The farce is over. The Mavericks 2011-12 season has come to an abrupt and fitting end, so it's time for the Deron Williams watch to begin. Mavs owner Mark Cuban is now attempting to hedge his bet by saying he doesn't have a specific plan in mind this summer. But anyone who professes to believe that is likely drawing a paycheck from the man. It's hard to recall an owner in professional sports who has whizzed away his public goodwill from a world title faster than Cuban. And he's making it worse by insisting the NBA's new collective bargaining agreement is to blame for placing a poor product on the court this past season. Unfortunately, they rarely raise banners to celebrate financial flexibility. The Mavs broke the mold for winning a title in 2011, and then decided they didn't have the stomach to continue that path.

  • How Can people still write trash about this seson being a good/bad decision. As a Mav's fan I was so happy we won last year, however we beat verry steep odd's doin so. Had we kept the team intact we would have been one of the oldest teams in the league getting older and locked into at least 3-4 years of no cap room and first round exits. With the cap room Dallas now has it can add YOUNG players this year (and assuming a title team cant be put together this summer, next years free agent market is great also). So at worse we had a play off team this year, will have one next year (possibly a title contender?) and will be on the short list of favorites to win it all for the next 5+ years if the right players are added in the next 2 years.
