The Dallas Mavericks have the uncanny knack of making us dream big and then breaking our hearts. Not this season though. No way. This is the year we shake off our Heat/Warriors hangover and watch Dirk Nowitzki begin to play like the big man he really is. Heya man can dream, can't he? All true believers should unite and watch our boys play their last game of the pre-season. The Mavs take on Big Ben and the Chicago Bulls 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at the American Airlines Center.
