Nowitzki now has Finals MVP trophy to go with his '07 regular season award
LaBron was minus 24 in the title game. Dirk scored 61 points in the
fourth quarter in 6 games. More than Wade and James combined.
the Mavs took the series by beating Miami at home ! GO Mavs ! thers a BIG party
going on in cleveland oh yeah one more thing. Lebron who ? I love the outcome
of this series
@ patriot | 12:04 p.m. June 13, 2011 His name is Kobe - not Colby.
Watch B-ball much?
Wade is a champion and he plays like one. He won the NBA title in 06 and Olympic
Gold a couple years later. In the Gold Medal game it was Wade that carried the
US to victory. Wade , like other greats - is a true star. He doesn't shrink in
the moment. James on the other hand DOES shrink in the moment. James played like
a JV player the entire finals series and at times looked terrified in being
called on to even take a shot. Very weird indeed. James doesn't have the heart
of a champ like Wade and Colby and Michael and Magic and Larry. Something is
missing with Labron James. James a good player - a great physical specimen - but
somehow the metal toughness isn't there...yet. James also has to develop his
inside game - with his back to the basket. At times he just looks awkward
inside. He only 26 so has some more years to get to his prime but the time is
running out on his older teammates.
LeChoke - 18 points in 6 fourth quarters. 'nuff said.
LeBron? Been sayin'! He's not all that.However, Wade even faded.
Didn't expect that from him.Bosh, great outside shooter, but he
couldn't carry the team, either.Dirk, Barea, and Terry impressed me
the most. Clutch players!So happy to see the Miami "big 3"
couldn't rig a championship.Both of these teams showed that team
defense is way more important than one-on-one defense. Great series.
Now LeBron is tweeting that "God says it's not his time"??? This guy
just doesn't get it at all... or maybe he does get it, and God just likes Kobe
and MJ a heck of a lot more than James!
To me the Mavs were the champs when they SWEPT the Lakers. The rest has just
been icing on that wonderful cake. I really don't expect they will win another
one next season (if there is one), but this one was spectacular!! Now I get to
go through NBA basketball withdrawals.
Uncanny how the Mav's coach looks like Jim Carrey plus 10 years or so...Also, did you notice the MVP trophy looks incredibly similar to the
World Cup trophy, and awarded to a German last night!
Looks like it was the MAVERICKS who took their talents to South Beach... I hope
LeBron's and Wade's coughs get better soon, though...
I was just thrilled to see Miami, Chicago, and LA lose.
there was an article on a blog...its thescore... i think...dated dec 14
2010...on that article...the writer announced the the dallas mavericks are the
new NBA champs...why?...there was this stat that im not sure everyone is
familiar with....teams that has won 12 or more games and have that streak ended
with a lost to the milwaukee bucks ended up being champions...the 1972 lakers
the 1974 celtics the 1983 76ers and 2007 spurs...all of them had their streak of
more than 12 games broken by milwaukee...same thing happened...to the dallas
mavericks...i know its just a coincidence...but it is a cool trivia...
Happy for Dirk , J Kidd & Dallas - formula for winningSuperstar PFDefensive Cabove ave SF3 guards with different strenths &
weaknessesand role players on the bench that do anything for the
teamand most importantly - flexiable smart coaching staff
Remember that 'Miami Welcome Party' after D-Wade, Bosh and James signed? It's
officially become the funniest thing I've ever seen. You don't celebrate your
championships before you win them! It will be interesting to see what this
summer brings for Miami. I say trade off Bosh and get some depth!
Bravo to Dallas Mavs game over Congrads!
Glad to see Dirk, Jet, Kidd, Chandler, Marion, Barea etc finally get one. Dirk went form choker to a closer although he had a bad game in the
first half.I really do not like MIA so I am happy to see DAL win. On
paper they should not have. Dirk was the only star. Kidd is older than dirt. Jet
is erratic like CJ. Barea is very short. Marion and Chandler are good but not
great players. Kidd, Jet and Barea are all 6'3" or less. DAL is
not that great on paper. MIA should have swept them but the game is not played
on paper.I hope the new CBA puts an end to the 3 super star nonsense
and spreads the top talent around the league. Cuban finally bought the right
combination of depth but I hope the new CBA puts a hard cap in and prevents
buying championships also.Dirk helped the NBA in Europe big time. He
has redeemed the Euros for a while. LeBron has established a new
legacy as a 4th quarter ghost. Nice ending to a great series.Now if the Jazz can figure out how to rebuild.
Well it is good to see a true team who played team ball win it over the big
three. It goes to prove a good team with one superstar with a great coach can
win it all, over 3 superstars and some role players.This series was
all about maturity........... Players and coach, and yes even the owner kept his
mouth shut...............Miami didn't know when to shut up.
James going to go nuts for another looonnnnggggggggggggg summer dreaming when it
is his turn. Too bad! Well done Dallas sir Dirk!
Even with the free throws horrifically lop-sided in Miami's favor, Dallas
prevails! I think the only person maybe feeling dumber than LeBron James right
now is Scottie Pippen?Way to go Dirk... one of the NBA's class acts
and a heck of a player!
Oh, better go get CP3 and Dwight!
I am glad the Heat lost. Bottom line: Earn your championship. If they win next
year I will have no problem but just not this year.
To those who went right out and bought a James #6 Miami Heat jersey last summer:
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!!!!
Well, thanks to your story, I see that Dirk and his pals got the memo from King
David.Anybody know how big the bonus is for stretching it out to
game seven?I think this is the first year in probably the last 20
years that I haven't seen even a single NBA playoff game.I'm sure
I'll sooner be watching 100 pro wrestling matches.Not that the
outcome is any more in doubt, but the laughs are more frequent and a lot
With the proverbial "egg" on their face as well as their "hands
around their throats", James and Wade walked off the court thinking about
what might have been...
