They've just got all their key players back.

I'd rather see the Mavs make the playoffs, but is it worth it for them? It's not like they can make it through the first round, and the lottery pick would be good for an old team like them.

I kinda want to see us play San Antonio in the first round (definitely not OKC)

hmmmm.... it sure would be nice to win the lottery though.

You got a better chance of beating the Spurs than winning the lottery

If Jamal Mashburn can hit a few 3s they should be in with a chance.

He'll probably get injured, can't stay healthy, at all.

I would love them in PO over GSW.
Rockets have to make it though.

It's too late to tank.. Would have been the best option for the team and go hard for the #1 overall pick then make a run next year.

Might as well try to make the postseason and hope they don't get OKC. They'll play the Spurs tough though and it will make for an interesting series. I would love to see Dirk go batshit in the postseason again, 2011 postseason run was the GOAT.

i'd love to see them make it over the lakers.

next three games are pretty tough though. clippers, pacers, and bulls.

then the game against the lakers will inevitably be huge.
