Can't believe after they let Steve Nash go and traded Michael Finley away two years ago, they become the team with the highest win-percentage stepping into Year 2007. They have the young legs in Josh Howard and Devin Harris to run the backcourt, which gives them a lot of energy and spark for a potent offense. They've the more and more consistent plays from Erick Dampier, which is traded from Golden State. While Dampier was in Warriors, his inconsistent plays are his major weakness. Who will have imagined he is now a major component of a championship-caliber Mavericks team which lead the team in blocks and sometimes rebounds?
Of course there is the killer instinct of Jason Terry, which cannot be compared with Steve Nash's passing skills at all. But his daggers during late games are cold-blooded and any great teams will need a guy like this to win at tight games. 6th man Jerry Stackhouse always give a spark to the team when he got off the bench. Then, the 7-foot captain Dirk Nowitzki concludes the excellent team of Dallas. His silky-smooth jumpshots, his unguardable 3-pointers, his solid rebounds, and his increasingly potent passing skills all make this team better and better.
No excuse not to be the NBA Championship this year :)
