Then we would have a second line of

PG- Marko Jaric
SG- Rashad McCants (we he returns)
SF- Justin Reed
PF- Mark Madsen
C- Mark Blount

thats a decent 2nd team

So have you guys finally just accepted that Dirk is better than kg? Im curious because james is very similar to jason terry. Foye is better than anything the mavs can throw out there at the 2(unless they finally play harris) Davis is as good as josh(or damn close) and wright is pretty close to Diop. The mavs have slightly more depth but the mavs depth is largely an illusion due to the fact that they start two backups. Yet the mavs will win 58+ games and everyone will say dirk has way too much help whereas if these trades happen i guarantee you no one (except joe wait but he doesnt really count) would say that kg has too much help.

I would agree that with that lineup KG should make the playoffs.

KG is still better than Dirk, but it's debatable.

Yeah i agree he has some to make up for. Congrats to the twolves. I kinda want to see both teams have exactly equal talent so that when the mavs beat the twolves we dont get the kg has no help argument. No offense and kg is a stud but when you look at all the guys he has played with throughout his career he has had alot more help than most think.

I guess.

I wish McCants never got hurt, that's the only thing that could taint our playoff hopes now. Along with gettign a center obviously.

I hope Olowonkandi doesn't get signed by any team. The guy is a joke and should go be a clown at a circus.

Well skywalker hopefully we will get to have the dirk vs kg discussion in the playoffs as they are going head 2 head. After the 03 season i thought we were gonna get to see that series pretty much every year and i really looked forward to it. I do think dirk is better but its so much simpler when they get to play each other to settle it. As long as all 4 of the great western pfs(Duncan, dirk, Brand, Kg) are in the playoffs (5 if amare is healthy) we are guaranteed at least one amazing matchup every round and generally 2.

I would love to see a TWolves vs Mavs playoff match up.

Another good PF is Gasol, but Dirk owned him this year.

*waits for kwajo*

I thought about mentioning gasol but he isnt quite on the same level as the other 4 or 5. He is solid but not great. The mavs have now swept both a gasol and a garnett team in the dirk era. That said even when the mavs were sweeping garnett i was impressed with him. He averaged like 20 and 20 in that series. That was the best series(even though it was only 3 games) that dirk has played yet(30 and 15 avg) and kg played him almost even. Gasol on the other hand looked like he had no business being on the court with dirk and was scared to death. This isnt really meant to be a knock on gasol as i like him alot but he just isnt in the super elite class that the others are.

They would win the division(im not sure how the nba redid the seeding) or the 7th seed.
1. Dallas/Sa
2. phoenix/clips
3. Min/denver
4. Dallas/Sa
5. Houston
6. Phoenix clips

Good god the west is stacked. You still have the lakers, the retooled hornets, the jazz who are solid, the kings, the warriors who still have talent though they never live up to it and the grizz who would get homecourt in the east. All of those teams would easily make the playoffs in the east.

Well, we got James. Kewlz. Now we need to look for help in the frontcourt. Melvin Ely just plain ol' isn't happening. Lorenzen Wright and Francisco Elson would be hard to get. Othella Harrington would be much easier to get.
