    Lately the Mavs are not doing so well without Dirk. Even when he comes back, I am not sure if the Mavs are going to make it to the playoffs or not. I am not sure if that Dallas's pick we sent to OKC is the 2013 1st round pick. But if it is, that pick is starting to look better right now given the fact that the Mavs are just terrible without Dirk and Im not sure if he's going to be that great coming back.

    The Mavs pick did go to OKC, but it is top 20 protected, meaning if it falls between #1-#20,the Mavs keep it.

    Thanks, I wasn't sure whether it was protected or not. I thought it was around top 5 protected but top 20? Thank god...
