on the huge win last night, Mark. Nothing like watching your bounce around on the sideline in ecstasy. I am not a huge fan of the NBA, but I am slowly coming back around after the strike. I work in PR, and think you do a great job innovating your fan experience. Something the Sonics just don’t get here in Seattle. Great to see Dirk and DC rise to the occasion! Again congrats. Hope you have well over 82 more nights like yesterday! The passion you bring to the game only helps to win back jaded fans like myself. I respect you for that, and wanted to say thanks! Looks like I have been missing out on some damn good basketball!

  52. Your ownership of the Mavericks gives you the opportunity to voice your opinions, but neither your opinions nor your role in the sport (which is as an owner) seems to indicate anything other than a sycophantic basketball acumen borrowed from second hand locker room jargon and the need to feel like one of the guys.

  53. However, I am not here to discuss the criticisms that the TNT analysts made of your team (as you seem to be doing a rather slanted and incorrigible job of it yourself); rather, I am here to ask you to refrain from taking this any further than you have already.

  59. Mark, The guys on TNT are rediculous. I have heard the same garbage for over 3 years about how they think the Mavs aren’t going to win. Charles needs to quit his commentary or pay us to listen to him stutter all night. For Reggie, he’s a great player and has always been one of the best competitors in the NBA. With that said, he has no commentary skills what so ever and his insight into the game was far from stellar. TNT’s production of the NBA has always been awful and my expectations of their show is next to watching a High School news broadcast.

    Anyways, When are you going to buy the Chicago Cubs??? Please save us from our misery of horrible ownership/managment. If you turned them around you would be known as the SPORTS GOD!

    Go Mavs!

  64. Nice blog!

    Comment by PSP game -

  65. Congrats for the nice win against the Suns. I really thought Sir Charles to be hilarious and one heck of a player but what i can’t take is his comment with his partner kenny smith… i think they should analyze more on what the mavs do on paper rather than what they on the game. read 82games.com Sir Charles! you’re one of my idols but it’s a shame that you doubt the plan and preparation of the Mavs every game. i think the owner really take it by heart the comments about the mavs being soft or weak in defense. Mr. Cuban just do your thing! You sure get a lot of talented players but im quite disappointing for taking dampier and cristie… i just wish your team good luck!

  70. You have stat guys that track deflections and such??? I know that stats are fun to look at, I love box scores. Let those guys keep stats. Youmake it sounds like whatever Rocky movie that was with Dolph Lundgren, he had all the technology and such, and got beat by another that had great work ethic and heart. The Spurs are your Rocky, keep a team together with the right pieces for longer than 2 yrs. (I still can’t believe the Van Exel deal) and you may just have a team that can develop a heart. I love the Lakers, when they first won with Kobe and Shaq, they did it because they had played together for a while. When they created the “Fantastic Four” they proved that moves don’t = champions.

  71. Mr. Mark Cuban,
    Your actions and comments with regards to Charles Barkley and Kenny Smith, are, without a doubt, empty. A team owner can almost never really have an edge on those that have lived on the court, at least not in terms of basketball sense.
    It may make sense to the spectators to switch up on the pick-and-roll; however, it is another case entirely if you’re the less mobile big-man being tossed up and faked out by the smaller guard. Similarly, the smaller guard on defense will undoubtedly have trouble defending the larger, precise and methodical big-man running the other end of the pick and roll.
    However, I am not here to discuss the criticisms that the TNT analysts made of your team (as you seem to be doing a rather slanted and incorrigible job of it yourself); rather, I am here to ask you to refrain from taking this any further than you have already. The steps you took to “clear up” the situation (such as addressing the fact that you called Charles Barkley an idiot) have been intelligent, but are definitely not sufficient. They wont let you get off that easy. Let’s break down what you did, shall we? You insulted their place of work (with a frighteningly caustic air, I might add), you insulted them directly and personally (citing their ‘supposed’ inability to coach teams), and you essentially revealed yourself as a biased, narrowminded franchise owner that has been blessed with riches and an enthusiasm for one of the best games on the planet, and almost none of the knowledge regularly associated with enthusiasts such as yourself.
    After reading your comments for a fourth time, I still cannot see how Barkley and Smith can interpret your comments in a different manner – Kenny was dead on in saying that you, yourself, addressed the TNT analysis staff. Your reaction was childish and unnecessary; so they said your defense sucks. I’ll say it right now: Mavs defense is trash. What are you going to do, cry about it on your blog? I’d hate to think that you’d put yourself on a level as low as that of a middle school girl. Think about it for a second: Kenny and Charles said our defense was subpar. Here’s an idea, lets insult them personally on the internet, and get worked up over criticism that is not relevant to my part in the Mavericks franchise anyways!
    Pragmatic, aren’t you?
    Even if they were being ‘idiotic’ (as you so boldly and idiotically declared), that is no reason to attack them personally. You call yourself a professional? I’m not going to comment on that – I might pull a Mark Cuban and personally offend you to the point where it gets blown up on nba.com and is extremely detrimental to the image of my franchise.
    Except I don’t have a franchise, and I’m not stupid.
    Basically, I’m saying that the professional world of basketball is about to watch you get thoroughly grilled by TNT (unless they let you off), and no one but Mavs fans and your unwilling administration are going to feel sorry for you.

  72. Kenny and Barkley know what they are talking about and even if they dont they know more about basketball than you’ll ever know. Stats dont show if a players good or not, Its how they play. Personally i hate the Mavericks but even if i did like them I know that their owne4r stupid. So next time you wana say something stupid, dont.

    Comment by judd -

  73. Everyone knows that Barkley and Smith dont really know what they are talking about and basically just go off of the general opinion of the public and the general predictions of the public and the media. Charles is fun to listen to sometimes but he is an idiot. He doesnt even know who some players play for, when they asked him the other night. They actually do that segment regularly and he always does bad at it. I love the way you stand up for the team Mark and I hope you dont listen to them when they bash the team. I love the team and lets see how this thing works out. I must say though that I heard yall turned down a deal for Paul Pierce, which I think is a deal that you need to make if its possible. You saved alot of money cutting Finley and the fans need to see it was done for a reason and purpose. Thanks alot.

    Comment by Eric Wright -

  74. Mark, serious question – do you think Dirk Nowitzki needs to be physically tougher for the Mavs to contend for a championship? He’s got a great shot and is cleary one of the league’s best, but does he need to get a bit more “rough” to take the Mavs over the hump? Lastly, didn’t you guys make a move to sign Karl Malone last year?

    Comment by Fredo Teabaggins -

  75. I wrote to TNT and asked them what the hell they were thinking when they got Barkley in there…hes crass, rude, not funny…and talks basketball, but has nothing to back it up. Just because you played the game doesn’t mean you have insight into other teams or games. I wondered how long he sits up at night thinking about what to say the next day? Then I think, wait…hes prob up eating, not thinking…and we all know he can’t do both…There is a reason you didn’t get your ring chuck…and you can’t blame anyone other than yourself for that…and it’s nothing TNT will prove to the rest of the world for you. You are a lazy show boat and likes attention, thats something in childhood you missed. That cost you a ring. You will do or say anything to feel like you fit in and it will never fill the void you never fofilled. It’s time to let it go. Just cause you blocked shots and slamed the ball and passed behind your back once in while and got lucky, doesn’t make you a professional analyst of the game. TNT did you a favor, don’t repay them by talking, just shake your head and smile, thats the best thing you could do for TNT and the NBA!

    Comment by Dave -

  76. I’ve got to talk about Reggie. He doesn’t have a ring. He doesn’t have an MVP. But he -is- one of the greatest NBA players of all time. Any serious NBA fan 20 years from now who doesn’t know who he is should seriously consider another hobby.

    Other great NBA players without a championship:
    Dominique Wilkins
    Karl Malone
    John Stockton
    Kevin Johnson
    Patrick Ewing
    Chris Mullin
    Dan Majerle
    Larry Johnson
    Muggsy Bogues
    Spud Webb
    …and Charles Barkley

    This list does not include players who have yet to retire and could still, in theory, win a championship.

    This is not to say anything about the Mavericks, in this or any previous incarnation. This is simply to say that Reggie Miller was and is among the elite NBA players of all time. And if ANYONE truly wants to argue the point:

    People still talk about it. Nuff said.

  78. You sound bitter, why not let your team do the talking? Pick and roll statistics mean nothing in 2006. Just think what would have happened if Phoenix had Amare, it would have been a laugher.

    Comment by Brian Jackson -

  79. Well,well,well: I do not claim to have a great deal of knowldge of the game nor the statistics in my head to know who is right or wrong or even if there is one. I do know I’d rather see Charles and Kenny any day before I would like to see the antics of Markie. Charles and Kenny as well as TNT are their for our enjoyment and you for what I don’t know. Dallie is ok well pertty good but I feel will never be the best in the NBA or at least make it to the championship (not gonna happen). Just the comment of a NBA fan.

    Comment by A

  80. All I needed to know about the Mavs I learned last year against the Rockets in the playoffs. About a minute and a half left, 2 or 3 point game, shot clock at about 10. Dirk gets a switch, gets the ball with his back to the hoop about 12 feet away posting on JON BARRY. He holds it for 3 seconds, then kicks it out and they turn it over. This is your “superstar”. That sequence pretty much sums up the Dallas Mavericks. And secondly Cuban, if you wouldnt kill for Reggie Miller on this Mavs team, you know less about basketball than I thought

    Comment by Paul Girman -

  82. Dude!!!!!! You no nothing about basketball. Charles was a great player; an Olympic champion; league MVP, etc, etc. Kenny was a clutch player on an NBA-title winning team. It is you who is the “idiot!!!” Please, do us all a favor: shut up!!!!!!!!!!!

    Comment by Aleksandar -

  83. Mark,
    You should be internet savvy and marketing savvy enough to know that people want entertainment from their basketball television personalities. These guys being former successful NBA players makes their opinions worth hearing to most NBA enthusiasts. People don’t want to watch statisticians drone on, that’s what they use the internet for. People definitely don’t want to hear about some crybaby owner whine about everything and act like a spoiled brat all of the time.

    Comment by Regan -

  84. Mark Cuban’s response showed how childish he is. Kenny and Charles are analysts. They are supopsed to tell you what a team is doing right/wrong. And for Mark to respond by addressing Kenny and Charles trying to coach was just besides the point. Rather than whinning over their statements and addressing unrelated issues, why not take their advice? They are telling you what’s wrong with your team and all of a sudden you take it personal. And then you turn around, diss them and say “Its not personal, its just business advice.” And talking about Reggie Miller… that was just crossing waaaay over the line. Who on your weak Maverick’s team has as much heart as Reggie, the best clutch shooter in the game? Definitely not Dirk (who by the way I do not know how he got on the Harlem Globetrotters)If you had any basketball sense, maybe you would not have let Van Exel go after proving he had the most guts in the playoffs 3 years ago. Maybe you would not have let Nash go to lead another team to the Western Conf Finals and become league MVP. Charles was right. Your team plays well during the season and takes a vacation in the playoffs. The toughest guy out there is J. Terry, but even his toughness is overshadowed by the overall team being a bunch of cupcakes. And it seems like that runs all the way up to ownership with the way you responded.

    Comment by Jenkins -

  85. Reggie has earned the right to do whatever he wants. He has provided some of the game’s best and most memorable moments ever, he will forever be remembered.

  87. Mark, I don’t think you should post a blog at 4am in the morning anymore. The rambling complaints of TNT’s studio crew was like listening to Bill Walton recite the alphabet. You know he’s going to get some letters wrong and make an ass of himself.

    There’s probably no TV hoops personality who can equally entertain and inform at a high level except for perhaps Greg Anthony. Taking pot shots at studio “analysts” because they correctly stated that you have a regular season team is pointless. Your team has to be more than just entertaining. They need to win it all to change the minds of those who believe that your team will be nothing more but a practice squad for the eventual champs.

    Rumour has it that Old School Stern will soon retire his command of commissioner. Have you thought of applying for the position?

    Comment by Noah Buddy -

  88. All you Dallas Mavs’ Fans are crazy!!! Let’s be real, the TNT crew knows what they are talking about. With all their joking aside, they know what they’re talking about. Okay, the guys on ESPN don’t know crap except Tim Legler. Greg A. is a wannabe analyst. Steven A. just tells it like it is (He’s decent sometimes!) Out of all the reporters and analysts of the NBA, the TNT crew is the most fun! The TNT crew makes basketball fun. So, who cares if they don’t pay attention to stats? You can go on the internet for that. I don’t need an ex-NBA player to tell me stats. I want to hear about the game through their eyes. And yes, basketball was not the same when Kenny and Charles played, but it’s still about the same fundamentals. That is something that will never change. For Cuban to make fun of those dudes, what does that say about the owner. If you had respect for these guys, maybe you should pay a little bit more attention to what they are saying and take their advice. I want to know why would you let Fin go?? You need to check your boy, Dirk, he disappeared in the playoffs last year. He wanted to get on everyone else, but was a no show himself. Charles is right. Dallas Mavs are a bunch of cupcakes! Don’t take it personal. The truth hurts sometimes. That’s wrong to go after Reggie, too! The best all-time clutch player to have ever played in the NBA. Hey, if you can’t take the heat, get out of the kitchen! Maybe this game is not for you!

  89. Steve Kunzer, do you believe this is being soft ?…http://www.geocities.com/lenard_hester/StackOwned.JPG
    Bottom line dirk wont get the same calls, because of his background (yes as stupid as that might sound), he is an euro player, a totally different player than Duncan or Garnett, thats why he will never get the same calls as those other dudes. Everybody says that the mavs are soft mainly because of dirk and his style of play (7-ft SG/SF/PF/C), he doesnt post up like duncan and garnett do, thats why he doesnt get the respect he should be getting.

    Last time I checked, Jason Terry, Josh Howard, Stack/Daniels, and Dampier and Diop were all black dudes and they still dont get any calls like they should. Its not an excuse, but its a fact, the mavs still have that reputation when we had the most foregin/white players in our team, but guess what, thats not the case anymore. We only have 1 white player that is a starter, and we still dont get any respect. Thats lame.

    Just because a team doesnt play Defense like the Pistons/Pacers, w/e, it doesnt mean they are soft, some other teams dont have an offense as potent as the mavs had, and they are not being called soft right ?, its all about respect, which the mavs arent getting any

    Comment by Alex -

  90. Firstly — after hearing about this blog forever, I _FINALLY_ looked it up. Kudos for being a smart, forward-thinking exec who blogs without having corporate counsel doing it for them.

    As to the Mavs opener — exciting. My Lakers have started off nicely, and given their penchant for allowing a LOT of scoring, the Mav/Laker matchups should be a blast to watch.

    Comment by BruinEric -

  91. Love to read your blog, but your assessment of your teams strategy of switching on the pick-n-roll is off base.

    The most success that I’ve ever seen a team have guarding the pick-n-roll was the Chicago Bulls strategy of crowding and double teaming the small John Stockton off of the screen. Bulls used oversized athletic perimeter players like Jordan, Harper, and Pippen to block Stockton’s court vision.

    The Mavs have oversized, athletic perimeter players that can be used on Nash, and the ability to crowd and trap him off the screen with your athletic forwards. But simply switching the screen and roll is ineffective. Quick/Smart point guards like Nash, Rafer Alston, Deron Williams are smart enough and skilled enough to recognize that they’re being guarded one on one by a forward, and they’ll abuse the mismatch 100% of the time.

    With the athleticism of your players, it shouldn’t be necessary to switch 100% of the screens. A quick show of the forward to slow Nash down and give Terry or Armstrong a chance to recover would be preferrable to constant switching.

    Even better would be to adopt the Phil Jackson Bulls’ strategy of using oversized, athletic perimeter players like Marquis Daniels or Josh Howard on Nash-esque players to limit the PG’s vision and angles on pick-n-rolls.

    Comment by Jonathan Reynolds -

  92. Very good points, Jay Mac. You should be the next GM of the Mavs.

    Comment by Kevin -

  93. Hey Cuban,

    In regards to your 4am rant against the TNT boys, I’ll give you a mulligan. Let’s examine your intelligence, shall we? You had Nick Van Exel, who was your best playoff player, and you traded him. Next, you traded Antawn Jamison, a player who blended in beautifully, for Jerry “black hole” Stackhouse. You let Steve Nash go, who uh…..went on to win the MVP. Notice a pattern? Like most millionaires with over-blown ego’s, you think you know more than you actually do. If you were as half as intelligent as Kenny and Charles, you might actually be the only team left in the West who could compete with the Spurs. I mean seriously, the Lakers and Kings have fallen off the map, and all you had to do was have a little patience and you might have won a championship by now! Feel free to email me if you’d like some advice before you make another bonehead move and trade yourself into the lottery!

    Comment by Jay Mac -

  94. YEAH DIRK GETS NO CALLS BECAUSE THE SECOND HE TOUCHES THE BALL ITS SHOT. HE’S A GREAT SHOOTER, BUT HE WAS LUCKY 2 GO TO THE LINE 700 TIMES LAST YEAR ACTUALLY THATS UNBELIEVABLE. SHUT UP ABOUT BLACKS AD WHITES WHOEVER THINKS DUNCAN GETS CALLS SHOULD WATCH SHAWN KEMP(I MEAN AMARE) AGAINST TD. THE REFS IN THE NBA ARE WHITE AND BLACK AND DO NOT FAVOR ANY BLACK PLAYERS GIVE ME A BREAK. TIM DUNCAN PLAYED INJURED THROUGH THE ENTIRE PLAYOFFS AND GOT PAST BEN WALLACE AND SHEED IN THE FINALS DO NOT QUESTION IF HE IS TOUGH.

    Comment by Steve Kunzer -

  95. Finley and Van Exel have been the only players with spine in Dallas since you’ve been there. Van Exel is Clutch and Finley is still better than any 1-3 on your team. Please don’t call Reggie “Rook” ever again. You are a Fantasy basketball rube with money who knows how to lose in the playoffs i’ll give you that, but don’t act like you understand the NBA.
    Posted Nov 3, 2005, 9:46 PM ET by ALEX
    The mavs are not the “whitey” or “soft” team in the NBA with 90% of foreign/euro players (actually san antonio is now)
    GOOD ONE, SAN ANTONIO ALSO HAS 3 MORE TITLES THAN DALLS AND BEAT THE PISTONS, SO DO NOT SAY THEY ARE SOFT. THE MAVS WOULD BE THE SOFTEST TEAM IN THE WNBA.
    GO SPURS GO!!!

    Comment by Steve Kunzer -

  96. To Post #27,
    The Spurs will win the championship without a doubt because not only did they keep their exact same team from last year, which did win them a championship, but they also signed players to make them that much better, and deeper. So it isn’t that hard to see the proof behind what they are saying on TNT.

    Comment by Shane Guymon -

  97. Charles and Kenny don’t have intelligent basketball minds, but neither does Mr. Cuban (judging from his personnel movements; coaching and otherwise) Bottom line is people don’t really watch Inside the NBA for the in depth analysis, they watch it because it makes them laugh and they get to see highlights. It’s more entertaining then, I don’t know, let’s say The Benefactor.

    And as stupid as Charles is he still got it right when he said the Mavs are a great regular season team, but come playoff time they will not succeed. Can anyone refute this?

    Mark can b*tch about their comments all he wants (it’s his blog), but ultimately, at the end of the day, their final analysis of his team is accurate. The Mavs won’t make it to the Finals and they’d be extremely lucky if they even make it to the Western Conference finals. Do people actually believe they are a championship caliber team?

    Comment by g -

  98. Maybe your team should at least get to the Finals before you start popping off at the mouth. The reason the TNT guys have said your team can’t win it all the last 3 years is because IT’S TRUE! Honestly, do you think a soft team that doesn’t play defense has a snowball’s chance against a team like the Spurs?

    well see the mavericks were never soft its just that there star player Nowistki is white and white players dont get calls. IF a white player decides to play physical he will foul out in about 4 minutes.

    If a black player decides to play physical they will call him “the glove”

    DO you actually think DUncan is tough? The refs have his back as he is a star black player. ITs a terrible injustice in my humble opinion.

    Comment by Craigp -

  99. you catch that on TNT mark? i dunno, i feel they got you pretty good.

    Comment by Keith James Barca -

  100. Mr. Cuban

    I am surprised at you, Kenny and Charles have been pointing in season in and season out that stats don’t mean anything. Basketball is simple the only thing you need to do is value each possession.

    Perhaps they talk nonsense sometimes, but that’s exactly what basketball is about you can be 40 and still act like a kid in front of millions. Perhaps you are loosing focus of what you enjoy about the game.

    Try this for one time, throw away most of the stats (I am not saying all of them) and simplify things for people, Basketball is about human reactions to unexpected events. You as a computer person should know that that is very hard to model.

    Just have your players, play the game and provide effort, after that throw in some stats.

    Yes, your team had many deflections on that game, but that doesn’t mean anything, it could mean that the Suns played poorly, or they put an effort at the end of the game. If that’s the case why they had to come from 17.

    Also when did those deflection happened?/ Under what circumstances?

    Perhaps you should listen more and just get what you can use. You can always learn something every day from anybody including idiots.

    Comment by Ian Falu -

  101. Mark, what are you talking about? Are you seriously calling out Charles Barkley. Dude just because you own an NBA team doesn’t mean you know anything about the game. It just means you have alot of money, and perhaps you are a fan OF the game. The fact of the matter is in that game your guys weren’t coming off picks. Also fact of the matter is, Dallas does not have a team that is able to win a championship. To quote Charles and Kenny Dallas has a “regular season team.” So like Always Dirk will lead ya’ll to the play-offs, and then ya’ll will be out in two or three rounds. But hey atleast ya’ll make it fun for the fans to watch. I mean I love the team you have put together, they are exciting and fast pase. Dirk is definetly one of the best players in the NBA. I also have no problem at all admiting that you aren’t gonna win a championship anytime soon.

    Comment by Shane Guymon -

  102. Hey Cubes,

    Maybe your team should at least get to the Finals before you start popping off at the mouth. The reason the TNT guys have said your team can’t win it all the last 3 years is because IT’S TRUE! Honestly, do you think a soft team that doesn’t play defense has a snowball’s chance against a team like the Spurs? Face it, you’re a perennial playoff team that will never go all the way and no matter what you might say to the contrary the facts speak for themselves. By the way, nice jacket.

    Comment by Brent Madden -

  103. Dear owner of west finals loser in 2003 I think you should be quiet about kenny and chuck. They know more about hoops than u will ever. Tracking stats is cute but no team in the NBA except 4 maybe sacremento says We are going to have 2 worry about how tough this team is. The only good thing you have going for your team is Avery he is class.
    P.S. way 2 get rid of Nash
    GO Spurs GO!!!

    Comment by Steve Kunzer -

  104. Mark Cuban, you rock!,

    I didnt even know you had a blog, just heard about it fromt he TNT halftime show.

    Kenny and Charles are aight in my opinion but its good to see them taking some heat once in a while, they’ll be better off for it. They do say stupid things and comments like yours hopefully will keep them sharp. But Barkely is jsut awesome, even if what he says is wrong sometimes, he’s worth listening to. I think.

    Comment by Craigp -

  105. GO MAVS !!!!, cubes, you own, tell those TNT haters to F off, really there’s no other way to say it. The mavs are not the “whitey” or “soft” team in the NBA with 90% of foreign/euro players (actually san antonio is now), and we still get trashed to the ground. Yes the mavs need still more D, but we are getting there. Dirk rocks btw…

    GO DALLAS MAVERICKS!!!!!! screw TNT staff, except Ernie, he is the most decent guy of them all

    Comment by ALEX -

  106. Mark you can rant all you want, unless your team makes any noise in the post season, you can just stop w/ the TNT bashing.

    p.s. you can advise your 10 million dollar center dumpier he can endorse the cheeto company which he cherishes oh so much. Eventually he may earn back the money you wasted on him .

  107. Three comments after last nights Utah – Mavs game:
    1) Mark – better wardrobe last night!
    2) Something needs to be done about Van Horn’s beard. He has the worst facial hair in the league.
    3) Darrell Armstrong is the man! I was riding him telling him he didn’t have the outside shot. He insisted he did, and 2 seconds later hit a beautiful 3-pointer from the corner…

    Comment by Matt Willes -

  108. To some of the people leaving follow up comments: Why all the Reggie bashing?

    To answer the question of whether a 20 year old in the year 2025 will know who Reggie was? Possibly not, but only if he has never visited the hall of fame.

    But you guys have fun bashing #31. No the Pacers never won any championships, but they were an elite team during much or Reggie’s tenure. The best Pacer team in that era, took the Bulls to the brink. A couple years later post MJ, they ran into Shaq and Kobe playing as well as they ever played (at least together). Before those teams 98 & 2000, the Pacers were an overachieving team beating better teams in the playoffs and barely missing a couple of Conference Final upsets.

    99 was the only real disappointing playoff run in all of Reggie’s years.

    I’m happy to see Reggie doing the TV work and perhaps his game commentary will be more up to the standards that Mr. Cuban is looking for.

    Comment by grizwald -

  109. I think ratings would go way up if ALL the analysis (including in game) were a little more cerebral. The cliches and generalizations are fine for folks who are new to basketball but most basketball fans know a little about the game but wouldn’t mind learning more.

    It’s like when I watch football…I know the basics but never played myself and thus am fascinated by all the technical analysis that goes on during the game. Basketball is a little fast paced for that but you could certainly do a quick analysis coming out of a timeout and certainly during halftime.

    Listening to Kenny Smith is brutal. The guy talks and talks but doesn’t say anything interesting. Charles is hilarious so cut him some slack Cuban. Greg Anthony on ESPN will give some good insight once in a while.

    Otherwise, everyone just throws out cliches. I remember listening to George Raveling commentating on some Cal Berkeley games while I was in college. He once said, “If we had more men like Shareef Saddam-Raheer during Vietnam we would have won the war.” He pronounced Shareef’s name at least 10 different ways during the game. Every crappy broadcaster is still miles above George “Rambling.” Count your blessing Cuban that you didn’t hire that guy.
