ESPN.com has released their first NBA ranking for NBA Front Offices.
The rankings were determined by calculating the scores (0-10) collected from their panel on each team’s owner, coach, and general manager.
The Dallas Mavericks came in third, only behind the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs.
Though many Mavericks’ fans may not like how the roster has taken shape since winning it all during the 2011 season, it’s tough to argue that the Mark Cuban, Don Nelson, and Rick Carlisle are not at the top of their respective positions.
After allowing the likes of Tyson Chandler, Caron Butler, J.J Barea, Jason Terry, and Jason Kidd walk, the Mavericks (44-30) have retooled with Monta Ellis, Jose Calderon, and Samuel Dalembert this season in an effort to make another playoff push.
