THE STORY: The Dallas Mavericks have had quite a week in the spotlight, but finally we have some actual on the court business to attend to. Dirk and Co. come back from the All-Star break and....well, they stay in the City of Angels to face off against the Lakers. On national television because hey why not!
It remains to be seen if the events of this week will affect the on-court product, but my guess would be it won’t. The team will still play hard, they’ll play some young guys, Dirk will play limited minutes, and hopefully they’ll lose a close, fun one. That’s all I’m rooting for the rest of the season. Let’s go!
