Put it this way - if it weren't the playoffs, Dirk would sit out for the rest of the week.
If we play anywhere near the way we're capable, the Mavs are in trouble.
But we can't come out flat just because he's hurt. Attack and destry these panzies.
Not to wish any ill will upon players, but I'm not too upset about Dirk busting his ankle. Until then, it looked like the only way to beat the refs, I mean the Mavs, was to get Cuban jailed for tax evasion and have his assets frozen.
Bottom line is, we're better than the MAvs -- we're just not playing that well, and we're not getting a fair shake from the refs.
