Mavs Donuts: DB.com Get-Together Sept 8!
DONUT 1: Somebody posed the question the other day: Because there is a lockout, does that mean NBA coaches can also "go overseas''? In a word, "no.'' Rick Carlisle is management. Players are on that side, he's on this side. Granted, he doesn't have much to do besides bounce a tennis ball against the locker room wall in anticipation of being asked to throw out another first pitch. But he's got a job, complete with a paycheck. He won't be taking his talents anywhere.
DONUT 2: Next Thursday. The NFL opener. An excuse to have a DB.com Get-Together. Be Ready. Be There.
DONUT 3: ESPN's College GameDay is rolling into town this weekend for Saturday's Oregon-LSU game and look who is going to be on set: Mark Cuban as the guest game-picker!
I wonder if Lee Corso will quiz Cuban on whether he's ever considered running for President?
DONUT 4: Hey, give a click to some of our great DB.com partners, will ya? MIG, the Signs Etc. guys … McKinneyDentist.com, my family dentists and the finest in the land ...

DONUT 6: Come join us on Twitter!
DONUT 7: K-Bro breaks down how The International Mavs are now 7-0.
DONUT 8: Fantasy Football? I started playing in 1990. I get it. I like it. It's important to me. But NO, I do NOT want to hear you tell me about your draft, about how you stole Beanie Wells in the fourth round, about how you almost won the league last year but for that flukish Santonio Holmes fumble, and how you have a "system'' different from everyone else's.
Nor do I want to hear about your golf score, the number of girls you made out with in high school or the car wreck you craftily avoided. These are all every-day occurrences and do in any way not merit recounting.
Trust me, when you "dazzle'' the listener with the details of such mundane happenings, you cause the listener to feel like this lady:
DONUT 9: Did Gilbert Arenas drive Javaris Crittenton nuts? Or, you agree with my long-standing view that a nut is a nut waiting to crack ... and that if Crittenton is guilty, it means he was prone to eventual malevolent behavior?
DONUT 10: Any Friend of the Mavs on Facebook is a DB.com Friend of Fish.
DONUT 11: In case you missed it ... I ride shotgun with Mavs GM Donnie Nelson as he steers The Suicide Machine. Donnie is in control, people. Not even the Bruce Pearl decision is going to knock him off track.
DONUT 12: And so it begins, fueled by the geniuses on DB.com Boards in this thread: Look closely at the 1:24 mark:
Is that a hint that the Mavs are planning on a new alternate uniform?
