Maxi does need to go.
Waste of money on the books. He doesn't seem to have much drive or hustle unless he just doesn't have any emotion within him at all.

We can officially focus on the off-season. The season has many positive moments but I'm excited for the off-season.

Maxi was the best defender on Kawhi the whole series. He didn't really bother him that much, but at least he made him work. DFS was completely invisible, everyone else was even worse... Maxi's shot was just off, he'll bounce back I hope.

This series was The Luka Show. He needs some help. KP, Powell, and Brunson being injured didn’t help, but the other guys need to hit the wide open shot. Luka can’t win it all by himself.

We need to bring in an enforcer. When Morris goes after Luka, then our enforcer needs to take out Kawhi.

Brad Townsend: Luka on Morris play: “I didn’t want to think (Game 5 play) was on purpose, but after today’s play . . . I don’t want to deal with players like that.”

 
Brad Townsend: Doncic on goals going forward: “My only goal is to win the championship.”

 Ben Golliver: Mavericks’ Luka Doncic on his off-season focus before his third NBA season: “There’s a lot of things to improve on. You can’t work on just one thing, you’ve got to work on everything. But I’ll especially work on my shooting. That’s my key.”

This guy is on the next level of stupidity. Luka was basically NEVER targeted on defense, carried Mavs offense specially when KP went out and was shooting 50% from field. Agree with FT's but cmon, he's 21yo and Skip is targeting him like he was prime LBJ. I know he is doing this for the ratings, but doesn't help the league when "so called" analysts or TV personalities spew garbage like that.

All in all i am very proud how Mavs fought and gave themselves a chance to win, was hard today because no one could hit an ocean but hey... Good season and looking forward to the next one. Hopefully Mavs FO can pull out some magic tricks as well and sign a great player.

Bayless is trolling the fans. He thrives on controversy. He wants you to hate him....it's the next best thing to loving him, and that's never going to happen.

When he was a beat writer in Dallas 20 years ago, people hated him then. He was known by newspaper readers by his nickname... Just "Skip" Bayless.

Is there anyone on this board that thinks Delon Wright will be a Maverick when season starts?

He didn't play a single minute in this last game.

Is this a joke? The only guys that NEED to go for next season are Wright and Jackson.

Skippy is a genius.
He knows how to get clicks and attention.

Could be difficult to move this:

2020-21: $9,000,000
2021-22: $8,526,316

I don't know. Statistically, it was one of Delon Wright's better years.

He didn't score like he should, but everything else looks good on paper. Memphis was about to give him a good payday a year ago. I think a team could be persuaded to take him. He just didn't work in this system. Working next to Luca is not for just anybody, and the Dallas system is a little different than most.

I think unloading him might be do-able.

Skip has no talent; therefore, he plays the contrarian.

Perfect enforcer for luka would have to be big and dirty like zaza but hes retired, current player who somewhat fits the enforcer role is james johnson

Julius randle is really strong, we'll pay for kickboxing lessons if you take him.

The Clipps giving Luka the Jordan treatment. Early in his career, even MJ had a young bruiser named Charles Oakley watching his back.
