    Didn't anticipate us losing to the Bobcats, but knew this team was going to struggle at some point.

    We have the pacers, Cavs, warriors, knicks, and lakers coming up i expect us to go 3-2 during that stretch, maybe 4-1.

    I really like the lineup of Collison, Mayo, Jones, Brand, and Kaman. Very balanced.

    Realize this team will look completely different with matrix and Dirk. Mayo is ballin and him and Collison will have more lanes with Dirk back. Kaman is a great post scorer but his defense lacks.Maybe Sarge can grow into that defensive stopper.

    Mayo and Collison having to grow up here without Dirk around should help later in the season.

    Still hard to say how this team will look with all it's parts since they haven't had them yet.

    I do trust RC to get the best out of this collection of talent which is likely 4th or 5th best in the WC.


    Once Dirk comes back Kaman could go for 25 a night. That guy is incredibly skilled. He is both goofy-looking(hey, so am i) and a terrible defender but he may be the most skilled center in basketball right now.

    Collison was good enough to start over Russell Westbrook in college. He can play the game.

    I think we should have signed Kmart. He is a good defender for a big and brings toughness,guess he wants too much tho.

    rebounding still an issue. DC is struggling but we have a stud in Mayo. Cant wait for Dirk. I still want to sign Kmart.

    Mayo is playing incredible right now. Just saw this post on a Mavs forum.

    He just needs a steady player around him in the games and especially at practice.
    The 5 straight turnovers by Dallas to lose the game vs Philly was the final straw. You have to be able to at least execute simple entry pass.

    I see Gortat or Bynum at Center next year. Hopefully Collison grows and learns from Fisher.

    Mayo was a great pickup. He has star written on him. If we could get a decent starting PG likem Bledsoe from Clippers and a better defensive center. This team could be special. It may be special once Dirk comes back anyway.

    I would love it if we got Bledsoe. That guy can ball, I have no idea why he gets so few minutes.

    Chris Paul is why he gets lil minutes. He is FA though. Cubes may get him. We need a Center though. Kaman would be a good back up big on PF and C but not a starter . His defense lacks bad.

    Ya we need a defensive big when Dirk comes back. Utah has some to spare.

    The hope was that this team could tread water until Dirk gets back.
    So far so good. They would be in the playoffs if the season ended today.

    I agree that they'll need a better defensive big to do any real damage though.
    Otherwise, these guys will most likely be one and done, but also out of the lottery.

    Go Mavs

    I'm happy with the team we put together. We did an outstanding job considering the circumstances.
