- Reaction score
And that's the thing. Not only did the Mavs wipe the court with us, they first got deeper in the off-season and then again with Kyrie Irving. Luka was loaded, much more so than Devin Booker was - and Kevin Durant just obliterated all that.
Dallas made their team significantly worse in the off season. Losing Brunson killed them. McGee is glued to the bench and Christian Wood is so bad defensively that, despite his gaudy scoring, they're using him less and less.
The Kyrie trade was reactionary. They screwed up their team in the off season and were trying to fix it so they gambled on maybe the most toxic player in the NBA.
So far, it's not working. They're 1-4 with Luka and Irving together, Luka looked check out and miserable in the 2nd half of that Laker game.
