Obviously not. DRob would abuse any of the Mavs big while Nowitzki would be forced to stay with Tim. Or the other way around. Definite advantage for the Spurs.

Plus even in his last few years, David was lighting quick on D. Nazr and Rasho, not so much. :-p

DROB would not be on the bench. Pop would have confidence in him

he thinks Nazr and Rasho suck

I don't think that's the complete picture. D-Rob was excellent on D, and his rotations were crisp. I think a better indicator would be either opponents points in the paint, Opponents FG% and opponents PPG.

David was in there to play D. And he did quite well if I remember. The intimidator in the low block helped, but Steve Kerr was THE MAV KILLER.

DRob even in his 40s can still play better than Rasho and Nazr combined. But then Pop would still put him on the bench whenever our rotation allow us to. That's because he's completely obssessed with small ball right now. Just like he didn't run plays for DRob before he won't run plays for him now, and so he'll be on the bench.

Well, the situation in 2003 wasn't all that dissimilar.

Mavs had Raja Bell as a starter, and Tim was supposed to guard him but pretty much left him alone. He bagged quite a few open jumpers but he didn't drive to the basket, and the Mavs didn't look for him all that much, so the Spurs got away with it.

DRob was still very quick in his last year, so he would have better success against Dirk or Howard than any of our current bigs, Tim included. Malik would also see time since he's 6'7". The key point is that both of those guys could guard multiple positions. That is not true of Rasho and Nazr.

Pop would have confidence in DROB's defense so there is no way he comes off the bench. Pop wouldnt bench DROB unless he was hurting. Nazr or Rasho couldnt touch DROB's jock even in his last year

I think it's apples and oranges. The Full Throttle mavs of 03, were one of the best scoring teams ever. The Full Choke mavs of 06, play lots of d, and have a great half court game.
