The Pick & Roll has reached the midseason point.
Ben Rogers and Jeff "Skin" Wade agree that the Mavs' strong defensive identity after the departure of Tyson Chandler is a credit to the system.
But this team is still about offense. Veterans such as Vince Carter and Shawn Marion have been surprising contributors, but as always Dirk Nowitzki is putting the Mavs on his back -- after his career was declared over by none other than Charles Barkley.
Also, can you imagine if Jason Kidd had spent his entire career in Dallas? Who would be the greatest Maverick of all time if he would've been paired with Dirk from the start?
