    It doesn’t seem like it, but the Mavericks have been home from the NBA bubble for six weeks.
    The Los Angeles Lakers stayed through the entirety of the restart and hoisted the NBA trophy on Sunday night with a Game 6 win over the Miami Heat. It was a triumphant end to a season like no other. No matter your opinion of the Lakers, the simple fact that the season was completed with a champion crowned is a testament to the NBA’s ingenuity.
    So now what? How can the Mavericks extend their s

    Hispanic Heritage Month: Eduardo Nájera was the first Mexican player drafted into the NBA. Now he is living The American Dream.
    By his own admission, Eduardo Najera is truly living The American Dream.
    Born in Chihuahua, Mexico — a city that’s the second-largest producer of silver in Mexico – Najera began putting the wheels in motion to strike gold in the United States after he and his family moved to San Antonio when he was just 17 years old. And Najera was wise enough to know that using his skills as a basketball player wasn’t the only way to open that pot of gold.
