If he were to have stayed in that spot, he would have had to taken a forced three, a shot that he is not used to taking. Either way you get a bad offensive possession if marion stays put.

Dirk made the typical basketball mistake of passing before looking. It happens. You'll see a guy standing in a spot, make your move, and when the help comes, you'll try to immediatly revert back to that man, but you really have to look first.

That was 100% Dirk's fault on that play.

This shows how little you know about basketball and spacing and teamwork.

There was a reason why marion is expected to remain in the spot for i've already explained.

But Dirk doesn't make the habit of yelling at teammates when Dirk makes a mistake. In fact, its such a rare happening that its obvious marion was in the wrong.

You would know this, but you don't see enough Mavs games. And thats the whole point of all of this stuff.

People like you over-rate the shit out of this Mavs team now that we got hot and smashed your beloved Kobe in a series to make yourself feel better.

Its hilarious.

Go back to getting owned in your bulls vs mavs thread in which you conceded.
