So we had our first preseason game this past Tuesday at home and I honestly could say, I was crazy hyped. We have great fans in Dallas and it has been a long time since I have been this excited about basketball.
That being said, it was a foul fest. I think a lot of players were still in preseason form and still trying to shake the rust off. I shot the ball pretty decent but still felt like I didn’t play as well as I should. And even though it's preseason, I still wanted that win. I gotta do a better job of being in the right position defensively and on the rebounds. A couple of mishaps on my end. Just need to play smarter.
Overall, and realizing the Big German (Dirk) didn’t play, this team has really good chemistry. We still need to work...like I said we have a lot of new players, but this is a good clique, we ALL get along so well, great vibe. That is what the preseason is all about...getting used to each other, shaking the rust off, and getting better. I know by the time the regular season kicks-off, we will be a much better team.
In the meantime, I am giving away preseason tickets so follow me on Twitter @CVBelieve and if you can answer some of my random trivia and I'll give you my tix! One last thing, I truly appreciate everyone's support and best wishes. The future is exciting. Mavs Nation!
