Ohhhhhhh for 3. Who else can reject our Dallas Mavericks NBA basketball team?
We always suspected the Mavs' master plan to blow up the 2011 NBA title team in an effort to clear cap space and go for the "big fish" was a crack pipe dream but there was a faint hope that perhaps DWill, CP3 or D12 would come here and prove us wrong. Now we know for sure we were right, and sadly our fearless decision makers were dead wrong.
Dirk Nowitzki's last four good years in the NBA are going to have been wasted by his bosses' over confidence in the value of his franchise, and his own money. They don't want to come here unless they have to.
That leaves the Mavs scrambling to assemble a competitive roster with creative trades, or free agent signings. The addition of free agent point guard Jose Calderon gives them a major upgrade at point guard and will allow coach Rick Carlisle not to worry about the guy who can put his team in the right place, and make the proper entry pass.
But there is still the issue of rim protection (Andrew Bynum?) and now a shooting guard.
It's hard not to applaud it when people go all-in with massive risks the way the Mavs did when they cleared out their account to take a huge risk to sign D-Will, CP3 or D12.
It is even harder not to totally bag on that thinking when there was never any real chance of landing those guys in the first place.
