1. CUBAN ON JAY MOHR: Mark Cuban stopped by Jay Mohr Sports yesterday to chat Parsons/Morey and more interestingly, the different dichotomies of owning a team in the NBA versus MLB.
2. NEW YEAR, NEW RULES: The NBA will institute new baseline safety rules for the coming season. These have been under discussion for a long time and don't appear to have any connection to the incident in the Team USA scrimmage where Paul George was injured.
3. MAVS AND THE DRAFT: "What draft?" I hear you saying. I usually shake my head at Mavs "Draft Talk" as well. But David Lord has a few detailed thoughts about Mark Cuban's comments that the Mavericks take the draft seriously.
4. CHATTING WITH DEVIN: Devin Harris will be doing a Q&A on CyberDust today at 1:45 p.m. central. Mark your calendars and update your smartphone apps accordingly.
5. APPARENTLY THERE'S ALSO A CONTEST TO MEET CHANDLER PARSONS: Some of you might be interested.
I am apparently just in in it for the fashion though.
@dallasmavs Is the t-shirt on the model there available for purchase somewhere? I adore it.— Rebecca Lawson (@beccaaftersix) August 22, 2014
