Is it because Vince exceeded expectations last year? Not exactly. He did, but he shouldn’t have. It was his worst year yet, career lows in points, second-lowest assists, worst shooting percentage—it’s not his fault y’all expected him to be terrible.
Is it because Vince was one of the only Mavericks capable of bringing some offense on his own? Sure, but why Vince and not Delonte, who at this point in his career creates as much offense, plays better defense, can pass a little bit, and has joints that work.
Is it because they were shallow at his position, SG? Well, they hadn't as yet traded for O.J. Mayo, but they do have a plethora of guards and could have had Delonte at the same position.
Well, I have a guess.
