The Mavericks have collapsed to the point where they look basically on an even footing with a 9-37 Lakers team. Deron Williams is never going to be anything and Dirk is at the end of his rope. Parsons is trash and Wesley Matthews is terrible. JJ Barea is the guy stepping up as the go to man for the Mavs, and this is a lot of money poured into this team instead of trading pieces and tanking. That was the smart decision, now it's going to be a rough go for the Mavericks for a long time.
