Holiday Links Galore
It's Christmas eve, and DallasDedicated is here to stuff your stocking with a few links from around the Dallas sports area...
*Dirk tells the Dallas Morning News that he wouldn't think twice about taking a pay cut in 2010 if it meant that the Mavs could use the money to make the team reach his goal of a championship. This really shows just how true of a team player Dirk is. While LeBron is talking about where he may end up come 2010 and that he would go to Europe for $50 million, Dirk acts like he always has...selfless.
*Speaking of the 2010 free agency, Mark Cuban has some plans of his own.
*What drives Cowboys third-string turned starter Tashard Choice? The fact that 10 running backs were selected over him.
*Proof that Santa is real: Last night, the Dallas Stars not only held their opponent to 2, but scored 8 (!) of their own!
*T.O. is talking again, but this time it is that Roy Williams needs the ball more. Welcome to the club Owens!
*We all take for granted the fact that professional athletes have familes and personal lives of their own. The Mavs play on Christmas night tomorrow, which has got to be distracting to have to "work" on a holiday. The Mavs, however, consider it a mixed blessing.
*Marc Colombo got an early Christmas present of his own, a four-year deal.
*Gerald Green sighting! He talks to the FW Star-Telegram about his lack of playing time as of late.
*Stars may be last in the Western Conference, but their play has picked up and winger Loui Eriksson is last week's First Star for the NHL.
*Is Cowboys offensive coordinator Jason Garrett in a hot seat of his own?
*While the main page of DallasDesperados.com says that 2009 Season Tickets are cheaper than ever, you should know that the AFL has suspended the upcoming season. So if you bought your friend some AFL tickets for Christmas, you might wanna reconsider putting that under the tree.
*Not only is Jason Terry playing out of his mind this season, he also was given the NBA Community Assist Award for the month of November. Nice goin, Jet!
*Sergei Zubov is out for the season, so is Morrow, yet DM News writer Mike Heika argues that the Stars could climb the standings pretty easily if they get a hot streak going, because no other team has had a hot streak? Ummm, works for me
Merry Christmas to you all, enjoy yourselves. Mavs tip-off at 9:30!
Coming this week: Who is the Most Valuable Player out of all Dallas sports? We will analyze it all.
