So, what's worse?

The Mavericks cock teased us again. After a lights out, fan confidence boosting regular season, the Mavericks ran into the Spurs and were dumped unceremoniously on their asses. The "silver lining"? Hey, that's the 10th straight 50 win season and playoff run for the Dallas Mavericks!

But is that a good thing? I mean, what would you rather have? Consistent winning and contendership, that leads to heartbreak or championships with losing droughts in between? (I'm not counting Yankee types where payroll allows the ability to purchase rosters and always contend AND win nor am I counting perennial losers like the Rangers who can't do a god damn thing)

On one hand, you're never the laughing stock of the league, you're always "in the hunt" and in the conversation for best team in the league. You attract season ticket holders and have consistent sell outs. Free agents want to come play because they could be "that last piece".

On the other hand, you've got the rings.

On one hand, you're seen as a constant tease that inevitably leads to heartbreak. You always raise people up, only to bring them down.

On the other hand, you've got the rings.

So...who's got it better (or worse)?

Mavericks fans? Eagles fans? Dodgers fans?


Celtics fans? Cowboys fans? Angels fans?
