Mavericks After Dark: Three “Million to One” Predictions
Dallas Mavericks, NBA Champions
As far as unlikely goes, this may be an example you hear in the general public. But, the Mavericks really have put together a more solid team than people are willing to give them credit for. That in itself will surprise plenty of people.
Of course when you see teams like the Golden State Warriors, San Antonio Spurs, and Cleveland Cavaliers, it is much easier to write off the Mavs. People tend to forget that the Mavericks were written off in every series leading up to their lone NBA title as well.
Look, I’m not saying the Mavs are frontrunners by any means and could easily struggle to make the playoffs at all. But if this team puts it together and really hits their stride, good things could come out of it.
