Why is everybody calling me a hater?

I said right now he isn't a top 20 player....I think there is an argument both ways. No?

Jesus...on this board you can't have an opinion that isn't "love" or "hate"

why would i be mad? I'm a Nets fan...wait, nevermind

but seriously, name the 20....he might END up there because his game keeps him fresh and healthy...but isn't there an argument?

Dirk is there now.

If he ends up with 30K points, he's top 10 without a second thought about it.

Wade is a joke tonight. The officials are calling a foul if Dallas breathes on him. 22 free throws? Pathetic.

30K + points would put Dirk in the top 5 scorers of all time. It would be pretty hard to argue that a guy who led a franchise to a championship without a second (or third) star, who has the kind of accolades that Dirk will have when he retires, is not a top 10 player.

Im going with Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain, MJ, Kobe, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Moses Malone, Magic Johnson, Oscar Robertson, Elgin Baylor and Larry Bird from the top of my head.

Dirk will for sure get high in the all time scoring, just not anywhere near the top. He's already how old? early 30's we have all seen how players slow down when the start inching towards 40.

Do you just pull statements out of your ass?

http://www.basketball-reference.com/leaders/pts_career.html

Look at that list and tell me who is going to pass him soon after he retires.

Duncan and Paul Pierce are older than Dirk so they're out. Vince Carter is a joke. McGrady's career is just about over due to injury. Lebron James, probably, but he is 5,000 points behind Dirk so it's going to take him a while. Carmelo Anthony is even further behind. He needs to maintain his production for five years....FIVE YEARS...to have a shot at passing Dirk. Dwayne Wade is going to be lucky to tie Dirk with the way his injuries are piling up.

Everyone else is so far out of the conversation it's hilarious.

Dirk is going to be on the top 10 scorers list for a long time.

That was a "best case scenario," it's not realistic.

In any case, the guy is going to hit 28K pretty easy. Show me who is going to score more than 28k.

So the question I was pondering today, is does Lebron come out hungry next year, or if he is who he is. I was talking to one of my friends at work Dev.. he reminded me that Wade didn't do crap the first couple of series and Lebron really carried them to the finals. That is a good point and unfortunately Lebron quit on the biggest stage. I trust Dev's opinion though because I didn't get to see the first rounds. I eventually Lebron gets a title because they were pretty darn close this year and didn't have an offseason to really tweak what they need. The Mavs were just a team that had a perfect storm this year. They were at their peak and were a bad matchup for the Heat. The Heat will eventually have a playoff finals where they match up well with the other team. The heat are going to be odds on favorites to get back there next year unless the Knicks get Chris Paul or there is a lockout.

That he is. He was also a "beast" against Philly, Boston and Chicago in the playoffs. For whatever reason he wasn't against Dallas. The two theories ("Theory A" and "Theory B") detailed in the article linked below are as good as any I've seen/heard.

I dont see why thats true...hes come up clutch in plenty of playoff games, plenty of playoff games THIS SEASON in fact...though he did epically crap the bed in the finals. He's not just a regular season beast, he is a beast, but he doesnt have that ability to forget. He gets inside his own head..my guess is he never gets beyond that, but he's such a superior talent that im sure he can have success despite it...perhaps not jordan success, but success.

Yeah, that's something that people need to realize.

At some point, Wade becomes the primary scorer for that team. Also, if they want to succeed, they're going to have to start integrating Bosh into the system as more than a spot up shooter. They need him operating out of the post.

What becomes of LeBron James' ppg? It drops.

People forget that James has already been in the league for a long time. He's starting to lose some of his athleticism already.

Chad Ford's Mock Draft, Version 5.0
With the June 13 date to withdraw from the NBA draft and the adidas Eurocamp behind us, we are now just a week from when the selections will be made.

The draft remains fluid at this point. Teams are still engaged in the workout process and are beginning to narrow down their lists, but the final draft order is still far from certain.

"Good luck with your mock draft," one GM said to me as he was departing Treviso, Italy. "I'll be interested in seeing who we are taking since I still don't know."

Here's our most informed take, after talking to numerous NBA team sources, about how the draft might play out June 23.
Cleveland
(via L.A. Clippers)


Kyrie Irving

Position: PG
Height: 6-foot-4
Weight: 191 pounds
Age: 19
School: Duke


Analysis: There have been a lot of interesting theories floating around the past week about why Cleveland won't be taking Irving No. 1. I still don't buy it. The Cavs have been shopping Baron Davis and Ramon Sessions hard in the past week.

Williams is still in the picture here at No. 1 in part because the Cavs feel they could get a very good point guard (either Brandon Knight or Kemba Walker) at No. 4 ... but sources continue to stress that it's Irving's to lose.

Minnesota


Derrick Williams

Position: PF
Height: 6-9
Weight: 249
Age: 20
School: Arizona


Analysis: Still hearing that the Wolves are hoping they can get a great offer for the No. 2 pick. But if they don't they'll just take Williams and work out the rest this summer via trades. If they get Williams, Michael Beasley could be gone by the time next season starts.

Utah
(via New Jersey)
Brandon Knight

Position: PG
Height: 6-3
Weight: 177
Age: 19
School: Kentucky


Analysis: Brandon Knight and Kemba Walker are both possibilities at guard. Enes Kanter, Jonas Valanciunas and Jan Vesely will also get a look here. The Jazz have a huge workout on June 15 when Walker and Jimmer Fredette are expected to work out for them.

Knight will come in at some point too, though he still seems to be refusing to work out with Walker or Fredette. While it's still possible the Jazz go big with this pick and select either a player like Kanter, Valanciunas or Vesely -- they're likely to try to select a franchise point guard if either Knight or Walker blows them away. If Fredette wins the battle on the 15th ... that could push the Jazz to go big here and try to nab Fredette with the 12th pick.

Cleveland
Jonas Valanciunas

Position: C
Height: 6-10
Weight: 230
Age: 19
Country: Lithuania


Analysis: I've had Kanter in this position since Mock Draft 1.0, but it's time to make the biggest change I've made to our board. From what I gather, the Cavs appear to be cooling a bit on Kanter and warming to Valanciunas.

Vesely and Leonard are in the picture too and would both be good fits. But this may be the Cavs' only chance to draft a legit 7-foot center. Valanciunas is raw, but he has big upside.

Toronto
Jan Vesely

Position: PF
Height: 6-11
Weight: 240
Age: 21
Country: Czech Republic


Analysis: Bryan Colangelo could go a number of directions here. He has strong interest in both Brandon Knight and Kemba Walker. If Knight is on the board, I think he doesn't get past here. If just Walker is here, the question for Colangelo is what to do with Leandro Barbosa and Jerryd Bayless. Both players are similar to Walker.

The Raptors could go with an international player such as Kanter, Valanciunas, Vesely or Bismack Biyombo. Of the four, sources say, Vesely is the highest on their board.

Washington

Enes Kanter

Position: C
Height: 6-11
Weight: 260
Age: 19
Country: Turkey




Analysis: The Wizards know they aren't taking a point guard -- not with John Wall in the fold. So the questions are: Who's the best player on the board and what do they need? The Wizards are very high on Vesely, but in this mock he's off the board.

Kawhi Leonard is an option. He brings toughness, defense and versatility to a team that can use all three attributes. But the Wizards are really looking for rebounding help up front and Kanter is a very good fit here. He's tough, he isn't afraid to be physical and he has good size. Tristan Thompson is a dark horse here as well.

Sacramento

Kawhi Leonard

Position: SF
Height: 6-7
Weight: 228
Age: 19
School: San Diego State




Analysis: If the draft plays out this way, the Kings could go in three different directions. They could go with Leonard, who would help solve a major need at small forward or they could choose between Walker and Fredette at the point. We've had Walker in this position for weeks, but mostly because we've had Leonard off the board.

Fredette, as we've been writing for the past two weeks, is the dark horse here. The Maloof brothers love him and he's probably a better fit in the Kings' backcourt than Walker. If Leonard is off the board, Fredette could be the pick.

Detroit
Kemba Walker

Position: PG
Height: 6-1
Weight: 184
Age: 21
School: UConn




Analysis: For the past few weeks, we've had the Pistons taking Valanciunas, but with Valanciunas now going No. 4, it looks like the Pistons will be down to three prospects: Kemba Walker, Tristan Thompson and Bismack Biyombo.

Walker is the safe pick, though he doesn't actually fill a major need. Thompson has upside. And, from what I gather, the team is still very high on Biyombo. The Pistons know how to develop a defensive stopper like him and I'm told their trip to Spain to see him went well.

Still, at the end of the day, I think the Pistons draft the best player available, Walker, and look at moving Rodney Stuckey to the 2.

Charlotte
Marcus Morris

Position: PF
Height: 6-9
Weight: 230
Age: 21
School: Kansas


Analysis: The Bobcats haven't been the greatest drafters the past few years. Michael Jordan is determined to change that. The thinking in Charlotte is to not take big risks. To go with a proven product. To aim at the double instead of the home run.

Morris, with his versatility, toughness and Kansas pedigree is a very good option. Klay Thompson, Chris Singleton and Jordan Hamilton are all in the mix as well.

Milwaukee
Klay Thompson

Position: PG
Height: 6-7
Weight: 206
Age: 21
School: Washington St.


Analysis: I think this pick likely comes down to Thompson and Alec Burks. They play the same position, but have different strengths. Thompson is a shooter, Burks is a slasher.

With the Bucks telling me pretty strongly that they're holding on to Brandon Jennings as their point guard, and with the team making a strong drive to get back in the playoffs, I think Thompson is a better fit.

Golden State

Bismack Biyombo

Position: PF
Height: 6-9
Weight: 243
Age: 18
Country: Congo




Analysis: Jerry West is a fan of Klay Thompson and would likely select him if he's still on the board. But if he and Marcus Morris are off the board, the Warriors could be the team that takes a chance on Biyombo. The team desperately needs to improve its defense, shot-blocking and rebounding. Biyombo has the tools to do that right away.

Utah
Chris Singleton

Position: SF
Height: 6-9
Weight: 230
Age: 21
School: Florida State


Analysis: We've had Singleton here for weeks and we're not moving him unless the Jazz draft a forward with the No. 3 pick. With Andrei Kirilenko heading into free agency, the Jazz are going to want a defensive stopper who can guard multiple positions.

Tristan Thompson, Jimmer Fredette and Alec Burks are all possibilities here too.

Phoenix
Alec Burks

Position: SG
Height: 6-6
Weight: 193
Age: 19
School: Colorado


Analysis: The Suns are in that awkward spot between pushing for the playoffs and rebuilding. Lon Babby says the team will be emphasizing defense and Tristan Thompson could be a solid direction to go.

But if Burks is on the board, he may be very hard to pass up on. He has star potential if he ever learns how to shoot. With Vince Carter likely out of the picture in Phoenix, Burks also fits a need.

Houston
Nikola Vucevic

Position: C
Height: 7-0
Weight: 260
Age: 20
School: USC




Analysis: Could Vucevic really go this high? That's the word among a number of NBA GMs who are raving about his workouts. Some have argued that the differences between him and Enes Kanter are very slim.

With the Rockets in desperate need of some size in the paint, Vucevic could be the answer. He's not the world's greatest athlete, but he is skilled, has an NBA body and is ready to play now.

Indiana
Jimmer Fredette

Position: PG
Height: 6-3
Weight: 196
Age: 22
School: Brigham Young


Analysis: The Pacers could go a number of different ways here, but for the third straight week I think Fredette will be their man. There's a good chance that Jimmer is off the board when they draft, but if he's here, he'll be very hard to pass up.

Tristan Thompson and Markieff Morris are all also serious options here as well if both are still on the board.

Philadelphia
Tristan Thompson

Position: PF
Height: 6-9
Weight: 228
Age: 20
School: Texas




Analysis: Thompson could go as high as No. 5 or No. 6. But he also could slide. Just about every team I spoke to likes him a lot, but I've yet to find the team that's fallen in love. I doubt he slips further than this though. The Sixers need more size, toughness and rebounding. Thompson provides all three. Jordan Hamilton and Markieff Morris are also options here.

New York
rshon Brooks

Position: SG
Height: 6-5
Weight: 195
Age: 22
School: Providence


Analysis: The Knicks are really hoping that either Klay Thompson or Jimmer Fredette fall to them. But if they don't, watch out for Brooks. He had a great workout in New York, has the sort of swagger that Knicks guards need and the Knicks were wowed by his ability to pass the ball too.

Brooks, at 22, doesn't have the upside of a guy like Josh Selby, but his size advantage is big and so is his ability to step in and play right away.

Washington
(via Atlanta)


Jordan Hamilton

Position: SF
Height: 6-9
Weight: 229
Age: 20
School: Texas


Analysis: Hamilton is often compared to Wizards small forward Rashard Lewis. Both are big men with sweet strokes that can catch fire. But with Lewis on the back end of his career and the Wizards actively shopping him, I don't think the team will shy away from adding another scorer to put around John Wall.

Charlotte
(via New Orleans)


Markieff Morris

Position: PF/C
Height: 6-9
Weight: 241
Age: 21
School: Kansas


Analysis: The Bobcats have needs just about everywhere and Morris should be a good fit. He's strong, he's defensive minded, he rebounds and he blocks shots. He's a bit undersized to play the 5, but his ability to stretch the floor will be welcomed.

Minnesota
(via Memphis)
Donatas Motiejunas

Position: PF
Height: 7-0
Weight: 220
Age: 19
Country: Lithuania


Analysis: The Wolves have the best group of international scouts in the NBA and if Motiejunas falls this far, I think they'd snap him up here. He's an aggressive scorer and has size -- two things the Wolves could use in the post.

Marshon Brooks, Kenneth Faried, Nikola Mirotic and Charles Jenkins are also possibilities.

Portland


Kenneth Faried

Position: PF
Height: 6-8
Weight: 225
Age: 21
School: Morehead State


Analysis: The Blazers fell in love with Faried last year before he withdrew from the draft. If they are fortunate enough to get a second chance at him this year, they'll grab him. His relentlessness on the boards is a nice complement to LaMarcus Aldridge's more offensive-minded style.

Markieff Morris, Tobias Harris, Darius Morris, Reggie Jackson are other players to watch.

Denver



Tobias Harris

Position: PF
Height: 6-8
Weight: 223
Age: 18
School: Tennessee


Analysis: Harris may be one of the more underrated players in the draft. He can play both the 3 and 4, and he has a very high basketball IQ and an NBA body. Harris doesn't do any one thing at an elite level, but he is one of the most well-rounded players in the draft.

Charles Jenkins, Iman Shumpert and Tyler Honeycutt are other possibilities here.

Houston
(via Orlando)


Darius Morris

Position: PG
Height: 6-5
Weight: 190
Age: 20
School: Michigan


Analysis: We have the Rockets going big with pick No. 14 and we have them going big again at No. 23. Morris is a different kind of big. He's a point guard who towers over the competition. If he were a better shooter he'd be going much, much higher in the draft. But at this point he's a steal.

Oklahoma City

Nikola Mirotic

Position: SF
Height: 6-10
Weight: 226
Age: 21
Country: Serbia


Analysis: Sam Presti is an opportunist, and he is patient -- two critical traits in a great GM. Mirotic, based on talent, is a lottery pick. But a massive buyout means he won't be playing in the NBA anytime soon. Mirotic shocked NBA teams by deciding to stay in the draft.

It will likely take him three years to actually make it to the NBA, but given the talent level, the Thunder could be getting a major steal down the road. If Mirotic is off the board, Davis Bertans and Bogan Bogdanovic are possibilities.

Boston


Jeremy Tyler

Position: C
Height: 6-11
Weight: 263
Age: 19
Team: Tokyo Apache


Analysis: The Celtics are going to start rebuilding soon and they need to hit a home run again the same way they did with Rajon Rondo. Tyler could be that guy. If he had played in college, he might have had a chance to be a top-10 pick with his talent.

He's long, athletic and raw, but if he succeeds, he could be a major pickup for the Celtics. JaJuan Johnson, Justin Harper and Jon Leuer are also possibilities.

Dallas



Josh Selby

Position: PG
Height: 6-3
Weight: 195
Age: 20
School: Kansas


Analysis: The Mavs have won the title, but now it's time to begin thinking about the future. While the Mavs may have one more long run in those veteran legs, it's unlikely. Selby, like Tyler, could be a home run if he's developed right. His ability to get to the basket is really unmatched.

New Jersey
(via L.A. Lakers)


Reggie Jackson

Position: PG
Height: 6-3
Weight: 208
Age: 21
School: Boston College


Analysis: Yes, the Nets have Deron Williams. But he's not a sure thing to stay in New Jersey after next season. Even if he does, Jackson would be a terrific backup and a player who could play off the ball in certain situations.

Had he not had a knee injury when the predraft process began, he could've gone much higher. He's great value here. Justin Harper, Tyler Honeycutt, JaJuan Johnson and Jeremy Tyler are all options here too.

Chicago
(via Miami)


Justin Harper

Position: PF
Height: 6-9
Weight: 228
Age: 21
School: Richmond


Analysis: Harper was one of the best stretch 4s in college basketball last season. He also has size and is a pretty good athlete. The Bulls need perimeter shooting and Harper should be able to give them some.

Charles Jenkins, Tyler Honeycutt and Jeremy Tyler are also possibilities.

San Antonio


Davis Bertans

Position: SF
Height: 6-10
Weight: 210
Age: 18
Country: Latvia


Analysis: The Spurs have done a good job over the years of finding young international players and stashing them overseas for a few years until they're ready.

Bertans showed he can be a big-time shooter at the Nike Hoop Summit and adidas Eurocamp. At 18, he's worth taking a flier on and seeing what he can accomplish after another year or two in Europe.

Chicago
Tyler Honeycutt

Position: G/F
Height: 6-8
Weight: 188
Age: 20
School: UCLA




Analysis: The Bulls need scorers in their backcourt and ultimately need to find a backup for Derrick Rose at point guard. Honeycutt wasn't a dominating scorer in college, but his versatility should make him a nice fit in Chicago.



Next Five In: JaJuan Johnson, F, Purdue; Charles Jenkins, G, Hofstra; Nolan Smith, G, Duke; Jordan Williams, F/C, Maryland; Chandler Parsons, F, Florida

Yeah, that's something that people need to realize.

At some point, Wade becomes the primary scorer for that team. Also, if they want to succeed, they're going to have to start integrating Bosh into the system as more than a spot up shooter. They need him operating out of the post.

What becomes of LeBron James' ppg? It drops.

People forget that James has already been in the league for a long time. He's starting to lose some of his athleticism already.

What a typically ridiculous post. LeBron averaged more points, rebounds and assists than Wade in the regular season this year. They've been in the league for the same number of years but LeBron is 3 years younger. Wade has a significantly longer history of injuries. And yet in your pretend world Wade is going to become the "primary scorer"? You really need to think a little before you post.

Best Dirk article I've ever read. He went to Australia with his German mentor and basically just lived like a bum for weeks in the wilderness.

http://www.dallasobserver.com/2007-11-22/news/crocodile-nowitzki/

Crocodile Nowitzki

Dirk Nowitzki was lost. And he was starting to stink.

He had come this far, deep into the Australian Outback, and now that it was dark, he didn't know where he was. Not exactly, anyway. He'd ended up on a patch of wind-swept dirt, surrounded by sagebrush and stiff yellow grass, a place to park the Jeep and build a campfire.

The closest town of any significance was Alice Springs, or the Alice, as the locals called it. It was once a telegraph station so remote it had to be stocked by camel train. Aborigines could still be seen at times on its outskirts, wading shirtless in the muddy Todd River. But that was 250 miles away. Other than the wind, which blew softly through camp, the night was silent.

Nowitzki sat in front of the fire, strumming his guitar and sipping his whiskey straight from the bottle. He had stopped shaving days ago and didn't know when he would bathe next.

He had been in Australia for a week and a half, even though it was May, and by all accounts he should have been somewhere else. He should've been on a basketball court, leading the Dallas Mavericks deep into the NBA Playoffs. He should've been winning a championship. But for the second year in a row, the season had ended in disappointment. Once again people were questioning his mental toughness.

He had but one traveling companion on this trip, his mentor Holger Geschwinder, a mostly bald 62-year-old German with puffy bags under his eyes and a big Roman nose that looked like it had been broken in a fistfight, or several fistfights over the years. In the light of the fire, his features looked sharp, as if his head had been cut from granite.

Nowitzki had come to Australia because he didn't want to be recognized. He didn't want to be reminded of his failures, of the places he should have been.

In his haste to leave Dallas, he had failed to consider one thing—it was winter in Australia, meaning darkness would fall early each night of his trip. At the present moment, sitting in front of the fire, there was nothing to do but sit and think, or talk to Geschwinder.

"Why me?" Nowitzki wondered, gazing into the glowing embers. "Why is this happening to me?"

He had just a few weeks to find the answer.

I dont really agree with the felton trade, however Felton has said he never was a fan of the trade to Denver, so really we would of had him for one more year and he would of been gone. Besides we drafted a PF that can rebound like no one has seen in college, and we got a new PG from Texas in that trade. oh we got Andre Miller back, no biggie.

Count me surprised. I didn't think he was a second rounder...but I didn't project him as a lottery pick either. Congrats to the whole Jimmer family. I hope it works out well for him.

However, I have been following the Zags for awhile and have seen this story before. A 6-2 °Ole! guard will need to find just the right spot to have any hope of success in the NBA. Hopefully Jimmer has found it in Sac-town.

And great work by the Mavs to get a vet in Fernandez, still on his rookie contract at low pay instead of whatever project they may have drafted at #26. This likely means Stevenson is on the way out.

Ujiri said after the Melo trade they believe the new CBA will put much more focus on drafting and developing young talent so the Nugz being so much more active than normal isn't too suprising.

I'm really hoping the new agreement allows for a one time release period to get out of contracts without cap hits like the NHL did so Harrington and Birdman are off the books. That would leave:

C: Mozgov, Koufus
PF: Nene, Faired, Maduabum
SF: Gallinari, Chandler, Forbes
SG: Afflalo, Hamilton
PG: Lawson, Miller

Its always fun to punk Lakers fans, because they're the whiniest bandwagon frontrunner fans of them all. They show up in your arena talking trash and then when their team gets smacked around they sneak out the back door before the whistle blows. So thanks for giving us Mavs fans the opportunity to watch your team get swept in the second round.

I backed off in here because I was obviously annoying the crap out of everyone and there are some people that I like that look at these threads. This is a Denver board, and I'm a Dallas fan. I can scratch my basketball itch on Dallas boards.

Wait, what?

No, you "backed off" only after the Mavs completed one of the biggest choke jobs ever, losing to an 8 seed and after you talked endless amounts of **** leading up to that series.

Don't act like that was some act of kindness to us poor Nuggets fans. When the Mavs lost, you were out. Much like Maven now.

Well, actually, Maven bailed before his team was ever totally out of it.

I, like many other people in this country, hold the Bill Simmons opinion of that series. It makes no sense to harp on it here with a bunch of Nuggets fans.

You can only hope that I don't remind you of how the Mavs anihilated the Lakers, unraveling the would-be dynasty

Least the Lakers had dynasties and were a would be dynasty at the time. Something the Mavs will never achieve.

Coming from Mr. Bandwagoner himself. You checked out after your team lost to the Heat in 2006, never to be seen again until the recent playoffs where (Surprise! Surprise!) your Mavericks were on a roll.

Not really.

I entered this thread talking about LeBron James and talking up the Lakers this season. I had no idea that Dallas would squelch their three-peat with such precision and completeness, or that Dallas would dominate the playoffs. I knew that they could, but I didn't expect Dirk's cast to step up at all, given that they have failed so often in t he past.

I just usually talk basketball on a Mavs site instead of this one.

I joined this thread's discussion because some goobers were touting LeBron James and the Heat over the Lakers. I'd still take the Lakers over the Heat. Especially now that Bryant is copying Dirk's shot. ;D
