Cubes talks to (or, more likely, trades e-mails with) Dallas Blog’s Mike Fisher about a variety of topics. OK, just three, really: Kevin Garnett, his interest in buying the Chicago Cubs, and the Round 1 playoff exit that was treated in my house like a death in the family. The most interesting bit, and Fisher helpfully highlights it, is this:
Think about this: With Dirk, Josh, JET and Devin, and either ‘Gana or Dampier at center, we’ve got a starting five that has four of the five guys at All-Star or near-All-Star level. That’s a good team.
Now, I’m just about the biggest Mavs homer around, and even I would tap the brakes before going that far. A good team? Absolutely. But four of the five guys at or near All-Star level? Did he count Dirk twice? I don’t think I can endorse that sort of unbridled enthusiasm. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go stare at the glow-in-the-dark towel I picked up during the 2006 Finals for about three hours.
