    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...

    I thought we also brought back WCS?

    Not seeing in mentioned lately in your articles about who we added?

    According to this Yahoo writer Luka is not even a top 22 PG this season

    It is probably some local beat writer/fan that wanted to get whoever the PG was from their local/favorite team ranked as high as possible. So they just forgot about or left out on All-Star and MVP candidate. Think they are right?

    Lauri Pulse Check

    I agree with you about Lauri, that there is no room for him. Disagree that we should concentrate on Dragic in a trade. We would need to give up 2-3 quality role players and a first rounder (probably) to get Toronto to trade him to us. Which makes it not worth it.

    Should we offer Jalen a reasonable extension?

    Or do we gamble on him being an RFA and most teams passing him up knowing that we will match? That option can be dangerous, because then a team wanting him may overpay him and try to force our hand. Knowing that our starting PG is on a super Max and we might not match a high offer they in the...

    Can this current Mavs roster challenge for home court in the West?

    I think we do. Sure the improvement that we made was minor, but we were already at six seed last season and that included several stupid losses that shoulda/coulda/woulda been wins. Not to mention that no team that finished ahead of us last season really vastly improved. Most of them just...

    Who are the 3/4 offof the bench?

    Go figure, the morning after I post this that we are paperthin at the 3/4you guys write an article on Maxi in a sign and trade for Lauri. I stopped reading after this idea, but the second idea for Goran would not surprise me, it it was Dorian for Dragic. Either way I am shocked that the ideas...

    Who are the 3/4 offof the bench?

    Assuming DFS/Maxi or the starters. I can't think of any other on the team. (I consider DP A five at the end of the bench)
