Dirk Nowitzki told members of the media that his return to action is still about two weeks away from being able to run and shoot the basketball.

He is still not sure when his 2012-13 season debut for the Dallas Mavericks.

The 34-year-old German had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee October 19, the first surgery for the 7-footer, who is in his 15th NBA season.

The 11-time All-Star is recovering from knee surgery. He said that before he can start practicing & playing again, the swelling has to be 100 percent gone.

Texas Rangers becoming dominant AL team; headed to Series 2nd year in a row

(courtesy of MLBpressbox.com)

The Texas Rangers had some important people in the stands Saturday night in Arlington that they did not want to disappoint.

Former team owner and U.S. president George W. Bush, Dallas Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki and current team owner Nolan Ryan watched as the Rangers clobbered the Detroit Tigers in the American League Championship Series.

They are the first AL team to repeat as champions in a decade.

The explosive offense of the Rangers used a nine-run third inning to power them to a 15-5 romp over Detroit that allowed them to get to the World Series a second straight year. They won the ALCS 4 games to 2.

The franchise that started as the expansion Washington Senators and moved to Texas back in 1972 had failed to advance to the World Series in its first 49 years of existence. The Rangers won the AL title in 2010 but lost to the San Francisco Giants in the World Series.

The Rangers rode the hot bat of its rising star Nelson Cruz. He set a postseason record with his sixth home run of the series.

Cruz collected 13 RBI’s in the series, which is another postseason record, and was voted as the ALCS MVP.

Another star for Texas is the longest tenured player on the roster, Michael Young. Young, who earlier in the season wanted to be traded, has flourished in the DH role. Last night, he hit a home run, and knocked home five runs. Young has played with Texas for 11 years and is 34 years old.

NBA FINALS: Dallas stuns Miami to win NBA title, 105-93

Dirk Nowitzki has certainly paid his dues as an NBA Superstar. He only had one more accomplishment to put on his resume and that was a world championship.

His resume is now complete as the Dallas Mavericks avenged their 2006 NBA Finals loss to Miami, by defeating the “Big Three” of Lebron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami, 105-95 on Sunday night in Game 6 to stun all of the so-called experts who didn’t feel thay had a chance against the Heat.

The Mavs did the unthinkable winning two games in Miami and three in a row to close the series out at 4 games to 2.

Nowitzki, who did not have a good shooting night from the floor (9 0f 27) scored 21 points, many in the clutch, was named the Finals MVP.

The most embarrassed and disappointed player was LeBron James, who all but guaranteed a championship last summer when he made “The Decision” live on ESPN last summer to leave Cleveland for Miami. Now is resume’ is still without a championship after eight years in the NBA.

James led Miami with  21 points, Chris Bosh scored 19, Mario Chalmers had 18 and Dwayne Wade chipped in with 17.

Miami had several chances to take control of the game, but wasted every last one. They were 20 of 33 in free throws, allowed the Mavs to score 27 points off turnovers and could not get the key rebounds late in the game.

Jason Terry led the Mavericks with 27 points.

NBA FINALS Game 2: Mavericks get out of Miami tied at 1-1 after stunning rally

 

The Dallas Mavericks seemed to be out of Game 2 in Miami on Thursday night at 88-73 with 7:15 remaining in regulation.

The Mavs turned up the defense and held to Heat to just one field goal from that point forward, a 3-point goal by Mario Chalmers to tie the game at 93-93 with 24.5 seconds to go.

After a timeout, Jason Kidd, the oldest guard on the court, got the ball to Dirk Nowitzki who made the game-winning layup with 3.6 seconds to left and the Mavericks ended a long streak of bad luck in Miami. They head home with the series tied at 1-1.

Dwayne Wade scored 36 points for Miami. His game-winning attempt from three-point land missed.

Losing close games is nothing new for the Heat. During the season, they were 5-14 in games decided by five points or less.

Game 3 is in Dallas on Sunday and if the Mavs can win all three games, they’ll be the new NBA champions.

This year’s NBA format is 2-3-2 with Miami holding homecourt advantage with hosting four games.
