Dallas Mavericks: The case for Luka Doncic making the 2019 NBA All-Star Game

It may seem like it’s too soon, but Dallas Mavericks rookie Luka Doncic is deserving of a spot in the 2019 NBA All-Star Game. There isn’t a basketball fan in this or almost any other country that isn’t wildly excited about the incredibly talented and infectiously joyful Luka Doncic.

Heyman: Rangers have contacted Buchholz

We have an actual sort-of rumor involving the Rangers, after what seems like an eon of silence Texas Rangers rumors: Clay Buchholz, Texas native and MLB free agent starting pitcher, and the Rangers have been in contact, per Jon Heyman on Twitter. It says something about how dead things are right now that this is worthy of hitting the siren and turning on the flashing red lights to alert everyone of a Rangers rumor. Buchholz has starred in such other Rangers rumors as “Texas wants Buchholz for Jarrod Saltamacchia or Taylor Teagarden, but Red Sox are offering Michael Bowden or Daniel...

Bad Contracts Could Correct Dallas Stars Scoring Woes

Bad Contracts Could Correct Dallas Stars Scoring Woes

Yup, you read that right. In this article, I try to argue that trading for Milan Lucic is a viable way to improve the 2018-19 Dallas Stars. They said Nikola Tesla was crazy too, you know. The trade for Andrew Cogliano, if there is any sense to this front office, is only the beginning. With Western Conference playoff spots improbably still within reach, a sputtering-yet-fixable flaw (the offense), and an eleven-day gap between games, now is the perfect time for GM Jim Nill to work a little magic. The Dallas Stars need help in their top six, ideally on the wing. Options are out there, good...

Eyes on the enemy: Eagles players reportedly view Carson Wentz as “selfish” and “egotistical”

Eyes on the enemy: Eagles players reportedly view Carson Wentz as “selfish” and “egotistical”

Trouble may be brewing with a Cowboys division rival. The Philadelphia Eagles are a division rival, and in 2018 an inferior one, of the Dallas Cowboys. Thankfully, their year as Super Bowl Champions is about to be unseated by a new team on the throne. As Cowboys fans it’s a lot of fun to openly talk trash and mock the Eagles. This was certainly more true this season because Dallas swept Philadelphia (in case you missed it, the Cowboys swept the Eagles). We give each other a hard time because that’s what rivals do. All that being said what happens to the Eagles (as well as the Giants and...

Doncic is the can't-miss guy. Heiskanen is greatness you don't notice. How 2 teenage stars are making Dallas theirs

Doncic is the can't-miss guy. Heiskanen is greatness you don't notice. How 2 teenage stars are making Dallas theirs

In advancing through the press boxes of life, we find ourselves cheering (quietly of course) first for the players older than we are. Later it becomes the coaches older than we are. I'm already starting to miss Kansas State's Bill Snyder.The opposite of all this is to be around the Mavericks and the Stars in the 2018-19 season. One team is led by Luka Doncic, a 19-year-old European superstar figuratively setting the basketball world on fire with nightly 25-point games and highlight-worthy assists. And the All-Star on the other team is younger than Luka.In fact, Miro Heiskanen, the Finnish...

Why Jason Garrett calling plays again would be a good thing

Why Jason Garrett calling plays again would be a good thing

It’s been six years since Garrett called plays, but don’t forget how good he was at it. Sunday was supposed to just be a day for football fans to watch the four best offenses in the NFL compete for the chance to go to the Super Bowl, but instead the Cowboys dominated headlines with their coaching changes. After hiring Jon Kitna as their new quarterbacks coach, and with Kellen Moore appearing likely to be promoted to offensive coordinator, news has also broken that Jason Garrett will probably be calling plays in 2019. Even with the changes, Cowboys sources believe Jason Garrett will...

What types of Senior Bowl players could become NFL draft prospects for the Cowboys?

It was around this time a year ago when the term "Dak-friendly" took hold, love it or hate it.Now the Cowboys' decision makers descend this week on Mobile, Ala., for the annual Senior Bowl and its three days of practices leading up to the Saturday game, with preparions for the 2019 NFL draft on full-go. And they find themselves still searching for answers on offense. Offensive coordinator Scott Linehan is out, and the search for the new play-caller is in progress.Where they want to go from here, finding players that complement quarterback Dak Prescott and beyond in a league where high-powered...

What Each First Round Pick of the Nill Era Tells Us About the Stars (Part 1)

What Each First Round Pick of the Nill Era Tells Us About the Stars (Part 1)

Management’s inability to properly draft and develop has kept the Stars from becoming anything more than a playoff bubble team. Last Thursday, the Dallas Stars managed to lose a home game against one of the worst teams in the league, the Los Angeles Kings. That always hurts, but what especially stung was that the Kings were backstopped by former Stars’ first rounder Jack Campbell. As of writing this, Campbell has played 16 games this season and currently leads the NHL in save percentage with a .932%. With Jonathan Quick starting to succumb to injuries and “old age,” Campbell could...

Ex-NFL QB explains why Cowboys' Kellen Moore is on 'fast track' to becoming a highly sought-after coach

Former NFL quarterback and current ESPN football analyst Dan Orlovsky joined 105.3 The Fan's Ben and Skin show [KRLD-FM] recently to talk all things Dallas Cowboys. Here are some highlights:(Editor's note: Interview took place prior to news that Jon Kitna is set to become the Cowboys' new QB coach.)Was Kellen Moore too young, too inexperienced to be fit as the Cowboys QB coach this season?Orlovsky: "I believe that Kellen's certainly capable, and you can make the case that that kind of showed itself this year. I know a big difference was when Amari Cooper came to town, and everyone knows the...

Film room: 3 defensive players the Cowboys should target in free agency: Is Earl Thomas worth the high price, injury risk?

Film room: 3 defensive players the Cowboys should target in free agency: Is Earl Thomas worth the high price, injury risk?

Last week we discussed a few offensive players that the Dallas Cowboys should target in free agency; therefore, it only makes sense to turn our attention toward the defensive side of the ball.The Cowboys have been stingy in free agency as of late, looking to fulfill needs without breaking the bank. However, if the Cowboys do spend 'big' on an outside free agent, it will likely be on a defender, which is interesting considering that the Dallas defense was superior to the offense last season.Having said that, it's time to examine a few defenders that the Cowboys should target in free agency,...

Who the Cowboys select as offensive coordinator could say a lot about Jason Garrett’s job security

Who the Cowboys select as offensive coordinator could say a lot about Jason Garrett’s job security

Reading tea leaves. The fact that the Dallas Cowboys are looking for a new offensive coordinator is a very big deal. Throughout his tenure Jason Garrett has rarely made a move of this size. When it has come to moving on from coordinators, whether offensive or defensive, he and the Cowboys have typically phased them out as opposed to outright firing them. Just ask Monte Kiffin, Bill Callahan, and maybe even Rod Marinelli as to how that feels. Such is not the case with Scott Linehan. While the Cowboys say they “mutually parted ways” with the former OC, they fired him, and that’s...
