The Dallas Mavericks were one of the teams expected to be on the playoff bubble in a competitive Western Conference, but they've looked very good so far and all the new pieces have come together quickly.

Here's a look at the top 10 players on the Dallas roster with an evaluation of their performance and a report card grade based on their statistical output and how well they've fulfilled their roles compared to other players in the league.
