Could not have asked for a more satisfying ending to a great series. This is the most I have enjoyed watching the NBA since Jordan was around. Lots of great drama this year.

Gotta feel great for Kidd, Dirk, Jet, Marion, heck pretty much everyone. I love Tyson Chandler and JJ Berea's games too.

I'm even happy for Cuban, dude is the closest thing to Dan Snyder that the NBA has, so it's good to see him learn and grow. You gotta give those rings out though, come on.

Whither the Heatles? They could have won this thing with a little more determination, so it's not like they need to blow it all up. They really need a top-tier point guard though, someone who can actually control the flow of the game and run the offense. This 1-on-1 thing they try to do is not reliable.

I think they also need a seasoned veteran with at least one ring who can step in and regulate. A Charles Oakley/Ben Wallace type dude who can get in Lebron's and DWade's faces when necessary.

And how stupid was that whole coughing-on-tape schtick those 2 pulled? REAL mature fellas.  ::)

Lebron? I just don't get it. Dude is not even in the same conversation with Jordan anymore, as far as I'm concerned, or even Kobe for that matter. His disappearing act was just baffling.

If that were the case, wouldn't LeBron et al. have gone to Dallas?  Snyder is a complete ass who craps on the fans and runs the Skins like a fantasy football team.

LeBron played 40 minutes.

In the eight minutes he didn't play, Miami outscored Dallas by 14.

In the 40 minutes he played, the Mavs outscored the Heat by 24 points.

I know it's a popular sentiment nationally but that's not really an accurate view of the guy anymore. I'm a former season ticket holder and I certainly don't agree with everything Danny has done, but he is much like Cuban in his youth and obsession for winning (and tendency to rub some people the wrong way). The Skins just don't have any actual success to show for it.  ::)

I love that Cuban basically just shut up for the whole playoff run and did not allow himself to become a distraction. You know he was itching to have a go at Philip after that sweep.

What did you guys think of Lebron's postgame comments?

You mean about the haters and how he doesn't care?  I think that shows he cares.  I think that also shows that he thinks about himself a little more highly than he ought to.  Yes, people are hating on him but if he thinks that's all they're doing then he needs to shake his head.  I think the folks that are hating on him are doing just fine in most circumstances and are enjoying a situation that made LeBron look bad.  I think they, just like he, are going to go on with their lives.  Most of us have to work for a living so no, we can't spend the summer at a mansion with our posse without any financial concerns so sure, LeBron has it made.  But he's an ass for flaunting it.

Good read:

Quote
This should have made me very happy. After all, I spent the entire NBA season rooting against LeBron James and the Miami Heat. I rooted against the Heat with a joyous zeal. People often asked me why ó some lectured me about it. Thatís OK. Iím sure I can put the reasons into words if necessary. I rooted against the Heat because I was ticked off at LeBron for quitting on the Cavaliers at the end of last season. I rooted against the Heat because I was ticked off at LeBron for making a mockery of Cleveland and how much the fans there loved him. I rooted against the Heat because something about three buddies deciding to get together in an exotic locale and dominate the NBA seemed like a plot for a bad James Bond movie. I rooted against the Heat because I do not like anyone cutting in line. But the truth is, it didnít come down to reasons or words. I rooted against the Heat because it was fun. Iíve not really despised a team in a long, long time.

I grew up in the DC suburbs.  Synder has only been hands off in the past year.  Things like getting rid of Brian Mitchell so they could bring in a washed up Deon Sanders or drafting Heath Shuler are prime examples of his screw ups.  Just about everything at a Redskins game experience sucks...especially the extreme nightmare of parking, nevermind the price to park.  Synder has bought up DC radio stations so he can have complete control over broadcasts...i.e. no one can bad mouth him or the team.  The guy is nothing like Cuban, and he certainly is no Jack Kent Cooke.  He is just a rich guy with a Napoleon complex.
