I think we can settle with the difference between Kidd and Paul being pretty close to the difference between Dirk and West. West isn't another dime a dozen PF, but he sure as hell isn't on Dirk's level.
How can you even compare West and Nowitzki? You take Dirk at 80% over West any day of the week.
Chandler is highly overrated this season. All you ever see him do is put in alleys or put backs he is a product of CP3s game.
Benches are split? Hornets have one of the weakest benches out of all the play off teams besides Bonzi Wells their bench is pretty weak...While the Mavs have ummm lets see- Jason Terry, Brandon Bass, and then they have some solid role players in George, Jones, Allen and Lue.
JeT and Bass alone > Hornets bench.
Sorry bro your post was very biased towards the Hornets
And exactly what kind of post was yours? What's the word I'm looking for? Oh yea biased.
Yeah maybe but I didnt start the thread trying to break down everything evenly for everyone to discuss
If I had broken down everything I wouldnt have sounded half as biased as I did in my post since I only listed things that I didnt agre with....besides which points were biased? You dont think Nowitzki is better than West and not just slightly? You dont think Dallas has a better bench?
The Chandler thing has nothing to do with my bias towards the Mavs...I would have said he was overrated if the Hornets were playing the Nuggets as well.
Got no problem with what you said. Just pointing out that it was all biased, when you were calling somebody else out for being biased. I'll be at game 1 and 2. I don't really care how they match up head to head in this thread. We will know tomorrow.
If I were the mavs I'd want the Hornets too, but here's a funny quote from Chandler's blog:
It's comical to me that they wanted to play us. First of all, it's comical to me that you're scared of a team, and say that you don't want to play them.
But it reminds me of when I was little. I begged for the My Buddy doll, begged for the My Buddy doll. I kept asking, "Ma, get me the My Buddy. Ma, get me the My Buddy." But my mom couldn't really afford it, so she couldn't get it for me at that time.
So, I kept at it. "Ma, get me a My Buddy. Every other kid got a My Buddy. Mom, I never get anything!" Just making my mom feel bad.
So, my uncle told my mom, "I'll fix this." I didn't know my uncle told my mom that, but he came over with this video and pops it in the machine. I'm like, "Ah, My Buddy!" And it turns out it was the Chucky movie.
All the next week, I'm telling my mom, "Please, don't get me My Buddy. Please, don't get me My Buddy."
So sometimes, what you think you really want, you don't really want. The Mavericks think they want us, and they asked for us, and we ain't gonna be My Buddy. They're gonna get Chucky.
