Default If Dirk doesn't win this year.

Unless Mark Cuban can go out this offseason and get a real superstar to pair up with Dirk so they can contend again next season I just don't think Dallas will be back in the NBA finals next season. This is probably Dirk's best/last chance to win on the Mavericks. So if Mark Cuban can't go out and get another superstar to pair up with Dirk should Dirk demand a trade or should Mark Cuban trade him to give him a chance to win on a contending team while also getting some players of value back for Dirk at the same time and just start rebuilding the whole team?

If Mark Cuban can get another superstar player and keep JJ, Butler, Terry, Chandler and Haywood together there should be no reason they can't compete next season. But Dirk really needs some help.

Default Re: If Dirk doesn't win this year.

they should focus on retaining Tyson Chandler, that's for sure. Mavs need him - regardless of what his box scores look like on paper.

I believe Chris Kaman is a free agent , him and Dirk have that German connection (I suppose), he's coming off a not-so-great season but would be a good addition for any team.

One thing is true, Cuban will spend what he has to spend.

Will be interesting to see how, and if, the new CBA agreement effects things.

I don't see them blowing it up.

I imagine that Dallas will kind of go the same route they always go and try to sign a veteran they think can still be a difference maker. I think they'll do this until they're struggling to make the playoffs, not winning 57 games.

Reggie Evans, Kirilenko, Prince, Jason Richardson, Carl Landry, Battier, etc. would all be good fits.

Default Re: If Dirk doesn't win this year.

What if Dallas were to get Chris Paul and keep most of the team in place?

Would a...

Chandler
Dirk
Marion
Butler
Paul

lineup compete? Paul made Chandler a double double player almost every game. Seeing Paul and Dirk together would be... holy crap. Marion can still play and hopefully Butler gets back to 100%.

That would definitely be a really sick team.

also like you mentioned, lets not forget they dont have caron butler. with butler i think they would have gotten that lack of scoring right now they are in desperate need of.

Obviously that lineup would make the Finals again, but Butler would be starting 3 with Marion off the bench...

Default Re: If Dirk doesn't win this year.

Getting Paul would be pretty difficult. They'd have Kidd and Terry as expirers and Roddy to trade.

Paul and Ariza for Terry, Kidd and Beaubois + Picks I think would work (though unlikely). Terry would be bought out and then Kidd would retire saving the Hornets a bunch of money.

Paul
Stevenson
Marion / Ariza
Dirk
Chandler / Haywood

If Terry came back after a buyout that would be huge. Butler probably wouldn't be resigned as they'd be eating Ariza's contract. Hell, maybe they could sign David West on a MLE deal, bring him off the bench and keep the scoring going with the West / Paul two man game.

Won't happen though.

Default Re: If Dirk doesn't win this year.

People said it before this season, too... the NBA and owners like Mark Cuban are unpredictable. But I will say this: this year might be Dirk's best shot at winning a ring. MIA will get better, OKC will get better, the LA dynasty might be over but they can always make a huge trade. Dallas better gets their job done this season. Might be huge in attracting guys like Howard and Paul, too.

You don't think $91 mil in payroll is enough - now they should get a second superstar? Wish Spurs would spend $91 mil.

Dallas and Mark Cuban had that "other superstar" to play alongside Dirk.....but the idiot Cuban let Steve Nash go to the Suns over a few dollars.....what a different series this would be with Nash in the lineup beside Dirk.

Joe Johnson is still a top SG guard in this league and can create his own shot. He would be a perfect second option to Dirk. I can see Cuban going for it Dirk aint getting any younger.
