Mark Cuban is Selling the Mavs' "Good Summer." We Buying?

   Rinse. Repeat. Believe?
   Duplicating the same depressing spin cycle from last summer, Mavs owner Mark Cuban is again selling the fact that his team is enjoying a "good summer" and is better off after missing out on another big-name free-agent target. In 2012 it was Deron Williams. And now, of course, Dwight Howard.
   "I think we've put ourselves in a spot where we're in a better spot than we were at if we got just the one max-out deal," Cuban said during the Mavs' summer-league game Wednesday night. "I think it'd be better shorter and longer term. I don't want to make that sound the wrong way. I think we'll be better this year because we added five good players or more."
   Last summer the Mavs whiffed on Williams, then settled for signing mediocre players to one-year deals and wound up 41-41 and snapping their run of 12 consecutive playoffs. This year?

  1. My guess is they'll be trying to amnesty Ellis by year 3.
    What a joke.

  2. So.... if the Mavs wind up 42-40 next season, it will be considered a success? Been a DM fan since I was a kid, (even in their down years). But when owners start worrying more about the bottom line, rather than the finish line, it usually doesn't bode well.

    Biggest question: how much longer does Cuban endure this before moving on to a new toy? My guess is when Dirk retires, he will explore options to sell. Let it be someone else's problem because the next D.A.D. (decade after Dirk) doesn't look pretty at all.

  3. You know, rationalizations are more important than sex.

    Oh yeah, how so?

    When was the last time you went more than two weeks without a rationalization?

  7. Funny how the media won't buy what the Cowboys or Mavericks put out, but they are Harry Homers with the Texas Rangers.

  8. Dwight Howard's best days were left in Magic-land...can't win with him on the team, on the FT line or the bench!

    Superman's kryptonite...bad back, bad FT's & bad attitude.
