Rick Reilly: Mavs will underachieve, again

ESPN.com columnist Rick Reilly thinks he's charted exactly how the NBA playoffs are going to go down. Here's what he thinks is going to happen to the Mavericks, and what he dreamed was going to happen to the Mavericks.

Portland Trail Blazers vs. Dallas Mavericks -- What do Oasis, Winona Ryder and the Mavericks have in common? They're massive underachievers. When Dallas loses this one, it'll be four first-round punch-outs in the last five playoffs. Portland in 7, and let's see if anybody in Dallas has the nerve to call out Mark Cuban, cyberbully.

Did I dream that? In attempting to break an attendance record, Cuban gets arrested by the Dallas Fire Department for using Jerry Jones' temporary Super Bowl seats.
