If Chandler Parsons had a midseason MVP vote, it would go to former teammate James Harden. "For sure. He's the best player in basketball right now," Parsons said before his Dallas Mavericks fell 99-94 to Harden's Houston Rockets on Wednesday night. "The things he's doing are incredible. The scouting report is focused in on stopping him and you see he's still getting 30 a game. It's impressive." ESPN.com

O'Neal has the Mavericks' offer to join them whenever he makes the decision to resume his playing career. He's been sitting out this season, but he has been working out and going through treatments to get himself into game-ready condition. The Mavericks, a source said, still feel confident about their chances of landing the 6-11 O'Neal, who has played 18 NBA seasons. They have held a roster spot open specifically for him.

There is interest from other teams around the league, and the Mavericks are making sure they keep tabs on the waiver wire and the possibility of some players whose seasons will end soon in China who could return to the NBA. But O'Neal, 36, is the No. 1 target, the source said. The window is open as long as needed for O'Neal to make a decision on when to return, but the most likely scenario is that he would join the Mavericks sometime between now and the All-Star break, which begins Feb. 12.

In response to Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban saying the NBA should no longer allow fans to vote for who starts in the All-Star game, the league has revealed information that indicates the voting system is blossoming. "The NBA confirmed All-Star balloting saw a 28% increase in fan voting this year with more than 25 million votes cast,’’ a league source said. "The NBA, unlike MLB, is a digital-only program with no paper ballot in arenas. "This year, for the first time, the NBA made every player eligible to be voted for, so that obviously spread the votes out more than ever before amongst many more players. Also, the NBA started balloting later this year, so the voting window was 27 days shorter this year (67 to 40 days) and the numbers were still up by 28%.’’ Fort Worth Star-Telegram
