Cuban owe Kidd bigtime .. there was no-way the Mavs were ever going to make it to the Finals with-out Kidd's strong leadership, and coach Rick Carlisle getting on the same-page with Kidd. FA Shawn Marion join the Mavs for the sake of playing with Kidd again. Rick Carlisle pulled strings of getting the missing-piece to the Mavs roster by trading for the Bobcats center Tyson Chandler.
Cuban paying Dirk all that money in 2010 is left with Dirk loyalty to fill the seats in American Airlines arena in Dallas .. Cuban showed no loyalty toward Tyson Chandler and Barea who wanted to stay Mavs. When Cuban went after Odom's contract in a trade, that really made Mavs players see Cuban soldout the Mavs future in a repeat to the Finals .. Cuban's loyalty to a championship roster for a repeat in a short 66 game season comes first.
I still believe it was Tyson Chandler who recruited Kidd to New York under Mark Cuban nose .. Tyson Chandler knows HOF Kidd's strong leadership as a player/coach is what coach Woodson need to have great success from Stat & Melo individual performance.
Lets fa e it. Texas is a bellish desert filled with ignorant racists. Kidd couldnt wait to get out. He gave a verbal to cuban which is shady but the knicks is nyc where everyone wants to play thats not a moron (lebron).
^ I agree
Kidd made the right choice, hes coming to a great city and he fits in better on our team then he ever did in DallAss trash
Cuban let the CBA call his shots .. Cuban didnt show any effort in keeping 80% of his championship roster together for a short 66 game season .. plus that championship roster wanted another season together.
Dolan didnt let the CBA stop him from handing Tyson Chandler a 4 yr contract at $48M.
Kidd made a wiser decision than Nash....until Dwight joined Nash in LA
Cuban used to not be shy about spending money. Theres a cba but he could just pay luxury tax. I wonder if hes having money problems. Maybe deron and dwight asked for too much. Maybe dirk will want out soon. Trade amare for dirk? Lol jk.
They missed out on Deron but he's in a good situation and he's not committed to any players just for the sake of committing the big bucks.
Dirk is durable and I see him playing at a high level for maybe the next 5 years. He will not put up the 20 points maybe, but the guy is 7 feet and can drain the snake.
Dallas prognosis: good things
I used to like Cuba back in the day because he showed passion for the game. Now I think he's getting too much face time in the media and his image is starting to take a hit. It probably is a Texas thing. I don't know whoes craving more attention Cuba or Jerry Jones. As long as Cuba dosen't start rapping about pizza in commercials I still hold a lil respect for him. As far as Kid goes....he of all people should know that this is a biz, I'm sure the last thing he wants to do is look like the whining Dan Gilbert.
