  1. This may sound stupid, but I didn't consider the OU game in my comparing the two QBs. Now, after the Baylor game, I think one will seperate himself. Baylor sure in hell isn't OU, and I think the QB that wants it the most will come out of this game showing it. I'm saving my judgement until after the Baylor game. Of course, the receivers will have to do a better job of hanging on to the ball to make a good judgement anyway. Gmg, Jason
  2. I don't think anyone can argue: without Nick Van Exel, we don't make it past Sacramento last season (with or without Webber) but, this trade makes us better. We now have a post up scorer. It doesn't make us any better defensively, but the '03-'04 Mavs will be better than the '02-'03 Mavs. Does that get us past SA, LA, or Sac? I don't think so. Not on Paper. But we'll see. But we are a little more athletic now. That's my basketball opinion until October-November. See ya'll then. GMG, Jason
  3. wow, I like the combination of a 57% shooter with 6-3 size. He can either really post up and score with the big boys or shoot lights out. sounds like a good pickup. GMG, Jason
  4. Isn't it weird the way the power swings? It used to be all eastern conference in the 90s. Bulls, Knicks, Pacers, Pistons, Magic. (Mostly Bulls) The west had Phoenix and Utah (and Houston when Jordan retired) but that was about it. Now, The Spurs, Lakers, Kings, Mavs, Blazers, Wolves, and Suns could possibly finish in the top 7 spots in the east with the Pistons finishing 8th. The power really swings. Kind of like the NFC in the 90s with the Cowboys, 49ers, and Packers. The conference championship game is the real superbowl. The same will go for the NBA this year. GMG, Jason
  5. Can't say I disagree with you. Are there such thing as other boards? GMG, Jason
  6. Oh yeah, Iron Man you're right about DFW fans, we are an impatient bunch. The Kings a few years ago had something the Mavs don't have: Chris Webber. Maybe Dirk will learn to play a post up game or we can get a scrapper inside, but until that happens, we're in trouble. I don't think Cuban is going to wait around that long. I've got a bad feeling this team WILL look different next year if we don't turn it around. Right or wrong that's very well what might happen.
  7. I do remember how bad this team was and we've come a LOOOOOONNNGGGGG way, I was just commenting on what the general feeling is out there. A lot of people are saying this could be Don Nelson's last season, blah, blah, blah. Mark Cuban himself is starting to get impatient. Look at our losses in this season's playoffs. Game 6 against Portland was the biggest giveup I've seen in a long time. Tonight was pathetic. When the Mavs hit their jumpers they win when they don't they lose. It's that simple. When we won the first 3 games in the Portland series, Dirk was what, 75% from the 3-point l
  8. Wow, 98 points through 3 qtrs. What a disaster. You think there is one Sacramento King that is even the least bit scared of the Mavericks? They own us. Plain and Simple. It's probably already a foregone conclusion but, if we lose game 2, I hope everyone got a good look at this team, because it WILL NOT look like this next year.
  9. This may be a little off the subject, but I thought Maurice Cheeks made a classy move helping out the 13-year old girl with the national anthem. For those that didn't see it, this poor girl was singing the national anthem and totally froze. Cheeks came over, put his arm around her and helped her sing the rest of the song. The look of shear relief was something to see as she thanked him after the song. What a classy move by a guy that coaches a bunch of classless thugs. GMG, Jason
  10. The NBA does its seeding for the #1 and #2 seeds based on Division Champs. San Antonio had the best record and won the Midwest and Sacramento won the Pacific, so they are the #1 and #2 seeds respectively. Although Dallas has a better record than Sacramento, Sacramento won their division, so they get seeded higher. Home court advantage, however, is based on record. If Dallas wins its first round series and Sacramento wins its first round, Dallas will play Sacramento and have homecourt advantage despite being the lower seed. Then, the Mavs' better record is taken into consideration. I don'
  11. Wow, thanks Austin Talon! I've downloaded a few and can use them elsewhere. (I've gotta stick with my BK avatars for now). Thanks again. GMG, Jason
  12. I love these kind of threads. And I'll tell you something else, I'm surprised at all the students on the board!! This is great!! I have to say, I thought alot of you were alumni instead of students and it's great to see you guys and gals supporting YOUR school. I know alot of the students on campus think supporting their University is stupid (is the word "losers" too strong?) Those people have never been a part of something and their attitude flat out sucks. I have really seen a change in only 2-3 years since I left, and it makes me proud! Keep up the good work and we believe in the Mean
  13. My name's Jason, I graduated Aug. 2000, BBA in Mgmt. I live in, you guessed it, The Colony and work in Dallas. I'm currently in my second semester of Grad School at the greatness that is UNT (I forgot how much I missed going to class ) I bought season tickets last year made all the home games, TCU and the bowl and have renewed for next year, going to OU, N.O. (that's right, again) and am seriously considering going to NMSU. Brandon Kennedy's my hero, so I'll keep him as my avatar ( I just may change BK photos as I go along) Nice to meet ya!
  14. I think we should paint a huge mural on the side of the new stadium facing our disgruntled neighbors. We could paint some pretty trees, a lake, some grass and a big pretty sunset and some birds. That way, they can look out their windows and see the "beauty" they are so gonna miss.
  15. I agree, we're just gonna have to take it one day at a time.
  16. Tampa Bay-26 Oakland-13 MVP: Brad Johnson
  17. I don't think Unjel got a Tech when he was hanging on the rim. The UALR player got one for pushing him, then Green got one for retaliating. Unjel got one later on the other end of the court for talking trash. I didn't get there until the start of the second half, but I thought we looked timid on the offensive end and they just took it to us. Sat. is now a MUST WIN to get us back to .500
  18. Story on Davis getting the 2000th point and going for the record. It was a good, long story and snippets from what must have been a pretty good interview. George Riba was at the pit, good highlights from several different games, I was definitely pleased! Some of you old timers would have loved some of the highlights of Kenneth Lyons from back in the day.
  19. If he would have been 5'8" that's one thing, but he was actually 5'5"!!!!!!
  20. My view of the men's game can be summed up quite simply: free throws & rebounding free throws & rebounding free throws & rebounding free throws & rebounding free throws & rebounding free throws & rebounding free throws & rebounding If you want to win a basketball game, you have to be good at both (at least 1 out of 2) and we got killed on the boards and I don't know if I've ever seen that many missed free throws in a college bball game before. And what a momentum killing call the foul on Davis was when he passed ahead for a wide open lay up late in the game. Th
  21. He may be next year's 2002 B. Kennedy. Dominating everyone!
  22. I listened in & out. Sounded ugly, turnovers and we got killed on the boards again. Scored only 60 points! UGH! maybe we can pull the upset before Xmas! GMG
