    Is Brendan Haywood Already the Best Mavericks' Center Ever?

    Still the best?​No, but he's close. Not that the Washington Wizard-turned-Maverick hasn't played impressively in his first four games in Dallas (10.8 points, 8.8 rebounds), but it says more about our sad history than his play, doesn't it?
