There were years when the NBA did not have the awards we know today. For those years, I had to create my own winners. Here are those award recipients.
The NBA has been around in one way or another since 1946-1947. That’s over 70 years of players, champions, and stats. However the league didn’t always have 30 teams, the game wasn’t always played the same way, at one point there were two leagues, and not all stats that we consider important today were tracked in the early days.
Not a lot of words in this one. Just predictions. Here’s how I think the 2019-2020 NBA season will shake out.
An entire year late but today we look back at my scouting report from the 2013 NBA draft. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.
After some deliberation I’ve decided to go ahead and do a Free Agency Tracker and update it live. I’ll be using the template from my previous free agency piece but with some names moved around. I did not list every free agent but listed most of the ones that either matter or could end up on the Mavericks.
It’s that time of year again. Mavs fans are wondering what big name free agent the Mavs are going to lure in. This is the 9th year of this cycle and yet somehow Mavs fans remain optimistic. I love it, honestly, but I can’t join in the optimism. Every year there’s been a new reason that this year is different, and every year we have to accept that it isn’t.
Nicola Brussino, Salah Mejri, Maxi Kleber. The Mavs continue their run of signing mysterious foreign players with the addition of Aussie Ryan Broekhoff.
Another year, another Mavs Free Agency. There will be no mass pursuit of big fish, but Deandre Jordan is back on the Mavs radar. With his name being the only one floated publicly, he’ll definitely be a focus of this list but I do want to focus on some under the radar moves as well.
While I had heard Cleveland’s name before I have to admit I hadn’t paid him much mind. Most people seem to be impressed by his athleticism and a highlight package search does bring up a lot of lob catches but that’s not the only aspect of his game that is impressive. I also noticed that he likes to shoot off the dribble and does most of his damage in the mid-range. Currently, only Harrison Barnes really does much work in the mid-range for the Mavs so this would be welcomed on our offense. I also noticed that he has good timing on defense and uses his length and athleticism to get blocks both on and off the ball. Let’s dig deeper.
Another NBA Season is upon us so Josh and I sat down after all of the work of the previous week to make some predictions on how this season will play out. Who wins MVP? Who is Most Improved? and of course, who hoists the Larry O’Brien when it’s all said and done.
