    I think worrying about the 2029 pick is being overblown. Right now the focus is on getting Luka some help. He might not be there in 2029 but if they didn't get him help there's a VERY high chance he's not there in 2029. They got a very talented player who will relieve some of the pressure off Luka and while the defense may be lacking, the offense is about to be very interesting and high powered.

      @Logan Klein I would say the main reason is because every pick matters even though teams seem to treat draft picks aa cannon fodder. Now you would think after Nikola Jokić that people would maybe take a little bit more care of draft picks. I’m not saying every late pick is going to be him obviously not but still

      @Logan Klein He's basically saying there's no guarantee that Dallas will have Kyrie or Luka in 2029, and if both stars leave then it could be a terrible terrible situation for Dallas come 2029. I just think they're worrying too much about it. Luka seemed happy in Dallas even before Kyrie, I hope Kyrie doesn't drive him away lmao. Although I think Cuban would prioritize making Luka happy over Kyrie.

      I agree, 2029 is far into the future, but since every year is unpredictable in the NBA nowadays I don't feel like there's much difference in the picks. 2029 is far enough into the future that I do understand the concern of trading that pick unprotected, but getting Luka Kyrie now is big. It's what both Dallas and Luka needed. Here's to hoping we'll have enough in Dallas to keep that absolute wildcard lmao.

      @Skyylife ENT clearly, just giving Luka the ball every time up the floor isn't much of a winning playstyle when he lost in 5 last year. It isn't the first time we've seen this type of player, all of the other players who demand the ball every time up the floor are all ringless for a reason. Harden, Russ, AI, Trae Young is in a similar situation rn, even Michael Jordan had a similar playstyle and didn't win anything until he was willing to let other players do work that end of the court. MJ even admitted in The Last Dance, that he only started winning when he was willing to give up the ball.

    I'm putting Green at the 3 because of his 6'11" wingspan (nearly the same as Dorian). I'm then seeing if I can get Jakob Poeltl as my defensive anchor. He can guard the paint, score in the post, and playmake. Putting him beside Wood would dramatically improve their defense in the frontcourt.
    Luka, Kyrie, Green, Wood, and Poeltl would be a very strong startung 5 imho.

  • Evan Parker
    Evan Parker Місяць тому +27

    I agree with pretty much all of this. Only thing is I think you might be overvaluing the pick a little. We don’t draft well anyway, and you’d have to hit perfectly to really regret losing the pick. Because no matter what it was the piece that ultimately got us a Hall of Famer in his prime while being a top 5 seed. Obviously with all that I still have to worry about a contract extension and off court kyrie. Assuming we get any more than this season from him and he’s not causing huge issues, then I can’t be unhappy with it after years of no real front office action to push for success (besides KP, which he’s clearly not on the same talent level as Kyrie but that one still made sense)


    I’m so proud of you the dedication determination & motivation you have to constantly post is everything and entertain your audience at the same time especially when you are juggling multiple different platforms !!! You make it look so easy and effortless

  • Endless Nights

    In my opinion (coming from someone who loosely followed this discussion) Dallas gave kinda of alot for someone who's earning 36m on an expiring contract. I'm kind of afraind they might lose the only good help Luka is gonna get. Oh and to note the defense might look subpar now.

    • Endless Nights
      Endless Nights Місяць тому

      @Azmayeen Z Chowdhury The problem is that they have the chance to only keep kyrie for 3 months, knowing how untrustable and unpredictable Kyrie is he might not even sign the extension. Now if Kyrie does walk in to FA then they basically gave alot of pieces for a "quarter of a season rent a player" type thing. Granted they will get alot of capspace to sign another star for a max deal, but knowing how Dallas is with Superstar free agency, we can only hope kyrie signs the extension and stay for atleast 2 or 4 sesons.

    • Azmayeen Z Chowdhury
      Azmayeen Z Chowdhury Місяць тому

      @Baltej Bains I understand where you're coming from. Kyrie honestly cannot have a proper value, if he plays, he's absolutely insane. That's the thing though, he barely does. He might also leave after this year which sucks for Luka. You CANNOT trust that dude.

    • Baltej Bains
      Baltej Bains Місяць тому +1

      @Azmayeen Z Chowdhury DFS is a solid starter, dinwiddie is an above average starter. That first round pick is 2029 unprotected. Assuming luka aint around in 2029 (likely the case) the mavs will suck and that pick will likely be lotto. Kyrie is a superstar, but we all know why hardly any teams want him.

    • Azmayeen Z Chowdhury
      Azmayeen Z Chowdhury Місяць тому

      I mean I think it was just Dinwiddie and DFS right (along with a First and Couple second rounders), it seems super fair to me. Mavs are too good to have a lottery First pick and they practically traded Dinwiddie for a superstar along with a starter.

    YESSSSS! LET'S GOOOOO! I'm a Mavs fan and I'm excited for this trade, however, I think some of the fans are gonna go a little too crazy over this. This'll be the best guard duo in the west easily, but Dallas still lacks the center play that's it's always needed and some more defensive pieces. I think the team will be better than it is and will become a 3 or 4 seed but not a contender. Hope Dallas makes a couple more moves next year and make a true contender to beat the powerhouses that Memphis and Boston have become.

      if that's the case, mavs messed up. Cuz there's a high chance things do not go well this season. Not nearly enough games left this season for these guys to build chemistry. Kyrie and luka will probably need a full season to properly learn how to play together. If this experiment ends in another first or second round exit, it will be an utter disaster if kyrie simply walks for nothing, and mavs are left with a team even worse than they had before getting kyrie, not to mention the picks they gave up. And I bet luka won't be a happy camper at that point. I gotta believe mavs are now all in on kyrie and luka for the next few years...

      @HEIR BOOTS No, he’s freaking out because even if Kyrie resigns for 5 yrs, that contract gonna end 2027-2028 szn. He’s not gonna sign for that long, so whenever he leaves and/or they don’t win a chip, there’s a chance Luka will be mad and will demand a trade, leave in free agency, or might end up being a bad player in the 28-29 season. This all would lead to the Mavericks probably being a bad team in the 2028-2029 season, and since the pick has no protections, it can end up being a top 3 pick or even number 1, and it would end up with the Nets. There wouldn’t be such a big reaction to it if there was like top 8 protection, so that if the pick is top 8, it comes back to Dallas.
      Hope you get it know.

    I honestly don’t know how to feel about this. It feels desperate from Dallas’s side. Kyrie is great and this is a good opportunity for him. But Idk how he’s gonna feel being in a situation that resembles the 2016 cavs so much.

      How is it too good to be true? Their defense is significantly worse now, and they were already bad. This is likely not a championship team, although it wasn't before either.
