  2. Darren Collison, Chris Kaman should help offense

    Jeff Caplan

    The Dallas Mavericks' "flow" offense last season didn't exactly live up to its name. It was often a grind, ranking 19th in scoring (95.8 points a game), 19th in field-goal percentage (44.3 percent) and, particularly telling, 15th in assists (20.9). ...

    Jeff Caplan

    Ninth in a 15-part series ranking the Mavericks' 2011-12 roster in importance of bringing back next season. Surely one can look around the NBA and field a lineup of unfulfilled careers. With the Dallas Mavericks that search stops with Rodrigue Bea...

  8. Countdown: No. 8 Vince Carter

    Jeff Caplan

    Eighth in a 15-part series ranking the Mavericks' 2011-12 roster in importance of bringing back next season. Bringing in Vince Carter last season, even at a buyer-friendly price, felt like a reach for a team with an already aging roster. Anyone wh...

    Jeff Caplan

    Sixth in a 15-part series ranking the Mavericks' 2011-12 roster in importance of bringing back next season. The curious case of Kelenna Azubuike as a member of the Dallas Mavericks started March 22 when the club released athletic big man Sean Will...

  11. Countdown: No. 11 Brendan Haywood

    Jeff Caplan

    Fifth in a 15-part series ranking the Mavericks' 2011-12 roster in importance of bringing back next season. Every athlete should have it as good as Brendan Haywood. Eleven seasons into a serviceable, yet hardly spectacular career, the 7-footer out...

    Jeff Caplan

  13. Countdown: No. 15 Lamar Odom

    Jeff Caplan

    First in a 15-part series ranking the Mavericks' 2011-12 roster in importance of bringing back next season. The offseason certainly arrived much sooner than anyone could have predicted, just like Lamar Odom's premature exit from the Dallas Maveric...

  14. Heat didn't watch, but heard banner ceremony

    Jeff Caplan

    DALLAS -- It certainly is odd for the loser of the NBA Finals to begin the following season in the champion's house. It's a little awkward, too, considering the pomp and circumstance surrounding the home team's banner raising and final celebration of...

  15. Countdown: Ranking the Mavs -- No. 2

    Jeff Caplan

    Here we are, down to two. It's hard to keep up the suspense of the Countdown from here. That's OK because the real suspense comes next season when we see how many of the Dallas Mavericks veterans can give it their all one more time. Last season, the ...

  16. Countdown: Ranking the Mavs -- No. 3

    Jeff Caplan

    OK, things are getting tough now that the Countdown is down to the Big Three. Actually it wasn't all that easy placing Caron Butler at No. 4. I had thoughts about ranking him higher because of the boost he could potentially deliver as a healthy playe...
