One year removed from an NBA title, the Dallas Mavericks stumbled into the playoffs just six games over .500 and were promptly handed a first-round exit by the Oklahoma City Thunder. Jason Kidd, Jason Terry and Dirk Nowitzki are no longer capable of playing with the young guns of the league, and in the next few years, we should begin to see drastic changes with this team.
Dallas, it's time to begin breaking it down and building it back up again. The end of an era is rapidly approaching for the Mavericks. Without Vince Carter, Kidd, Nowitzki and Terry, the starting five for this team would be Brendan Haywood, Shawn Marion (who also lacks the skill set he once had), Delonte West, Rodrigue Beaubois and Brandan Wright. Similar to Orlando, this team needs help quickly.
