Mavs-Cavs game chat, starting around 8pm ET.

Thoughts on Juwan Howard? I think he'll probably be a good addition. However, we had to get rid of one of my favorite players in order to get him. Mbenga, in my opinion, had a great upside and was really starting to develop. It is a sad day in the Hufstedler household.

I love how cool Juwan Howard is. He’s the kind of guy who can commit an awful flagrant foul, then look up just kind of say, “my bad,” and the other guy takes it in stride.

Two thoughts from the first quarter:

(1) The refs aren’t calling anything, which I kind of like as a nod toward the old days, at least from what I’ve heard.

(2) So far Avery is giving playing time to guys like JJ Barea and Brandon Bass. That might just be a trial thing since it’s the first game (plus Josh Howard, Erick Dampier, and Devean George will be back before long), but I hope Johnson stays committed to keeping down the minutes for Nowitzki, Stackhouse, Josh Howard, and Terry.

It’s true that Dirk deserves a lot of blame for the playoffs last year, but it’s also significant that in March, he was going for 20 points, 12 rebounds, and 7 assists on a regular basis, and in May it was more like 20/7/3. You have to suspect that he wore down.

Looks like this is going to be a laugher. A much better start to the season than last year. Do we even need Josh Howard? ;)

I'm back from trick or treating. The grandparents love little Vader.

Playing against this Cavs team could make anyone look good. Brandon Bass and Trenton Hassell might not be quite as good as they look.

Hmm, Dallas wins in a blowout, and Dirk still plays one minute over his average for last year.
