This game tells me lots of things

1.) Calderon and Ellis backcourt is a nightmare.
2.) Calderon or Ellis needs to be traded since neither can play defense at all
3.) Calderon should never be the starting pg again.
4.) Mark Cuban slowly turning into the worst owner in sports. Just watching from the bench and doing nothing about the center position.
5.) Rick Carlisle needs to get FIRED


Did these fans think the Mavs were going to contend for a championship this season. Don't know about anyone else here, but they're doing better then i thought they would.

I actually think Ellis' defense improved. DeMar dropped 40 but there were times where Ellis was all up in whoever he was covering and was playing really physical. DD also hit a lot of contested jumpers.

that's what a decade of 50 wins get you, you're hovering around .600 with a pretty mediocre team and you're still unhappy. One can only hope we'll be like that in 10 years

Also, Rick Carlisle fired.


I think he's only had one losing season as a head coach. and he JUST won you guys a ring a couple years ago. He's easily one of the best in the biz.

Monday was my birthday so my friend bought me ticket to go see my beloved Mavs vs Craptors.

Dirk didn't play for whatever BS reason. Mavs lost pretty badly. And no free pizza since the winning team didn't score more than 100 points.

What a birthday gift. Thanks Dirk for being a pussy.

This makes Raptors fans look somewhat sane. I'd love to have Cuban and Carlisle, probably one of the best owner/coach combos in the league.

I agree, but I still wonder what Cuban was thinking with his signings the past offseason.

They're playing above expectations this year and Jose/Monte have been great additions IMO

not sure - they've locked themselves with long term contracts and that team is very close to the now famous no man's land scenario. They're not just one piece away, they need more than that.

on the other hand, they had to do something to keep dirk. Still. they're making the same mistakes we did when we tried to keep bosh. It's working out a little better for them, but they'll probably be sorry in the next couple of years.

What moremilk said, they weren't smart long term deals. Even for the short-term, they probably won't see past the first round.

Above expectations at 25-20? To say that's above expectations shows how bad those deals were. They gave way too much money to players that have them "above expectations" in 8th place. Lovely

yeah, that's ridiculous. i guess that's what shitting out 50+ win seasons for over a decade, and winning a championship does to a fanbase.

It's amazing how a Mavs fan could want Carlisle fired. He's probably the best in the league at building a perfect system around whatever flawed roster he's given. Most coaches have a system, Carlisle creates a great system for his personnel. Arguably the best x and o's coach in the league. His one knock in the past was managing personalities, but the Mavs don't have those problems, so that kind of statement confounds me.
