Analysis:
The Mavericks finished the season with the best record in the league at 67-15. Throughout the year they were the most feared team in the NBA. They went into the post season with the No. 1 seed in the West but fell short in the first round to Golden State, 4-2. Don Nelson, the Mavericks former head coach, led the No. 8 seeded Warriors. The Warriors were the only team to go 3-0 against the Mavs in the regular season. Despite the early exit, Dirk Nowitzki was named Most Valuable Player for the 2006-07 season.

    From The Media:
    "It doesn't matter whether Mark Cuban or Donnie Nelson makes the phone call, but one of them needs to contact Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak today and find out what it takes to get Kobe Bryant."
