    I don't like Dallas either, I don't think they are a true number one seed in the west. But I still think they'll pull this game out, I just don't believe Davis will play this well the whole game.
    Gotta give a little credit to Don Nelson.

    Re: NBA Playoffs?

    After listening to their reaction after losing in the finals last year, i decided that Dallas fans were the biggest whiners and crybabys in sports. i wonder if they're going to blame the officials for their loss to GS.

    Those fans should have been chanting "overrated" as they rushed the floor. Missed opportunity.

    I KNOW I'm not the only one who spent more time watching that SMOKIN' HOT chick in that blue shirt courtside than I did the game.

    LOL How's that prediction that Dallas would win 3 straight after winning game 3, Chuck?

    It looked like Mark Cuban threatened to slug the TNT cameraman after the game ended.

    Seriously, I have trouble focusing on a game with scenery like that so imminently viewable on nearly every play! Even now on the highlights on Inside the NBA, LOL, my eyes are drawn to the same spot on every highlight. Hahahaha.

    Don Nelson is a terrible coach, but so is Avery Johnson, IMO. I haven't watched them play much this year, but the Mavericks are one of the worst defensive teams in the NBA, I guess. I don't know how you can't beat a team that runs nothing but "spread" every time down the floor. And I love Mark Cuban, but Dirk is soft. The Mavs more handed them that one than anything.

    GS played out of their minds again, it's an amazing win for them. I still don't think they are a good team. I don't see them shooting the ball like they did in that series for an extended run in the playoffs, I guess it's possible but not likely.

    I love how Stephen Jackson and Baron Davis think they have to get up in a guy's face every time they think they are fouled somewhat hard. Grow up. And honestly the refs sent a clear message in that series: Cuss at the refs, get ejected and you'll get the calls. I in think that game and game 3 the Warriors got the benefit of most calls. But in the end the Mavs didn't show up the team, the coach nor it's super star.

    This has to be the worst post about basketball i have ever read. Why are you so bitter towards the warriors? You just called one of the greatest coaches of all time terrible. And the mavs were one of the best defensive teams all year. Why can't you give any credit to the warriors. They played great and they won.

    And BTW, terrible coaches dont get teams that havent been in the playoffs for 13 or 14 years there in their first season. Nor do they win 67 games in a season. Congratulations to avery johnson and the mavs. And Go Warriors!

    I wouldn't call Nelly a terrible coach, nor would I say the same about Avery, who is still learning on the job.

    Golden State isn't playing out of their minds, they're playing to the best of their ability. They exploited every matchup they could in the series, credit that to Nelly. They play sound defense considering they're a running team.

    And as far as the Jackson/Davis thing, it gets out of hand, but emotions run high, I would probably react similarly when I had my adrenaline going.

    Congratulations to the Mavs for what? Choking in the first round?

    Really one of the worst posts about basketball?

    I guess I shouldn't have said that Don Nelson is terrible, but I really don't think he's very good. Don Nelson has a lot of wins in a very long career, but he's done nothing in the playoffs (45&#37 with some pretty talented teams. "Ok on offense...ummm just do whatever you want" doesn't get you far in the playoffs.

    I guess all I really know about Avery Johnson is what I saw this series, and he was terrible in this series, no way getting around that.

    I'm not bitter toward the Warriors.

    Dallas may have had good defensive numbers during the season, again I haven't watched them much this year. But did you watch this series? Their defense was horrible. The Warriors had a lot of lay-ups and dunks. There was usually no weak side help when the guy guarding the ball got beat off the dribble.

    I did give the Warriors credit when I said this:
    GS played out of their minds again, it's an amazing win for them.
    Did you not read all of my terrible post? I just don't think you can keep counting on Baron Davis and Stephen Jackson to shoot as well as they did for an extended play off run.

    During the season Davis shot 30% from the 3pt line, that's bad, so bad he shouldn't even be taking 3's. During that series he shot 45% (including 3-10 in the last game, that's more like it). Did he suddenly learn how to shoot in the days between the end of the season and the series against Dallas? Probably not. He had an incredibly hot series, I don't see him keeping that up, I just don't.

    Stephen Jackson hit a lot of open 3's. He's not a good shooter either, but he'll probably continue to knock down 37-40% of open shots, that wouldn't be shocking. But there was no reason that Jackson should have been open so often. The Mavs weren't keeping Davis or anyone else from getting all the way to the basket, so why were there open shooters on the outside? Because Dallas was playing lazy defense. That's what I saw. So credit to the Warriors, because even when you're getting open shots you still have to knock them down and they did.
