The Dallas Mavericks sound, look, and generally feel lighter ahead of the 2021-2022 season. Does that necessarily equate greater success?
Media day is here and we got some good insights not just from the players themselves but the new coaching staff on what the future holds for the Mavericks organization.
The Dallas Mavericks have made several changes this offseason but unquestionably fell short of the “big splash” the team had sought. Is the sum of the parts greater than one great splash, or did the team completely whiff yet again?
The Bulls are reportedly very interested in acquiring Maxi Kleber in exchange for Lauri Markkanen in a sign and trade deal. Is this a good idea for the Mavs?
Giannis Antentokounmpo’s new biography just dropped and it shines a bit of harsh light on Jason Kidd as a coach during his time in Milwaukee. Should Mavs fans be concerned?
Luka is staying a Mav. Shocking, I know.
This is a video adaptation of my piece for The Smoking Cuban. Give it a read here if you’d be so kind.
Is this… is this bad?
In a recent interview with a Latvian YouTube channel, Sporta Studija, Kristaps Porzingis offered some enlightening perspective into his mindset following a disappointing playoff run, a long offseason, and plenty of criticism surrounding him.
While researching this list, debating other Mavs fans as to what exactly “best-value” constitutes, it was determined that a best-value contract, at least for this particular list, would be any deal in which a player far exceeded the production of their price tag or directly elevated the team to greater success. We also determined that deals acquired by the Mavericks rather than originally signed by the team should not count, meaning 2010-2011 Tyson Chandler doesn’t count, but 2014 Tyson is in the cards since he was finishing out the sign-and-trade deal Dallas signed him to when dealing him to New York post-title. Got it? Good.
