I like the Mavs. Unfortunately I've read a whole bunch of the Mavs potential trade moves -- and heard them on TV -- and I don't think they're realistic. If I had the choice of making a deal I would trade Butler's contract, Roddy Beaubois, some cash and this season's draft pick for Nash and Grant Hill. The Suns claim to love Nash, the face of the franchise. If so they need to be realistic and know they are just making up the numbers. There is no chance the Suns make the playoffs. No chance. If by some miracle they do, they'll get smashed. Is this what they want for there star franchise player? To go out without a blip. Dirk needs to call his buddy and tell him to request a trade to Dallas asap. Nash has this season and next season on his contract. So does Kidd. Grant Hill's expires this year, but if the Mavs don't win it all this year (which will be sad) they can always extend and give it one more shot. Hill is still an awesome one on one player who can cross people up and score in bunches. We all know how good Nash is. The Mavs can maybe even resign Butler if he is bought out, I don't know. What I do know is life is short. I'm sick of the Lakers and Celtics winning it. The Mavs have to roll the dice and go for it. Dirk and the boys ain't getting any younger. It's now or never.
