Red face Cuban: This offseason could be nuclear winter

Quote:
Mark Cuban is anticipating this summer's free agency period as much as is the 2010 class.

"In 09, it could be a nuclear winter," said Cuban. "I think well see a lot of guys, anticipating 2010 and also with an eye to a new collective-bargaining agreement, sign one-year deals. While everybody is clearing room for 2010, Im looking for bargains for 09. As people wait to make their move in 2010, there could be a lot of one-year deals."

Cuban was also asked if he would make the Jason Kidd trade again.

"Id do it again, 100 times out of 100. J-Kidd has been incredible for us."

That's a good game plan, everyone's going to be banking on 2010, but will the Mavericks even have any money to offer the 2009 free agent class?

Dallas is a doomed franchise due to leadership from the top with Cuban.

As long as Dirk is your #1, you ain't winnin' a thing no matter how much cap space they have.

But Cuban turned them from a cellar-dweller to playoff contender, so he deserves credit. Dallas is like Phoenix in that their best days are behind them. Good teams, but not great. I wouldn't be surprised if Cuban made some moves to get them back to the upper-tier this year.

He deserves no credit.

He has one of the highest payrolls year in/year out and has achieved nothing.

The Mavs have been the Knicks with basically 25 more regular season wins per year.

That's nothing to be proud of...it's actually pathetic.
