Default How good can DeJuan Blair be?

The Mavs signed Blair to a one-year, $884,293 free-agent contract in August to help bolster their front line. Although he has to defend much taller centers, Blair adds some much-needed muscle and physicality the Mavs were lacking when they lost Elton Brand to the Atlanta Hawks via free agency over the summer.

I just try to use more of what I have than what I dont have, the 6-foot-7, 270-pound Blair said. I know I dont have height, but Ive got a lot of power and strength.

Im pretty strong, so it evens out. Its nothing to me. Ive been playing [center] all my life against seven-footers.
