Skip Bayless Doesn’t Have High Hopes For One NBA Duo

Skip Bayless discussed the future of the Dallas Mavericks on Thursday's edition of Undisputed. The Mavericks have failed to reach their potential this season. Many believed the team would be one of the top in the West after adding Kyrie Irving. However, the Mavericks have not been anything close to a top team. As the team continues to push for a late playoff run, many have been discussing their future. Bayless doesn't see much of a future for the team if they keep Irving and Doncic together.

Mavericks owner Mark Cuban mentioned on Wednesday that the team's top priority is to re-sign Irving this summer. Irving has been phenomenal in his stint with the Mavericks. The issue in Dallas has been the team's performance on the defensive end. The defensive issue has been no secret. Doncic himself has even mentioned that he needs to be better on that end. However, what will change between now and next season? Bayless is of the belief that nothing will change. As well as believing that the issue isn't because of a lack of talent.

Skip Bayless Believes Mavericks Stars Don't Fit

Bayless commended the Dallas duo for their unbelievable talent on the floor. However, the sports media giant doesn't see how the two fit together. Chemistry seems to be the glaring issue between Doncic and Irving. The two stars have the talent to compete with anyone. But who gets the ball in crunch time? That could be the heart of the matter. Both players are amazing talents when it comes to running the offense. However, only one man can run the show.

The Mavericks seem set on what their summer plans will be. The team will be looking to bring back both Irving and Doncic. However, will both stars be okay with that decision? Both have seemed to be visibly upset on the court. As questions of Doncic's leadership and Irvings off, the court issues have reared their ugly heads. Can the franchise see success while keeping both Doncic and Irving? Please give us your thoughts on the topic in the comment section below.
