By no means am I a “Basketball Guy”, but I do enjoy all sports and competition. The Dallas Mavericks have been my team since a kid (helps being from DFW), and it seems that might actually have been putting something together that could be a contender in the future.
But that is not what this post is about. It is asking the question whether the current mavs are good or not. I would have to argue that they are kinda good. Luka is legit and the pieces around him are playing well. My expecations for the season was just to get contending for the 8th playoff spot.
Getting in the dance is a big deal, its been a few years since the last playoff apperance and a lot of years since the last title. IF we can sneak in and get the young guys playoff experience it would be a huge win even if it means a first round sweep to the Warriors or whoever.
