Roundtable: Who Will Be the Mavericks 6th Man of the Year
Every great NBA team has had a few things in common. A starting lineup that can get things done, and a bench that is put together to allow the starters the break they need to keep the team running. Who will be the key player coming off the bench for Dallas?
The Dallas Mavericks have been known in the past to be a high scoring team with a strong bench that can come in the game and hold their own. No Mavericks team in history made that more clear than the 2011 Dallas Mavericks that won the title.
This year, the Mavs may not have the veteran backups and firepower that the championship team had, but they do have some young, capable players on the bench ready to come out and play hard every night.
One of the biggest weaknesses to the Mavs teams over the last few years have been depth issues. Carlisle has had to work some magic and overplay some of his starters to keep the winning tradition but it hasn’t been easy. This year should make his job a little bit simpler.
With that being said, here are our staff picks for this year’s 6th Man of the Year for the Dallas Mavericks.
