The main problem is that probably 1/3 of these folks arent even Mavs fans, they're just Luka fans. So they just trash the team because doing so makes Luka look even better for being Luka. It gets annoying after a while
I can understand the frustration with KP though, and not being happy with where we are. Yes the team was ravaged by health issues, but sitting at #7 with an utterly useless play in scenario can be nerve racking. All it take s is a bad game or 2 and you're out. if they didnt have that stupid new add in, then i'd be perfectly comfortable with where things were.
Trashing team? Like you were trashing Brunson?
I admit, I was wrong about Mavs being able to win so many games. I didn't expect Luka becoming Curry like 3-point shooter overnight and I for sure didn't expect incredible Brunson. Some others, even Richardson, played some good games too. But Luka/Brunson playing unbelievable are the main reason for Mavs going up, unfortunately 7th place doesn't bring much this year. Another problem is that Denver and Portland have improved roster now.
We can admit or not, but KP is a problem. He didn't play a lot and Mavs are 9:9 without him. He just brings to little for a max. player.
Do you really believe that only Luka fans don't care about Mavs winning?
Dont worry, you werent alone in thinking the Mavs cant get it together There were only a handful of us who kept saying to be patient and wait until the team is healthy. It was very clear that this team is much better than what they were showing in the first 20-25 games or so. This team is one player away from maybe being a top 4 favorite to win the Championship (if everyone is healthy). Luka is just that good.
Luka shooting 43% for 3 might be unstoppable even with healthy KP and Brunson playing like at the moment. Problem is that all 3 things are probably unrealistic in playoffs.
