Local Mavs fan since birth here,

Mark Cuban only did these moves to make Dallas a free agency destination as both of these men are beloved by most of the players in the league. That being said I’m not a fan of either of these hires at all and Dallas still won’t be free agency destination. The team got it’s one and only championship with it’s all time greatest player and I’ve been content with that.

This is huge mistake! What has he done in the past to warrant this? He will not last out his first season!
