Mavericks vs. Heat. A rematch of what is considered the worst officiated series in the history of the NBA Finals. Is anyone watching?

Hell no. I'm in Dallas where Mavericks fever is white hot and the bandwagoners are out in full force. Do I care? No. I don't like basketball and I'm not about to start watching now.

Is Dallas a nice city? I haven't been following the sport as much this season as I did in previous seasons so I'm not sure how much of the series I'll watch. Dirk hasn't won a Championship and he's more likeable than Lebron, so I have to pull for Dallas.

Depends on what you mean by "nice". <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> But yeah, pull for Dallas...we like it when people like us. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> Mostly cos people seem to hate Dallas.

Great win. Dirk had a reputation of playing poorly in the clutch after losing to Golden State a few seasons ago, but it sure seems like he comes through in the clutch more often than most other superstars.

I rarely pull for a Western team and when I do it looks like they may lose. Dallas definitely has to win the next two games. I'm hoping for a 7-game series.

Which team do you normally root for during the regular season?</div>
</div>
<br>
The Celtics. Larry Bird was my hero when I was little and I've stuck with them. Anyways, Scottie Pippen never should have opened his mouth until after this series. Wade has clearly been the best player on Miami this series thus far. At this point I question whether he's even the best player on his team. Pippen looks foolish for claiming Lebron's the greatest player of all time. Just another retired player who gets the spotlight on himself for making a foolish c omment.

I think your Celtics made a crucial mistake in trading away Perkins and Robinson. They lost inside toughness and spark off the bench, in my opinion.</div>
</div>
<br>
I don't think they could afford Perkins for the extension he wanted. They are getting older, so it may be time for some trades next season. As long as the Lakers are getting older at the same time, I'm not going to complain too much. I think it'll be many years before either team touches a Championship again.

Congratulations to the Mavericks and their fans(loyal ones, anyways). I had read in the paper with the lockout coming there are many owners who are looking for changes. One of them may mean Miami will have to break up their trio. Does anyone know how this would work? Which of the three would they have to get rid of? Would other teams have to break up their stars?

I'm so glad this is over. Being in southern Florida, people have been babbling about basketball for months now, and I just don't care. I like playing basketball, and I'll sometimes follow college basketball, especially when one or both of my schools are having a good year, but I've never followed the NBA.<br><br>
