Big Pimpin’ Dallas Mavericks’ Style ……….Bitches That They Are !

Big Pimpin’ Dallas Mavericks’ Style …….Bitches That They Are !

I don’t know of any other way to suggest this but in watching the Dallas Mavericks lose to the Golden State Warriors, who only had six physically healthy players suited up. Well, it suggests everything that I’ve come to think about the Dallas Mavericks. They’re an extremely soft team, not only physically but also mentally as well. And this is epitomized by the attitude of their owner, Mark Cuban . Egotistical , narcissistic but above all critical of others when they’re not all in agreement with his thought process.

This Mavericks’ team is resplendent with a plethora of stars but little in the way of leadership. And that is with seasoned veterans such as Dirk Nowitzki, Jason Kidd , Jason Terry and Shawn Marion. To make matters worse, the the team is highly overpaid and has given little back in return by way of anything tangible in terms of success. This club has continually underachieved despite all of the lavish spending and the perception that it is one of the marquee teams in the NBA. The fact of the matter is, they’re a good regular season team but come the postseason they become doormat that many of the elite teams in the NBA choose to wipe their feet on.

Last night’s game between these two Western Conference team saw the Golden State Warriors with eight players on the bench of the mandated twelve but only six ready to play. The Warriors and the Dallas Mavericks set out to play a game and let every ardent fan of the game see what the NBA will be proffering up to their patrons for the season. Well, the Warriors did little to disappoint as they completely overwhelmed the Mavericks with their resiliency and resolve as a team. Unfortunately,for the Mavericks they had no answer for the Warriors’ Monta Ellis, Anthony Morrow, Vladimir Radmanovic or their rookie sensation Steph Curry. As they went about decimating the Mavericks’ defense and made them look like very much like a D-league NBA representative
team.

Now pardon me for saying this, when your franchise is said to be worth
in excess of $ 400 million and on appearance it seems to be worth not more than a plug nickel . Then there’s a great deal to be said for the pomp and bloviated opinions of Mark Cuban and the persona of his franchise. They’ve become more accustomed to being beaten up on, more than a hooker is by her pimp ‘for not turning enough tricks’. And ‘tricks’, it appears to be something that the Mavericks haven’t been able to turn in quite some time. OK, so they made it to the postseason last year and they beat a San Antonio Spurs’ team that was missing several of its top players. But having done so, in the conference semi finals they melted like butter against a hot knife.

Ellis, Morrow lead Warriors past Mavericks 111-103

DALLAS (AP)—Golden State was down to eight healthy players—and used only six. Warriors coach Don Nelson wasn’t with the team as he recovers from pneumonia. Still, Monta Ellis(notes) and Stephen Curry(notes) wouldn’t let injuries or sickness become an excuse.

Ellis scored 13 of his season-high 37 points in the fourth quarter, Curry added 11 of his 18 points in the final 4 minutes and the Warriors ended Dallas’ five-game winning streak with a 111-103 victory over the short-handed Mavericks on Tuesday night.

“Coming into this game, we had nothing to lose,” said assistant coach Keith Smart, who filled in for Nelson. “The worst case is they blow us out and we move on to (Wednesday night’s game in San Antonio). But our guys have a lot of character. They played hard together and made the right decisions.”

This season, the Dallas Mavericks appear to have started off strong but their inconsistency is already beginning to set in. The Golden State Warriors for their part are looking to take the next step and place themselves amongst the elite teams within the Western Conference. And in doing so, it would further suggest to their fans that they’re ready to show them what they’ve been missing out on for such a long time. In place of Don Nelson as coach of the team last night , there on the sidelines was his assistant, Keith Smart. Nelson was unable to participate as he was sidelined with a bout of pneumonia. His return isn’t anticipated for another week or two. Smart, for his part showed that he may well be the coach in waiting, once Nelson is ready to step down from his position as coach of the team.

The Mavericks for their part, to my mind are no closer to winning an NBA title than the Democrats are about the direction that the party now seems to be heading in.The Dallas Mavericks as an organization give all the semblance of being an organized and efficiently ran organization. But in essence,they’re only playing at being that. They’re a complete mess but Mark Cuban would rather not have you see the warts and all mess,that there is inside of his franchise.

And for Mavericks’ coach, Rick Carlisle and his assistant coaching staff of Terry Stotts, Dwayne Casey and Tom Sterner. This was hardly the type of response they’d have expected from this team with the resultant 111-103 loss to the Golden State Warriors. But it seems to be something that’s emblematic of the team and their inconsistency. They either play down to the level of an opponent or at times they’re able to play with a high degree of efficiency.There does not appear to be a happy medium for the Mavericks. Is it any wonder that they’re viewed as one of the softer teams around the NBA ? And that’s not just from a physical standpoint but also when it comes to the mental aspect of their game. It’s now becoming a view that’s being widely shared across the NBA and amongst the fans, themselves.

And for the Golden State Warriors ,though on the face of it the win might not seem that much. But having been able to defeat a team with just six healthy players from its entire roster shows that they’re not at all prepared to bow down and become one of the lesser beings within the NBA fraternity. That’s left to the likes of the Los Angeles Clippers, New York Knicks, New Jersey Nets and the Charlotte Bobcats. For those particular franchises, mediocrity nowadays goes hand in hand, just as much turkey and Thanksgiving are part of a solemn festivity that we can all feel comfortable with.

What do you think of the Dallas Mavericks as an NBA franchise ? Good, bad, indifferent or just simply overrated just as their counterpart in the NFL – the Dallas Cowboys ?

      They say in some part of the world each of us has a twin. It just so happens yours’ is playing in the NBA for the Mavericks . Who knew ?

      How bad was that loss last night for the team ? I mean they lost to 6 guys – not the full complement of the Warriors’ roster . How lame ! These are no closer to winning an NBA title than I am of having sex with Charlize Theron, Halle Berry and Gabrielle Union , all on the same damn night.

      Charlize Theron gives me a real _*rd on , I’d say !

  1. I didn’t see that game but I wouldn’t read that much into it. Come June, the Mavs will be making a serious run while the Golden State Warriors will still be, well… the Golden State Warriors.

      Perhaps we shouldn’t all read that much into it but what does it suggest to you about a team such as the Mavericks ?
      Here you have a roster laden with stars in a game that they should’ve won handily . And they ended up looking as if they didn’t even belong on the court and this was a home game by the way at the American Airlines Center.

      Had this been an NFL game would you still be of the same opinion ? I know there the season is merely one of just sixteen games instead of the 82 that’s played in the NBA. But nonetheless the effort put forth by Cuban’s Mavericks was embarrassing and it embodies what they’ve been about over the years. They’ll no doubt make the playoffs but I repeat .…’the Dallas Mavericks will not win the NBA championship … the Dallas Mavericks will no win the NBA champioonship’ ! They’re simply just a good regular season team with one great player and one above average player in Kidd and Nowitzki.

      Have a great Thanksgiving and my regards to you and the immediate family !

  2. Speaking of losses, heartbreaking loss by the magic last night. White Chocolate’s gotta make those free throws and Barnes has to put a body on Beasley.

    Miami got two key offensive rebounds late in the game to seal the deal. I have two words for Van Gundy and the boys. BOX OUT!

    Other than the Nets and the Knicks there mightn’t be a softer team in all of the NBA, than the Dallas Mavericks. Come the postseason this team’ll melt like butter against a hot knife. There’s no leadership there and Jason Kidd is slowly approaching his ‘sell by date’ !

    As for Mark Cuban he is a douche-bag and a whining pompous a-hole to boot !

    I don’t that you’d really want Cuban owning your Dodgers ? I think that Frank McCourt , Ned Colletti and Joe Torre have done a pretty sound job bringing them back to some semblance of respectability. At the same times you’ve got a very good roster in place there. And with Manny, Ethier , Loney and Kemp in place. The team really ought to do well over the next couple of years.

  4. Ha, Sorry I’ve been away for a week for Thanksgiving. Hope yours was good! I didn’t catch this game but read about it. I’m a fan of Cuban, since he’s one of the few owners that DOES stand up to the commissioner and the league, but the team he constructed isn’t all that great. I think they’ll still make the playoffs though!

      That’s the only saving grace that the Mavericks continually have year in , year out. After that they simply melt under the pressure as they’re simply not good enough when they face real adversity within the league and in particular the playoffs.

      As to Thanksgiving , I thoroughly enjoyed it. Albeit that I then had to contend with a bunch of absolutely horrendous NFL games ! They were all too one sided and about as competitive as a battle between the French military and the German army during WW II.

      Thanks for the comps ! I actually spent Thanksgiving Day weekend in Daytona Beach with friends at a condo timeshare, there. Three couples in all, were there over the long weekend.

      I didn’t really take in any of the NFL games on Thanksgiving as I found them all to be one big complete bore ! Each of the losing teams in question were essentially none competitive from the get-go !

      So instead I just watched the Godfather trilogy as it was being shown on cable television. Still to this day that trilogy is amongst my all time favorite films. I love the work of both De Niro and Pacino !

      De Niro and Pacino in the diner scene from the movie ‘Heat’ . My own personal all time favorite crime caper movie. Nothing else comes to matching it in intensity or in terms of the acting or the action as it unfolds over the entire movie. One their very best together !
