“It’s nothing like they tried to make it seem. They took it all out of perspective, all out of context,” Van Exel said. “I had played with it before and it was never loaded before … I didn’t know and once I found out, it was too late.”
This leaves Mavs fans with two questions: How bad do they want Ricky Rubio or Frank Ntilikina? And, if so, how likely are they to acquire them?

Dirk and Duncan, two franchise icons. They played over 100 times, won 6 total championships, and have 3 MVPs between them. Their once great rivalry is fitting to their equally successful careers.
So few players spend their entire career with one organization. The longer their career lasts, the more likely it becomes time for a change. For Dirk, that change has all been able to take place within the organization.
Good things do not always happen to those who wait, but when it comes to 41, there is no better example of loyalty paying off.
You might feel like Stephen Curry is the leagues humble superstar, but you would be wrong. Steph is cocky and talented and he knows it. You might think he is an underdog, but he expects to be here. He just wont say it. Steph has all the confidence in the world. You can see it every time he runs down the court while his shot is still in the air or when he pumps up the crowd after making a big 3. You might think Steph is cute and nice, but he is as big and bad as point guards come and it is fun to watch.

My totally awful preseason NBA predictions. Man, I should stick to football.
