    Huge loss for Dallas. Butler was playing very good.

    This just made the Mavricks the favorites in the Iggy sweepstakes.

    I agree. I don't want it to happen to anyone.


    ...but since it happened, at least I'm glad it was the Mavs.

    OK then, propose a trade that makes sense for the Sixers.

    No, it doesn't make them the favorites. It may mean Dallas wants iggy more though, now that this happened.

    I feel no sympathy for other teams.

    Houston has had pretty much injuries every year since 06.

    Given that almost any Dallas trade for Iggy proposed involved Butler, I would say that Dallas's odds of grabbing Iggy have in fact decreased.

    In other words....Dallas might be willing to give up one of their two centers for a swingman...

    You made my point. Iggy probably isn't going to Dallas.

    Time to pull the trigger on that Kevin Martin for Brendan Haywood deal that they had in the works.....OH WAIT THIS ISN'T A VIDEO GAME? YOU MEAN CARON BUTLER IS FOR REAL INJURED? AND HOUSTON HAS AN ACTUAL GM? AHAHAHAHAHAH.

    Seriously. Suck it Dallas. You neither deserve nor receive any sympathy from us. The entire NBA is dumber for your team's existence. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
