Yes F'n ridiculous comments from that dude. I guess Jordan just didn't have what it took until Pippen showed up. You would think an all time great like Jordan wouldn't need another HOF to finally win.

After hearing Luka and Kidd’s post game comments it sounds like they realize it’s over, but also know they need to use this as a learning experience. Re-tool for next year.

Mavs are looking like the Nuggets looked vs the Warriors in the 1st round

The only thing is Denver at least gets back Murray and Porter next year.

Mavs need to be aggressive and get some more talent in here to help Luka get to the Finals

Likely means we need to resign Brunson and flip to a team that needs a PG for something more useful such a multi dimensional large guard or wing like a Bane or Bey.

Cuban will likely re-tool with the same roster only to have Mavs fans say next post season that Luka just didn't do enough to win.

Pretty sure the shot quality website will say we should have this game by 110-102, or something like that, based on the quality of the shots. Even our defense was okay today. The truth is we could have 2 of these games, but lost because we really don't have a plan B with this roster.

Why didn’t the Mavs use their pick and rolls?

He got absolutely destroyed this series on the defensive end of the floor.

Yea, Luka has played really bad defense. Game2 first half was solid but everything before and after has been a big reason why Wiggins looks like a superstar. Luka isn't moving his feet well, getting beat off the 1v1 dribble and getting blown by on close-outs if he even does close out.

JB still keeps falling asleep defensively. He gave up a cpl O-rebs and open 3s just by not paying attention to his own man. This keeps happening. Those 2 guys had to be a lot better defensively in order to win this series.

Bullock and DFS are what they are. Solid defenders that can knock down wide open 3s and really nothing else. No ball skills.

Mavs just have tired legs. I know everyone is tired, but the amount of minutes and reliance on 6 guys is D'Antoni-esque. Bullock missing every shot, Kleber no show, and Lukas D...they are obviously connected. As people mentioned, the shot chart says we win this game.

On top of that, we are outmatched. It is what it is. I just won't listen to some BS narrative that if Luka played better D, then we're off to the promise land. Such misguided takes will eventually send him to another team if echoed enough.

You can see why I questioned the 3pt shooting at the beginning of the year.

This is straight from Kidd.

Like I said before Luka is a phenomenal talent but as mavs fans we should all be honest and state he does need to work on being better defensively or else teams will continue to attack him in the playoffs.


Jason Kidd said that Luka Doncic has to evolve and to defend. He said the model for Luka is LeBron James who controls the game at both ends.

Kidd said Luka is trying to trend away from being “Harden” and the goal is to be LeBron.

An actually fit and lighter Luka would be 50% better on D just from an endurance and quickness standpoint

Teams will always attack the opposing team's best player because of their usage rate. It's just common sense. And Luka will never be prime Lebron on defense. Building those expectations is unreasonable.

Luka hasn't been good at D this series, but it's not the deciding factor at all. And if that calf injury hadn't happened, then we might not even be talking about this.
