No Dirk = More Murphy = Kinda Like Odom?

This is going to feel like the meanest thing we've ever written in 14 years of Mavs coverage: 'Strangely enough, in their time in Dallas, Lamar Odom and Troy Murphy almost mirror each other statistically.' Ouch. That hurt! As the Mavs get ready for the Knicks and for another month without Dirk, you are excused for grimacing in pain as you read this Premium analysis:

Darko is Still the Serbian Gangster

Darko is already winning over fans in Boston. He has already said that if he has to kill someone on the court for the Celtics to win, he's ready to do that. As much as I loved Perk's attitude, he's never offered to murder anyone. He just scares them off. But Darko's serious here. They don't call him the Serbian Gangster for nothing.
