It's not that simple. Dirk is treated as a superstar when he isn't one. He's treated as a franchise player when he isn't one.
Look at players like Ray Allen or prime Peja. Those guys could be great scorers, but there was no way they were winning championships as the clear #1 with supporting players, no matter how talented those supporting players were. They were the types of guys who needed players as good, or better beside them if they wanted to win a ring. Dirk is overrated in the sense that people still think he's the kind of player can have a championship team built around him.
Re: Rick Carslisle must be fired if Mavs lose this series..
Carlisle just said Haywood has earned a max contract and that Beaubois will get 10 minutes per game next year. If Barea gets injured he might increase it to 15 minutes. They´ll also trade Dampier´s expiring contract for Jermaine O´Neal.
