I saw Lebron before the game and asked him to break a dollar. He only gave me $.75 in return. I asked him for the rest and he said," I don't have a fourth quarter."

I know, even with the 3-2 edge, I still think it's 50-50 odds.

Yeah, it's really where the series should be given the 2-3-2 format.  I know it's easier said than done, but the Heat just needs to hold at home to be champs.

For the record, I HATE the 2-3-2 format.  2-2-1-1-1 is much better IMO.

Ah but the travel is so much more expensive.   ::)  At least that's the rationale they used for switching.  We can pay players tens of millions of dollars but need to find ways to reduce travel costs.  Right. 

And I'm dearly hoping Dallas can find a way to win, but expect Miami to win.

So do most Dallas fans.  This team has been so good for so long and has had so many playoff melt downs... not to mention blowing the 2-0 lead to this very franchise 5 years ago.  Mavs fans have a damaged psyche.  They could be up by 20 with 2 minutes to go on Sunday and I bet most of them would still expect to lose.

This is their best shot, I think they know this, and I think they'll play their asses off in game 6.  If they don't win, I think they'll be deflated enough to lose game 7 too.

Most pleased am I.  And it's not like Miami isn't going to win a championship with this group.  I am just damn happy they didn't pull it off this year.   8)

Victory for the good guys for once.  It's been a while.

Congrats to the Mavs and their fans.  Great team there in Dallas.
Here's hoping there's no lockout.  Too much momentum in the League right now.  It would be a shame to lose it.

Couldn't agree more.  Miami is too good... too many players will want to go there.  They'll have depth before too long and will probably start winning championships.

But if they had to go through the only team that I ever even mildly cared about, in their first go around, after what happened 5 years ago, I'd have probably stopped watching basketball all together.

Finally!  Rings for Kidd and Dirk!

Maybe next year LBJ.  How many times have we said that now?

Wow, that one's disturbingly good.

I hate basketball, but for some reason I was really happy about Dallas winning this.

It's almost a prerequisite to dislike Cleveland to live here... Seriously, I think you have to sign something before you buy a home even, but yet I felt good for them too, in all this.

I've basically been raised as a Spurs fan but I hopped on the Mavs bandwagon for the Playoffs. Glad to see guys like Dirk and Kidd finally win the big one. Yo'd think this will put an end to the ridiculous "LEBRON IS THE NEXT MJ!" debate but we'll be hearing the same thing in the fall... if there is even an NBA season next year.

How is this for irony.  The year Dirk and Kidd win is the year that Mark Cuban decides he is going to break tradition and perhaps not award rings.

I can't find a link but it is was mentioned on the news this AM on the local Fox Channel.

Not sure what the weather is going to be or if there is traffic, heck this is the only thing to knock American Idol news off the top of every broadcast.
