MMPG: Team of the Weak
An overtime victory over the New York Knicks couldn't completely stop what had been a miserable week for the Mavericks -- a week that became more troubling this morning when brash, billionaire team owner Mark Cuban was charged with insider trading. Cuban has denied any wrongdoing, but the Mavericks have been doing plenty wrong on the floor this season. Losses to Denver, both Los Angeles teams, Chicago and Orlando put them at a season-long five-game losing streak -- the longest since Cuban took over in 2000.
At 3-7, Dallas is off to its worst start since the 1993-94 team that went 13-69. These Mavericks aren't that bad. But didn't they just win 67 games two seasons ago? Making matters worse, Dallas has to watch Devin Harris explode in New Jersey, scoring at least 30 points in consecutive wins over the Hawks. Somewhere, Avery Johnson is smiling.
