Here is a frightening idea, through Tim MacMahon of ESPNDallas.com:»You do not get any better than Rick Carlisle crime, but Carlisle’s offense got better this offseason.»
Drink that one in.
Last season, Carlisle’s Mavs tied for second in the league with an offensive rating of 109, decimal points behind the NBA-best Los Angeles Clippers, according to NBA.com. Dallas brought in Jameer Nelson to soften the blow, while the loss of ace sniper and steady facilitator Jose Calderon will sting. And Monta Ellis can absorb a few possessions as well, which will not be a terrible thing for the Mavs’ attack.
The increase comes in Chandler Parsons, who will play small forward to consume almost all of the wing moments Shawn Marion and Vince Carter shared. Tyson Chandler mans the middle of everything should be an improved defense.
What Dallas has is fragile. It depends on the continuing and health potency of Dirk Nowitzki, around whom an crime that is elite may nevertheless be built. Nowitzki is, himself, although that’s a remarkable thing to mention about a player.
As long as he’s able to stand erect, he’ll be a defense-shredder from the high post. And the remainder of the Mavs will play him off as on the strings are pulled by Carlisle from the seat.
Doubt this group of vets.
