Breaking: Superstar Point Guard Returns To The Dallas Mavericks


The Dallas Mavericks took a huge step back last season as they missed the playoffs for the first time since star Guard Luka Doncic's rookie campaign, and while it's easy to blame the acquisition of Kyrie Irving on this downfall, the two have the potential to be great alongside each other.

Many Mavericks fans would have been taken aback over the past few days then when pending free agent Irving was reportedly talking to several teams, but today, the team officially announced that the controversial guard is back, signing a three-year, $126 million contract.

Irving has a player option in the third-season of the deal, and after averaging 27.0 PPG in 60 games between Brooklyn and Dallas last year, if the team can put the right pieces around this star back court, there's no reason why they can't leap back into the playoffs.
