The cap space generated allowed us to acquire the 24th pick (which turned to Omax) and the contract of Holmes which we did then send to Washington along with that pick that we got from OKC at the deadline for Gafford.

OKC has been secretly helping the Mavs ever since the 2023 Draft."

So in some way/fashion directly or indirectly, OKC helped us get Lively, Gafford, and OMAX? hell yeah

OKC is really well-run org though so I wouldn't be questioning their motives. I'm glad they are good trading partners with us as we need as many as we can get.

Cuban burned some bridges back in the day and hopefully new FO and ownership will mend those.

If by "old school coaching methods," you mean just being an asshole, maybe.

[MacMahon] A @StatsWilliams special: There have been three rookies with at least 10 points and 15 rebounds in elimination wins since 1980. Magic Johnson, David Robinson, Dereck Lively II

Someone on r/Mavericks pointed out, and I can't believe nobody else has noticed this yet- Jason Kidd is now the first coach in Mavericks history to reach the Western Conference Finals twice.

It might be an unpopular opinion but Kidd has won the coaching battle in the last two series. He forced both teams to play a style that favored the Mavs.

Yeah Nico finally gave the Mavs some strengths and Kidd maximized it.

We're back in the WCF which is great, but when you look at how Luka and Kyrie are underperforming, it's clear that Kidd has done something special.

Took me 3 hours, but I got tickets for game 3. Ticketmaster is the worst.

Top two MVP candidates are out. Karma is a funny thing.

Yep I mentioned this a few days ago

The problem.is kidd is not well liked here so no one has bothered to praise him for such a feat.

Most fans wanted him fired and probably still do 😂

But Kidd is a solid coach imo and he tends to relate to players much better than Rick ever did
