The Dallas Mavericks are all in with their new 2 star core.

They traded two lottery picks to move up and get Luka Doncic.

They sent the other lottery pick on their roster, Dennis Smith Jr.) along with Wesley Matthews, DeAndre Jordan, and two future first-round picks (one protected, one not) to the Knicks for Kristaps Porzingis, Tim Hardaway Jr., Courtney Lee, and Trey Burke.

Thats it. The new star core of the new Mavs is ready to launch.

Since then they've been rounding out the roster and have yet to acquire a 3rd proven NBA Star but do have some nice pieces and maybe another young player will emerge into stardom.

Do they have enough to be a Western Playoff team?

I don’t think they are a playoff team but maybe if KP says healthy keeps his nose clean and doesn’t assault any more women or get beat up in any more bar fights or anything it’s possible plus boban could be a top option

I used to be dayman I like parties I like fun I want to live in a hamburger bun Sent to you from outer space "And Peja with the dagger."-balldontliez on 11/15/10 when Peja hit a 3 to put the hornets up 84-75 with 9 MIN LEFT! Guess who won the game? That's right, the mavericks.

Is it bad that I think Wright will be a disappointment?

Hope this will turn into a real message board. Right now I have a hard time imagining this as a replacement for the old site.

It seems to be more of a comment section for news articles moreso than a message board. Not trying to be a negative nelly or anything, just an observation

We've made similar observations and Fish is aware of it. Has plans to address it given some time.

Yeah, you're not being negative. Constructive is good. The format is different and takes some getting used to but in fact do work for community.

It works for casual comments on articles. A message board offers a lot more and that´s taking into account that the move to 247 eliminated some options (for example polls). We don´t need something super flashy but the basics need to be there. I understand that this is a work in progess and am willing to be patient but I will leave if the final design/format looks anything like the current one.

I appreciate all efforts undertaken in order to get us as an comnunity back together as this is the true reason we're all here. Sure, Fish is our moderator with extra insights, but we always come back to share our minds about what's happening.

So as much as I understand Fish looking for a place that works for him, I do the same. This place needs to change substantially to work for me.

The last phase from the announcement of the end of 247 on until now was not well communicated in terms of the precise future of our community. I got the sense that Fish, next to his own goal to find a place for himself, did not really worry about us as a community. He's not exactly the center of this board - he's bringing it together, yes, but we're bringing it to life.

If he would care more about us, he'd act/write differently, but I'm afraid he doesn't really get this.

He cares about you as a customer or potential customer, the community was always the posters.

Hi All, I was an active, posting member for a lot of years, going back to when ChefEd, TMOGE, Flamethrower (RIP), heck even StereophonicGuy were commenting regularly. I never stopped reading the boards on a regular basis, but somehow lost my account when we switched to 24/7 (or one of the other switches?) and became a reader only. After '06 there wasn't much to say until we got the job done, and then in '11 when we got the job done there wasn't much to say because it spoke for itself! Now that Fish is asking for sign-ups, I guess I'm (partially) coming out of retirement to bump the participant numbers (plus Dahlsim asked for some posts to test this thing out).
Thanks for having me back, and let's make this (keep this) the best spot for new on our beloved Mavs!

I’m been following for years. Had a few posts years back. Seems like a good time to get more into it. Go Mavs!
