    Is it possible...and I know this is crazy talk, but just consider it for a second...is it possible that the Mavs are...it's so ridiculous I almost can't let myself think it. OK, here goes...Could the Mavs just be a better team than the Lakers? Is it possible that people have underestimated Dirk? 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.

    But don't fear, there's plenty of room on the Heat bandwagon [​IMG]

    If the Lakers are out I'm rooting for the Grizz! But as much as I wanted the Heat to lose in the reg season I wouldn't mind seeing them come out of the east or maybe win it all. None of these other teams left deserve it and the ones that do (okc, bulls) I don't really like.
    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.

    And they probably never will again. Phil's out, Kobe will push to get rid of Pau and half the bench will be gone. But at least Ron'ron is locked up for 5 years.

    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.

    Shaq's playing on one leg and Rondo's playing with one arm.

    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.
