Re: DeJuan Blair good so far for Mavs
They missed out on Dwight Howard, but the Dallas Mavericks believe they picked up a couple of big hits when they landed centers Samuel Dalembert and DeJuan Blair last summer.
Granted, Dalembert and Blair don’t have Howard’s pizzazz and headline cachet. But the duo have combined to give the Mavs a fresh and effective look inside the paint.
“Dalembert has given us a very solid rim presence and he’s rebounded well,” coach Rick Carlisle said. “Blair has given us a physical presence and he’s rebounded well.
