Mavs Mid-Season Report Card

Before the season I predicted the Mavs would make the playoffs but I had them in the 7-8 range. When we checked in for our first quarter report card, the Mavs had made their way up to the 2 seed but things have changed since then. Continue reading Mavs Mid-Season Report Card

Should the Mavs make a trade?

The idea of the Mavericks making a trade has led to much confrontation among MFFL’s. While some say we need a big body (including the front office according to Woj), others say we need a defensive wing. Then you have those that say that we don’t need to make a move at all. They either bring up the ghost of Rondo past, or the fear of ruining team chemistry.  Continue reading Should the Mavs make a trade?

Mavs 1st Quarter Report Card

Before the season I predicted the Mavs would make the playoffs but I had them in the 7-8 range. However with some of the top teams underperforming for different reasons (Blazers and Warriors injuries, Jazz chemistry) the Mavs looked to be in even better position to make the playoffs, perhaps a 4-5 seed. It appears Luka has other plans, though and has carried the Mavs all the way to the 2 seed one fourth of the way through the season. Continue reading Mavs 1st Quarter Report Card

NBA Draft Sleeper: Quinndary Weatherspoon

I have to give myself credit for being an early believer in Quinndary. I went to watch Mississippi State to scout his brother and he jumped off the screen to me. I was shocked to not find him on any boards but that changed soon after. I love his game and feel like he is the type of guy that can “come out of nowhere” and be a contributor, maybe even a starter, for some team down the road.

NBA Draft Sleeper Profile: Carsen Edwards

If you’ve listened to a single episode of the 3rd Round Picks podcast or follow me on twitter you’ve likely heard me talk about Carsen Edwards. It was likely no surprise that he ended up in my top 15 when the board came out. In short, I love Carsen Edwards. I love his game, I love his personality, and I believe he’s going to be around for a long time.  Continue reading NBA Draft Sleeper Profile: Carsen Edwards

NBA Draft Sleeper Profile: Jaylen Nowell

Jaylen Nowell caught my by surprise. I got around to scouting Washington pretty early in the process but all the hype was around Thybulle. I was barely paying attention to Nowell because he wasn’t on many people’s boards but I couldn’t help to notice his talent. Others started taking notice around that time as well and he continued to get better as the season went on. I did not know where he would land on my board when I sat down to put it together but I only had a slight hesitation about putting him at 12.  Continue reading NBA Draft Sleeper Profile: Jaylen Nowell
