I sit here, day after day, wondering what the Mavs FO could possibly be waiting on. And as I sit here, waiting and wondering, I like the rest of you read the daily rumor mills and wonder what might be for my Mavs. Are Donnie and Cuban paying attention? Do they not see all of the wonderful ideas that are being sprayed all over the internet? Why on Earth would the not go out there and trade Roddy B, Dojo and Kaman for Cousins? Are they insane? Then I calm myself and look at the reality of the situation and a peaceful understanding warms me over and I know it's all going to be ok.
At some point within the next 16 days (NBA trade deadline) there are going to be some harsh realizations by several teams in the league. Owner to FO - " You know guys....it's looking like we aren't going to be able to win this whole thing after all....and that luxury tax thing we keep avoiding to talk about? I am not so keen on it." FO to anyone who will listen - " FIRE SALE!!!"
Rest assured, MFFL's, there are names that will be shopped before the 21st that haven't been mentioned as of yet. It is just going to take a dose of reality by some of the current "dreamers" of the league to bring out. I, for one have great confidence in Cuban and the boys to make the right moves. Do I see a blockbuster ahead for the Mavs? Depends on what you call a blockbuster. As far as I am concerned, right now I just want to see an improvement.
