4 REASONS THE MAVS CAN CONTEND FOR AN NBA TITLE

|

We love the Dallas Mavericks here at Olympus Team Ranch. And we genuinely think they’ll be a problem for opposing teams in the NBA playoffs. Here are four reasons we think the Mavs can contend for an NBA championship.

1. Luka

Unlimited shooting range. Tremendous vision. Size and strength that make him impossible for smaller guards to defend. Plainly put, Luka Dončić is a generational talent. And generational talents contend for championships. We’ll see if the 6-foot-7 star from Slovenia has the supporting cast to pull it off in 2021-22. But a title is always in play with a guy like this on your roster.

2. The Wide Open West

Yeah, the Suns, Grizzlies, and Warriors are wreaking havoc atop the Western Conference standings, but Dallas isn’t far behind. Here’s why:

  • This Devin Booker-led iteration of the Phoenix Suns is still relatively new to superpower status. We’re betting they’ll be prone to upsets come playoff time. They’re just two seasons and Chris Paul’s addition from a 34-39 season. And have you seen Playoff Chris Paul in action?

  • The Warriors are just a season removed from the NBA lottery. Yes, they have championship pedigree with Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green leading the charge, but are we really confident they’re all the way back? 

  • Ja Morant is tearing up the NBA, no doubt. But, as with the Suns, they’re still relatively new to contender status. 

3. The Mavs Have More Depth Than You Realize

Dorian Finney-Smith, Tim Hardaway Jr., and Reggie Bullock bring it from long distance. Kristaps Porzingis is a crafty big man with impressive shooting range and strong presence in the paint. Jalen Brunson is finding his way as a borderline star at the point guard position. Trade deadline acquisition Spencer Dinwiddie is a capable scorer who gives the Mavs’ backcourt a boost. This roster is loaded. Don’t be surprised if they make some noise in the playoffs.
