I’m hoping a lot of you read this   -     so you can stop asking me  --   WHAT ARE WE GONNA DO ABOUT THE MAV’S ..????    I can’t go anywhere without getting that question   ….  And usually more than once 

I wish I knew   ….    But I think the championship days are gone and it might be awhile before they come back  --    this “plan” of blowing up a championship team so that you might get better never did makes any sense to me  --    and it doesn’t now either
Mavericks general manager Donnie Nelson said the other day  --   and I really like this guy by the way  -    the owner not so much  -    but Nelson I really like   -     nelson says he has no regrets about the decision they made but how could you not ?      maybe regrets is the wrong word   ….    Or maybe my definition of it is different than his   …..   but if you make a decision that blows up in your face   -   and we do agree this one has don’t we  -    at least to some degree   …..   you have to regret it ---      do it differently if you could do it again ?????   maybe not
But with the benefit of hindsight  --   you at least have to regret what has happened to this mavericks team  --   didn’t somebody say something about a bird in the hand compared to 2 in the bush or some such  -    did mavericks owner Mark Cuban think that free agents would flock to dallas becuz of those comfortable courtside chairs they sit in ???     maybe    ….     And maybe it’s time to set Dirk Nowitzki free too    ….    Maybe
And Is it possible that Cuban has now fallen behind cowboys owner Jerry Jones as the worst team owner in north texas   ……..??????
Naaahhh   ….    I didn’t think so either   …    but I did think about it
Now stop asking me
