    NBA Finals: Mavs/Heat

    I care about the NBA Finals. But I don't think anyone else does.

    Mavs up 1-0. They look just too athletic for the Heat. Shaq is running on fumes. Wade gets too banged up.

    The Heat will win a couple games in Miami where the refs give them every call. But I don't see them winning it. Too bad, I like Shaq.

    Dirk is tempting fate by getting a haircut after his killer 50 points in the last Mavs/Suns game.

    Mav's in 6.

    The "Italian" (that's what Shaq-Fu called him) goes down.

    Re: NBA Finals: Mavs/Heat

    I'm loving this postseason because I'm a Mavs fan. They came oh so close to getting to the Finals in the late '80's but could never get past the Lakers. The '90's were embarrasing but since Mark Cuban became the owner he has turned the Mavs into a first class organization.

    The Mavs are too deep, too fast and too athletic for the Heat. Mavs in 6.

    Watch out for a HUGE game from Dirk in game 2.

    I stopped caring about and watching this year's playoffs after the Mavs upset the Spurs in the semifinal round. The Mavs are a more balanced team and stronger defensively than any team in the East. If nobody from the Mavs sits out a game for any reason, I'll say Mavs in 5.

    That Spurs/Mavs series was a classic and worthy of the conference finals.

    Overall, the NBA playoffs have just been stellar this year.

    I'm not really paying much attention but it's nice to see 2 teams who have never been before fighting it out
    Go Gators!

    My attitude about the NBA has pretty much been "Who Cares" for a long time. I just don't like the style of basketball that they play. Glorified street ball.
    Talent is God Given: be humble.
    Fame is man given: be thankful.
    Conceit is self given: be careful.

    Apparently you haven't watched recently. I was turned off to the NBA in general until a couple of years ago. The play has gotten a lot better.

    'Tis true. I didn't watch the NBA from ~1987-2002. During that time, many teams in the league apparently discovered the value of defense.

    I agree whole heartedly. The best TEAMS have won the last few series, too. This year has been fun.

    I agree totally. You should really give it another shot Randy. With all the rule changes about hand checking, etc., they've really opened up the game and made it much more enjoyable.

    Heck, they even call travelling and palming the ball now.

    Re: NBA Finals: Mavs/Heat

    I have spent three of the last four weeks in Dallas on business.

    I've liked the Mavs for a while - since the Nash days. I love Mark Cuban.

    And after being in the middle of the frenzy for those weeks, I am really pulling for the Mavs now.

    I almost brought creek jr a Dirk jersey home. So glad I didn't!! (see the Roethlisberger thread for the reason why)
    Will trade this space for a #1 starter.
