The Mavericks they do not finish raising their heads. They are second to last in the Western Conference and the sixth worst team in the NBA with a 9-14 balance. They have been punished by the health protocols of the League and during several matches they have not been able to count on five decisive players in its rotation, Kristaps Porzingis missed the start of the season while recovering from an injury, Luka Doncic is not right from the triple …

All of this is translating into a disappointing season that could still be reversed by moving into the market. Is what you think Shaquille O’Neal, an analyst for the TNT network on the program ‘Inside the NBA’, although his opinion seems somewhat daring. “The Mavericks need a player who is as good as Doncic or a little better, like Bradley Beal or Russell Westbrook.”said the mythical pvot.

The reactions from the fans have not been long in coming, questioning that the two players named by Shaq are better than Doncic, considered one of the great stars of the NBA and that last season even was in the race for the MVP alongside LeBron James and winner Giannis Antetokounmpo.

In his third season in the League, the Slovenian guard is averaging 27.2 points, 8.8 rebounds and 9.4 assists. Beal, meanwhile, is the current top scorer in the NBA with 34.8 average points Y Westbrook, his partner in the Wizards, has records of 20.6 points, 9.6 rebounds and 9.5 assists per encounter.

In summer, the Mavericks put the entire squad on the market except for Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis to try to add a third star to the template. Finally it did not arrive. Maybe it’s time to move in search of a transferAlthough finding someone equal to or a little better than the Slovenian guard seems difficult.
