The acquisition of Kyrie Irving by the Dallas Mavericks is going about as well as the Brooklyn Nets would have guessed.

He generates plenty of interesting.

Interesting is one of those words that should apply to join the Four Letter Word Club. It all depends on how you say it.

“The Dallas Mavericks with Kyrie Irving are ... interesting.”

For instance, Kyrie had a fan ejected in the Mavs game at Charlotte on Sunday. That’s interesting.

For the second time in as many games, the Mavericks lost to Michael Jordan’s Charlotte Hornets, 110-104. That’s interesting.


The season is over. That’s interesting.

With the NBA’s regular season down to less than 10 games, the Mavericks are all-in to achieve something not interesting as much as pathetic.

Even with “Luka Irving” on the same team, the Mavs may miss the playoffs and thus would be the NBA’s Most Disappointing Team this season. This should go down as the most disappointing season in Mavs history.

The roster is ish, Doncic admitted this week he’s not having any fun and that he has a lot going on in his personal life; the addition of Kyrie has generated interest, but not wins.
