‘Twas Brillig, and the Slithy Toves…

A footnote on the Shawn Marion acquisition was added acquisition of center Nathan Jawai, fondly dubbed by one Matt Moore as the Jawaibberwocky.  There was some issue with the availability of Memphis-bound Quincy Douby, so Jawai was sent to Dallas in order to balance the incoming and outgoing contracts for Toronto.

While we should all beware the Jawaibberwocky, the jaws that bite, the claws that catch, he could very well be off the team by season’s start.  Or perhaps the Mavs favor his guaranteed money to the added cost of re-signing Ryan Hollins.  Regardless, Jawai looks to be a relative non-factor buried deep in the rotation behind the Mavs now relatively crowded frontcourt.
