Quoteboard: Dallas starting five can score with the best, needs to improve defense

Putting quotes to the main storylines from the Dallas 108-103 win against Memphis in the final preseason home game. Jameer Nelson yelled something across the room, interrupting Tyson Chandler while he was talking to the media -- and then Nelson did it again, just to make sure Chandler knew it was on purpose. "You gonna come over here and grab a mic?" he answered back. Minutes later, Dirk was singing in the shower and you could hear it from the locker room. When he finally came out, he laughed about getting blocked on a 3-pointer then a dunk on the same play. The Mavericks locker room was in...

Tyson Chandler: These Mavs as talented as 2011 champs

DALLAS – The 2011 champions will serve as a measuring stick for Dallas Mavericks teams for decades to come. Center Tyson Chandler, a key piece on the title team who was welcomed back to Dallas after a three-year sabbatical in New York, believes this season’s edition of the Mavs stands up well to that standard, at least on paper. “Yeah, you definitely could make that argument,” Chandler said during an appearance on 103.3 FM ESPN’s “The Afternoon Show with Cowlishaw and Mosley” on Tuesday.

Player Preview: Will Tyson Chandler give us déjà vu?

Tyson Chandler is back in Dallas. We're trying to be just cautiously optimistic but the excitement is hard to contain. Oh Tyson, we hardly knew ye. Waitaminnit...yes we did. In fact, in the short time you were here, we got to know you so well we wept when you left. Because you know...the ring...precious.Tyson Chandler came to the Mavericks after the team's 20 years of mediocrity at center. While other Texas teams enjoyed big men such as David Robinson and Hakeem Olajuwon, Dallas fans were dealt Shawn Bradley. Not since James Donaldson in the late ‘80's did the Mavericks have a...

Tyson Chandler doesn’t look much different than he did in 2011, and that’s good news

It’s Tyson Chandler’s birthday and the rookies serenaded him with a version of Happy Birthday at practice today. Afterward, coach Rick Carlisle was singing nothing but praises about how the 32-year-old center has looked in his return to the Dallas Mavericks …

Tyson Chandler feels as explosive, energetic as ever

DALLAS – The rookies in the Dallas Mavericks’ training camp sang “Happy Birthday” to Tyson Chandler during Thursday morning’s practice to help the center celebrate turning 32 years old. As far as coach Rick Carlisle is concerned, Chandler looks just like the springy 28-year-old big man who played such a critical role in the Mavs’ title campaign during his previous stint in Dallas. “Looks pretty similar to me,” said Carlisle, who will carefully manage Chandler’s minutes in an attempt to keep him as fresh as possible, as was the case in 2010-11.

Can Mavs make Al-Farouq Aminu a defensive stopper?

DALLAS – Tyson Chandler has one piece of advice for Al-Farouq Aminu, his young new teammate with the Dallas Mavericks: Study all the tape you can find of Scottie Pippen playing defense. That’s the kind of potential the Mavs see in the 24-year-old Aminu on that end of the floor. “I think he can do a lot of those same things,” Chandler said. “He’s an incredible athlete.” Aminu, a former eighth overall pick who signed with the Mavs for the veteran’s minimum this summer, unquestionably has all the physical attributes to excel as a defender in the NBA.

What they said: Carlisle, Dirk, Chandler and Parsons at media day

What they said: Carlisle, Dirk, Chandler and Parsons at media day

Breaking the quotes into the categories you care about. Media day was yesterday, and the players talked. Here's what they said, organized into several prevalent topics. Jonathan Tjarks and Doyle Rader both helped with transcription, while I set up the post. Parsons: Sup. Tyson Chandler is back Chandler: It feels great to be back. At first it felt a little surreal. Dirk: Looking forward to playing again with him obviously. He's a great defensive player. He erases a lot of my mistakes. He's a great rim protector, he finishes above the rim, he's very athletic and he gets up and down the...

Meet Geoff Case, the man who designed the new Dallas Maverick alternate jerseys

Geoff took the time to answer some questions for us, including how Kanye West helped and his winning reaction in a Shell gas station. Geoff Case was the man of the hour at the American Airlines Center yesterday, which is saying something -- he beat Mark Cuban, Chandler Parsons and Tyson Chandler for that honor. He was the winner of the first ever fan contest for a professional team's jersey and got to be front-and-center at the Mavericks' press conference yesterday (he's in the lead photo on the left). The $1,000 and 2015-16 season tickets that Cuban awarded him at the press conference is...

Cuban admits mistake on Chandler? Kind of

DALLAS – The first question a fan asked at the press conference/pep rally held Tuesday by the Dallas Mavericks was directed to Tyson Chandler, but Mark Cuban provided the answer. “Let’s just say I learn from my mistakes,” Cuban said, replying to an inquiry about whether the big man’s second stay in Dallas would last longer than one season. Cuban’s choice to allow Chandler to leave in free agency after the Mavs’ lone championship season will always be one of the most controversial decisions in Dallas sports history.
