    I mean i have this mixed feelings
    I give Donnie a lot of credit for making the right moves in getting Luka but at the same time this is the guy who fails to add good pieces around him and i dont think it should be that hard.
    I mean how hard is to see that the Mavs need a strong, atlethic center, that doesnt need to shoot the 3 ball that well? Can u imagine the amount of pick and roll that guy would get playing with luka? Like how the hell i never hear the possibility of getting guys like Miles Turner (that would be a dream), richaun holmes, robert williams, etc etc
    Like you keep adding this centers that dont mix well with luka skills, like WCS is so skinny, sets weak screens and cant roll properly to the basket and Boban, sure we all love him and he has is moments but he also isnt a great pick and roll option cuz he barely can jump.
    Porzingis on paper when we got him sure he was a nice fit but since the last injury he also doesnt roll much to the basket and his screens are also weak cuz he gets pushed off
    the biggest thing this team lack is atheticism on the front court and donnie is to blame for that

    So you blame Luka for “ball-hogging” when his teammates stand around watching him all the time but you want his assist numbers up.....Donnie....what? Idk man I kinda get what he’s saying but more often than not luka is the only player on the court who can get his own shot with barely any help. I’d be nice to have more motion on the court and not just stagnant players. Ricks play calling might need some adjusting. Why so many plays call for KP to pick and pop out to the three is beyond me but most mavs plays have him doing that. It’s crazy seeing how often KP is outside the paint standing around for a 7 foot dude. Please get him healthy and make decent plays for him or trade for someone like Karl Anthony-Towns who can actually get us some paint game.

    Luka had 14 assists in a game seven with the rest of his squad combined for 5/25 from three and we have to listen to this guy criticizing his franchise player for not being inclusive... What an absolute joke this front office is

    I apologize for this long comment...
    MAVS FUTURE IS BRIGHT!
    I’m so disappointed cause we had blown so many leads during this series against a more Playoff experienced team!
    By the way, I hate complaining but refs were terrible giving free points and possessions to the Clippers through these 7 games.
    I’m pretty sad cause we didn’t get any win at the AAC.
    I was upset cause we blew a 19 points lead during game 3 when we were having a very good game.
    I was angry in game 4 because we are a team that sometimes is very predictable and dies shooting 3’s instead going for easy 2’s when perimeter shots don’t fall.
    I’m truly disappointed with game 7 because our defense wasn’t there when we need it the most, we kept letting them shoot open 3’s!
    We could have won this series but we’re done for this season.
    On the positive side this was a great experience for this young core and failure is part of the winning process.
    I always have faith in this versatile squad but we need few changes.
    My most important question is, do we need a new coach who could actually use KP and the other players? Or do we need a new system?
    I understand there’s a lot of expectation cause we have a unique talent like Luka but you have to understand this too… we always live or die with him!
    The ball is always with him! So is that good or bad?
    It’s truly good when he goes MVP mode, secures the ball and his crazy shots fall but it’s hard to see when he is gassed and the basket doesn’t go in or when he has his moments of “bad decisions”, turnovers mostly or forcing difficult shots (he is human after all lol)
    If you ever play basketball you know how hard is to stay connected or make buckets when you barely touch the ball…
    So don’t expect KP or other player to score 20-30 in a regular basis when they only touch the ball once in a while!
    It’s truly sad cause I always remember how good we were when KP was healthy and completely involved with the team… when he was feeling important he was a beast.
    Or when JB had the ball more and he could make an impact on the floor.
    Imagine if we combine moments of those Luka driving around plays with more TEAM BALL, letting Luka play off the ball, swinging the ball fast to get better open looks and easier points, cutting more, attacking the paint, throwing some of those regular season deathly lobs, everyone staying ready to shoot...
    At the end basketball is a TEAM sport!
    And a true leader allows and makes others shine.
    In my humble opinion, we’re actually unguardable when we play that kind of basketball.
    If you have that and you add some defense you have great tools to be a contender for many years, maybe even a dynasty.
    Luka is gonna be the MVP and future face of the League for many years to come but for that to happen we have to start to play more as a TEAM and WIN more!
    To end this crazy Bible I’ve written here..
    Every season Luka comes with some crazy skill.
    First season was his stepback 3’s, during his second season he attacked the paint fiercely and he finished with his left more, this season he came with unbelievable midrange fadeaways… his arsenal is infinite and I’m looking forward to see what’s next.
    But I have one personal request:
    Luka enjoy your holidays then please go Giannis mode and work out like a beast.
    Push yourself to another level physically and the NBA future will be yours/ours!
    KP, come back stronger physically and mentally and add some post moves to your skillset.
    For Mark and the front office…please keep KP and make him feel important again
    Remember, after all the things we’ve been through he is healthy again!
    But get ready to get some juicy rumors and trades cause I wouldn’t be surprised if he wants out, if this happens I would never understand why they never fix their issues talking like men and helping each other.
    Allow JB and DFS to blossom.
    Get a friendly deal with Timmy and bring him back.
    And explore options to find a shot creator/defender Jrue Holiday type of player or a scorer defender wing like Kawhi type.
    And a strong center then make KP play as PF.
    My list: ( some sound dreamy but they are not impossible)
    Via free agency: (priority so you don't need to sacrifice valuable pieces)
    -Schröder, Dinwiddie, Norman Powell
    -Jarrett Allen, Holmes, John Collins, Mitchell Robinson
    -Star vets: DeRozan, Lowry (only if they come at good price)
    -Maybe Oladipo ( uncertainty due to injuries)
    Via trade:
    -Dragic, LaVine, Beal, Fox, CJ McCollum, Kevin Porter Jr, Rozier, Brogdon
    -Jaylen Brown, Isaac, Jerami Grant, Miles Bridges, Mikal Bridges, Anunoby, Hachimura, Thybulle
    -Sabonis, Vucevic, Turner, Nurkic, Valanciunas, Christian Wood, Chris Boucher
    Get two of these pieces, keep the core, adjust the system, improve our defense, practice your free throws, play with hunger and we’ll be good!
    Looking forward to see a tougher Mavs next season!
    I say it again, the future is bright… LET’S GO MAVS!
    Thanks for reading.

    Need to have the 80s Celtics starting five. Bird McHale Parrish Johnson and Ainge. What I mean is you need five starters who consistently play well together. That is how the eltics regularly racked up 65 wins in the regular season and 3 NBA championships

    Dallas Roster: Doncic, Lillard, Dorian, Powell and Nurkic
    Brunson, Redick, Melli, Kleber and Boban
    Then I think we'll get to the finals.

    Cuban is the problem since he has the authority to fire Nelson but hasn't. A GM with zero playoff series wins in 10 years doesn't deserve to have a job.

      i mean sure he has is issues and some bad decisions but lets not forget he made everything to get Luka... otherwise he would be in Atlanta and you would have Trae Young putting huge numbers in a mavs lotery squad... Bringing Luka speed up the re-build process in years! So that said, i've think Donnie deserves at least 1 more year?

    Last trade deadline you miss Evan Fournier and Vucevic instead you trade a player that aren't playing at the Playoffs
    Keep KP/Hardaway/Finne-Smith/Kleber/Boban

      What? Keep DFS, Kleber and Boban!? Lmao I like THJ but it's time to try signing big names that can put you into a real contention position. If they have a possibility to take a big free agent name, let THJ go without thinking. That's how Bulls made that super team in the 90's: you don't keep players because of warm fuzzy feelings.

    I'm tired of these things every year. Donnie has to go. Please Mark, relieve Donnie of his duties, he's blaming Luka at 7:52 for not involving his teammates more, while he carried a lottery team to the playoffs, and when he sat on the bench, the team literally crumbled. They literally lost the series because the roster is trash. At some point the offensive rating with Luka was 124.7 and without him 88.3 pts per 100 possessions. He literally had to play with the worst roster in this year's playoffs and still somehow pushed game 7 with a top championship contender.
    Please Mark, I beg you, fire Donnie. Please! I don't want to be sold on guys like Delon, Willy, Iwundu, Johnson, old sick Redick who doesn't play, I don't wanna see Boban and Burke, two of our biggest FA signings play heavy minutes in the playoffs with Luka. Donnie has to go. Please, Mark.

    Is he insinuating Luka is too selfish with the ball? What do you want him to do?! 90% of the time he has a better chance at scoring than he does passing to the open man for an assist. We don't need him to specifically focus on upping his assists. We need teammates who aren't jealous of him scoring 40pts a night.

    • Richo

      He probably stops watching whenever Luka sits to rest. Because all I saw was passing the ball around the perimeter that either resulted to a bricked shot or a turnover. It's also funny how he criticized his best player and none of the blame for the role players who bricked shot after shot, like that bench who only scored 6 points in G7.

      At the moment Luca has not many choices to go to . Once we get some new players that can play he has to share the ball more . We don’t wan him to be like James harden scored 40 every night in Huston but never got any where in play off . Basket ball is a team play and should be played as team not individual . Luca has to let go some of that ball position to a ball handler that Mavericks should sign . Too much ball handling is making him tired and he needs to be better condition, you can see his field goals dropping in 2nd half and 4th quarter
