That really sucks for Dallas. Good thing they picked up Elton Brand though. So who becomes premier fantasy pick on the Mavs? Mayo, Brand or Kaman?

What do you think Dallas' record will be when Dirk returns.

5-11?

With no more jason terry and no dirk to start the season, Dallas is really gonna need someone to step up and score. Maybe this will finally be OJ's time to step into the spotlight.

I've been going with brand.. OJ is fickle and Kaman is ADD.

Crowder. That should open up 25 minutes for him. HeŽll average 8-10 pts, 5-6 rebs, 2.0 stls, 1.2 Threes, 1.2 ast, 0.7 blks imho.

Good for development of younger players who will have to step up. Also while Brand isn't anywhere near all star anymore he's still very capable of holding it down while Dirk is gone. The guy is still a tier 1 defensive PF just a step below KG.

As a Mavs fan, I'd rather see this happen now then in the mid/late season. Time for others to step up and this is a great opportunity for Crowder.

This could be a blessing in disguise for the Mavs.
First, because Dirk holding out surgery would've been a really terrible decision in the long run.
Secondly, because it'll force his teammates, particularly the newer guys, to step up, making the team stronger overall.
