    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:

    Kidd/Roddy/DoJo
    JET/Rudy/Carter
    Marion/Brewer/Odom
    Dirk/Wright/Cardinal
    Haywood/Mahinmi

    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:
    Kidd
    Rudy
    Dirk
    Marion
    Dalembert

    Off the bench:
    Two Sixth Man award winners in JET and Odom
    Vinsanity
    Haywood
    Brewer

    I really like the depth we could potentially have.

    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.

    Anyway
    Go Mavs.

    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.

    Mavs TPE
    Vujacic TPE
    Bynum
    Ebanks
    Caracter

    For

    Howard
    Turkoglu

    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.

    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.

    Kidd/Roddy/Jones
    Carter/Terry/Fernandez
    Marion/Odom/Brewer
    Dirk/Odom/Cardinal/Wright
    Haywood/Mahinimi/Odom

    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.

    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.

    Oh, he didn't whine and cry about the trade that Stern nixed?
