Is it possible that with the addition of Tyson Chandler and the amping up of the defense under Rick Carlile that the Mavs have actually elevated their game to a championship level? It's crazy talk I know. Just wanted to throw it out there. Lot's of talk about in here about how this all about the Lakers not living up to their potential. What if it's about the Mavs just being better?
It's Dirk. Used to be you could bully him and game plan to keep him out of the offense at the end of games. Not anymore.

Same, okc ain't bad but there's one pos on here who rears his head from time to time during playoffs (forgot his sn) who doesn't watch during the regular season (much like new mavs fans as of two days ago).

FYI, if that's directed at me I'm a former Mavs season ticket holder. I've seen nearly every one of their games this year. Just because I don't post in this thread much doesn't mean I don't watch. Very odd that you would make that kind of conclusion.

ive been a mavs fan forever. im just sick of people not giving credit to the mavs when they clearly are the better team. especially the espn analysts and jeff van gundy.

I should hope Pau does not go anywhere. Half the bench sucks so that's no lose. Ron-ron is overpaid, but he still plays well for a fourth option of even a bench guy. And there's always the Knicks to pick up a fucked up contract. If (and it is a BIG if) Bynum can stay healthy that is the anchor their team needs. Pau can play a whole season a PF. They really, really need some more bench players and a young PG who can create and score.

Honestly Monte Ellis would be a perfect match.

Also, there is the LA factor. CP3, and D12 are both out there and there is nothing saying either or both could not be wooed west, particularly if the LAkers can cut a little dead weight.

So no, not even close to done. They have a good team, they just need their own Tyson Chandler and Jason Terry. Hardly an impossible task.

Am I the only one watching this game? WTF is Westbrook doing? Homie seems to have a high opinion of himself...

Why are the grizzlies having "who can take the worst shot" contest in the 4th quarter?
post #2918 of 27226
Pau needs to be watching his brother and taking notes!!!!!!

LOLz westbrook took 24shots... glaring problem... he's turing into stephon marbury 2.0... imagine if they had chris paul? durant would average 40pts/game.

post #2922 of 27226
Omfg! And he's back in the game! WTF!

Shaq's playing on one leg and Rondo's playing with one arm.
post #2924 of 27226
Big respect to Rondo for going back out there, but he's seriously one armed. Is his back up THAT bad?

his back up, delonte west (AKA Lebron's almost stepdad) has a HUUGE ice wrap on his left shoulder. Delonte played/is playing great though.
