Lets Talk Mavs #MFFL
USA TODAY Sports

Going in to the 2010-11 season we were worried. Our team was aging. We had hoped to turn Eric Dampiers non- guaranteed last contract year into a big name Free Agent. We went after every Sign & Trade you could think of that would have in impact. Nothing was happening. Finally I read that trade discussions between Charlotte and I forget who for Tyson Chandler had broken down. I made the call to the Bobcats in hope of getting Tyson. Everyone else had pretty much given up on Tyson because of his injury history. Our trainer Casey Smith told me that Ty had a great summer with USA Basketball, our support staff thought he could play out the last year on his contract. So we made the trade. The thought was that Tyson would back up newly resigned Brendan Haywood. Wood had played well for us the year before. But by the time the regular season opened our starting lineup would be JKidd, JET, Caron Butler, Dirk and Tyson.
