Welcome to Dirkology, a site where I write about the Dallas Mavericks. This is the first post of the site, which seems monumental, yet I have nothing to accomplish here in the moment, so I’ll keep things pithy.
Every game of the season will be examined to some degree. Interesting things manifest themselves during a game in any number of ways, from a beautiful backdoor cut leading to an easy two points to a hall of famer getting thrown out of the arena by the team’s owner. If something catches my eye, I’ll try to explain why here.
The site is named Dirkology because a) I love science and (more importantly) b) I love Dirk. My first NBA memory is him getting whacked by Manu in Game 7 of the 2006 WC semis, sending the game into overtime (where the Mavs eventually won), and I was hooked. Watching him operate as a 7″ jump shooting demigod was how I learned basketball.
