The youth movement

In the past few seasons it has been painfully obvious that the Dallas Mavericks needed to start thinking about the future. With Dirk reaching the crisp age of 38 this past summer he should not be leading the team in scoring as he always has in the past. But with Dallas’ long and painful relationship with the Draft being well documented, a real youth movement had yet to begin until arguably last season.

Is this the Chandler Parsons we’ve been waiting for?

In the offseason of 2014 the Mavericks made a huge deal to steal Chandler Parsons from the Rockets and sign him to a 3 year 46 million dollar contract. At the time this seemed like a safe gamble given that Parsons had made huge developments during his first years in Houston and would most likely continue this upward swing.

Will the Mavs be ready come playoffs?

Many things have changed since the beginning of the season. The Mavericks have gained All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo and Amar’e Stoudemire. They’ve shipped out promising big man Brandon Wright, Jameer Nelson, Jae Crowder, and cut Ricky Ledo. Bernard “Sarge” James also made a homecoming trip back in Dallas. A lot has happened in a short amount of time, but one thing has stayed the same, the hunger for a championship.

Dallas Mavericks secret weapon

Every basketball fan in the country has heard of the unstoppable force known as RUN DMC, but there’s more to the Mavericks than just Dirk, Monta, and Chandler Parsons. Jameer Nelson and Tyson Chandler round out the starting five but the Mavericks secret weapon lies outside of the starting line up. He comes off the bench and doesn’t get any of the credit he deserves, his name is Jae Crowder.

Who has been the Mavs MVP so far?

With the first month of basketball in the books, and the Mavericks looking at an impressive 12-5 record, it has started to become clear who the Mavericks MVP has been and most likely will be for the rest of the season. Despite the entire team playing some of the best basketball of their individual careers, only one player could be chosen for the first month MVP.

How the Mavs can get back on track

With the 105-96 loss to the hated Miami Heat fresh in the books, it is clear the Mavericks have missed a few beats in the first 7 games of the season. Being that it still is early in the season you shouldn’t be too worried about these miscues but I still think it is important to address them now so they don’t become serious problems in the future.

Gal Mekel, Bernard James, and Charlie Villanueva fighting for last two spots

Over the past few days there has been some talk that the Mavericks are exploring trades for Gal Mekel or Bernard James in order to free up a roster spot for possibly Charlie Villanueva. The question is, is it worth it?

What we learned from the first pre-season game

Despite the Mavericks taking a loss in their first pre-season game to the Houston Rockets, a few key things were learned about some of the players and the NBA in general. I know it was only 1 pre-season game, but this was definitely a precursor for what to expect come regular season.

With the 3-way fight for the starting point guard spot headlining this years camp, there is sure to be some key battles for multiple positions.

Who will be the Mavs new 6th man this season?

For the last few seasons, MFFL’s have gotten used to Vince Carter coming off the bench and providing some instant offense for the Mavericks. But this year things will be different. Now that Vince has signed with the Memphis Grizzlies, some one else must step up and fill his shoes. In my eyes, and most likely Rick Carlisle’s eyes, there are only 3 real options in this decision.

Tyson Chandler will prove the doubters wrong, again.

Over the summer one of the Mavericks fan base’s biggest dreams came true. Tyson Chandler had returned to the city he brought a championship. While he may not be the same player he was a few seasons ago, I believe that he is still elite and so does Tyson.
