Finally we get to see what he can do.

well, there's some of the added defense and energy that you would like to see off the bench Rob. If nothing else, he should help out with that.

hopefully he'll be as good a prospect as advertised

I wouldn't mind if he was just half as good as advertised i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif Can't wait to see him play!

In the words of Don Nelson, he is going to be our "Secret Weapon" in the playoffs...

Booth has been activated and Trent has been placed on the IR. I wonder if Gary will ever wear a Mavs uniform again. I doubt it. Here's the link: Link (http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/news/20010321/dalmoves.html)

Cool, thanks for the link Tarzan.

Incase there's a blowout tonight, I wonder if he would play tonight i/expressions/face-icon-small-confused.gif . I doubt it.

And I've said for a long time now that Trent will not be in Dallas after this season. And I still believe that.

DB.com seems to think Booth is playing tonight, guys.

I think we need Trent coming off the bench in the playoffs.

I haven't seen too much of Booth, is he really THAT good?

I saw quite a bit of him when he was at Penn State (I watch a lot of Big 10 ball, since I go to IU), and he was an exceptional shot-blocker and a very good rebounder. I haven't seen him play in the NBA, but from what Nelson and the coaching staff are saying (and it is supported by his stats with the Wiz), he is going to be an impact player... Supposedly, the Howard deal would not have gone down without Booths' inclusion...

Oops wrong window- wrong thread..this is just an edit.... Uh, Booth can block shots. That's always gotta help.
