The reason why Best SIGNED with Dallas

The Dallas Mavericks can thank Bobbie Best for helping them land their new backup point guard.

Her son, Travis, was having second thoughts about taking a one-year deal with Dallas for the veteran minimum of just under $1 million. Detroit and Indiana both called asking him to hold off, and Best started thinking he could get more money from one of the other clubs.

His mother wouldn't hear of it.

Despite never having weighed in on any of his basketball decisions -- from going to Georgia Tech to recent talks with the Boston Celtics, close to her home in Springfield, Mass. -- she broke her silence with a phone call that woke Best up early Wednesday.

"Travis, the good Lord has opened up a path for you to go to the team that you've wanted to go to all along," she told him. "Don't let money steer you in the wrong direction. The last two years, you've really been unhappy where you've been. This is a situation where you can be happy."

In the background, Best heard his sister Darlene chime in, too, saying, "Yeah! Yeah!"

When Best hung up with his mother, he called his agent, Forrest King. They got in touch with the Mavericks and finalized everything over dinner Thursday night.

Man, it's all a conspiracy against the Lakers. Peepz nowadays get their parents helping them to go to teams like San Antonio, Sactown and Dallas in order to stop the Lakers. What's next? Stepania going to Dallas because his agent told him to? Oh, lo'. What's the NBA come to nowadays? :shootc:

dude i was jus thinkin the SAME thing! Why is it that every team is powering up IN THE WEST to go to war with the lakers?! I mean C'MON it was subtle at first with sprewell cassell and kandi man goin to Minny, but then it became obvious when San Antonio got Horry, Mercer, Turk, Rasho and SAC gettin B Miller(well that kinda DECREASED their chances) and the mavs gettin Antawn and CO. and NOW best coulda gotten more money and he goes to dallas? God damn the NBA!

Its gonna be fun watchin the NBA next year tho! its the NBA vs the Lakers!
