This is officially the only sport I care about. Anyone else in to it?

I just saw the Mavericks triumph over the Lakers and I'm pumped. After a fair amount of beer, I'm not very sleepy.... I just love this game. I love the playoffs!

I think I might check out the Finals, if only to root hard against the Heat and their big budget big three, including former Raptor Chris Bosh. The Heat cannot be allowed to win the title after stacking their team the way they did. I was really hoping someone might have knocked off the most hated team in hoops before this, but it's now down to the Mavs. Game One Tuesday May 31st 9pm Eastern. On TSN in Canada.

Well after game 1, dear Lala, I don't think the poor Mavericks have much of a chance against the double threat of LeBron James and Dwayne Wade...........plus Bosh.

Nowitski and Kidd are really going to have to elevate their game against this dynamic duo.Even the announcers were calling James and Wade, Batman and Robin, although they couldn't seem to decide which was Batman and which was Robin. 4 straight Heat. At least that's the way it looks to me now. Sucks.

I'm nowhere close to despair about this.

The Miami Heat is a talented team, and I knew we weren't going to win against them easily, but I think the team had a good strategy. For some reason they just didn't sink enough baskets. I think part of that was dumb luck, and part of that was being fazed by a team that has a lot going for them.

The Heat may have more raw talent, but our team has a good deal of experience, and a really well playing bench. The bench just wasn't doing their normal scoring in game 1.

I think things will go a lot differently tonight. We shall see.

And even if the Heat do end up winning the series, there is no way they are going to win 4 straight, especially not after it comes back here to Dallas for games 3-5.

And we welcome you "Anyone but the Heat" fans, but we also have a bit more faith in the Mavs ;-)

laugh Imust confess to being an anyone but the Heat fan, especially seeing as Chris Bosh, the ex-Raptor hotshot is now a Heat hotshot, although in Miami he's a distant third on the totem pole whereas here he was #1 and knew it. LaLa you could be right about the Mavs and their bench and home court. I haven't spent much time watching either team this year. Dirk is a force, no doubt about that but I'm hardpressed to imagine a better 1-2 than James and Wade.These two push the ball up the court in tandem, like a couple of field generals.

Very happy to say "I told you so" :D

The more I learn about Lebron, the more I dislike him. I really used to like him...Great player, young, charming...

He just seems so narcissistic the more I learn about him, though. Especially in contrast to someone like Dirk, who is a superstar, but seems like the most humble guy in the world.

LeBron I think is public enemy number #1 in Cleveland and I can tell you Bosh isn't loved in Toronto.
Neither left their original NBA cities with much class.
I really hope the Mavs bury this bling bling bling team of prima donnas.

:( Not happy right now....
I still have hope, though. The toughest part will be winning another one back in Miami...
But we did it once already. We can do it again.

I've never followed basketball closely, but I can't help but cheer against the Heat. If the Mavs win the NBA championship and the Canucks win the Stanley Cup, I'll be happy!

The thing about this for me right now is this: Jason Kidd deserves a ring. He's been a consistent player for years when it comes to assists, and he's out there working hard every game. He's 38 years old. He isn't likely to get many more chances, and this may be his last. Dirk deserves one just as well, but his career is far from over.

The Miami Heat with Lebron, Bosh, and Wade are very likely to win a championship if they stay together for a few years. I would be surprised if they didn't. I don't begrudge them that - It just doesn't need to happen now. They don't need to be congratulated for their pre season celebrations as if they had already won. They need to learn that it takes experience and dedication to win a championship, not just throwing a bunch of super stars together. I think that's what the Mavericks represent, and I think that's why they have so many supporters in these Finals.

I'd be quite happy if the Heat never won a championship with their 3 studs. Its more fun to root for underdogs against favourites. That's why I never under any circumstances root for the Yankees. In fact, a bonus about a baseball powerhouse like that making the post season virtually every year, is that I always have someone to root against, otherwise I am usually indifferent to who wins, even though I watch most of the games.From a Toronto perspective cheering against both Vince Carter and Bosh is practically mandatory to keep one's citizenship in good order.

The Mavericks have made believers of us all. I guess the Heat, like myself and others were convinced of their own invincibility after Game 1. Hope its all done Sunday night.

I stopped following the NBA long ago, but I did see Lebron James whining at a press conference about everyone wanting him to fail.

And fail he did. Looks good on him!lala your faith in the Mavericks is to be commended. As the record shows I gave up on them and conceded the series to the hated Heat after watching game 1.The Mavs clearly rebounded with both talent and character to win 4 of the next 5 games. Bravo! Dallas is a pretty good pro-sports town. The Cowboys have a long Super Bowl winning tradition. Even the Dallas Stars hockey won the Stanley Cup in 1999 and now the Mavericks are champions. And the Texas Rangers from nearby Arlington won the American League pennant last year and went to the World Series. Go Big D :cheers:

Haha, yes, it is a very good time to be a Dallasite right now.

If only the Cowboys would start winning....If we even get a NFL season!

Lebron James just continues to astound me:

Lebron James wrote:
The Greater Man upstairs know when it's my time. Right now isn't the time.

When I went into this series, I didn't want him to win a championship against the Mavs, but I conceded that he probably would, and deserved to win, a championship in his career.

No longer.

I hope God, whom he claims "knows when it's his time" will show him that his time in NEVER. So cocky, I just can't believe it. To contrast that with the class acts all of the Mavericks have been....He just looks worse and worse all the time.

This is called the "Blame it on God excuse"
Hopefully God will misplace his watch and LeBron will still be waiting in his rocking chair.

I dont mind that he hopes that his destiny is to win one day. At least he's not blaming his team-mates.

There is that, but when it's God's fault, not even D-Wade or CB4 can do much to help.
