THE STORY: I don’t know about you guys but my day got off to a weird start listening to the Bill Simmons podcast on the Ringer. He and Marc Stein were talking about trade destinations for Anthony Davis if he decides to opt out of the super max extension he’s eligible for this summer. And Simmons threw out a bomb he’s waded around for a few weeks: he thinks the Dallas Mavericks should be a destination.
So I haven’t been able to get that thought out of my head, despite how ridiculous it is, all freaking day. With that in mind, get ready to enjoy the Mavericks playing off no rest but following an outstanding victory over the Portland Trail Blazers. Let’s see how the guys react to even more high intensity basketball.
