What’s in store for the Mavs in 2020-21? Dirk Nowitzki sees parallels to Dallas’ early 2000s teams

As the final seconds of the 2019-20 NBA season ticked down Sunday night in the Walt Disney World bubble, a jumble of contenders jostled for first-blush reaction.

Hail to the champion Lakers, especially fourth-time conqueror LeBron James.

Kudos to the NBA and its players for doggedly and rather ingeniously salvaging a season that was all but lost to COVID-19.

Hallelujah, it’s over!

Early Terrible wine bar a funky-casual winner

Note: Since March, in recognition of the extraordinary challenges faced by restaurants during the coronavirus pandemic, Susie Davidson Powell’s reports on the dining scene have been presented with the label “Critic’s Notebook.”  With indoor dining reopened for more than three months locally and more restaurants again offering full-service meals at full price, Powell’s return to reviewing will assess the dining experience even as restaurants operate with state-mandated restrictions in place.
