NBA's best D lineup: Brendan Haywood and bunch of old dudes?

That's what this season's stats say, and TrueHoop's Kevin Arnovitz does an excellent job of breaking down how the lineup of Brendan Haywood, Dirk Nowitzki, Shawn Marion, Vince Carter and Jason Kidd operates so well.

Of course, it's irrelevant for tonight's game against the Lakers, when Haywood will sit with a sprained right knee and Marion's status is iffy. But it's still a must-read for Mavs fans.
