It’s natural to reflect on all the good and bad things that happened when one year ends and another begins. We all decide ourselves whether the year was one to remember or if it was one we can’t wait to forget.
2011 was easily a memorable year for Mavs fans, as it was one that brought the team’s first title and immense adoration for Dirk Nowitzki. The Mavericks were media darlings, and they were champions.
2012, meanwhile, is a year we’d rather not discuss. The Mavericks were swept in the playoffs and the roster was disassembled and reassembled twice over. A certain celebrity husband struggled in Dallas, Dirk got hurt, and Deron Williams chose Brooklyn.
