Mark Cuban’s Two-Year Plan Not A Good Idea For Dallas Mavericks

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

I’m sure there is a lot of talk around the Dallas Mavericks and what they are going to do next season to avoid missing the playoffs again. However, it sounds like owner Mark Cuban might have a different idea in mind. He said last week that he has a two-year plan to get Dallas back into championship contention.

I’m sorry to say this, but a two-year plan isn’t going to sit well with fans.

Cuban has the money to make the big moves necessary for this Dallas team, and that would include trying to get either Chris Paul or Dwight Howard. I don’t understand this two-year plan business. Is it possible that Cuban’s involvement in the highly popular TV show “Shark Tank” might have something to do with this plan?

His attention sounds divided because of the show, and he should get back to focusing on his Mavericks.

There is money available and salary cap space to pick up some nice pieces this summer, but it sounds like he is more focused on free agency after next season. The fans in Dallas will get restless real quick if this team doesn’t produce next year.

It would be best for Cuban to just go out and focus all his energy this offseason on getting Dallas some free agent help. He seems resigned to the fact that the team isn’t going anywhere next year.

Dirk Nails Game-Winner, Gets Love From Kobe

Kobe Bryant wasn't able to lace up for the Los Angeles Lakers against the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday night, but he still managed to make the highlight reels on multiple occasions. After Dirk Nowitzki nailed what turned out to be the game-winning jumper, he stumbled backward into Bryant and received a pat of approval. This encounter is the definition of the saying 'game recognizes game' as the two players are both legends and future Hall of Famers.

Josh Smith Fakes Dirk Nowitzki Out of His Shoes

Josh Smith has returned to the Houston Rockets via trade, and he made the most of his first game back. He scored 16 points off the bench, including this drive on Dirk Nowitzki that made Smith look like Hakeem Olajuwon. Could Ty Lawson and Josh Smith be the spark duo off the bench that rejuvenates this Rockets team?

Watch Kings' Rondo Attempt To Trip Mavs' Williams

Last night's game between the Sacramento Kings and Dallas Mavericks was one of the most entertaining of the season. It was a back-and-forth contest that ended on a Deron Williams three-pointer as time expired in double-overtime. Unfortunately, Williams almost didn't get to take that shot as Rajon Rondo attempted to trip him from the bench earlier in the game which could have caused serious injury. Rondo should be suspended for his actions.
