The roller-coaster ride that was the Dallas Mavericks' season has come to an end.
After their victory over the New Orleans Hornets, the Mavs close out the year right where they started it, with a .500 record.
41-41 was not good enough to keep the Mavericks' 12-year playoff streak going, but it did continue their streak of not having a losing record, something the team has avoided every year since 2000.
Although the Mavs closed out the season on a high note, playing their best basketball of the season over the last month, it was still a disappointing year for a team that had expectations of being in the postseason once the year began.
One thing we know for sure is that the Mavericks will not sit idly by in the offseason and that Mark Cuban and Donnie Nelson will do everything in their power to try and improve the team.
With that being said, there are obvious issues with the team that must be addressed if the Mavs want to be contenders next season.
