STAT and Barbosa for Dirk !!! I’m a Dallas Mavericks Fan first and Phoenix suns Fan Second. (and I hate the rest) Dallas Fan because I was born here, Phoenix fan because of Nash (ex Mavs) and their run and gun style. (under Dantoni of course) Very exciting to watch and I was always on the edge of my seat for spectacular plays. Under dantoni of course which I loved. I’m hating porter right now, but that’s another subject. Both team WILL get into the playoffs. And Both team WILL fail to make it to the finals. (let alone win it). I am more forgiving of dallas because all we really have is Dirk and Jason Terry. And Jason Terry is off the bench. We only have 3 potential 20+pts per night guys (josh howard but he’s too emotional) I’m not that forgiving for the SUNS. You guys have: SHAQ !! AMARE !! J RICH !! HiLL !! Barbosa!! Nash!! All capable of delivering 20+ points per night. Why Stat and barbosa for dirk?? I feel Dirk is better than Stat. So lets mix in barbosa (which porter doesn’t really utilize) Most of barbosa points comes from broken plays, fast breaks, and hey look what I found. Porter draw plays for shaq, amare, j rich, hill. 15-20 points should come naturally for those guys and anything less is disappointing. Barbosa is amazing to get that much points from nothing. (AND terry uses him as a Point guard !!) His points and percentage have dropped because of his role. He is NOT a PG, but a shooting guard. Amare is playing with No motivation. And a change will definitely bring the beast back out. I love dirk, he’s great but he has a better chance to win with another team. Dirk will be a great half court addition for you guys. Nash, Shaq,Dirk,Hill, Jrich would be awesome. Barbosa will get more playing time in Dallas because we seem to run more than suns. With Jason Kidd, Jason Terry, Amare, josh Howard, and Barbosa. We would be the new D’antoni run and gun under Rick carslie. That’s not an all star lineup but all of them can produce big points. So how bout, lets bring amare and the blurr to DALLAS !!!
