I'm repeating myself here, but it is a new year after all. The Dallas Mavericks have proven to be very reliable at starting strong and finishing flat on their face. Their record is a mask to their ugly underside. Heck even the humble owner knows they suck - at least that's a step in the right direction.

Win one, lose one. If they can win against teams above .5 and lose against the lower .5 teams then they might make the playoffs. Dirk can barely play full games and the rest of the team cannot maintain any sense of consistancy. I hope a smart, talented, and young player replaces the late Hemp Howard. Maybe this year can be saved. Maybe.
