Dallas, Texas. A city famous for its cultural history: opera, ballet, and musicals. But most importantly, the Dallas Mavericks.

Porzingis was released from the Knicks midway throw the last campaign and was quickly picked up by the Mavericks. After recovering from a long-term injury, he has quickly picked up where he left off, putting up big numbers night upon night.

You would expect this role to be occupied by Mavericks GOAT Dirk Notwitski, however as Dirk doesn’t have a tradeable card currently, it’s Porzingis who is charged with the task.

C - Tyson Chandler (OVR 89)

Card type: Spotlight

Best stats: 95 stamina, 95 standing dunk, 94 offensive rebound

Cost: 2.5k

The final name in this All-Star Mavericks five is current Houston Rockets center, Tyson Chandler.

Chandler has spent time at a number of different NBA teams, but it was during his year in Dallas that he picked up his only NBA Championship (2011). 

Chandler will be tasked with dominating the paint in this side. With a 95-rated standing dunk and a 94-rated offensive rebound, he shouldn’t have too many problems doing exactly that.
