The Mavericks have pulled off another doozy of a deal. With Peja Stojakovic in their midst, the Dallas Mavericks now boast four All-Stars, each at the peak of their careers, and ready to bring them a title.
With a young Dirk Nowitzki teaming up with a still-in-his-prime Jason Kidd, a player who can bend the laws of gravity in Shawn Marion teaming up with Peja, the Mavs are a shoo-in for the title.
Wait, what? You say it's not 2003?
Here in 2011, the acquisition of Peja by the Mavericks is only notable for the shenanigans that the NBA is choosing. After all, this will be Peja's third team this year, and it didn't sound like many other contenders were beating down his door.
So you'll pardon me if I don't start planning the victory parade. Not yet, at least.
