And now we turn our attention to the Mavs

With the Rangers being in the way, I totally missed the pre-season - which I never care for much anyway, and even the first few games of the season. I finally watched me some Mavs last night and they pulled out a 1 pt win in Denver.. They're 3-1 on the young season so far. Chandler is a big improvement over Damp.

Mavs struggled in Pre-season but they were just getting their chemistry together. They alook alright but with them you never know. Roddy is still injured so they are missing a huge piece of this team. If Chandler can stay healthy for the entire season and they get Roddy back in the lineup soon they will be a one of the top teams in the west.

I'm liking what I'm seeing from Chandler. That's nice tandem to have at center with he and Haywood. Although I think Haywood is going to start being a bitch about it so we'll see how that goes.

They're still a jump shooting team and that's not going to take them very deep in the playoffs. Hopefully Carlisle let's the rookie play this year. I'm also looking forward to Roddy B. getting more play time.

Unfortunately I think we're looking at another one and done.

I predict it will be OKC and L.A. in the conference finals with the winner playing Orlando or Boston.

i like our forwards and the improvement at center is huge but i think we suck at guard.

Kidd, Terry, Barea, Roddy B, D. Jones, Stevenson.

Stevenson, i'll just ignore. from what i saw the guy is good on defense but i doubt he will see much play other than junk time.

i still have Kidd ranked #1 because he is a good point guard. if he can stay decent with a 3 pointer, cool. personally Iíd cut his minutes to sub 30 all season. keep him a bit more fresh for the playoffs and reduce risk of injury, but mostly to give more minutes to the 2 young guys.

Terry can put up 20 up on any given night so i still think he is okay offensively but he is very streaky and as soon as it gets crunch time, a small bit of defense makes him fade away. Then his defense is pretty bad to boot.

Barea may handle the ball and penetrate paint easy but he canít do anything with the ball once he gets there. get stuffed or make an errant pass and cause a turnover. he is the worst defensive player we have. he provides a spark off the bench so i have no problem with him getting 8 minsÖ 23 minutes however? HELL NO.

i have big hopes w/ Roddy B. this year. Iíd like to see him get all of bareaís minutes. This kid has the ability to make a difference here. I wish they would work on his defense. He just needs playing time.

it would be great if Dominique Jones develops, but if Carlisle doesnít involve him in the season early, then he will just be a prospect/junk time player this year.

It will be Mavs vs Heat+Stern/Celtics+Stern.

No, Just kidding the Mavs won't make it because of coach Jim Carey.

Mavs go 82-0 and get swept by the Clippers in the 1st round.










I love my mavs, but i dont think we'll ever win a championship anytime soon.

Seeing as there are super teams in LA, Boston and Miami, I have to agree.

But, you never know. A scrappy group of guys who have fun on the court and off, and work hard can do anything.

Besides, there are what 2 players from that 2006 team? The mental aspect of losing to Miami has to be gone by now.

I wish i could get more excited this year but except for a very small upgrade at the center position, it's just the same old team.

Maybe i still have a Ranger hangover.

We won that series, everyone in the world knows that.. except anyone thats a Miami Heat fan.

That was a down year but we were clearly the best team back then. If Puppet Master Stern didnt have beef with Cuban, we would have won that series 4-1.

If you sneeze on Wade or look at Wade in the eyeball its an automatic foul.

I still remember Dirk standing there and Wade throws an elbow at him and its on Dirk LOL.
