The other day, I called O.J. Mayo the "Most Improved of the 1/4-Way of the Season" Player (an award that I am sure he's going to put on his trophy shelf right next to his draft day picture). However, as a I pointed out, I highly doubt that Mayo will actually be the deserving winner of this award at year's end.
So, I'm putting my money where my mouth is. I just gave Jae Crowder a 4-year, $61 million dollar contract. He's my highest paid player.
The other day I did the ten worst contracts of the season. It was a fairly big hit, and as usual, not everyone agreed with my picks. I expect more of the same today, as I pick the ten best.
The dust has (almost) settled on the 2012 offseason. I think it's time for us to look at the best and worst contracts of this season. It seems like every year, several teams are looking to unload "bad" contracts. We often forget that teams weren't just magically saddled with those bad contracts; somebody volunteered to pay them.
The NBA Season is ready to start on Christmas Day, the last couple of preseason games are being played as I write this up, and it's time for me to cater to every serious NBA fans love of season previews! The 2011 Geektastic Preview is going to be way too large for one article, so I'm dividing it up into divisions (and even so, it's going to be long, so get a cup of coffee!). I'm continuing the preview here with the Southwest Division, from worst to first.

In this article I'm going to preview the Dallas Mavericks, who are still going to be a powerful team despite losing Tyson Chandler.
I'm calling them guesses, not predictions, because this way if I'm completely wrong, I won't look as stupid.
