Josh is "Sorry"

Well, better late than never I guess, Josh comes out and says he is sorry for pretty much everything that has gone south with him over the past 7 months...

I love this country and I appreciate this country and if it wasn't for this country, I wouldn't be playing basketball and wouldn't be talking to you,'' Howard told the overflow media crowd. "I'm sorry. ... I'm sorry. ... I'd like to state that I truly and really am sorry for everything that's happened in the past five months with me. This is not the way I carry myself. This is not how I want to be portrayed, and I really and truly am sorry to everybody that I offended. I'm upset with myself and the way I've acted the past months. I truly and really am sorry."

 The Mavs really have a lot riding on this. Its amazing how persistent they have been in thinking that a training camp together will get Josh and Jason on the same page to push us over the top.

This statement will probably get some of his critics off his back through camp until he starts playing meaningful games again.

Kevin Sherrington from the DMNews has pointed out that Josh is the only one to not fully benefit from the Kidd trade, and this seems to be what the Mavs organization is resting the season on...

Most members of the media who favored the Kidd trade - guilty - figured no one would benefit more than Howard.

And why not? He's the most athletic player on the roster, an energetic, opportunistic talent...

Here's why: Instead of filling a lane and looking for a signature Kidd pass, Howard seemed content to drift on the ripples of a break. Maybe he was simply used to his role as an innocent bystander while Harris took off on another mad one-man dash.

The Mavs really have a lot riding on this. Its amazing how persistent they have been in thinking that a training camp together will get Josh and Jason on the same page to push us over the top.

 Cuban has now come out and said that about half the team was asking to be traded last year because of Avery...

"I knew after I had so many people asking to be traded," Cuban said. "I mean, I had to deal with either the players and moving them or the coach and moving him."

 "As you started looking deeper and deeper and deeper into things, we didn't have a choice," Cuban said. "I didn't want to fire him. That wasn't my goal."
