Miami wins in 5. Meanwhile, I ponder how to teach my nephew the merits of team play and not being a selfish jerk, as he watches LeBron parade around with a trophy.

It would be true poetic justice if the Heat lost in the finals to a team led by a superstar that stayed with them through thick and thing.

BUT, I hate to say this...Miami in six

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.

I pains me to say this, but I think it will be Miami in 6. I expect the Heat to get the favorable calls. Stern would rather re-hire Tim Donaghy than hand the Larry O'Brien Trophy to Cuban.

After seeing that game last night, and with word of Dirk's injury, a sweep seems inevitable.

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.

I'd love for this to be the loss that unravels Miami, but they'll be game for those middle three in Dallas. I'm ready to see this go 6 or 7.

A lot was being made of Wade's 3-pointer that put Miami up 15 and how Wade was milking the moment, but really, Miami acting like a bunch of arrogant pricks is barely even news at this point.

I enjoyed watching the Dallas fans watching the scoreboard broadcast.

I've lucked into two great finals moments this week with this and Vancouver winning Game One with a goal with 18 seconds left.

I don't know if I'm supposed to be writing about the on-going NBA Playoffs here or not.

But I have to say that I've had enough with this "team that has won game x wins y out of z times" nonsense.

The first I really heard about it was before game 3.


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...
