Default GDT: Celtics (26-12) @ Mavericks (22-16)

Real test. On TNT tonight so you can guess what the pre show was about. That?s right, Luka the ball hog. (They did give him credit for his recent play and Chuck said current MVP)

Still no Green, DFS, Maxi

Celtics -3.5, Luka will need some help tonight if they?re going to remotely have a shot.

Does Frank not practice corner 3?s? That?s literally all he should do at practice. I liked Franks potential coming into the season thinking he?d work on his 3 ball. I always like giving lottery picks a second chance after a change of scenery, but he sucks.

I hope TNT is watching what this team is while Luka sits.

Luka went back to the locker room to get his ankle re-taped.

Luka twisted ankle and foul trouble

Teams like the Rockets won?t kill you for being out of position. The Celtics will.

Well, Bullock playing big minutes will happen with or without injuries so...

And he usually sucks. Same with Powell. When will this sorta crap end? They just don't earn their minutes.

Kidds game plan

1) shit the bed in the first
2) tread water in the second
3) shoot threes until we win or lose in the second half

Hardy with 15 points in 15 minutes is exactly what he is and I believe something the team needs. That type of offensive production doesn't grow on trees, but he needs to be able to do it without restriction. Meaning, he isn't gonna be a defender or whatever Kidd will bench him for. But that's not his game, so why draft him otherwise?

I kinda have given up on harping about it, but they shoulda been developing Hardy a lot sooner. They either let him play through his mistakes or just trade him.

Reality check, we have been beating up on scrubs thanks to the best player since LeBron but we are not on the Bucks, Celtics, Grizz level (not even close).

What?s really fucked is that JB on the original contract extension he wanted to sign might have been enough either as a player or asset to put us over the top. Guess we?ll never know.

Another team with 4 guys on the floor at all times who can dribble and penetrate a bit. We usually have 2 at best.

Hardy waxed that ass and whoever makes decisions for not developing him on this team that is 100% not a contender are fools and Ray Charles could see that.

It's malpractice to have this build around Luka.

Yea. Its typical to get burned out on harping on Hardy and Wood... Bullock and THJ. A 7 game winning streak will put the bitching on pause for a cpl weeks.

We all know we need help. Desperately. Most are aligned on what we need too.

The crux is that Kidd plays every regular season game like it's the playoffs. All of our defenders are hurt, so you need to rely on an all out offensive attack to win. And you frankly just need to do what you have to to make it to the postseason. THEN you can play slow ball.

Can't do it 82 games though. League is too quick for that.

We just don't have a good roster. If Luka isn't in God mode, we are getting blasted.

Our build is so unbalanced. 2 guys on the floor at any given time who can fn drivble. it's amazing how Cuban/ FO aren't embarrassed AF at this product.

This.

It takes Luka scoring 40+ points in order for the Mavs to beat bottom feeder teams. So when they do play an elite team and the Mavs supporting cast doesn't show up, they'll get blown out of the building like they did last night. The Mavs are simply an average team that will have some neat stretches, but some equally terrible stretches as well. Smells like a recipe for .500 ball.

Why? Because idiots that just look at the box score will think Tatum had a good game with the 4th quarter stat padding against scrubs. He played that much of the 4th quarter with a 20 point lead and Mavs starters on the bench.

Reminder for all to read Kirk Henderson's Mavs Moneyball article for last month "Help is not on the way". This team is screwed from a team building perspective. No assets, no draft capital, no salary space. Hope is the strategy.

I call BS and that there's always a move to be made in the NBA. Would hate to have my team's FO having the same woe-is-me thought process. Deals can be made. We have assets, draft capital, but no space though with contracts that can be moved. Is it as much as others? No, probably in the bottom 3rd of the league if you add it all up. But to say we have nothing and trades are impossible is naive. I doubt Kirk said zilch could be done but rather his opinion is that nothing will get done for various reasons, none of which carry a 0% probability.

Kirk Henderson has some of the worst basketball takes I've ever seen. It shocks me that he has any sort of reputation in "Mavs media."
