Will Mark Cuban’s decision to not bring back the 2011 championship team be as costly as Jerry Jones letting Jimmy Johnson go after they won their second straight Super Bowl?
I believe it was a mistake for Mark Cuban to not bring back Tyson Chandler and J.J. Barea, but I don’t think it is nearly as costly as it was for Jerry to let Jimmy go.
The Dallas Cowboys were thought of as one of the favorites in the NFL to win the title in the early 1990’s whereas the Dallas Mavericks were thought of as a team that could make a run in the playoffs but no one really believed they could win it all.
The Cowboys’ roster was full of stars and they were led by superstars in “The Triplets” in Troy Aikman, Michael Irvin and Emmett Smith. The Mavs only had one superstar in Dirk Nowitzki. Jason Kidd is a hall of famer but he is clearly past his prime. The Mavs had a roster full of players who just couldn’t get over the hump.
