Point Guard Shane Larkin Returns To Practice for the Dallas Mavericks

+Read full article

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

When Shane Larkin went down with an injury you could almost feel the collective sigh come from Dallas. It has been rough going out in Big D, and ever since the championship there has been one foul decision after another.

Mark Cuban’s actions during the Deron Williams recruitment were absolutely horrrendous, and Cuban honestly gets what he deserves here. It does not stop me from feeling really bad for Dirk though; he did get his ring and have his moment. It just feels weird that he is no longer a relevant player; is it wrong I want the Mavs to trade him?

Thanks to the tweet below for the update and here is hoping Larkin can give Dirk some help this year, because it was rough going last year.

Larkin lit up the ACC last season, but there are questions about his size and if he is injury prone that is not a great sign. He is the son of Major Leaguer Barry Larkin so you can bet that we will be rooting for the young man here at Rant Sports. Dirk could certainly use some help, and if you cannot love that furry German then you just do not love basketball. You feel me folks? If not no worries.

Dirk Nails Game-Winner, Gets Love From Kobe

Kobe Bryant wasn't able to lace up for the Los Angeles Lakers against the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday night, but he still managed to make the highlight reels on multiple occasions. After Dirk Nowitzki nailed what turned out to be the game-winning jumper, he stumbled backward into Bryant and received a pat of approval. This encounter is the definition of the saying 'game recognizes game' as the two players are both legends and future Hall of Famers.

Josh Smith Fakes Dirk Nowitzki Out of His Shoes

Josh Smith has returned to the Houston Rockets via trade, and he made the most of his first game back. He scored 16 points off the bench, including this drive on Dirk Nowitzki that made Smith look like Hakeem Olajuwon. Could Ty Lawson and Josh Smith be the spark duo off the bench that rejuvenates this Rockets team?

Watch Kings' Rondo Attempt To Trip Mavs' Williams

Last night's game between the Sacramento Kings and Dallas Mavericks was one of the most entertaining of the season. It was a back-and-forth contest that ended on a Deron Williams three-pointer as time expired in double-overtime. Unfortunately, Williams almost didn't get to take that shot as Rajon Rondo attempted to trip him from the bench earlier in the game which could have caused serious injury. Rondo should be suspended for his actions.
