Because I am a glutton for punishment.
Not sure what to think of this team. I'm really starting to like the Tyson Chandler pick up, and think a duo of him and Haywood make a decent center rotation. Matrix and Tuff Juice need to find their roles on this team, need consistent scoring from Butler and a good all around game from Marion. Read that Carlise is going to encourage Marion to take more shots, not sure if I like that or not.
Need Roddy B to come back strong and limit JET's minutes. Need Jason Kidd's minutes to also be limited during the regular season. Don't really expect much out of DoJo, Berra or Stephenson.
I'd like to think the Mavs can get to 50+ wins this year and stay in the top 4 in the west. Think it really all comes down to how Roddy B progresses this year and what kind of trade we will inevitably make at mid season.
I'm going to go ahead and call 51-31 second round of playoffs. Pretty much more of the same disappointment for a life long Mavs fan.
