It is still a long shot to imagine Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard and Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul leaving their respective teams to join an aging Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks.

However, with both Howard and Paul gone from the 2013 NBA playoffs after just one round, at least some seeds of hope are being planted in the minds of Dallas fans and faithful.

Both players would have to give up an extra $30 million to leave their respective LA teams to join Dallas for one less year on their contracts, thus one less year in guaranteed money.

The one thing the Mavs can sell, especially head coach Rick Carlisle and owner Mark Cuban, is continued championship culture, chemistry within the roster, and sacrifice of its main star, Dirk, to let younger guys run the show.

Two very long months must go by before the Mavs can make their final pitches to their free agent targets, but their is definitely more hope than there was two weeks ago.
