The Dallas Mavericks are world champions.
They have definitely celebrated accordingly, but it's been more than a week, and now they must turn their attention to free agency and the NBA Draft. With Tyson Chandler, Jose Juan Barea and four other key players becoming free agents this summer, Dallas has a lot of decisions to make.
Each of its six free agents helped in its quest for a championship (except Caron Butler, but he was a key to their hot start at the beginning of the season), and now they must be weighed for their pros and cons.
How will Dallas make unbiased decisions on these players who the fan base fell in love with this season?
What's going to happen with sniper Peja Stojakovic? How about one of their emotional leaders and Finals hero, DeShawn Stevenson? Where does "The Custodian," Brian Cardinal, fit in?
With the lockout looming, players are anxious to find work. The Mavericks need to make these moves soon.
Otherwise, desperate teams are going to throw big money at these guys, and it might be too late.
