This is definitely the homer in me, but I think if KP plays this whole series, the Mavs might be the ones basking in upset glory right now.

Mavs played the Nugs really well in the regular season, but man I don't know. Jokic and Murray are at another level right now.

I didn't mean that the Mavs would beat the Nuggets. I mean that they might have beaten the Clippers.

Also, if there was any question before, it should be settled already; Jokic is the best passing center in NBA history. Yes, better than Walton. Granted, we didn't get to see Sabonis in his prime, but Jokic has earned that title.

Jokic might be my favorite non-Maverick player. I just love his game, love watching him play. Great passers have always been my favorite thing to watch.
Agree. I absolutely love his size and game. Too bad he's not such a great 3-pt shooter. He wouldn't fit with the Mavs. :-O

Miami might be better now than when they had LeBron and Wade

Dragic also seems like a decent player. I'm actually a little sad that we didn't get him this summer. He definitely would have been better than Wright.

I do remember Butler getting flak for joining Miami and wasting his career away. Whoops.

With Dragic and KP there's a damn good chance we are in the WCF. Dragics stat history is all over the place, but he has been a real solid player for years.

Gotta hand it to Pat Riley. The old man still knows how to run the hell out of an NBA franchise.

Cuban and Riley letting their egos get in the way of that deal.

Just think, we could’ve had Dragic (Luka friend and mentor and certified baller) but the Mavs insisted on Derrick Jones Jr. who can hardly crack Miami’s playoff rotation. Instead we got an albatross in Delon and let the excess space go to waste. Because we were waiting for a washed Danny Green to play us? MBT wayyyyy over thought that one. And I kind of like Jones Jr.

We actually have no idea what happened with the Dragic deal. It was reported weirdly.

Yeah, both sides leaked incorrect info to save face afterwards.

My best guess is that the Mavs ultimately decided that Delon Wright + Danny Green (who they didn't even get, but who was stringing them along at the time) was a better use of their cap space than Dragic.

This is true. We may never know exactly what went down unless Cuban goes back on his Adderall or whatever and starts talking again. But there is perhaps a decent chance that what Miami said is true: they had a deal in place for Dragic and Dallas reneged. Dallas saves face by saying they had agreed to something else when they maybe thought they could have something they liked better than Dragic lined up, and then it didnít come to fruition.

What makes you think they BOTH leaked incorrect info? What would be the purpose? So as not to offend the almost traded players? The whole thing was very strange. Either Miami or Dallas saw something they liked better and backed out and the aggrieved party complained aloud.

Obviously it’s in the past, my pint was just that there is a good chance we passed on Dragic. Which isn’t even that big a whiff. Except the alternative turned out to be beyond underwhelming: Delon (now negative value) and wasted cap space. Dragic worst case was an expiring buddy of Luka. Best case he’s healthy and vaults us to a 3 or 4 seed and maybe we re-sign him. Of course, they could’ve also landed something better potentially, but it didn’t work out that way.

Rmemeber that Miami had to clear cap space for Butler so Mavs thought they had more of a drivers seat for negotiations. But as we know, good gms can clear up space in many ways. Dallas likely wanted an extra piece or two abd miami wouldn’t have it.

Damn, this Lakers-Nuggets game was intense! Great duel between Jokic and Davis to close it out. I said it was put up or shut up time for AD, and he responds with a cold blooded game-winner.
