The NBA is full of star duos right now, with over 15 teams boasting a pair of players that could dominate the league. Where does the Dallas Mavericks new pair land in the list?
The Dallas Mavericks put together a very exciting pair of potential stars for the upcoming season, but they were not alone in doing so. This year could very well be one of the most exciting years in NBA history, thanks to a power shift from one supremely dominant team to a group of teams that could easily win it all.
This change in strength couldn’t happen until the Golden State Warriors super team broke up, which they did really when KD tore his achilles in the NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors. As soon as that happened, the big five of Golden State was officially going to be a little smaller.
Although the league was already looking like it was going to change regardless of the injury, that one torn tendon really sent the NBA offseason into a bit of a frenzy. That frenzy resulted in really no team in the league having more than two star players. The Warriors still technically have three of their big five, but it just isn’t the same.
The Mavs were not the first team to assemble a strong pair of elite players, but they were among the first to do it prior to this season. Just before the trade deadline last year, Dallas acquire Kristaps Porzingis from New York to become Luka’s right hand man. The pair have not gotten to play together yet, but we expect big things.
In fact, I am expecting such big things that I believe the Mavs new star duo is among the best in the league. Where exactly do I have them ranked? Find out now.
