Do I really have to quote some of the comments? Clearly there's some early skepticism going about Noel when the season hasn't even started. Though you keep trying to troll me. While I just point and laugh.Plain and simple. If he helps get the Mavs into playoffs at the age of 23. Then it makes sense to keep him long term.

I read your comments, I just don't understand what you're talking about... Why did you bring up Cousins? What does he have to do with Noel? Are you trying to say Noel is a better value (or easier to land) than Cousins? Because "It's very likely compared to chasing after Cousins" isn't a coherent statement, especially within context... Whatever idea you're trying to communicate isn't coming across. You're trying to paint me as disagreeable, but I can't have an opinion about what you're saying if I don't have any clue what you're saying.

As for Noel, you obviously haven't read MY comments (which seems to be a theme whenever you post -- you talk, but you don't listen)... My best-case scenario is that he stays healthy, balls out of his mind, earns a max contract, and lures another max free agent to Dallas. Go back and read my posts, it's all there. I WANT Noel to succeed, I just don't think the odds are in his favor based on his track record.

Cousins has been talked about trying to chase after next season. Which could turn into another disappointment Mavs getting snubbed.. And there was a list of free agent centers posted above/last page. Reason why I mentioned him.

Bro. Re-read your post a few times and tell me it doesn't seem like you are either pretty high, driving or busy, or focused on other stuff and just start typing halfway through your thoughts. I think if you take a few more mins to formulate your sentences and posts in general it wouldn't be such a speed bump in the thread. I think more people might even agree to some of your opinions if they were stated more clearly.

Multitasking, sport. At least you can sum it up for me right.

Multitasking or not, I have a better chance at understanding a random stranger on the street who talks like Farmer Fran than most of the posts yahyes makes. Many times I have to go back 5-10 posts earlier to at least somewhat make sense of it.

Even now though I'm still not positive if Noel is getting a lot of money because TT did and that makes NN an all star because the wind is currently blowing exactly 7.4 mph which if I multiply 7 by 4 and then divide by 2 because thats the number of times the mavs have been to the finals i get 14 which is the letter N numerically, and 2 N's is obviously NN for nerlens noel. And then I'm not sure about the Cousins part, I never was good with exponents and fractions.

You gotta carry the 1. Cousins is the remainder.

I am not at all unhappy that Noel took the QO. He is still unproven. It is such a freak thing for any human to grow to be 7 ft tall, and some bodies just can't take the strain. Noel has yet to prove his body can. I'd rather give him a year to prove he is worth max money and pay it to him than tie up 80 million dollars on a mediocre guy with bum knees.

Cuban has made some bad bets in his time, but I don't think this is one of them. (But then, I thought it didn't make sense to max out Nash, if he couldn't defend Mike Bibby.) If Noel plays like a max player here, odds are he'll want to stay, especially since we can offer him more years and lower taxes. If he doesn't live up to his potential, we have dodged a bullet.

I'm not one to gamble $8o million, even if its Mark's money. But then I live in New Mexico. There is a casino 7 minutes from my house and I've never been inside. I just can't stand to spend money and have nothing to show for it.

Bingo... Let Noel earn that money.

Everyone is playing nice. Its great to see Nerlens is smart enough to keep any discontent to himself, whether he is or not.

Lets go out with a bang for Dirks final season. Im ready to buy tickets

It's Noels decision to make, so as long as he plays hard as possible this season, I don't have an issue with anything so far.

It could be a long time if ever before we have another Mav like Dirk. So we shouldn't hold people up to his standards.

@espn_macmahon: After turning down a 4-year, $70M deal, Nerlens Noel will probably have to prove his worth off the Mavs' bench.
