GM PP3 walks into the press conference alongside new head coach Rick Carlisle, Shaquille O'Neal and Jason Richardson
GM: Hello and welcome to all the media members and fans watching this presser. I'm joined alongside our fantastic new head coach Rick Carlisle as well as new franchise centerpiece Shaquille O'Neal and team veteran Jason Richardson. We made a difficult but necessary decision to send fan favorites Dirk Nowitzki and Shawn Marion away to Los Angeles in favor of acquiring Shaquille. We wish them the best in LA. We were also fortunate to acquire 2 young role players in Matt Carroll and Matt Bonner in the late first and second round of the draft and we're confident they will bud into their support roles rather well. We were also fortunate to acquire 3 key free agents this offseason in the form of Morris Peterson, Anthony Carter, and William Avery. With that last statement I turn the mic over to Coach Carlisle.
Rick Carlisle: As you all know we just finished up with training camp and we are excited where our team is headed. For starters our team captains will be the two gentlemen to my left...

My staff and I believe with the time and effort we put in and the players exuding that same type of dedication we can make some significant strides this season and put a winning product out on the floor night in and night out.
