I'm a casual follower so can someone tell me: is Dirk just wasting everyone's time? I'm not big on sentiment in sport, does he deserve a spot on the roster?

I just want to double check that you are calling the Warriors out for referee favoritism in a game Mavs won the free throw count 28-16 and the Warriors had 23 fouls called on them vs 14 on the Mavs.

smh
Should have seen them against us, you couldn't breathe on Luka without fouling him

Ayton 16/8 and 3 blocks at half time.
He's really coming into his own. You can already tell his development is going to be one that will be interesting to follow.

I will say though, it always surprises me how soft he attacks the rim. Not that it's a necessarily bad thing, but there's a sort of gracefulness to it rather than just flat out aggression like most bigs tend to.

He looks cooked, but I'm sure even having him just around in practices must be good for the team. He doesn't seem to have an ego and seems happy to just be a 5-10 minute player.

Find me a more improved player in the league than Buddy Hield and I’ll eat my hat! He’s become a fourth quarter specialist.

Three’s made: 106 (ranked 3rd)
Three point shooting percentage: 44% (ranked 14th)

Averaging 20.3 points and 5.2 rebounds per game.

With Bagley to come back soon and the Kings needing to find a decent forward there’s plenty of room for improvement.
