Video moment: Mavericks, Cuban brace for another playoff

The NBA playoffs begin tomorrow and just about a year ago, the big story was how the Dallas Mavericks, with the best record in the NBA (.817 winning percentage), were eliminated by Golden State in the first round. Well, the Warriors didn't make the playoffs this year but Dallas is back for another helping of humble pie opening as the No. 7 seed in the West against New Orleans.

The Mavs -- typically strong in the regular season -- are the perennial underachievers in the NBA playoffs having let a championship slip through their fingers two years ago against Miami. Losing to Phoenix the year before that. To Sacramento the year before that. To San Antonio the year before that. Well, you get the idea.

And the focal point for these spring swoons are the Mavs' high-profile, smooth dancin' owner Mark Cuban and his favorite player, Dirk Nowitzki. Here singer-songwriter Ryan Parker lampoons another Maverick stampede into the playoffs.
