Default How do you adjust for 2007 if you were Mark Cuban?

Knowing that you were 1 game and 6 minutes away from being world champions yourself, do you at this point:

1. Rebuild the team keeping eye on rematch with Miami Heat in mind (ie an answer for Dwyane Wade)?
2. Load up keeping the matchups against fast running Suns in the west instead who will have Amare Stoudamire back next year
3. Blow it all up and put together almost a different kind of team from scratch the way Riley did it last summer even though his team was few minutes away from winning the East
4. Do nothing. Assume you're in fact the best team in the league going in next season

What do you do when you were this close?

I would go through my team's stockpile of footage, pick out when other teams are getting away with fouls or certain players are getting star treatment against blatantly obvious calls, edit it, package it nicely, then send it to David Stern along with memos, flowers, and a fruit basket.

Nothing. A team that makes the final is already complete. The Mavericks had great chemistry and I would do nothing to upset that.

Don't mess with the chemistry so much, but find ways to improve in all the categories above. Someone decent enough to roll with Amare, and another for Wade. You aren't gonna shut these guys down but you can slow them down.

Maybe try and get a PG that can defend and hit 3s, but what team isnt looking for that?

if they change their team to focus on Miami, they may not even get past the Suns or Spurs

No reason to blow anything up, the team is young, Dirk just turned 28, Jet is 28, Josh is 25, and Devin is 23. I really don't mess with those four guys nor Dampier or Diop, those six stay unless someone blows your socks off with an offer you can't refuse (like a TMac or something that won't happen).

1. Re-sign Jet Terry, it is a priority, somewhere around 5 yrs/$40,000,000 seems about right for him.

2. Let Keith Van Horn walk.

3. Use the entire MLE to replace him, I would prefer Vladamir Radmanovic but there are others out there that would be nice behind Dirk at the PF spot.

4. Draft smartly with #28, try to find another young athlete that can come in and join the team and play Avery's style of defense.

Other than that, use the LLE to re-sign Adrian Griffin, match any offer on DJ Mbenga, and try to use Pavel Podkozlin more during halftime shows to entertain the fans, maybe have Mavs Man jump off the trampoline onto Pavel's head before dunking the ball or instead of having those little guys running around the stadium shooting shirts into the upper deck with the shirt guns, have them instead shoot the shirts into Pavel's head.

That's about it, let the team develop with Avery and keep coming with it. No reason to think otherwise.

#2 of course. Getting out of the West will always be the biggest priority. If Dallas can beat a Spurs team at 100% and a Suns team at 100% in a series, then they should be able to beat any team in the East, no disrespect to the Heat or Pistons.

#1 - Dallas looked bad at times but it's not like they were completely manhandled by Miami. With the exception of game 4, the games were close and if some wide open shots went in and some calls were/weren't made, it could've been a whole different story. Miami is a great team but it's not like Dallas, with their current roster, would have no chance against them again next year.

#3 - If most other franchises try something like that, it's a disaster that could kill the team for years. Miami was fortunate to have one of the best coaches at the helm, with Shaq and Dwyane Wade as the cornerstones.

#4 - No way. The Mavericks definitely have some holes to fill.

Before any offseason moves...I'd tell the team to play for the wins, not for the flops.

That would be great advice for Wade, I agree.

But when the refs give it to you 20 times a game, Id fall down too.

Dirk should progress a bit more.....What they really could use is a post presence besides what Dirk gives them..somebody who can score down low get some easy pts...be a problem for opponents...take some of the load off Dirk. If they had that, and a little meaner attitude, they could be the next NBA Champions

you just addressed a need that almost every team needs, not just the mavs.

i know i'll sound mean, but cuban can do the team a favor and step back a bit and not try to upstage his team. he was a big reason why the mavs lost the whole thing.

bring in Carmello Anthony to speak to the team (specifically Dirk) to explain what it takes to hit clutch shots.

I don't know, you think that's gonna get it done. He just made 7.5 million this last season, you know he wants a substantial raise over that. I think it's gonna take something like 5 years 55 million.

Following up Rasheed's post, I think Magloire would be a great addition to the Mavs. I personally think Harris is worthless so packaging say him and Quis for Jamaal would be great for the Mavs if they sign a good back up point.
