Will our big three that we were supposed to be building upon end up like the Big 3 Dallas had at one time with Kidd/Mashburn/Jackson?
It took Dallas getting what, a new owner, don nelson and Dirk Nowitski to really turn things around? How many years was that after they traded those guys?Originally posted by <b>basghetti80</b>!
What I found interesting about the 3 trades is they really did not get great stuff for the 3 guys. Other than getting Finley and Cassell(who they later traded) in the Kidd trade they did not get much value. Fans should realize this may happen with our 3 C's as well. Dallas needed to rid of the 3 guys so they could go in another direction. Sure worked well for them, why can't it happen here?
Because Dallas stupidly traded them before they developed together. You put a couple decent big men with that squad and they would have been a force still today.Originally posted by <b>unBULLievable</b>!
Yeah..the J-Unit...too much talent but still one of the worst teams of the league
Dude, did you ever read on what was going on there? I'm not sure it's comparable to what's going on here, but those guys all hated each other's guts. And they were losing like crazy to boot. I dunno... I don't think those guys were ever going to work. It's too much to expect a bunch of kids to overcome expectations like thatOriginally posted by <b>RetroDreams</b>!

The ballyhooed three J's - Jackson, Mashburn and Kidd - were on the cover of the Mavericks' media guide the past two years. They're all gone now.
``This team needs leaders and none of them was willing to accept that responsibility,'' veteran guard Derek Harper said. ``All they saw was losing, losing, losing. That was frustrating for them.''
and also, until our guys show to be half as productive as those guys were.Originally posted by <b>Jim Ian</b>!
Until they start stealing each others girlfriends and trying to fight one another, the situations don't have much in common really.
