Roundtable: Most Likely Maverick to…Make it to All-Star Weekend
By Kohl Rast
The Dallas Mavericks are winning games right now and things are starting to really look up. For that reason, we here at The Smoking Cuban decided to do a roundtable series about the most likely Mavericks to reach certain achievements or milestones, starting with making it to All-Star Weekend.
The All-Star Weekend always seems to be an entertaining one, consisting of a number of great competitions, including the three-point shootout, the dunk contest, and the big game on Sunday. This season’s All-Star weekend will be held in Los Angeles, CA from February 16th-19th.
The Dallas Mavericks are hoping to have a representative at this All-Star weekend. After a poor performance last year in the three-point shootout by Wesley Matthews, the Mavs are looking to put a true contender in one of the contests over that weekend in February.
Although the NBA is always trying to make All-Star Weekend more exciting each and every year, there are three events that most people look forward to. Dallas has players that could compete well in all three, but will any of them get a chance to attend?
It is hard to say for sure what will happen just yet and, with the Mavs early season woes still pressing down on them, there is a chance that not a single player will be there to represent the Mavs. We are going to stay optimistic with our picks though. Here are the staff picks for the most likely player to represent the Mavericks at All-Star weekend.
