“It is tempting to go with one of Dallas’ new defensive studs in Harrison Barnes or Andrew Bogut, but I think Wesley Matthews will be the Mavericks DPOY. As Matthews leaves his achilles injury farther in the past, he will only get better. Not only will he have an increased offensive presence this season, he will improve on his very good defensive game last year and become a true lock-down defender. With the two former Warriors to take some of the pressure off of Matthews, he will be able to have an even bigger impact.”
