I say it sucks to be Mavs fan right now because....

We saw our team fall back into its jump shooting ways and lose the Finals.

During the offseason all the talk was about continuing to pound the paint to out rebound teams and play defense first. This was what beat the Spurs and Suns in the playoffs last year.

So the first game this season sees the Mavs wilt in the second half and rely soley on jumpers after hanging with the Spurs in the first half.

The second game is a demoralizing 104-77 loss to Houston in a game where the team never tried to attack the interior.

Then the third game - the one where they hoist the Western Conference Banner - against Nellie and his Warriors is a loss because of poor shooting and decisions. To top it off Josh Howard was injured in the game.

This kind of start is not something to get excited about. Sure we may overcome it, but it's not the way ANY team in any sport wants to start out.
