Let's try running this feature again. Simple enough question to get it going again.
Where would the Mavericks be had Dirk not missed the first 28 games of the 2012-13 season -- almost exactly a third of the year at 34%.
Obviously, even being back it's still been a struggle to get back to the level he's accustom to. There's also been problems with his teammates adjusting to each other and to Dirk.
Currently, the Mavericks are sitting at a 21-28 record. Wins come at a premium, especially against the elite teams in the NBA. Of course, you'd have to think an 11-time All-Star would have some sort of effect on that, regardless of how healthy he was.
What have you, Mavericks nation? What kind of difference would Dirk have made?
How many more wins would the Mavericks have on their 21-28 record if Dirk had played every game this season?
