    Talk about a perfect stretch 4.


    Although one of my least favorite players.

    That's awesome. I liked Daryl's jab on the radio the other day about Cuban trying to sign Dwight, then acting like he didn't want him after Dwight chose Houston.

    Morey was serious. Dirk on this team equals instant championship contender.

    He is literally the perfect stretch four.
    I've never seen anyone with a more dominant mid range game than Dirk.

    Yep.

    Sad thing is that even if Cuban was trading Dirk he'd never trade him to the Rockets.

    I'm sure this is true considering Dirk makes over $30million this year.

    What the hell could we we of offered outside of harden Howard

    + morey wouldn't speak to owners about trades esp when the gm is your ex worker

    Taunt text or attempt of humour if true

    The ultimate taunting would have been beating them a second time. The Mavs are not to be taken lightly, and the Rockets should not be eager to face them in the playoffs. BTW, as of today, Dallas is higher in the standings than the Rockets.

    I think Dirk makes $22-23M. Morey definitely would communicate with Cuban and Gersson wasn't the GM until about three weeks after Dwight chose Houston. It may have been a total joke though because he probably knew Cuban would never do it.

    I'm talking it up with a friend here in Dallas. He thinks the mavs are built better for a run at the chip than the rockets. I'm asking him to put his money where his mouth is. What do yall think a good bet is? Best record? How deep of a playoff push? Best record after the trade deadline?

    And the Blazers are a top 3 seed.

    Its the first month of the season. I'm over the first game. This team is getting better and the Mavs have already peaked
