The Mavericks will not ask the Pacers for compensation despite Carlisle resigning with two years remaining on his contract, sources said. Cuban did not want to complicate Carlisle’s search for a new coaching opportunity. “He is a trusted friend and a basketball soulmate,” Carlisle said of Cuban. “You occasionally come across people that change your life, and he changed my life, and he changed my family’s lives. It’s very difficult to come up with a simple statement to thank somebody for the 13 years that I’ve had with him. “I just have an amazing amount of gratitude to the city of Dallas, the Mavericks organization, all the players and coaches that I’ve had an opportunity to work with. Dirk, J-Kidd, [Jason Terry], Luka, Tyson [Chandler], Shawn Marion, J.J. Barea — there’s just so many. It would be very emotional to just try to express all the feelings that I have about it.”
Corey Brewer: “So for us, it was like ‘alright, they’re disrespecting us. And you gotta realize, we had a lot of great players on that team. We had Shawn Marion, Dirk Nowitzki, Jason Kidd, Jason Terry, DeShawn Stevenson, Brandon Haywood. We had Tyson Chandler, the big anchor back there. We had a good team, so we felt disrespected and I think that’s what we took into the Finals. If you’re going to disrespect us, we’re going to show you that we’re not to be disrespected.”
Nowitzki: I think the whole thing was kind of surreal, to get to this point and to try to understand what we had just accomplished for ourselves. And for this organization that’s never won a championship. There’s a great photo with me and Tyson [Chandler], we both have our hands on heads — sort of in disbelief and sort of relieved, I think, is the word. And there’s a picture of me hugging Jet [Jason Terry], which is really emotional because of what me and Jet had been through over his time here in Dallas.
