You can't call what A's did a "collapse." They were WC team. Now, Dallas Mavericks in '07 vs. Warriors? That was a collapse.

Dwain Price

PG Jameer Nelson and the Orlando Magic combined to win 43 games the past two seasons. Or six games less than the #Mavs won last season.

Dwain Price

The Westgate Superbook -- a Las Vegas sportsbook -- predicts the #Mavs will win 49.5 games this year. That ties for 7th place on its list.

Dwain Price

About the #Mavs, Jameer Nelson said: "It’s just one of those organizations that you hear about that guys say great things about."

Dwain Price

"We would like to take some pressure off Monta (Ellis). He had the ball so much in his hands last year.'' -- #Mavs coach Rick Carlisle

Lang Greene

I remember reading a lot of commentary saying the Mavs reached on Monta Ellis in free agency ... but the man has balled and silenced many

Lang Greene

In another example of the game not being played on stacks of loose leaf ... Monta Ellis has been a steal for Dallas Mavericks' program

Per Rick Carlisle, the @Dallas Mavericks went through a contact defensive practice. They'll go non-contact tonight and work their offensive sets.

Jeff Wade

D'Antoni just unfollowed you RT @Earl K. Sneed The @Dallas Mavericks stressed DEF in Day 1 of training camp. Something is wrong if your team didn't.

Dwain Price

#Mavs finished their morning workouts on the 1st day of training camp. They'll have another practice this evening.

Earl K. Sneed

The @Dallas Mavericks have a two-a-day scheduled for today. And as Rick Carlisle said last week, today will be defense-heavy.

Earl K. Sneed

First day of @Dallas Mavericks training camp today. What story lines are you most interested in seeing play out during camp and preseason?

Chris Sheridan

The #Rockets GM Daryl Morey and #Mavs owner Mark Cuban trade barbs, fueling rivalry over 2nd-best team in Texas #NBA sheridanhoops.com/2014/09/30/sh-…

Dwain Price

Asked if he is a bully, #Mavs owner Mark Cuban smiled and said: "I am a bully. I just can’t help myself.''

Dwain Price

#Mavs coach Rick Carlisle said his first practice Tuesday will consist mainly of defense. They go nowhere this season without it.

Dwain Price

Making up for the 3-pt shooting of Jose Calderon and Vince Carter -- and the solid defense of Shawn Marion -- are challenges for the #Mavs.

Dwain Price

"I’m looking forward to having three good years.'' -- #Mavs F Dirk Nowitzki on the three-year, $25 million contract he signed in July.

Dwain Price

"In social media he is. He hasn’t stepped up to the plate yet.'' -- #Mavs owner Mark Cuban on if #Rockets GM Daryl Morey is outgunned

Dwain Price

“I’m ready for that next step of my career. If they haven’t seen me, they will this year.’’ -- #Mavs F Chandler Parsons

Dwain Price

#Mavs coach Rick Carlisle has a lot of weapons at his disposal. It'll be interesting to see how he'll make it all work.

Earl K. Sneed

Not sure I've ever been as hyped for a preseason game as I am for the Mavs-Rockets showdown Oct. 7. Oh, the drama...

Dwain Price

“I’m looking forward to playing with him again, obviously.'' -- #Mavs F Dirk Nowitzki on playing with C Tyson Chandler
