I really don't even watch basketball, so I'm not trying trying to be a pretend expert here. But from my outsiders POV that seems like flawed logic. You breakup a proven championship team, without ever giving then a chance to repeat, in the hopes of acquiring future players who may or may not sign, and may or may not recreate what the 2011 team was able to.
A lot of IF's
And I'm pretty certain there's nobody in 2012 free agency that can do what Chandelor does. There's only like 3 or 4 guys on planet earth really.
Only time will tell if the strategy pays off. But Cuban probably figured he had two options: 1) re-sign Chandler, giving the Mavs one more year at serious contention, but possibly limiting their future cap space and thereby hindering their chances to build a consistent contender beyond 2011-12; or 2) let Chandler walk, greatly diminishing the 2011-12 squad's chances of winning it all, but hopefully establishing the cap space to form a consistent contender from 2012-13 and on.
I wouldn't be surprised if the possibility of signing Dwight Howard this summer didn't play into that strategy.
Spot on, Todd. Dallas isn't the only team that has unloaded players in an attempt to clear cap space.
Sure, it's supposed to be entertainment. It fails to entertain many, however.
Nails on a chalkboard. Cant stand the loudmouth. Hate how he will over enunciate and stress syllables while he's screaming at someone. Worst guy on TV EVER
