    Do you think the Mavs will make the Playoffs?

    Now, it's early in the season, but I think it's safe to name the teams in the West that aren't going to make the playoffs:

    Grizzlies
    Warriors
    Kings
    Timberwolves
    Clippers
    Thunder

    That leaves 9 teams. One of which, will not make the playoffs.

    Lakers
    Trail Blazers
    Nuggets
    Hornets
    Rockets
    Jazz
    Maverick
    Spurs
    Suns

    The only team out of that bunch that u can pretty much say will "without a doubt will make the playoffs", is the Lakers. Some teams got a better chance than others, but if I had to guess, the Mavericks r gonna b the odd team out. All of these teams are either really good, or pretty good. I think the Mavericks messed up their future with that Jason Kidd trade (that I thought was a mistake before they ever pulled the trigger) and r going to feel "complete" regret when the season is over.

    If u don't agree, who would u bet is not going to make the Playoffs in the West?

    Yes. They have too much experience and talent. Dirk is quitely having one of his best seasons and they have Kidd, Terry Howard and a nice set of role players.

    They'll be a lower seed...but a team with this depth, veteran leadership and talent is a playoff team.
    OUTRAGE

    I think the Suns are more likely to implode than the Mavs.

    I'm a Blazer fan, but set that aside, why would the Blazers b the odd team out? They got one thing going against them, youth. Other than that, they currently have the 2nd seed in the west while playing arguably the toughest schedual in the league so far. I know it's early, but judging from what we've seen so far this season, I think Portland has a much better chance of making the playoffs than the Mavs. I guess anything is possible though. All of those teams are pretty good or really good.

    damn I don't know whos not going to make it, I really don't think it will be the mavs though. If i had to pick somebody I guess it would be the suns. Of all the teams, they've been relatively healthy, but they've failed to put the pieces together. Hard to imagine them not making it though.

    I think the Suns are in more trouble than Dallas...their coach is more unproven than Carlisle...they are aging. Their role players are less effective and their superstar is complaining.

    They don't have the personel to be a defensive team. they have been lit up by opposing PG's..and the West have the best PG's in the game. The Mavs are much deeper and better equipped.

    I would have to agree that if the Mavs did make it, the Suns would b the team that wouldn't. It's a close call I think.

    Bad news for the Blazers... Martell Webster is out another 4-6 weeks with the same foot injury. They played him for 5 min in the game in Toronto, after recovering from a stress fracture in his foot. They brought him back too soon. He messed up one of his toes from the screw in his foot. Crap. Good thing we're so deep.

    Suns not making it, I'm sorry Suns fans.

    Dallas has shown promise in their last 8-10 games. Suns, meanwhile, have not.

    Porter is trying to instill defense in a team that has no defensive players whatsoever (aside from Bell, if you still count him as one). That has a double negative effect on the team, as their offense is taking a toll...

    The Mavs have won 9 of their last 10 without Josh Howard. Why everyone seems to think they are so bad is beyond me.

    Maybe they need to ship Howard to get a decent starting SG and another solid guy off the bench.

    What do you think?
