"A week is a long time for me without playing," Nowitzki said. "It's not that weird, really, because I'm in practice.

"But the weirdest thing is not traveling, knowing you're not with the team, knowing they're on the road and they've been playing games and you can't even watch them."

"Obviously you have a lot of energy left during the day that you have to use somewhere else," Nowitzki said. "But obviously I'm anxious to get back out there."

And Art Garcia writes about the Mavs serious and businesslike attitude this preseason. I'm glad to hear the players don't seem to be to down on themselves, but it's equally important to stay loose and have fun.
