maybe. maybe not.
Dallas appears to be going for veteran depth again. That worked really well last year. This is what the lineup looks like from what I understand:
That's not bad.
I agree, Cuban REALLY wants to pair Williams and Dirk for a few years while Dirk still has it.
I think Dalembert from Sac is still on our radar. Haywood is a serviceable backup, but Dalembert would provide similar numbers that Chandler had in '10-'11:
Chandler: 74 games; 27:48 min/game; 10.1 pts; 9.4 rebs; 1.1 blks
Dalembert: 80 games; 24:11 min/game; 8.1 pts; 8.2 rebs; 1.5 blks
So, the starting 5 would be:
Off the bench:
Two Sixth Man award winners in JET and Odom
I really like the depth we could potentially have.
The two best lines I've heard all weekend.
This was what I was referring to yesterday but could not say anything.
Plus it was not a given this would go down, but I was sworn to secrecy nevertheless.
BTW, the Lakers are not done folks....neither are the Nets.
Lakers aren't losing Pau. I know Orlando is asking for them, but L.A. isn't giving up both they're not stupid. I see a trade like this.
Then I see the Lakers still trying to make a trade for CP3. Stern wants some draft picks. Lakers can trade Gasol and throw in some 1st rounders. Maybe they try another 3 team trade. Idk I still see us getting Paul if we can keep Gasol from Orlando.
sorry, but the lakers can only use one of the TPE's in a trade, this was discussed last night by marc stein i believe on twitter. as it stands right now the lakers cant make a trade for both hedo and howard without including both gasol and bynum
they could if LA convinced ORL to take Luke Walton's $5.6 million dollar deal with 2 seasons left. That would be a decent tradeoff for Hedo's contract, especially if Walton retires for medical reasons.
Without a real center, Dallas can't defend their championship.
I don't see any way Dallas can swing the Howard trade. Only place I see him going is the Nets.
Dallas is targeting Dalembert, who qualifies as a real center
You mean LA?
Anyway, it hard to predcit ANY team will repeat. But I would say Dallas at least has a fighting chance. Like last year, they are maybe 1 of 7-8 teams capable of winning it.
ESPN_Caplan: BREAKING NEWS: Rick Carlisle: "But I will say this, Khloe’s my favorite Kardashian. She’s the coolest." You heard it here.
No they can use Sasha's trade TPE but it only lasts till the 16th
Looking at the way this roster is shaping up, people are overlooking how deep and versatile this mavs team will be going into a condensed, lockout shortened season.
I would love to have another piece added at C, but if Haywood is motivated then he can be really good, Mahinimi can also be serviceable at C.
I think that's more than enough to get back to the finals this year, people are hyping the Thunder up way too much.
The TPE isn't big enough.
Wonder if Cuban will veto this trade, btw. Odom for nothing. Seems legit.
Dan Gilbert's writing an email as we speak.
The shortened season also means the Mavericks age won't be much of a factor. Kidd, Carter, Marion, etc. won't get worn down as easily.
Cuban vetoed nothing so far.
Oh, he didn't whine and cry about the trade that Stern nixed?
