The Dallas Mavericks are official “All in” for this season. Trading for Rajon Rondo ensures that. The Mavericks decided to make one more move to try and get over the hump. Will they succeed? We will find out. However, it is worth noting that their defence has been improved with Rondo in the lineup. The nifty point guard is an upgrade over anyone the Mavs had before him the past two seasons. For Dallas, winning the division could go a long way in their hunt for a title. Winning the division ensures they have home court advantage in the first round of the playoffs at least. Sadly, for Dallas, the South West is one of the toughest in the NBA right now. Their most important games left in the season are mostly against division rivals.
