Kidd/Dooling

The real question would be if Kidd is still durable enough by that time. Right now on the Mavs, age is finally catching up to him. He still has some spectacular nights (Hes on my fantasy team and Im really happy by his production this season) but hes having a lot of trouble guarding the young quick PG's in the league.

But if we had Lopez in 06-07, I think we have a good chance at beating the Cavs.

lopez is of course the big piece that was missing during the time of the big three, but...

- your PF spot doesn't work- boone can only play there in spots and neither he nor williams are starter material.
- kidd/carter/RJ have too much redundancy in what they do, especially when RJ tries to be too much of a scorer and carter too much of a passer. the fact is that all three are very good players but an inefficient combination with or w/o a quality big man.
- if kidd had stayed then likely the record would have been different, meaning we probably wouldn't have been in position to draft lopez anyway.

btw, watching dallas this year, kidd looks better than ever to me. he might have slowed down a tiny bit, but as long as someone can check the pocket rockets his overall defense is outstanding and he is the heart and captain of that defense. last i checked he was #2 in the league in steals and had an unusually high number of blocked shots for a PG (.6 a game).

eh forgot to throw antoine wright in there some where. He looked pretty sharp when terry was out. I live in dallas so i watch the mavs play all the time. Kidd is def. a better fit for them than Harris. I like the trade for both teams.

Imagine if RJ and Krstic had never been injured in 2006-2007. Kidd had a 13, 8 and 9 season while VC had a 25, 6 and 5 season. With Krstic and RJ healthy I bet that team wins around 50 games and gets to the Conference Finals.

Never dwell on the past
Think to the Future

PG - Harris / Dooling
SG - VC / CDR
SF - Lebron / Simmons / Hayes
PF - Yi / SWAT

Yeah. If we stayed healthy in 07, I think we would have gotten really far.

Let's take it a step back even farther for fun...
What if we paid for K-Mart and survived the time he was off with injuries. We could not have been much worse looking back now. the line up would be:

KIDD
CDR
JEFFERSON
MARTIN
LOPEZ

We would still have three of the nucleus that took us to the finals. right now they would all be healthy and we would have a mix of young and old. Kinda interesting?......

If Mourning and Kidd weren't injured in 2004, we could have beaten the Pistons, Pacers and Lakers to win that title...
