Found December 13, 2012 on Celtics Life:
This Mavericks team might be better off without Dirk. Sure they are 11-11 after losing in double OT to the Celtics, but as time goes by they would be able to gel and just play with a chip on their shoulder. With Dirk, comes expectations. Right now all this team has to do is play and no one really expects anything from them. But get a top 10 player back and you have something to lose and playoff spots to fight for. Most of the comments from Mavs fans were either loving/hating OJ Mayo or complaining about the refs. Top Three Did brandan wright die? Dont let Terry kill us. That's all I care about. im happy and mad about this game at the same time .....our backcourt was great and terrible at the same time Play of the Game (Collison throwing the ball out of bounds in double OT down 115-112 with 4.7 seconds left) LOL what the ******* **** was that! Why didnt someone come closer. You have 5 full seconds. Jesus Christ. Man the game leaves a bad taste in my mouth after that ri...
