    Just decided to check in. Any new Mavs or Cuban info.
    Mavs are in horrible shape. Cuban guessed wrong about the NBA CBA

    It's so miserable, I've tuned out mostly...and I've had season tickets for many years.
    Just sad.

    I've tuned out as well. This is Cuban's doing. Build this team though the draft and start trying to woo every free agent there is known to man. Build around somebody.

    I was a big Mavericks fan 5-10 years ago but drifted into apathy.

    In the past 3-4 years I stopped even checking the scores

    Don't care for the man or his team.

    Some Mavs gear was on sale 30%-40% off. Usually I'd look. Maybe a hoodie or something, but I'm so disgusted, I had to walk on by

    Any Mavs talk should focus on two areas: the draft and upcoming free agency.

    Given this draft class it is almost a foregone conclusion this team starts its rebuild with a PG.
    Question is whether they favor the long athlete: Lonzo Ball
    The Scoring skill Markelle Fultz
    The defensive shut down type guy in Dennis Smith
    Or the all-around PG game of De'Aaron Fox.

    I expect them to have a 2nd lottery pick as they should be dumping vets around the deadline to playoff teams. Bogut, DWill especially.

    Free Agency: Cuban will not be shy here simply because he never has. He will shoot his shot at top prospects the way any cocksure dude does with chicks out of his league.
    The question is does Dirk retire or not. I tend to believe he simply will. I don't think he wants to play for a team that can't contend nor does he want to move to another city with his young kids.
    If he does Dallas has a max slot in a year where I doubt they'd fill it. I am guessing they will grab younger, lesser known guys.
    If Dirk stays you probably go into 2017 as a part two of teamtank. You lose a ton and add a second elite draft pick before trying to add one or two max guys in Free Agency.

    Obviously the Mavs need a PG and a big man. Bogut is long in the tooth for team purposes so I could see him moved for a much lesser but much younger Center.
    With PG likely coming from the draft, finding an elite Center becomes the big job of the next 24 months.

    Easier said than done. You may have left off a zero on your estimate.

    Not much to talk about until next year's draft. Dirk said this might be his last season due to achilles issues.

    To me it's hurting their cause not helping it. They aren't going to make the playoffs unless they can continue to win at a very high percentage as they are still 13 games under .500, and they're just going to get a worse draft pick. They aren't that good of a team to win what they'd need to make the playoffs. I'd say average win total to be the 8 seed is around 45 wins they have 9 wins they have 51 games to go that means they'd have to go 36-15 or better to make the playoffs from here on out.

    But they're against tanking.

    wont need 45 wins this year but i agree with the rest.
    being an 8 seed excites me zero.
    all that said they could just be setting up trades of DWill (suddenly playing very well) and Bogut before the deadline, then back to losing every game.

    in all reality tho it is a 2 or 3 team league right now. everyone else is in the same boat as dallas as also rans.

    Poor Mavs. It's gonna be hard for us to compete for a championship the way the NBA is set up. Likewise, I can't see Milwaukee or Utah winning a championship in the next 25 years
