So I guess our top target in free agency is Al Jefferson now. Not bad. I've always been a fan of his.

Not necessarily. If Howard decides he doesn't like LA because he wants to be "the guy" he could easily bail. And Bynum may ditch Philly after this year too

Well yes, but realistically speaking, I don't think either guy does that.

Interesting. That's a complete turn around from what Donnie Nelson said about Kidd once he decided to leave for the Knicks.

Makes perfect sense if you ask me, but Cuban's always adored him and did say "for now," so we'll see if he changes his mind.

I liked the shout out to Derek Harper too. I think he deserves it due to longevity. He's also been a great guy to have involved with the team since retiring.

Darren Collison turned 25 today, meanwhile Kidd is 39. I like that 14+ year difference. Cool

Eduardo Najera is now the coach of the Texas Legends, has an ownership stake in the team, and will be a close counsel of Donnie and Cuban.

I like. I would love to find more guys like him. He's that blue collar, hard worker type of guy that shares a lot of the same qualities as Haslem.

On another note, Roddy B has been taking boxing classes and has been working hard to get stronger and tougher. I hope that's a plus, but I just want him to be healthy for the start of the season more than anything. I'm afraid that all the boxing will lead to an injury.

so, which newcomer are you most excited about this year?

For me it's Kaman, followed by Elton Brand. I love me some big men.

Apparently Dirk is working as hard as ever to get back to where he was before this past season. I like that a lot.

Also, we have the 7th worst jersey according to this article.

That list is a joke. Kings and Wolves two of the bottom three? I love those jerseys

Mavs shouldn't be in bottom 10, but I do think it is time to change a bit of the design and some other concepts. I want to bring back the green. That was awesome.

so realistically, where do you think we will finish during the regular season? What about the playoffs?

I hope that's enough to convince some other players to come here during free agency. I also hope that it causes Mayo to exercise his player option. Getting a player of his caliber for $4.5 million is a nice bargain.

4th or 5th seed, take OKC or LAL in the 2nd round to 6 or 7 games. I'd be really happy with that.

I would too. I wouldn't rule out the Spurs getting the #1 seed again. They are remarkably resilient.
