Dallas Mavericks: The Harrison Barnes dilemma

A common fallacy in sports today is the belief that losing more games than you win is doom upon a franchise, that this scenario is the mark of death, per say. No, the mark of death upon a franchise is not the day it loses 50 or more games, the mark of death of a franchise is the day it refuses to accept 50 losses, and decides to wage it’s entire future on a very unproven and unpopular...
