It didn't help that the Mavericks had at least six players who had no business being on this team: the two Jasons - Kidd & Terry, Erick Dampier, Jerry Stackhouse, Juwan Howard and Jamaal Magloire. Not only did Mark Cuban fire the wrong man but he spent last night hogging up the front row at the Cubs-Brewers game at Wrigley.

I would leave Jason Terry of that list. But Avery had to take some blame. Dirk was the only player doing anything, and he did not get nearly enough shots. Avery was more focused on getting howard and kidd going letting them take unnecessary shots instead of going with his bread and butter. Jason Kidd made chris paul look like freaking Magic Johnson. Kidd just looked very old. I bet chris paul doesn't get the same numbers against parker.
