Being originally from NE Ohio, I was as upset as anybody when he left. However, I don't think it's accurate to characterize his play as selfish, if anything he has been criticized for not being selfish enough, especially at the end of games.
In fact he realized that he needed a better team to win. I hope Dallas wins but now that Miami has figure out how to play as a cohesive unit, I don't see it.

holy shit what just happened
I would say the entire city of Miami just made the dirty pants, but that would imply they were watching.
Good thing Jason Terry was having a good shooting night before his colossal brain fart. Just the same, he probably owes Dirk dinner tomorrow night.
Never before have I celebrated jump shots before they went in. I've feared them, from the likes of Ray Allen and Reggie Miller and JJ Redick (in college), but never celebrated. Then I started cheering for 2011 Dirk. HE'S AUTOMAGICAL.
The winner of Game 3 has won the title 11 times. All 11 times.
And then he basically calls Erik Spoelstra an idiot for not buying into the fact that game 3 is the end all and be all.
What happened with that? Miami won game 3. Congratulations, Miami. But Dallas responds to win both game 4 and game 5 (at home, so it's not like it should be a major surprise), and what's the ESPN summary saying?
Originally posted by http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/recap?gameId=310609006 Chris Bosh had 19 points and 10 rebounds for the Heat, who get the final two games at home with history against them as they try to win a title in their first season together: In the 26 previous finals that were tied 2-2, the Game 5 winner won 19 of them.
News flash to sports writers: The team that just won a game to pull ahead in the series is going to win more often than not because THEY ARE NOW AHEAD IN THE SERIES. There's nothing special about any one game, except that it puts you closer to winning 4 games before your opponent can do so, which is the point.
These kind of statistics are lazy sportswriting as well as the worst kind of cherry-picking. Rant over.

I'm a lifelong Heat fan, by default I'm happy to see my grandpa's team winning...
but 1. Kidd deserves a ring 2. Wade-Lebron are going to get a ring, it doesnt have to be immediately when Lebron signs with Miami. It can (will?) be next year so I'm fine with my prediction happening which is Mavs in 7
You know who I like in the Heat? Mario Chalmers. This series has made me a big Chalmers fan. Im from Miami though...
