Barkley sings Mavs praises

Charles Barkley is on the bandwagon. It’s true. Well, that’s not exactly shocking news for those who have kept tabs on Round Mound this season.

The Chuckster is down with the team that may be the hottest in the Western Conference right now. The playoffs suddenly look more inviting after wins over Golden State, Phoenix and Utah.

“The one team that I think puts fear in the bottom of your heart is the Dallas Mavericks, that’s a team you don’t want to see,” Barkley said on TNT last night. “I’m buying Dallas for the simple fact that even when they were losing all those games they went down to the buzzer. Jason Kidd can keep them in the game for 3 ½ quarters and then Dirk needs to be the MVP with the game on the line.”

Nowitzki sure was last night with 32 points and that heart-stopping buzzer-beating 3-pointer to beat the Jazz.
