Eight games. Five of them against playoff teams. One of them on national TV. Big fun with OKC. A b2b roadie. Way too much Pacers. Oh, and something else …
No plans for local TV (no, I do not know why), no picture of what is happening with about half of the roster, no communication with the team and its players, no chance for Mavs fans to bask in the glory of a title, no real communication between CBA negotiators on either side … just lots of "paperwork preparation'' for a scheduled 2011-12 regular-season tip on Nov. 1 against Chicago. … and lots of whistling.
