Yao would give EVERY TEAM the down-low dominance they lack? Who else has a DOMINANT Center(besides Houston and when healthy, Miami)? The Mavericks don't need down-low dominance. They are fine with their duo of Damp/Diop. They have more than enough capable scorers. They don't need 20ppg coming from the center postion, they need high numbers in rebounding and blocks, which is what they get from the Damp/Diop tandem.
