Dallas Mavericks Preview

Dallas was the victim of the biggest upset in NBA playoff history, and they did nothing to improve their team during the offseason. Oh wait, they named Jerry Stackhouse the starting SG and Jason Terry is coming off the bench. I don’t think that’s an improvement. Terry still needs to get his minutes to help this team win.

Projected starting lineup with last year’s stats:

Key Bench Players

Eddie Jones
Jason Terry
Maurice Ager
DeSagana Diop
Devean George

I like Ager and wonder what he could do with good minutes, but I don’t think we’ll see it this year. Josh Howard is very good, but he still doesn’t do enough outside of scoring and rebounding for me. Dirk is great.
