Bill Simmons on the Mavericks acquiring Elton Brand and Chris Kaman to replace … well, Dallas is essentially starting over: “I wasn’t crazy about Elton Brand and Chris Kaman playing together in 2006 when they were still good.”
Mark Cuban, the Dallas Mavericks owner, responded thusly: “They (sic) next smart personnel comment you mae (sic) will be your first.” [Cuban has since deleted the tweet. Ed. Actually, he has not. You just can’t see them if you have twitter to set “no replies.”]
Why so defensive Mark? Your franchise has been gutted, and you replaced old guys like Kidd and Terry with … slightly younger (but still old) guys like Brand and Kaman. Dallas is headed to the 2013 lottery.
