Automatic TRANSCRIPT

It's going to come out in January Really excited about it. I think mass fans are GonNa like it a lot but in the meantime there's an article up where Martin listed his top five games to watch for this month and that's a monthly series so in January who have his next top five games to watch for that month. We're GONNA talk about the maverick schedule into wolf for the rest of the of December because it is brutal but I I wanted to show start start the show off with a little bit of Trivia. I shared this on twitter and it was so amazing I just feel like I have to share it here in case anyone listening is not following me. So so it's about how the Mavericks got their name which you probably know. They came into the to the league. A local radio station in hosted a contest contest and invited mavs fans to send in submissions for what they thought the name of the team should be and then they sent sent those submissions to Don Carter and they could choose the name so once. The name Mavericks was chosen. The fans who suggested that at work entered into a drawing to get season tickets. But what's interesting is the number of people who suggested the name Mavericks. Would you like to guess Martin. Seventy seventy seven forty one just as good. I mean no better. That completely blew my mind when I saw that because I thought I was like no. What are the chances who I was like no freaking way and I had to? I found an archived version version of an article that was published on NBA Dot Com. So I know it's legit and it said this very thing that the number of people that wrote in and submitted the name name Mavericks forty-one people and for those that don't know where Mavericks fans known for those of you that don't know Eh Dirk wore the number forty. Yes I feel like that is also just as obvious as you ruin the joke. The joke was going to the obvious. No better you ruined. I made it better anyway another little tidbit piece of Trivia the Mavericks First Game as a franchise was the kids to the San Antonio Spurs. Did you know that. And they also won in that game which I thought was interesting because I was like man. I can't imagine after that game. Everyone was like pumped up and like yeah. We're here we have arrived and we're going to be competitive and all this stuff and little. Did they know that you know the spurs would be like the big brother rather as Derek called them to the mavericks and the Mavs went on to go like four and sixteen or something over the next twenty games. It was not a good start but we got that win. We got all losses. That we've had against the Spurs win anyway just some Trivia. It's research I was doing for the article I was talking talking about. That's coming out in January. There's some other little nuggets that I've been finding that are super interesting that I might share on twitter but anyway I wanted to start with that so something something else I shared on twitter twitter moving onto actual topics for the podcast. I asked this question because I don't know I it. It sounds crazy but I feel like it's legit. The question was are the Mavericks a championship team. And I know when you hear that it's like whoa slowdown own. No they're not but I was like I mean seriously so are you asking. Are they contenders or could this team team when it all I mean I guess in the question. I'm I'm saying. Could this team win at all. No now when I ask that I don't even vigneault if I believe that but I think I think it's worth I think they're at the point where it's a conversation we can have. I think we're at the point where you can say in. Someone doesn't think you're a complete idiot. Well I mean they're the third in the West record wise they are tied. Will they have the the the number one offensive rating at one hundred sixteen point. Nine point of the offense is of all time per one hundred possessions of all time yes. They are currently fourteenth and in defensive rating and that it went up to twelve for a minute and then back down to fourteen after the kings game I thought at one point they were eighth eighth. No okay now. I don't think they ever that high but net rating. They are currently tied for second at nine point. Four both look at these teams James here. The the top ten teams in overall net rating number ten year the Denver Nuggets a lot of people would say their contenders number nine. The Houston Rockets. Another team that a lot of people say are contenders. I don't well for the sake of argument. Let's just say that most people consider these teams is to be well. I don't next what's next on your list. That's needed the list. It's next on the list number eight. Wait we're already on number eight. Oh did you start at number ten. Okay okay clearly. I wasn't paying attention very well. Okay continue on with your list to start over my point here. Okay so if you look at some of the top ten N.. Teams in overall net rating. And I think that going into the season most of these teams most people thought were contenders and this is kind kind of the level of play that they're playing at right now number ten. You have Denver Nuggets. I think a lot of people consider them to be contenders in the West. Maybe not win it all but contenders tenders of the Houston. Rockets are number nine. Obviously the the same way I mean they have James Harden people got better with Russell Westbrook. Then you have have Philadelphia at seven Toronto at six. Most people didn't see them there the clippers at five Boston at four Dallas at three. You will actually tied with Los Angeles for to the Lakers and Milwaukee at number one so most of those teams people. I thought coming into the season. We're going to be the or the best teams in the League and the mavs Mavericks Her right there with them. So can they contend. I definitely think they can contend with a lot are these teams. They've beaten some of them already true. Can they win it all. I don't know I think it depends on depends on porzingus in my opinion because is when you get deep in the playoffs. Everybody's good at defense. It's who can score despite. How good the defenses? Any need people that can put the ball in the basket I know Luca is one of those guys. PORZINGAS is going to have to help. Yeah I think You know when I think about it. That's a good point about are they contenders or can can they actually wouldn't it all because I think there is a difference there And so when I think about it I I kind of related back to like the thunder when they were sort of young or other teams like that kind of like the Trailblazers Navy lying on here or the warriors. When they hadn't won yet they were still kind of young? Like as a as a fan of those teams you felt like yeah. We're really good. I mean these guys are amazing. We were winning fifty plus games like yes we are contenders but as a person on the outside a you know maybe knows what it takes has seen what it takes to win a championship. You Know Oleg they're just missing that thing and you don't quite know what it is yet you just know that they're too young they can't do it yet. And so as a mass fan I think yes. They are really good and Luca I feel like can do anything. And you know the offense the defense the net rating all this stuff but I have to like if I look at it objectively objectively. I think they're they're like those teams that were really good but we're just too young and they couldn't quite get over the hump yet. The only agree hundred percent percent. But I feel like Luca is on another level like if you if you're looking at the thunder the young thunder a young durant. The argument could be made in fact. The argument is there is no argument Lucas better than Iran than he was and he was at this age. Yeah and it's it's not even close. Yeah same with a young Steph curry a young Klay Thompson all of these younger teams yes. Those superstars were kind of becoming who they were. Yeah but Lucas already at another eleven I saying he can. I mean he's gotTa prove it in the playoffs and I think it's a lot to ask ask for a twenty year old second year player to dominate in the playoffs. But if anybody can do it it would be. It would so when I'm posted this on twitter. I got got a bunch of responses and so I wanted to share them and then we can also go through insurance thoughts and one guy brought up the point that you just brought out about experienced Daniel the annual. I'm going to mispronounce his last name so I'm just going to say his at its at dizzy. Underscore to one four. He said I think the gap is experienced. We haven't been in. Those dog fights to to know how to come out on the other side. I think we'll get our hearts broken once or twice and then become a dynasty and I think that's Kinda like what you're saying it's just that experience what it takes like you know. These players know basketball. They know how to play. They know how to be good. They know how to shoot. And rebound and all that but there's that experience of like what what it's like in the playoffs and how you take your game to the next level and we saw that against the clippers like they had an ex- another level in the mavericks don't and I think that experience. This is something that it gives you something that you it's not tangible. Yeah and I don't know if you look at any of the great teams in history. The League I doubt any of them wanted all their very first year of being great they probably like Jordan got eliminated by the Pistons. I think two years in a row. Yeah I was thinking only the Celtics one. I can remember with Allen and Garnett and well that was a little different because you had the the you know. They were inveterate veteran. Yes and you had three stars at that point. They were already veteran. Yeah even the heat didn't win their first year right. Yeah and So I don't know I think it's a lot to ask. I think a lot depends on our awad depend how far they go in the playoffs. Kind of depends on the match ups who they go against and that was when point point so the other twitter is GonNa bring out from Jeremy Morris He said clippers are really really good. They're built for the playoffs and we don't match up super well with him but there isn't really early anymore Moves that allow us to match up well outside of adding someone like Drummond so in terms of trades. Could they get better. He said I I say we roll with with this. We can hang with anyone else. And so that was one point that I was making is like the clippers are the only team that really scares me. And so if it like you were saying the matchups they fall the right way to where the man's don't face them until maybe the conference finals or maybe not at all that. I think that really helps them. which you know the Mavericks have seen? What the clippers? I did that same kind of style of defense as seen that sense that clippers game true and they broke through it. I mean they saw it with the Lakers and we really struggled ruggles in the first half but in really in the first quarter in the second quarter he kind of figured some things out and that Lakers game in Los Angeles so I mean who who knows. Let's see what happens when we play them again. We see them again This month I believe Or maybe next month. We have the clippers again. And let's see what happens. I mean maybe the the mavericks have figured something out and maybe they don't scare us at all but I mean in my saying. They're going to beat the clippers. No I don't believe they would in a series. I don't think they would beat the clippers. I think they could take the Lakers. Only because of the the style the matchup Is kind of in the mavericks favor because the Lakers just don't have shooting mm-hmm and Carlisle is the king of beating teams. Don't have shooting zone defense. It takes like you have to be able to shoot threes. Yeah and so. It's it's not quite as effective as it used to be because most teams can shoot threes but against a team like the Lakers. You can zone in the zone. Also prevents prevents people from getting in the pain and as what Lebron his primary thing is getting into the paint and then either finishing the pain or dishing out. They beat Lebron before with his own. Because of that very reason. Yeah so I think the Lakers would-be a favourable matchup. I don't think I think the rockets would think we would beat the rockets rockets. The nuggets the jazz jazz knowingly sons. I don't none of those teams scare me. I think the mavericks are better than all of those teams. Yeah like I don't WanNa get cocky or anything But just I feel like I'm looking at it objectively and I think they could beat the right now avenue. I mean the Runaway Bunny Beats The rockets in the playoff. Yeah true. I've been on the other hand I I could. I wouldn't be surprised if the rockets beat them the rocket got beat last year by the Golden State Warriors Without Kevin Durant. Yeah they got beat deep by the Spurs they just lose in the playoffs because the harden effect. He's not as good in the playoffs. I don't care what anybody says. He's just not as they don't call fouls the same way..
