    Frank Ntilikina - Thumbs Up or Down?

    In my opinion, Frank it should be moved into the starting lineup. Not only because it provides great defense on pretty much whoever you needed to guard, but he is also a very solid secondary ballhandler. This way Brunson can be a Sixth man, and run the bench mob flawlessly with Tim also helping...

    Game thread: Mavericks @ Raptors (Small Ball)

    For a day I was thinking this was going to be an easy one to get us even at 1 – 1, but after seeing the Raptors super small ball team needs showing the Celtics last night my view kind of shifted a little bit and this might be a pretty tough match up. Will Coach Kidd make an adjustment or keep...

    Ry's Game 1 Review – Personal (from a fan) observations from the game.

    1) Even though all of the shots were not falling in the first half defense was still pretty solid, and during the second half neither were there as we didn't have offense or defense. 2) I don't know if this was a Coach call or a personal call from Luka that he decided not to shoot early and...

    General Mavericks and NBA board is needed for Gamethreads and other everyday NBA discussions

    Krlstaps has really impressed me so far in the preseason. Not only is he driving more and getting to the paint, but he also seemed to be moving better and playing with more of an edge. For instance, he has done a few alley oops, and in my opinion doing a few of these will help give our shooters...

    General Mavericks and NBA board is needed for Gamethreads and other everyday NBA discussions

    Just for us everyday fans to pose questions about random stuff or praise random things about the Mavericks. This season starts in a little over a week and we will need a place for game threads also. Just a few examples, where do we post random topics about the preseason so far with the Mavericks...

    Does Frank resting tonight mean that he is pretty much on the final 15 roster?

    As if there was a close race, and he was needing to earn a spot we probably would not be resting him in a preseason game where we get a better look at him. So I am thinking that the 15th spot is a race between Burke, WCS, and Terry. Obviously, Burke is a guaranteed more money, but you really...

    Is Philadelphia handling the Ben Simmons drama the right way?

    Sure, every once in a while Joel or Doc may say to the media that the team needs him to win it all. But most of the time, at least to me, they are saying is the exact opposite of that, like they are trying to push him out. Kind of like what they are doing with withholding the agreed upon...

    Mavs Step Back Mailbag

    On your last podcast, you guys mentioned the Mavericks trading for Simmons. This would be a great trade, but we don't have the ammunition to pull this off. We could include four or five players to salary match, but would we want to? As this would really ruin our rotation. I would still vote yes...

    Do you see Frank leap frogging anyone in the rotation?

    He is guaranteed for almost 3.5 million I think. So will Mark eat that money or ask Nico to find a ttrade to dump this?

    Frank Ntilikina - Thumbs Up or Down?

    Great defender. You can always use defense, with 15 guarantees already who do we trade/cut for him? I would take his size and defense over TB.

    Do you see Frank leap frogging anyone in the rotation?

    I would say yes. If he has a good training camp and the defense is that good and really impresses, he can. But who? My best guess is Burke. His salary makes him a somewhat easy dump;. It all comes down to what Coach likes more than defense from Frank or the spark plug shooting from TB? I...

    The Mavs should retire more key players’ numbers going forward

    I second this opinion! Longtime players like Jason Terry, Shawn Marion, Jason Kidd, JJ B, and probably a few more. Not sure on this so I will ask, if he hangs the jersey and the rafters does he also have to retire the number?where players can not use this number?

    Luka and his three improvements needed to get to the next level

    Control is probably the most important and also hardest for him to improve. During the Olympics, he received a few stupid technical fouls that he should have and could have easily avoided. But he is still young, so I can see attitude and that temper toward referees will win the doesn't get the...

    Kidd has mentioned that he wants to get us playing better defense like the Lakers but

    This worries me. Luka plays at a fast-pace and not really a half-court guy even though he can. Most teams, when they talk about focusing on Defense, tend to slow the pace down significantly. I am worried that if we slowed the pace down it will hurt Lukas or rather throw him off his game.

    2021-2022 Western Conference Playoff Predictions

    I mostly agree. I am not as high on Memphis. Even with no Leonard football season (I think he will play in some) I think the Clippers will finish higher. Last season Phoenix caught lightning in a bottle, like we did in 2011, so I don't really see them finishing at number one either, but they...
