Firstly, I'm not implying that they're doing a bad job at all.
2nd, I'm not saying they put all their eggs in the Dwight/Big FA basket and bombed out. I think they made some solid smart pick ups.

Thirdly and most importantly, Any team with Dirk is going to be decent, too good to completely bottom out, yet not good enough imo.  Maybe people tend to think Mavs have bottomed out, but I see this team hovering around that 8th seed.

My assumption
1. Cuban is a decent fella, thinks Dirk deserves the right to retire a mav
2. Dirk comes back on team friendly deal, retires a mav
3. New core is Dirk/Monta/Jose/Larkin?
4. Prosper?

Overall I don't think this team is bad enough, and Dirk will likely retire a mav.  So do you just hover around the middle of the pack until Dirk withers away?

Cuban has devised this ingenious plan of clearing your roster and starting anew every offseason to miss out on star players.  He is killing it may I add.

see metta I was trying to get away from saying that lol.  did he really put all his eggs in the FA basket?

there had to be a plan b and c.  namely moving dirk the second deron/cp3/dwight all chose other destinations.  now it seems that is the plan b, let dirk retire a mav and not be very good or very bad.

That sounds like the plan...I don't remember, did he sign contracts to able to make a run at everyone next year, or is he done?

I can't believe they didn't pursue Al Jeff more.

I've got it! Their tanking for Wiggens and just making it look like they're trying by "striking out" on the marquee free agents.  And on top of that they have Monta and Dirk to pair with Wiggens! Cuban is a genius!

What seed do you actually guys see Dallas getting? Curious.

Unless Dirk goes 2011 mode, they'll get 8th, maybe 7th at best IMO. I predict they'll be 10th-ish, just missing it out again. But then again, you never know

It'll all come down to who's healthiest.  7 and 8 should be up for grabs between Portland, Minnesota, LA, Dallas, and New Orleans....If everyone is healthy I see it finishing out Minny, NOLA, Dallas, LA, Portland, but if Minnesota has an injury prone season again, NOLA doesn't mesh and AD and Gordan miss games like last year, Kobe doesn't come back to being a stallion, and the Lakers don't mesh that well, all of which is completely possible, Dallas could get 7 and Portland 8.  However I see them getting the 9 or 10th seed.

I think 10ish as well, if they are going nowhere near the trade deadline they need to trade some players and try to rise in the lottery.

a team with dirk,ellis,marion,vc is not in tank mode. they'll be out of the playoffs but defenitely not that worst (ie: bobcats/magic/sixers)

they destroyed a championship core to take risks for deron/dwight. its just that it didnt work out, but i wont pay that kind of money for ellis/calderon..especially calderon.

Maybe they will make a big acquisition at the trade deadline to get into the playoffs.

if dirk was not injured last season they could have made the playoffs to eventually be pounded by the spurs or the thunder (i'd assume westbrook will not be injured if they faced dallas)

i'm just hoping they get the 1st pick next season
