In this Golden Age of analytics across sports, it’s really hard to find something you can’t quantify. This is the case in every sport, especially so in basketball. Go to the league’s official stats page and you can find out everything from how fast a player is to how much one hustles on defense

Zach Lowe thinks the Mavs are a lottery team

Zach Lowe, he of the too long DID read NBA columns, is out with another effort ranking the various franchises for the coming season. It’s not a traditional numeric based ranking, however. This time it’s tier based. The Golden State Warriors, of course, sit at the top in a tier all by themselves

3 things to watch for as the Mavericks battle the Magic…again

The preseason is halfway done, and the Mavericks have had a solid showing through three games.

Following a 118-71 blowout of the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday night, Rick Carlisle stated that the Dallas Mavericks’ “really old guys” wouldn’t be making the trip to Orlando for the second night of a preseason back-to-back (can somebody explain to me why that is even a thing?). As it
