dallas mavericks is texas’ third nba team after san antonio spurs and houston rockets, which entered nba as a result of the 1980 expansion. It has a green and white blue logo and jersey. it is briefly called mavs. It is a failed franchise compared to other Texas teams, but it can be said that this team, which once won the nba championship and made many playoffs, is a relatively good franchise in NBA. They did not start well like every expansion set, but as a result of the drafting success, they overcame the creep process faster than the other expansion teams.
After kiki vandeweghe was selected from the dallas draft in 80 and did not want to play dallas in return for two draft rights (one with the blackman mentioned below, the other with sam perkins at 84, then sam perkins would be selected in 84) after being sent from the team, mark aguirre in the 1st place in the 81 draft and 9. they chose ordinary rolando blackman. These two picks pushed the team up, both in the short and long term. They may not be called top players from a defensive point of view, but they were very scorers. aguirre was a short forward who had been a scorer for nba in the 80s. Until the 88-89 season, Dallas would serve with an average of 20-30 (usually around 25) points. which, in this period, would be all-star 3 times and contribute in terms of rebound-assists. After a short period of unstoppable performance in European basketball, Blackman, as you remember from Stefanel Milano, would give a steady performance in dallas up to 92, with an average of around 20 points per season and would be an all-star 4 times. He was a solid mid-range shooter in years when the middle was at the premium.
Under the leadership of these two players, dallas’ performance went up season by season and they finally saw the playoffs at 83-84.
They would go into the playoffs every season until the 90s with the exception of 88-89 and even see the conference finale at 87-88.
As an expansion team, they achieved this success without much delay, as well as the blackman and aguirre elections, as well as the positive draft selections from the top in the following years (due to their low win rates in the first years) (they only made a very bad selection in 82, otherwise they were not bad at all – to 96. The norm sonju, who has been the team’s GM as much, deserves an applause) and the positive proponents would also play a role. Again in 1981, the long striker Jay Vincent and point guard Brad Davis, which they selected from the 24th rank, would contribute to the team for a few years. The derek harper they chose at 83 will turn into a franchise legend, and for years, he was a tight guy and played 2 balls per game – he was also in the defensive team of the year two times) and his assists side (he was one of the best assists of the period in nba. – which he also had score contribution) would become a sort of cult point guard in nba (but it was also an elimination in slack, this slow pace was reflected in team play). In 83, they chose branch ellis, the three-player of the years when the three was not in demand, and would be one of the strong shooters of nba afterwards, if not in dallas. In 84 you could give a trotter title like the brook Lopez of the period, but he also made great contributions to the 6th man in his nba career (he was in this role in the 90s sonics who played the championship), the pivot sam perkins with the ability to shoot, the three-pointer German detlef Schrempf (which he was going to give his main performance in other teams) was removed from NBA for heavy drug use at 86, in fact, just after he got the sixth man of the year and started showing a positive performance in his 20s and you remember from greek basketball (aris, iraqis and he played in olympiacos, even in aris in a european cup final i remember he threw efes pilsen like a cotton ball in the final match – now I see that the game that actually ended 50-48 with 19 points 18 rebounds, sacrifice to my memory.) long roy tarpley; Although he started his career at Cleveland in the same year, they drafted names such as Mark Price, originally selected by Dallas. Although they made pitch-black choices between 87-91, some of the successful choices they made between these 81-86 led the franchise in those years. These are the years when the west was the west … portland, lakers of legends …
In short, dallas saw playoffs every year, despite his high offensive abilities, the game that wouldn’t be tried very quickly, and his relatively weak defensive abilities. they even made the biggest breakthrough in the “prime” periods and pushed the lakers until the last game in the western finals. the squad of the period – harper -blackman-aguirre- perkins-donaldson five and sixth man tarpley, again schrempf in reserves. here is the name we haven’t mentioned before james donaldson; In fact, it is a center like every other team that plays to the championship and is not a star tall. but not exactly what you would call digging; He is a rim protector, who contributed rebounds and blocks even though he did not contribute to the score, even went on an all-star at that time, and spent 7 seasons in Dallas.
