    Chandler was our most tradeable asset and we were lucky to get rid of him. Cuban still remembering how Chandler helped him win a champioship and his philosophy that team chemistry is more important than a players talent probably made Dallas the only team that would take an overpaid, overrated Tyson Chandler. Glad we were able to get something back for him rather than let his contract expire for nothing.

    Felton for Calderon is a no brainer. Guys talk about Calderon getting older but he was never athletic in the first place so he may be one of those PG's like Steve Nash that play into their late 30's. As long as he can maintain that career 41% 3 pt.% he'll be way more an asset on this team than Felton.
    That was the most important thing about Tyson, he was tradeable throughout the offseason for $14M.
    We had plenty of time to trade Tyson Chandler for a better return (Asik & Holiday or Jennings & Monroe).
    Cuban have to be angry at Shawn Marion signing with the Cavs, Tyson need Marion leadership in the Mavs frontcourt.

    Calderon & Felton career performance are equal, they are starters, and inconsistent finishers with no defensive talent.
    The two PG will give u the same performance under a strong discipline coach Carlyle or Fisher.
    Calderon may have more NBA experience than Pablo Prigioni, but Prigioni is a better crunch-time Finisher than Calderon.
    If puppet Woodson had a brain he would've realize Prigioni was our finisher PG, if he paid attention in the Knicks 2 postseason series in 2012-13 season.

    I know it is easy now to take shots at woodson. I never thought he was that good anyway, but certainly not the reason why this team was bad last year.... or at least not the only reason...

    As far as fisher goes, how do you know what kind of coach he is or will be? you already listed him along with carlyle( a championship coach may I remind you) as a strong disciplined coach.... really? where has fisher coached to even give us a hint that is the kind of coach he will be, or will he buckle under the pressure of the Job? who knows? but to label fisher as anything but a question mark at this point is just not reasonable... this guy has never coached or sat on a bench as a coach in the NBA.. we have not clue...

    Yeah, Fisher's 2nd/3rd season will be the time to grade his style of coaching with other top name coaches.
    Resume .........
    Fisher has been the assistant-coach on the court for head coaches ...Nelson, Sloan, Brooks, and Phil.
    Fisher's veteran respect from players, coaches, officials has earned him a strong candidate as a head-coach.
