Yea...if you really go through his moves with the team and Nellie Jr.'s moves from 04 to present it's pretty awful...same with draft picks.

Like...the only great signing was Tyson in 11 and they readily admit that they didn't even want him and just got lucky because it's all we really could do.

I love Cuban for at least trying to win, but he and Nellie Jr. have put out a lot of shit over the years from players to coaches...especially considering the stability an all time franchise guy like Dirk provided pretty much from the jump.

We'd have 0 chance to win the title though.

These moves weren't about just getting better it was about putting a team out there that if it played well...had legit chances to win the title.

Not win regular season games or 1 round.

Our biggest weakness was/is containing the ball for our guards. Giving us Jameer/Calderon would only make that problem worse.

Would our offense be much better? Absolutely, but no way in hell a team starting Nelson or Calderon in the West is winning the title.

This has been title or bust for years and it will continue to be that until Dirk is gone.

Just the way it is.

So while the Rondo trade didn't work, it's not like sitting still would have made sense. And the trade won't hurt us next year at all.

The real killer was the Parsons signing.

On how much Dirk taking a less expensive contract made the Rondo trade possible:

Cuban: “All of it. This trade was Dirk’s trade. Without Dirk doing what he did, we would’ve been unable to pull it all together.”

Dirk tried to be honourable but got his head sliced in the end If you're gonna play the game of rings, you win or you die.
