Doug Christie, who played seven games with the Mavs at the beginning of the 2005-06 season before being waived, is a big Avery Johnson fan and had nothing but love for the organization Thursday. As a matter of fact, Christie is working out four hours a day and plans to return to the NBA this season. And he would love to be a Mav again.
Straight from Christie:
"The Mavs situation was fantastic, and Avery Johnson was a fantastic coach. The thing I enjoyed about Avery was that he had a system. You didn’t have to think as much on the court. He had an offensive and defensive system in place, so it [freed you up] and allowed you to create on the court. I also really enjoyed Mark [Cuban], and the love he had for the team really spilled over and it showed. Unfortunately, I was injured and it just didn’t work out at the time. But I know I can help the Mavs get over the hump and win a championship. The skills I have and the numerous positions I can play ... I’m a veteran who can help through the playoffs. Hopefully, I can return to the Mavs and help them win a championship. It’s something I would love to do."
Well how about that?

Doug Christie returning to the Mavs? How does that sound, Mavs fans?
