Dallas Mavericks Awards: Thanks For Participating

It’s awards time! Sadly, not a single Dallas Mavericks’ player earned any of the end of season honors, but that doesn’t mean we can’t hand out our very own.

Previous Awards: 6th Man | ROY | Best Acquisition | Worst | DPOY

Just like youth sports, there are no losers here. We hand out our participation awards to those Mavs who didn’t exactly light it up this season.

Ace Feltman (@MFFeLtman): Wayne Ellington I was really, really excited about this signing. The Mavericks hadn’t had a reliable three point threat to stretch the floor in a couple seasons (sorry Anthony Morrow) and when I heard they signed one, I was ecstatic. Then the player turned out to be Wayne Ellington, and I curbed my enthusiasm but still was excited about the prospects of Ellington giving the Mavs a very solid 8 PPG in 15 MPG or so. Instead we were teased with flashes of what he could bring. (Roddy B – who went unsigned all season – could have been great…I could get a girlfriend way out of my league…none of these things are coming true…yet) Ultimately left with a turrible turrible turrible 3 PPG in 9 MPG. The best part about Wayne Ellington this year was Jae Crowder.

Brian Gosset (@Gosset41): Gal Mekel/Wayne Ellington I’ll meet Bailey and Ace halfway. Ellington played a lot to make a difference, yet he didn’t. I thought he’d make more shots, but didn’t come through. I’m with Bailey on Mekel. When he plays, he pushes Larkin’s playing time back a notch.

Bailey Rogers (@BRogers789): Gal Mekel. He participated for a few games right? In my mind, Mekel is both a roadblock to Shane’s progress and a reminder of how stupid it was to let Calathes go. If only he wasn’t so pretty…

Jose De Leon (@JoseOfLion06): Wayne Ellington Without question the most disappointing addition. He was supposed to come in and make a three here and there. He rarely did. He was supposed to come in and…and…all he was supposed to do was be a threat on the perimeter and HE WASN’T! I like what he theoretically brings to the table and sure hope he’s at least remotely reliable next season.

Rami Michail (@RamiMichail): Bernard James. Can’t leave the Sarge out! He deserves some mention in these awards.

Who deserves the participation award?
