Well it is that time of the season again and with the playoff time that has just about kicked off in the “Western Conference”, it’s important that you stay updated with your favorite players and the happenings around the league as betting on basketball take one very important thing, knowledge.


If you have been loyal to the game you would then know that every year the Mavericks always play a full 48 minutes of hard fought basketball and in turn award their fans with a punched out opponent. So will this be any different this year, NBA odds are unsure. Taking into consideration the Western Conference is filled with a range of playoff teams each with 50+ wins, it is seen that the Mavericks went gone over the hill to do an improvement of their abilities; this has been noticed with the team being redone and upgraded. Howard and Gooden have been traded away for Caron Butler and Brandon Haywood.


There have been more points averaged than what Josh Howard averaged with the fantabulous entry of Butler, while it has been noticed that Haywood has contributed to becoming the motivating factor on defensive gaming techniques for the spirit of the team, so lets take the big-man who is the younger one of the lot and just averaging under Gooden’s point totals, nevertheless scored more rebounds than him, plays better at blocks and the critics are of the opinion that involving him was a good move which will now only bring on success and fortune to the game and the team members at large for the team of Dallas in the coming years.


Jason Kidd is at the starting line and is with the league now for a very long time; on the other hand we have off the bench names like Caron Butler, Shawn Marion, and Erick Dampler and Dirk Nowitzki. However for Mavericks would be Tim Thomas, has a reputation of 9 seasons in which he has been associated with seven teams. He is known for his lazy attitude which led him out of the team. It was in the beginning of 2010 whilst Thomas was not regularly heard or seen of and no where on the Mavericks roster was he to be seen and rumors went abuzz of a clash between him and the Mavs that led to cut ties with him. Well baseless as it was Thomas was actually quiet and not as the media said making a ruckus in their locker room, nor was there a clash between him and the team. The young player was away to attend to his ailing wife and to quote Thomas who clearly stated that he was out and away taking care of his better half and hence had to sacrifice many a games with the team. Now that is one dude I would love to meet for sure, someone who stands up against the tide and knows his head from his shoulders and yet swims the tardiest of waters to be a successful survivor at the end of it all. Nevertheless irrespective of whether Thomas is in the team or not , San Antonio Spurs have to be extremely cautious when it comes to playing with the Mavericks since they probably will be one hell of a team to defeat , namely with the passion and aggression each of the Maverick’s have with respect to winning the game.


Now it is important to the San Antonio Spurs and L.A. Lakers to make and have a combination and collaboration to win 7 of NBA Championships from a total of 10 if they aim at keeping the game spirit on track, which by all means is not an impossible feat for the two. The Spurs just as in the case of the Mavericks, are known for the talented scouts it owns and hence are a tough to tackle with the playoff around the corner.


Manu Ginobilli, Tim Duncan, and Tony Parker are well known players on whichever team in basketball much more than the likes of a Kobe, Gasol or Melo and Billups. The only comparison that I can make here is Garnett, Pierce and Allen. This is going to be a war of a series and a great one to place your NBA bet on at www.sportsbook.com
