The Mavs have built a nice team around Dirk. I don't think it's enough though to reach the WCF.

Mavs have a LEGIT team. As Deep as denver but better plus they actually have a star and a guy they can go to in the clutch with Dirk.

Check out this roster:

C Kaman, Wright
PF Dirk, Brand
SF Marion, Carter
SG Mayo, West (if Re-Signed), Jones
PG Collison, Beaubois

That team can defend and score, they're balanced. Honestly gonna enjoy watching this mavs team. Props to cuban for getting this team together after it looked like mavs would be a lottery team 2 weeks ago. I think the mavs can compete for a 4th seed with this team, and with their depth they can upset a few teams. . wow.

power forward: Dirk Nowitzki - Elton Brand
center: Chris Kaman - Bernard James

other guys: Roddy Beaubois, Dahntay Jones(expect to be waived), Brandan Wright, Jared Cunningham(1st round pick)

definitely like the way Jones has played in summer league, much better size and defense than Collison. he should see the start. don't know what Roddy's future is.

this team is worlds better, younger, and talented than last year. can't wait.

07-16-2012, 11:51 PM
Collison is a career 12/5 guy, hopefully he can up that to 15 pts 8 assists,

OJ scored 18.5 and 17.5 ppg in his first two seasons, before his decline, but I can easily see him scoring 15+ w/ Dallas, hopefully he can put up 15/5/5

Kaman can be a 12-15 pt/ 10 rebound per night guy as well.

In all fairness that is exactly what everyone was saying when Dallas won the title. Not predicting that they are going to win it again this year but they have at least put themselves in position to challenge for at least the 4th seed this year. Once the playoffs start you never know what can happen. San Antonio was the #1 seed last year and look what happen.

If they can turn marion,picks, roddy and take back something and land iggy i would say this offseason is better than getting just deron..

Collinson>kidd
Mayo(will be better with time)=terry
Kaman>Haywood
Brand>mahinmi


The mavs need that star ball handling wing to compete for the top of the west.. And iggy seems like the perfect player..

OT Thriller
07-17-2012, 12:06 AM
Mark Cuban needs to get some credit for the way he's handling this team. After everyone was ripping on him for missing out on Deron and other free agents, he has done a spectacular job getting the necessary pieces to make them a contender in the west. Collison trade was awesome, Kaman signing was exactly what they needed at center and to top it all of they get Mayo, a young playmaker who fits the exact role they need at SG. He will get a ton of playing time in Dallas and that's exactly what he needs to become a break out player that lives up to his post college hype.

On top of all of that, they maintain significant cap space for the next 2 offseasons. I lol now at how everyone jumped to hate on the Mavs so early in the offseason. They are looking great right now, they are going to be a fun team to watch.

Mr.B
07-17-2012, 12:07 AM

I'm still hoping they can find a way to get Calderon to Dallas. I have a feeling it's going to involve Jason Terry and the Celtics some how. There HAS to be a reason he hasn't officially signed with them yet.

How is utah going to be better ? Please tell me ..

The mavs will once again prove people wrong .. They arent going to win a championship but they def. are better than last years team..

if the wolves dont get batum and rubio comes back not 100% for the start it will slow them down ..

warriors might be the biggest question mark of the west .. They could have 2 potiential allstars who could also be a potiential road block if either or both get hurt..

Houston and portland are decreasing and phoenix just lost by far their best player.. Memphis just lost a 6th man and 3rd best scorer and still havent found a way to gel their players..

Mavs dont have a tougher time and now have a better team.

I have them as the 7th-8th seed without the wolves houston or portland ahead of them

utah had the same record as dallas last season and this year they upgraded the PG spot and I look for them to get even better since they are bringing most of the players back

dallas picked up a bunch of role players who dont play defense (besides brand,marion)... oj mayo is very inefficient and collison lost his starting job to george hill in indiana, kaman can never stay healthy and they dont have much of a bench

I'm still hoping they can find a way to get Calderon to Dallas. I have a feeling it's going to involve Jason Terry and the Celtics some how. There HAS to be a reason he hasn't officially signed with them yet.

Would Calderon really want to come off the bench though. I think he's always started for the Raptors and him fighting for minutes with Collison & Ronny might not be a good idea. I mean you could make it work but it might be tough, only my opinion though good luck.

In all fairness that is exactly what everyone was saying when Dallas won the title. Not predicting that they are going to win it again this year but they have at least put themselves in position to challenge for at least the 4th seed this year. Once the playoffs start you never know what can happen. San Antonio was the #1 seed last year and look what happen.

They lost to an extremely talented team.

I think that the Mavs could be a hard fight, but I don't think they have enough to compete with/beat the likes of the Spurs or OKC.

Since the only thing that has been posted is Mayo's tweet here is the ESPN Dallas article on the OJ Mayo signing. Says they are still interested in resigning Delonte West (which I really hope they do).

If Calderon came to Dallas he would start. He's a better PG than Collison. They would easily be one of the better 1-2 PG tandems in the NBA though. I have a feeling Roddy is about to be delt.

Yea every team in the NBA is going to have a tough time dealing with OKC for quite a while. It's also weird when the Mavs and Spurs play each other. Records don't usually seem to matter. Last year was the first time in a long time where they really put it on the Mavs and that was mostly because they Mavs couldn't keep up with their young guys. That shouldn't be a problem this year. The Mavs though are also going to have trouble with the Lakers size inside. I'm just glad Cuban and Donnie have at least given the Mavs a chance to go deep in the playoffs. Anything can happen once you get there, the key is getting there.

Those opinions are relevant because Dallas didn't face the Spurs and the Thunder weren't as good as they are now. Miami imploded as well with LeBron's play in the Finals. Not taking anything away from Dallas, but things went favorably for the Mavs that year.

Plus they were a higher seed that year than last year, so first the Mavs have to get back to that level of play.

The Mavs have built a nice team around Dirk. I don't think it's enough though to reach the WCF.

Dallas has bounced back nicely. This is how you do it. Not make plans for certain free agents two yrs out.

actually they are irrelevant because in reality unless you are a Mavs fan there was no way you expected dallas to do anything past the WCF that yr w/ our roster let alone beating the heat...and as far as the spurs go ginobli got injured and they let memphis get the best of them, the best team won, it has nothing to do with us and we also beat okc which i agree are better now than they where last yr but still in all we beat them as well as sweeping then the nba champions the lakers....so it had nothing to do about things going our way we just out balled everyone we played and plus dirk played at an elite level which he did not play at this yr after playing for germany when we won the title

Collison

Not a bad lineup

See this is a "GREAT" signing. A guy who's 24, who had his contract basically slashed away from Memphis, a former lottery pick who scores, who handles and can hit some shots. He's not the most amazing defender, but at 24, what do you want but a kid with a chance to put a chip on his shoulder and be in Dallas with a Superstar. They didn't get a pure point, but Collison could be good now. As a Spurs fan, I love competition. Welcome back from the dead Dallas. I can respect this move, even though I cannot stand the Mavs. (Outside of Dirka Dirka)

Nikeman

I look at these things:

Improving Team: A, replace old Kidd with Collison, replace Terry with young Mayo, Replace back-up level Mahimi with starter, quality center Kaman.

Getting Younger: A++

Missing out on D-Will: Brings it down to a B+

Contending: A 3-6 seed, not a title contender.

I agree, getting younger when you have cap like that is the thing to do. Gives Dirka something refreshing versus old garbage like Kidd. Kaman is a good fit too.

I think they got Mayo for cheap. Caplan is saying that it's a two year deal with an opt out next year.

I guess Mayo's plan is to try and have a good year to cash in next year. Doesn't make much sense, especially if teams were offering more years and more money. Interesting decision.

Welcome to the world of the Mavs fans. Mayo is a good signing but Dallas has never been able to land the top free agents. I've been a Mavs fan since '92 and I have never seen them sign any of the big time free agents. They've always had to do it through trades.

Dirk is still dominant and unguardable. Grizzlies don't have that type of presence. OJ will do fine playing off him. Besides, Rick Carlisle will bring the best out of him. He's a great coach.
