We’re not saying whether Dallas will or won’t shake hands with the POTUS at the end of the season, but we will say that as defending champs, they are the only team in line for the feat and until eliminated, they are still one of the favorites. The Mavericks are a reflection of how you view things. The optimist will look at the Mavs roster and see a championship-forged squad featuring Finals MVP Dirk Nowitzki that reloaded with hungry and capable vets in Lamar Odom, Vince Carter and Delonte West. The glass-half-empty guy sees an aging core that replaced a defensive and spiritual void left behind with Tyson Chandler’s departure with some ill-fitting used parts. Regardless of which camp you fall under, the Mavs still wear the crown until someone takes it from them in a seven game series.—#2
