    I couldn't believe that game. I have no idea what happened to let Carter get such a wide open look, horrible lapse on defense there, and somehow KD gets that ridiculous shot off.

    The Knicks looked horrible, or the Lakers looked really good I can't tell.

    Bulls still not playing to well, they definitely need to work on a lot.

    Side note, did anyone see the Rugers #10 Florida game before the NBA action started? That was an amazing game, 2OT.

    The Knicks desperately need Iman Shumpert (kid can ball) and Baron Davis.

    Depends how bad Baron Davis plays. I don't see the Knicks getting out of the 1st round. Amare had 2 rebounds, they got killed on the boards and he was embarrassed there. Barring a Nash trade they are not going to make anything happen anytime soon.

    Yeah, nothing is happening this year. D'antoni needs to go. There were some reports that Phil Jackson would consider coaching the Knicks next year.

    They aren't going to trade for Nash. He's still a good player, but the Knicks won't trade young players for him.

    D'antoni isn't the problem, he did amazing things for that team before the star power was there, he did amazing things for the Suns back when he made them the best team in the league. The problem with the Knicks is they are not deep and they don't have a good PG. It would be very smart to trade for Nash, especially if they could keep the other 4 starters. Nash, Fields, Anthony, Amare, Chandler. Pretty good linup, especially if Fields becomes what he is expected to. Having Baron Davis as a sixth man would probably do him wonders as well.

    You really think Phil would come back already? He might come back, but not for a while. Shumpert and a pick for Nash. If all Phoenix will want is a pick and a young player, I'd see that deal going through pretty easily, I'd be satisfied with it being a fan of either team. Phoenix has to give Nash a shot at a title, they owe it to him. Still can't believe they never won it, they had the best team in the league for a few years there.

    D'antoni isn't the problem? LMAO what are you talking about? Everyone knows he doesn't know what defense is and without defense, you're not winning a championship. He's an offensive minded coach, who's going to kill Amare's knees.

    Suns were never the best team in the league. Most exciting you mean? Big difference.

    They can't afford to trade for Nash because of his salary. And nor should they, Nash has maybe only 1 or 2 good years left. Shumpert is going to be a stud.

    Nash, Richardson, Marion, Stoudemire, they won 61 and 62 games, always came up short, twice to the Spurs, and once to the Mavs. That Spurs team was one of the best of all time, but you can't argue the Suns weren't great too.

    What a game against the Grizzlies, damn just way to good there. We need Boozer to keep playing that good, thats what he was signed for.

    Coming up short general means they weren't the best team. Although I think they were robbed that year by that Horry-Nash ordeal that lead to his bloody face. IMO they were the better team in that series but that threw them off big time.

    You can be the best team for 90 games straight then something happens, and I wouldn't know how to react to that incident either. I'd put that team right behind the Jazz with Stockton and Malone for best teams to never win it. And over the course of those 4's stint together they were overall one of the best teams.

    DALLAS -- The Dallas Mavericks' dubious distinction of stumbling to the worst start by a defending NBA champion in more than four decades didn't discourage owner Mark Cuban.

    "I think we're a better team than last year," Cuban told ESPNDallas.com before the Mavericks finally got their first win of the season Friday night with a 99-86 victory over the Toronto Raptors at the American Airlines Center.

    Cuban anticipates that it will take the Mavericks at least 15 to 20 games -- and all the practices during that span -- to jell as the veteran-loaded team plays its way into shape and incorporates several key new players.

    The Mavericks, who joined the 1969-70 Boston Celtics as the only teams in NBA history to follow up a championship run with an 0-3 start, made the calculated decision to value financial flexibility next offseason more than keeping the core of their first title team together.

    "It's the right move for the franchise," coach Rick Carlisle said.

    As a result, the Mavericks lost center Tyson Chandler, small forward Caron Butler, point guard J.J. Barea and shooting guard DeShawn Stevenson in free agency, plus small forward Peja Stojakovic retired. Dallas filled the roster by using a trade exception to acquire forward Lamar Odom and signing shooting guard Vince Carter, guard Delonte West, power forward Brandan Wright and center Sean Williams to cap-friendly, short-term contracts during the shortened training camp.

    "I think we've got more talent than last year, by far," Cuban said. "It takes time. It takes time. We still have the same coach, the same core with one or two exceptions, but I think we did all right replacing those guys, so we'll see.

    "... We're more diverse. There are more things we can do. That's not to take away from the guys that we lost, but Delonte West brings something different, Lamar and Vince bring something different. We're posting up three, four, five possessions in a row. That's a look we would have loved to have last year. The matchups, if we can get in shape and exploit them, I see a ton of positives."

    Cuban anticipated a slow start for the Mavericks coming out of the lockout because they rely on teamwork more than individual talent. He believes the Mavericks will be contenders again because they still have great chemistry, a strong coaching staff and players who are willing to work.

    "You can't question A.I. about practice and then wonder why everything is not perfect when you don't have practice, right? Practice?! Practice?!" Cuban said, breaking into an Allen Iverson impersonation. "We need some practice! We're a precision team. I think teams that are super athletic have an early advantage. You design schemes to beat athleticism when you can, but you have to have guys who understand everything and are in shape in order to be able to execute."

    Cuban points out that he didn't panic when the Mavericks started 0-4 after their previous trip to the Finals. That team recovered to win a franchise-record 67 games, although they were eliminated by the eighth-seeded Golden State Warriors in the first round of playoffs.

    Cuban mentioned a more recent memory as reason to think that lopsided losses to the Miami Heat and Denver Nuggets in the season's first two games weren't a sign of impending doom in Dallas.

    "You know what? They were no worse than when we went on our West Coast road trip at the end of last season," Cuban said, referring to a four-game losing streak late last season that began with a 28-point blowout against the Los Angeles Lakers. "Then people had reason to be nervous, right? It turned out all right. So two games in with no practice, three games in, four games, five games, 10 games. ... I'm not worried."

    Tim MacMahon covers the Mavericks for ESPNDallas.com.


    ***************

    I'd like some of whatever he is smoking.

    On a more serious note, can anyone think of why we didn't use the amnesty clause on Haywood in order to be able to keep chandler or at least re-sign a couple of the lower paid guys that were critical to our chemistry? I had forgotten just how large of a contract they had given Haywood, he's got something like 5y/47mill left!
