I sad to say that the Mavericks will never win a championship with Dirk. I have sensed this for years and will continue to do so. I am a Mavs fan but I am sick of all this experimenting with putting people around Dirk thinking it will make a difference. It will not. Dirk puts butts in the seats and that's it. I would fire Donnie Nelson and get a real GM who knows how to evaluate talent and rebuild this team through the draft or sell the team to a owner not so visible who allow his GM to do the work. Mark Cuban is heck of owner and basketball fan, but his loyalty to Dirk hurts his chances to win a championship. Don Nelson(Sr.) traded Dirk, his son is here to make sure Dirk stays put to make sure it did not look like wasted pick. Seven-footers are supposed to dominate, but not at a power forward position. If Dirk wasn't afraid to play center because of his fear of contact, then the Mavericks could get a reliable third scorer at power forward along with Butler. Almost no points consistently from center hurts Dallas mainly in the playoffs. During the season it doesn't matter, but a seven game series everything matters.Cuban does not understand this for some reason. Hence, back home to Dallas for more questions than answers.
