Dallas Mavericks goal for the 2022-23 season: 1. Win championship
It is not championship or bust for the Mavericks, but it is the logical next step after reaching the conference finals last season. No team is going to set their goal of reaching the NBA Finals because when they get that closer, everyone wants to finish the job.
Is this goal realistic? If the Mavs have a top-five defense and the best offensive creator in the NBA in Luka Doncic, why can’t they win it all? They do not have the prototypical championship roster, but Dallas has skilled role players around a future inner-circle Hall of Famer. They were seven wins away from a title last season, and the Mavericks believe they can take that next step this season.
Every contender sets their goal of winning a championship, and only one team gets to do it. The Mavs should not look at the season as a failure if they fall short of this goal. Winning a title is insanely hard and takes a few fortunate bounces. Will they go the Mavericks' way? All fans can do is tune in to find out.
Supporters should be excited about the Dallas Mavericks at the start of the 2022-23 season. They have one of the best players in the league, who just keeps getting better, and the Mavs promise to be competitive and exciting this year. Will they accomplish their goals? Let us all enjoy finding out.
