This year might be OK for Dallas Mavericks
Q: Are we looking at another mediocre Mavs team this season?
A: I think we're looking at something better than what we saw last year, but a 7th-8th seed might be the high end for a good offensive, weak defensive team. Calderon and Ellis will be fun to watch at 47 feet of the floor. A healthier Dirk will help but it's his 16th year so does anyone think he's an All-Star? How much longer and Marion and Carter going to keep the clock turned back? It's an odd puzzle that Rick Carlisle is trying to put together. This year might be OK. It's the 2-3 years beyond that with no good young stars in the pipeline that look scary.
