    Great listen, thanks Clutch.

    You mentioned that Dirk only hit four threes in this series, which surprised the heck out of me. So I went and looked, not only did he go 4-of-17 from beyond the arc in this series, but he's just 6-of-35 :eek: from three in the Mavs' last three playoff series. Wow. He was 1-of-6 in Dallas' series against Oklahoma City in 2011-12 and 1-of-12 against the Spurs last year.

    Yeah, I was surprised and disappointed at how pedestrian Dirk has become. He's still a useful player but he used to be so freaking awesome. I would love it if Dallas would trade him to a contender so he could spend his sunset years as a third star.

    I just think it's a possibility to happen again. Beverley doesn't require the ball and if they keep Monta, that's the type of player they may want. Monta is nowhere near as good of a facilitator as Harden, but as the Rondo situation showed, he appears to be better with the ball in his hands.

    Thanks again to everyone for listening to the podcast and the comments.

    Totally agree Clutch that he would be a good fit; I just wouldn't mind them throwing a lot of money at him.

    Just curious. Why did you bring Beverley up with regard to their FA signings? Did you hear something else?

    I posted a month or two ago about Mavs pursuing Beverley via Elhassan, and he said that Bev was their "top target". Was wondering if you were referring to that or if you heard something else.

    Good listen. The only minor correction: Mavs did not lose four straight playoff series after 2011. This is their third: one season they did not make the playoffs, when Dirk was hurt.

    The two of you talked about pretty much everything I'd want you to talk about. Another great listen. Keep them coming!

    im not that invested in the mavs being bad. parsons on that team is enough. i do not want to root against beverley. if he leaves i hope he goes to an up and coming team in the east. wizards, kings, or even the cavs i suppose. he would be a backup but on good teams.

    I don't have confidence in the "defense" to competitive enough in the second round.... Who feels the same?
