There's no shame in losing to a team with 3 future Hall of Famers and a Hall of Fame coach. Golden State is just a different level of talent

@Callie W311 super team is a team with 3 hof in prime

Callie W311 Mês atrás
@John Daley ya, but the comment I responded to was using the "super team" as a negative. Usually what people mean when they say "super team" is what Lebron did in Miami, LA, and what KD tried to do in Brooklyn. So, it's almost like, a put down. And it's not the Warrior's fault they have great management and coaching staff. They didn't need to buy a big star. The word super team is usually affiliated with a negative connotation.

@Orend Johnson Jr yea because in the rockets he had to be a scorer 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️ seems like u only watch first take. with the 76ers he is a point guard ! and he has a hamstring injury and a put up 22 8 9. both stars injured took the heat to 6 games. you’re really gonna tell me a healthy 6ers don’t beat that miami team 🤣 either way the point is the rockets harden is basically what luka is rn only thing is luka is bigger and can post

@Jim Brave but what you are saying is still subjective and conjecture....Wiggins is spoken of now because gsw have progressed as far as they have...for the entire season I'm pretty certain Zion was way and beyond any mentions Wiggins may have had... This is not a conversation about talent or teams...simply about who is most spoken of

Every other team got it wrong, everyone does 3 point with isolation while Warriors does it with ball movement that leads to 3 point
yup ..even the greatest shooter alive steph is driving to the basket alot more now lol , cuz defenders assume hes always goin to shoot the 3

This series shows us the Mavs aren't just a 1st/2nd round exit team with Luka anymore. But it does show that they're not ready to be champions yet. They're time will come but just not this year. And the road to a championship through the West will onlt get harder next year with the Clippers being healthy, the Nuggets being healthy, the Warriors potentially getting Wiseman back, Memphis on the rise, Zion coming back with Ingram and Mccollum, Anthony Edwards evolving, etc.

Kevin Taylor

The Morantless Grizzlies were the best challenge of any team in the West. Without Morant they moved the ball well, played stellar D and were physical. The Mavs play half court ISO ball and don't rebound as well or play nearly good enough D to stop the Warriors. Even if the Mavs were going to steal a game because they shot well, beating the Warriors for 4 games was a long shot.
Henry_Linarez Mês atrás
Couldn’t agree more with Stephen A. The Mavs already exceeded expectations by being there. The Mavs need to find a better cast of characters to compliment Luka.

Barth Grooks
Barth Grooks Mês atrás
@loookaroundyou they have no big, and only luka and Brunson are consistent at scoring off the dribble thats why they chuck up so many 3s... Take luka off this team and there in the bottom three worst teams in the league. Overall This mavs team is trash but they got one of the best players in the league and thats why theyre in the wcf.
loookaroundyou Mês atrás
@Barth Grooks They're not trash and they led the Warriors in Game 2, but GSW is an excellent team which has an unselfish style of play. Hero ball seems to inevitably fail in the playoffs. But yeah, at least making a shot or two would have been helpful for those dudes going 0-15. But then again, Kidd let his team die by the three
Barth Grooks
Barth Grooks Mês atrás
@loookaroundyou its not a cop out to say luka needs more help tho... This team is trash.. If kleber and bullock could have shot an awful 33% last night the mavs would have won.

It shows how Cp3 choked again. Like when the Clippers blew a 3-1 lead. Everyone wanted to see Clippers vs Warriors rematch seeing that they were the last time in the west to eliminate the Warriors since 2015. Phoenix were more balanced than the Mavs to face the Warriors

Honestly I ain't even mad about losing against *the warriors in the WCF* since this will only help Luka (who's 23yr old) understand what it takes to win it all and I also like the outcome bc it shows Mavericks are finally in the right direction in terms of winning! This series also showed if they had 2-3 more quality players, not even a co star but quality players the Mavs could've honestly made a run for the title this year! It's frustrating how close they were but also relieving knowing they're close to being true contenders! All I gotta say is gg to warriors players, they've shown nothing but the highest standards of winning basketball.

@apothe6 Bro unless Luka gets a co star like Pipen (Best second option in the NBA a that time). Or another teammate like kyrie or AD or a team like Tatum and Jokic he will not win.
apothe6 Mês atrás
Jordan and Lebron didnt win until they were 28 or so. Lukas 23, yes, it's early, we have time to develop Brunson and get everyone better. Hopefully we can level up and compete with these guys.

Callie W311 Mês atrás
@Pumelela Banca it's so funny people talking about the west, when just 4 of 5 years ago, the west was so much better than the east, that the finals may as well have been the GSW against the Heat. It's cool and strange how quickly things can change. But I don't think the west is as weak as you're implying.

@Jay yep he is young and talented. But so are the other guys I mentioned. They have teams far better than the mavs collectively. I could be wrong because they have trade asserts in Brunson and Spenser, they could get a very good second option guy who will complement luka.

@Blue Crystal Star facts
Page Mês atrás
@Blue Crystal Star What are you talking about? That is precisly my point, MJ and LeBron did not win until they had the right amount of talent around them but they never changed their style of play, both ball dominant players with usage ratings in the high 20s up to mid 30s. Jordan was predominantly an iso scorer who got a ton of points from there and LeBron is a point forward who generates a lot of points by getting defenses to collapse on him and he dishes assists out or scores despite that.
Page Mês atrás
@Evolve816 Luka is better than Harden. Also players like LeBron and MJ won while being very ball dominant and having usage rating over 30%. Stop focusing in Soften so much. He was MUCH worse in the playoffs than Doncic and had played with far more talent.

Those saying Dallas shouldn’t be here… have you watched this season and specially the playoffs? DALLAS IS NOT PLAYING BAD BASKETBALL, they’ve actually been playing pretty well, Golden State is just significantly superior. That’s it. Whenever you have a guy averaging almost 35 (Luka) another one 22 (Brunson) another one 16 (Dinwiddie) and two other players over 10 pts a game (or close to 10) you’re playing good basketball. The only truly bad game they had was last night.

@Shaheed Harun you can’t say they don’t belong there when they earned the right. You can say they overachieved based on their roster but they earned it, regardless whether you think they believe they belong there or not.

Angel Aquino
Angel Aquino Mês atrás
@Shaheed Harun they do belong in the WCF, they have been better than almost everybody all season long, won 52 games, beat Utah and the number one seed, whether you like it or not does not mean they don’t deserve to be where they’re at. The fact that they got this far is a testament to Luka’s greatness and Jason Kidd’s great coaching. They surely need a rim protector to make the roster better, but a big part of the reason why Golden State is dominating them is also lack of experience, this is a learning experience from them, everyone including Luka will be better next year. With that newly acquired experience plus a few off season roster changes they could go far in the playoffs again next season. And stop talking about injury being a factor like this year is an exception, EVERY YEAR injuries are a bit factor in the league, tell me the last season when everybody was fully healthy… I’ll wait. 😐 Even GS is missing Payton II, Iggy and Wiseman, so no excuses.

Yes I’m watching them getting swept right now. Mavs are purely a fluke and fool’s gold! They have ZERO depth and no front court! Their 3 best players are at PG 🤣 Talk about terrible roster construction Dallas doesn’t belong in the WCF. They lived off the fortune of the west being mighty weak this year! You can’t win it all w/ 1 great player Only reason they here is all the injured stars this year - and/or teams that flopped. They are never making it back… *weakest team in a conf finals ever!!!* And a shame they make 1 player do all the work

We are not talking nearly enough about how the Phoenix Suns completely collapsed mentally as well. That locker room was obviously gone. You had DA nearly fighting with the coach. Chris Paul looked like he didn't want to be there. It was clear that team was crumbling. They have been exposed and looked frustrated and done. So the Mavs benefited from a team that was under collapse.

Julian From Legal
Julian From Legal Mês atrás
The Mavs also have to understand that there is a ceiling to how far you can get with your game plan built around one superstar (i.e. Luka). Once you neutralize the one superstar with an effective guard or doubles, the game plan collapses. The Warriors are so lethal because even if you trap Steph, they have so much depth (e.g., Thompson, Poole) that can also score.

He gets credit, he was an all-star. I think the pressure of being the #1 pick got to him. Coming to the Warriors was the best thing for him. It took the pressure away and he could just play, and play hard! He's coming into himself and it's sad that he's probably going to be gone after this season ends.

We saw the same thing with James Harden every year. When your best guy is mostly just dribble dribble dribble and plays no defense it's tough to win 4-7 when you play good teams. GSW keeps the ball moving so their guys are always ready. It's tough to watch one guy dominate the ball all game then be ready to make shots. The series is over

Luka is an excellent facilitator and a willing passer. Most of his teammates are simply not good enough, so he is forced to put the ball in his hands more to give his team a chance to win. I can assure you if the roles were reversed and he had guys like Thompson, Green, or Poole on his team, he would be passing way more.

This Dallas team is just not a finals team yet. They overachieved so far, guys like Bullock and DFS are gassed from playing 42 minutes for 17 games now and they can't do it anymore. Luka needs more help, a defensive Big, another 3&D wing and then the Mavs can try again next year

Maybe they are tired, but still no excuse to not score basically at all. Between the 2 there was a total of 9 points last night, ALL from DFS. If they are exhausted, they should have at least scored in the first half of the game.

@Sgchriss scoring is not their problem, it's defense and having a undersized 2 guard won't help that.

Didn’t Stephen A say the Mavs would get blown out by the Suns and no one else expected them to make it this far. Not only that, it’s not like the mavs are getting blown out by the Warriors (who are a great team) these games are close, but this Warriors team is deep and the most experienced team in the Playoffs.
X ACE X Mês atrás
We know the Mavs need a big man to help their rebounding but that’s not gonna solve all of their problems immediately. Their supporting cast needs to focus this off-season on getting better in all aspects. Look at guys like Andrew Wiggins and Marcus Smart. Those dudes really focused on improving weak points in their game to help their teams. The Mavs have a lot of skill on their team, they’ve gotta improve their defense and rebounding and that includes Doncic too if they want to get back to the WCF next year.

The reason why Dallas secondary players are missing so much it's because what the coach said now they start hesitating because in their mind there trying to think where there they should shoot it or penetrate causing that hesitation there not sure and they start missing a lot of shoots game is over swept in 4

The Mavs need a 2-way wing and a guy like Steven Adams in the middle. They would be MUCH better. That's the direction they need to go in. If that means getting rid of Brunson or Bullock, so be it. Imagine Wiggins doesn't resign and goes to

I would not say they have "nothing" because Kleber is ok at it but they need a real ring protector for sure... and rebound. That game 3 was painful to watch. Whenever they got a good defense on a play and made someone take a contested shot, the Warriors got a second or third chance. But getting a rim protector and fixing their rebound with a player that fits this "all shooters" around Luka style gonna be expensive...

The series revealed more about Dubs than Mavs. I never seen nothing more embarrassing for what performance the Mavs have gotten themselves into the world of trouble they jump to a pond that is way too deep for them to battle against these boys who are annihilating and sent them home

You know who’d be *perfect* for Dallas? Jaren Jackson Jr. can shoot the lights out so he wouldn’t hurt their offense and can enable them to play 5 out AND he’s arguably the best rim protector in the league. He’s an inside presence on offense as well bc he is a low post offense machine as well. But Memphis would never give him up

Jackson just needs to learn how to close games better, he does too much of trying to play hero ball.

Nah What they should have pointed out is that the warriors' threat from range is what opens up driving lanes and back cuts to the basket. They force you to pick your poison. 50 pts in the paint is the Mavericks preference to give up 2's instead of 3's. IF you're going to use that strategy then you need a rim protector like Bam Adebayo who can score on offense and close out on perimeter shooters. I believe Miami has the best chance at beating Golden State when healthy.

If I’m the Mavs organization, I’m trying to trade everyone but Doncic and Brusnon in the off-season. This roster isn’t awful anywhere except for the center spot, but nobody outside of Doncic and Brunson is consistent enough to help in a deep playoff run. That’s also the case for Dinwiddie and a healthy THJ. They’re the next 2 best players, but those contracts are eating up too much salary cap for 2 guys that tend to disappear for games where they’re badly needed. Just my opinion. I still think this series goes 5 games at least, but that doesn’t change the Mavericks flaws.

Yep. Mavs fan here. This series was gonna come down to the supporting casts for each team - Poole, Wiggins and Looney for Warriors; Kleber, Finney-Smith, Bullock for the Mavs. Kleber has been the biggest disappointment on the offensive end. I can only recall one made three and very few offensive rebounds. Last night the Mavs showed flashes of ball movement and making open shots, but then they would have trips where it was the Doncic dribble-and-shoot show or everyone touches the ball and the supporting cast misses the shot. That's just not feasible playoff basketball. That five-on-the-three-line spread offense needs guys who can shoot AND slash.

I mean at the end of the day we really need to give credit to KERR his coaching pedigree and how hes gotten SOLID production from his role players/bench all season dating to pre-season or last season...HE gets his guys to play like starters big mins etc play like its their last game. He commands it from them its only something ive really seen out of ty-lue coaching his broken down clippers roster this season getting them to fight back in games below 20+. The second the starters come out THE NEXT MAN up steps up with equal mental and physical engagement to the game as if it were the last min of the game....all game. At the end of the day as great a player/coach kidd is currently KERR is on a completely different level even starting looney with the recommendation of dray/the starters on GSW...and getting insane production/effort starting looney vs memphis etc...these are HUGE aspects that player personal aside....kerr just brings to the table period...i saw this day 1 pre-season vs my lakers....this whole pedigree/each player on the roster playing up to a HIGHER standard set by kerr/champions on the GSW roster that the newer/younger players played RIGHT UP to. How "apparent" this aspect has GROWN over the last few weeks is largely sad or a sad depiction to how kerrs coaching and the overalls of the GSW roster/bench have been covered in the more or less past 1-2 seasons. Kerr ty lue, spol are pretty much on the top of the echelon of current/active coaches. Given their history/rosters have proven as much in the last 5 years.

Dončić plays like James Harden with his handling of the ball all the time and then taken the shot. This allows any defense to focus on him having the ball and the other team members walking in the rain. His character doesn't say superstar because he's always complaining about something and will not hustle back on defense. Could it be he's out of shape?

I think Lebron is the goat and his heat team was fire but they just weren’t around long enough and they only got two chips where the bulls got 6 obviously and the warriors are closing in on number 4 when’s the last time you seen a core as good as the warriors stay the same without at least one guy walking away cause he thinks he’s better than the group, I don’t knock Lebron for leaving the hoop I’m actually from Akron Ohio lol but compared to the bulls and warriors nothing is even close except Kobe and shaq which I’d say is either tied for second or could have a good argument for second cause they three peat-ed
