One step forward, two steps back. Dallas entered this week with a chance to reclaim control of the highly competitive Southwest Division; instead they've lost 3 of their last 4 games and are hanging on to the West's 8 seed by a Dirk Novitzki fly-away. If the Mavericks expect to snap out of their championship hangover, Lamar Odom's got to recover from his post Laker-breakup. Dude's proving that it's hard to shoot with a broken heart. Forgive but don't forget Lamar, keep your head up. —Sean Evans
