While the Dallas Mavericks can get a lot of buckets with a duo of Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving running the show, the team hasn’t done a good job in winning a lot of games.

It’s been an underwhelming stretch for the Mavericks. Instead of becoming a legitimate contender, the Mavs have dropped to 11th in the Western Conference and are sliding out of the playoff picture more and more.

This has apparently led to the Mavericks contemplating to wave the white flag and shut down Kyrie Irving and Luka Doncic for the rest of the season, mainly to protect their draft pick.

The Mavericks’ pick is top 10 protected, otherwise it would fall into the hands of the New York Knicks.


“I think the Mavericks have to seriously look at whether you shut down Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving these last 3 games of the regular season…

…I’m told the organization is seriously considering the possibly of shutting down [Luka Doncic, Kyrie Irving]. They have a top-10 protected pick. So being out of the play-in race, it behooves them not to try to keep their pick.”
