All I'm gunna say is this. I'm impressed, the Mavs are in fact playing great.
BUT with that said, what about Flip Saunders? What about Mike D'Antoni?
Granted, Flip already had a great team, but still, they could reasonably win 70 games. That is something special.
And D'Antoni, everybody left that team for dead after Amare went down, and they're right there.
Again, this isn't Avery Johnson hate, but I'd take Flip and Mike over him, I think.
I also think that it could come down to Chauncy vs. Nash for MVP... Chauncy is leading that Piston squad, but same deal, Nash is carrying that team without it's best player.
