      This series we are taking on the Dallas Mavericks. I really like this match-up for our team. This is not a very good defensive team. They have some solid defensive post players, but that won't affect us very much. Almost every other player we have a big mismatch with. Howard won't be a very big factor defensively because our offense doesnt run through the center, and the offense we are running will get him out of the paint.

      Our plan on offense is to attack with our greatest strength and their greatest weakness, perimeter play. A lot of our offensive game plan this series will be to spread the floor, and run isolations with Deron Williams and Kevin Durant. This will get all 4 other players to clear out around the perimeter, getting Dwight out of the paint. This gives Deron a one on one match-up with Jose Calderon, who is a piss poor defensive player. I mean seriously, he is worse than a wet paper bag out there. By giving Deron all the space he needs and just Calderon to deal with, he should absolutely dominate. If the Mavs decide to pack the paint, or double Deron, we will introduce them to Kevin Durant, the best scorer in the NBA, who will make them pay for that. We also have 3 point shooters OJ Mayo, Mo Williams, and Marco Bellineli on the perimeter, who will explode if they pack the paint. Either way, we should be able to score with ease the entire series, as they will either pack the paint and have Kevin Durant, OJ Mayo, Mo Williams and Marco Bellineli explode or they will play on will play tight on the shooters and Deron will dominate Calderon all series.

      Defensively, the only player that should be able to hurt us consistently is Dwight Howard. So, we will front Dwight with the 7 footer Jason Smith, who will get to start this series. His extra length over Howard combined with back side help should shut him down. Tristan Thompson will have back side help as he doesnt need to worry about Taj Gibson. This should make it very hard for Dwight to get the ball, and reduce his touches to near minimal. Having the athletic Nerlens Noel come off the bench to front or help on the back end when Smith is in should make it even harder. He is great on back side help because he can out jump a lot of guys, and block shots really well. A perfect mix for that spot. This defense puts it in Jose Calderon, Eric Gordon, and Harrison Barnes hands to outscore Deron Williams, Kevin Durant, OJ Mayo, Tristan Thompson, Mo Williams, and Marco Bellineli. I don't think the Mavs can do that. Thats why you should vote for my team. Thank you

      Rotation:
      PG: Deron Williams (35) / Mo Williams (13)
      SG: OJ Mayo (29) / Bellineli (13) / Mo Williams (6)
      SF: Durant (36) / Salmons (12)
      PF: Thompson (30) / Noel (17) / Jason Smith (1)
      C: Jason Smith (28) / Dalembert (16) / Noel (4)

      Note: One of Noel or Smith will always be in to front Dwight. If Dwight isn't in that is when Smith and Noel will rest.
      If they are both in, Noel will have back side help.
      Dalembert will not see any minutes with Dwight on the floor. Dalembert and Thompson will also both be back end guys. They will never be in together, unless Dwight is out.

      A vote for the Mavs is a vote for Dwight Howard's enormous dick, Eric Gordon's slightly less enormous dick, Harrison Barnes' probably enormous dick, and Jose Calderon's sexy Spanish dick.

      Also spacing and defense and pick and roll and tightened rotation and attacking their front court and being physical with Durant and stuff.

        Ugh, not voting for anyone right now. Like the Mavs better based on the rosters, but why the **** wouldn't you submit a writeup.

          Not voting yet, but Noel has got to be the most useless pick in this entire thing.

              I understand I picked him way too early, but he certainly a good defender off the bench. Blocks shots, disrupts the offense

                Going with footsy. 2nd best player in basketball, top notch PG, and a small ball lineup that can be Rockets-esque in terms of shooting.

                  I'll take exception to that one.

                    Is Deron Williams not one of the best PG's in the NBA?

                      There's a chance he doesn't play until December, or maybe even after that. The Sixers are tanking like nobody's business, so you never know. This is a projection, after all, and I don't see him doing really anything his first season.

                        So Ive voted for every team that is losing I guess.

                        Williams and Durant will have good games, but not as good as Howard's. Plus he just have overall better complimentary pieces.
