Bizarro Mavs Donuts And A Red Bull Chaser
DONUT 1: SI ranks the NBA's top players. Dirk came in at No. 4 … behind two guys who just got ass-whipped by him. Let's talk about this!
DONUT 2: Delonte West applies for a job at Home Depot. Very funny … unless you are the in-need-of-a-job applicant who gets beaten out for the opening by this clown.
DONUT 3: DallasBasketball.com is proud to be partnering up with our long-time friends and Mavs-lovin' partners at PLAYERS REVOLUTION , who are assisting with the running of the 1-on-1 global tournament, Red Bull King of the Rock. The Dallas qualifiers will be August 27th. Winners receive a free trip to the world championships at Alcatraz in San Francisco, and the winner there will receive $10,000. Only 64 spots are available, so if you or someone you know would be interested, get in touch with Ryan today at Mavs-lovin' partners at PLAYERS REVOLUTION .
Yes, I'll see you on Aug. 27. And yes, I plan on getting some free Red Bull out of this (vodka apparently not included.)
DONUT 4: An example of Donnie Nelson being willing and able to think out of the box: What if Bruce Pearl doesn't have to choose between becoming the Texas Legends' coach (at $500,000) and becoming an ESPN analyst (at maybe twice that)? What if the Legends deal allows him to do both?
DONUT 5: We're gonna have a he-and-she double winner!
In the last few weeks I've reached into the DallasBasketball.com Prize Closet and handed out $25 giftcards, DB.com gear and a signed Dirk Nowitzki trading card.

DONUT 6: Come join us on Twitter!
DONUT 7: Want a ride home on the champion's plane?
Endless gold in there.
DONUT 8: Reggie Miller might go to work for the Pacers. But that's not the impactful part of the story here. The impactful part of the story is it means he'll be off our TVs.
DONUT 9: Want MORE Mavs? Sign on up! It's about a dime-a-day for the very best in Mavs coverage from DB.com. And yes, we keep it rolling all summer long ... You won't get 'em covered like you get 'em covered here! Go Mavs and Go Premium!
DONUT 10: We get some lovely letters here at DB.com. Let's reach into the mailbag ...
I'm the guy you fixed up with Mavs tickets from MavCowTickets ... I've been a Mavs Premium Member for about four months but a reader of your stuff for longer. I love your writing; it's as if you wrote a Pulitzer Prize winner every day in the Finals.
"I must admit when I first started listening to you on the radio I hated your arrogant ass. But now? This is the best 10 cents I've ever spent -- with the exception of when I bought Sylvia Goldenstein's milk at third-grade lunch.
Love ya, man ... Gary G
DONUT 11: Any Friend of the Mavs on Facebook is a DB.com Friend of Fish.
DONUT 12: I'm amused by the national NFL writer who almost certainly is revealing a bias (and, I hope, not a lack of knowledge) when he says, "Maybe (the defensive) coordinator wasn't the problem in Dallas'' as he lauds Wade Phillips for leading the Houston defense to a "franchise preseason record with seven sacks vs. the Jets.''
Do I really need to detail the (at least) four glaring problems with that proclamation?
