    Just think of the space these guys are going to get when Dirk comes back.

    He'll get those little jumpers all day.

    Total team effort. No one scored over 20 points, but lots of guys in double figures. This is what it will take to tread water while Dirk is out.

    Hopefully Crowder turns out to be the steal of the draft.

    Tried to tell you guys, the Lakers are not in sink. There is very little balance in that offense right now. They are going to get good shots because of their strength in the post but they have to take advantage of them. Very little outside shooting last night.

    Mavs did a good job.

    I guess you can't trust an offense from Princeton. #FireJASONGARETT

    I don't know that it's the Princeton Offense, per say. In the Princeton Offense, you get a lot of easy open shots from the outside and you see Princeton taking those shots and knocking them down. You didn't see either one of of those things with LA last night. I mean, the shots were there but they never really took advantage of them IMO. They didn't force the Mavs to honor the outside shot. That only makes it harder but hey, that's something that Brown will have to figure out. The Lakers have the talent to make any offense work. They just need to play within the offense and actually execute. Can't really blame the offense if your not executing it the way it's supposed to be run. JMO

    Mike Brown is not the right fit for that team. We'll see if they start clicking eventually. One thing is for sure, they have a horrible bench, outside of Jamison.

    You were right. The Mavs weren't really in sink either but somehow we didn't get destroyed in the post.

    I thought that rookie, Crawford, looked like he is going to be a fantastic role player for us. He knows what to do out there.


    Im all of a sudden very excited about the MAvs.

    I don't think that the Mavs have a bad team at all. I tried to say this in the off season but was pretty much drowned out by the masses.

    :laugh2:

    I think that there is something to work with in Dallas. I don't believe that the team is good enough to make a championship run but I think they can make the playoffs.

    The talent on this mavs team is criminally underrated, people were mad because we didn't get D-Will, but if Collison and Roddy are given appropriate PT and allowed to do their thing, i have no issues there. Kidd and Terry held us back and i feel that they were both turnover/gaffe prone, i mean did you see Terry against the Heat? He looked like a scrub.

    I'm loving OJ Mayo and i like the fact that Carter, Brand, and all the other vets know their role on the team. If we can be a decent team until Dirk comes back and he still has it, i think we will be a championship contender again come postseason. That Harden to HOU move made it even more possible for us, Harden killed us last year w/ OKC.

    As for the Lakers, Steve Nash was JAG out there and i was more afraid of Bynum than Howard for the Lakers. It feels good to see what Carlisle can do with a full offseason, he thoroughly out coached Mike Brown last night.

    EDIT: Forgot about Jae Crowder, he's really good as well.

    When the Lakers start pushing the ball up-tempo it's gonna make for a long day for the opponents.

    Further, when Gasol and Howard get in sync, considering the passing ability of Gasol, it'll make for a tough match-up for Miami. Miami doesn't have a legitimate center to match up to the athleticism of Dwight, coupled with Gasol to bring their PFs, like Bosh, out of the middle.

    It's only game 1 of the season, and the Lakers have more expected chemistry issues to work out than Miam does.

    But Mike Brown is the wrong man for the job...

    Terry played like a scrub against Miami? If you mean two years ago, what series were you watching? BTW, I love Dirk Nowitzki and I think his play-off performance last year is highly-underrated in respect to Lebron's performance this year. From an offensive stand-point, that was one of the greatest performances that I've ever seen.

    I meant last night, Terry played one of his best series against the heat 2 years ago.

    That's one game.. To claim he held Dallas back when he was a key piece in the championship run 2 years ago is just absurd. When he's own fire, he's almost impossible to stop coming of the bench. He was a huge spark for the team.

    Not about one game, just how i felt about the team in general way before the game. No one is screaming championship because of this.
