    It's just talking. I hope McHale and team do their homework and send Cuban talking even more like the gif below.

    Awesome. For once it's the Rockets who are being given bulletin board material.

    Nah, he's giving back-handed compliments, mostly aimed at Morey. The implication is that Morey is just lucky that he has that one really good player, because the team that he built around him is garbage.

    He's giving his own team a little too much credit, as well. The Mavs front 5 has more scoring options than the Rox, but the Rockets have both the best player in the series AND a better bench than the Mavs.

    Are you sure you have a hard on for Harden? I feel like its more of a semi.

    Love the not-so-subtle swipe at James Harden. Grantland writers just can't help themselves. The Beard is in their heads.

    The Rockets probably have the flaws that Cuban mentions, but the Mavs are probably not good enough to exploit these flaws. The later round opponents do, though.

    As much as I hate to admit it, Cuban's got a point. We do run predictable offense and defense schemes. When I watch Rox games, I can always tell if Harden is going to get the ball, when he's going to pop it out for a corner 3 or Dwight post-ups.

    You can't win playoff basketball with those kinds of predictability. We have to learn to adapt and make adjustments on the fly. Whether this is a Mchale problem or team problem or both, we will never know. But for some reason, we are just not a good team at adjustments. We never were. If our typical 2-3 offensive schemes fail, then we look like a deer caught in headlights and expects Harden to carry us. But if teams are going to lock down on Harden, then we basically have salvos left to answer back.

    This is the reason we haven't made it out of the first round since Yao.

    I'm actually glad Cuban took the shots at the rest of the team and not Harden. Maybe that's the gasoline they need to light a fire in their ass and play out of their minds.

    I need to know I'll get a return on my investment of not giving 2 damn's what Cuban thinks... so for that reason I'm also out.

    Shots are basically at McHale. He says we're talented, but predictable. Honestly, that is true. But, then he says we're not a good team....Well we're #2 seed and going to wrap this series up by next week, so BAM :grin:

    Let's Get Ready To Rumble!! Seriously, this is going to be a great series. The whole Western Conference Rounds will be great to watch. I can't wait!

    God I hate Cuban, but let's not get carried away with being the 2nd seed. We're only 1 game better than the 6th seed.

    He went after Dwight and Ariza. He had Terry and Brewer. Our team blew expectations out of the water. His team wasn't even close to their expectations. salty! PhD
