Championship Hangover?

The 2011 NBA Champion Dallas Mavericks have started the season 0-2.  They got spanked against the Heat, until they stopped trying in the fourth quarter, and even lost against a Ty Lawson-led Denver team by 22 points.  Is it possible to have a championship hangover, even with the extra 2 months before the season started?  Will they be like the Bruins and instantly go from the worst team to the best?  I don’t think so.  They lost a couple of key components from last year’s surprise championship team.  First off, they lost Tyson Chandler to the Knicks.  He was a huge defensive presence and averaged over 10 points per game an almost 7 rebounds.  They even lost some role players such as JJ Barea and Caron Butler.  They have an aging point guard in Jason Kidd who is on his way out, and he really only has one or two people to pass to now.  What do you guys think?
