^^i think you are wrong on everything you just said.

The changes hurt in some ways, but they got better in others. You swapped Stevenson for Carter. Delonte West for JJ. Mahimi and Brandon Wright give athletic time at center.
Kidd is now healthy and is geared for playoffs.
Same with Dirk, he's getting better every game. 24 pts in second half last night to beat Sixers. Odom is coming along.
As it is with veteran teams, its how they look going into the playoffs....who in the west can they not beat in 7 games....

Carter is a shell of himself and he has never been accused of playing defense. they lost 75% of their defense with the loss of chandler and Stevenson. West is a head case who has under performed at every step of his career. Kidds bad back isn't getting better, as the season moves on the mavs schedule gets much harder so kidds back isn't going to get better. Dirks not 100% per both himself and his coach.

If the mavs rest their repeat hopes on mahinmi and wright well good luck.

I would put money on ANY of the top 3-4 teams in the west and 2-3 teams in the east would beat them in a 7 game series.

We shall see.....

Carter is a huge upgrade on Stevenson and does play very good D, Ive been pleasantly surprised. Plus their best defender is and has been Marion and he's playing great. Kidd and Dirk, baring injury, will be just fine. Mahimi and Wright are better than you think and they back up Haywood.
There are 3 teams capable of beating the Mavs; OKC, Miami, Chicago.

Ugh, having a hard time watching the NJ vs. Bulls game at the moment. The refs are currently raping the Bulls and I am normally pretty mellow about calling out the refs. They are going to have a rough debriefing after they look at the game tape.

you guys missed a hell of a spurs/clippers game. the 1st half the refs where LOVING the clippers, after about half or 2/3 of the 2nd quarter was over they started to try to even it out.

gary neal with a huge steal/3 ball to force OT.

also you will never hear parker in any "top 3 PGs in the league" conversations but he COMPLETELY owned/out played chris paul. 30-10-3, and 50% shooting mostly over griffin/jordan/martin. parker is on fire right now and deserving of his ALL STAR appointment.

Don't know about the Spurs, Duncan is a shadow of what he was. Ginobli is injury prone and they have no bench...

Lmao! Good try. The spurs with no bench? The same bench that took a 20 point lead by the mavs and pushed to over time while scoring 52 straight points against mavs starters with not a single spurs starter in the game in the 2nd half/ over time? The same no bench that is a top 3 bench in the nba?

Duncan is a shell? While averaging 15-9 unless then 30 minutes per game? Show me ANY PF/C that is doing that. Manu had a freak injury with a broken hand.

Keep trying
