    An ugly win is much better than an ugly loss. 2-2 with one game left in Dallas.

    At this point if the heat win the series, wade is the mvp and lbj rode his coat tails to a championship.

    Still lots of series left for him to prove he is the team leader like Jordan and not the wingman like Pippen.

    Only 1 basketball to go around and he was just being a team player last night by scoring 8 points.

    I had a feeling that the Mavs would make this interesting...but I also think the Heat are going to slaughter them tonight.

    I hope Wade had a talk with LeBron yesterday or today.... LeBron's play in the finals, especially in the 4th when it matters, just ain't cutting it...

    Re: NBA Finals

    Lebron is shitting the bed in these Finals. Came up small in the Fourth Quarter again last night. If Wade hadn't been epic, this series would've been long over.

    Yeah, he's certainly better than Jordan.

    Re: NBA Finals

    The old triple double choke huh? I thought Lebron played a good game, but when dallas is shooting the ball like that they are tough too beat. The problem is that mike biiby is liabilty on defense and chalmers cant handle the rock, forcing lebron to run the point so as soon as hes crossing half court hes getting doubled forcing him to pass. As far as wade is concerned, he is benifiting from the lebron double team. Wade may be playing good this series but if not for lebron in the first 2 series they might not even be here. Did anyone else watch Dwade in the chicago series he was awful!!!

    He scored 2 points and had 4 assists in the 4th quarter. LBJ already had his 15 points and needed those 4 assists to get his triple double. He wasnt sleeping, he was just making sure he had his triple double to quiet the naysayers.

    If you gave LBJ a dollar and asked for change he would only give you 3 quarters, the 4th quarter would be missing....

    Re: NBA Finals

    Stat wise and overall LBJ didnt play bad. He had a triple double! But he does need to step up and hit some big shots down the stretch. He has a lot of pressure on him right now and he has to learn to deal with it and play ball. I'm not ready to label him a choke artist or anything like that because he hasn't hit every clutch shot he has taken. LBJ is a HUGE reason they are even in the finals and I WILL NOT place all the blame on him for losing 2 games in a row like that.

    A big complaint I have is the Heats defense as a whole. It needs to improve in my opinion.

    Ok LeBron. Time to take over and show everyone you can be clutch. Win or face a year of ridicule.

    No, Lebron shouldn't get the blame for the Heat losing, but maybe it's about time we come to grips with the idea that's it's premature to call him the greatest. Lebron's a great player, but it's premature to call him the next Jordan when he's been underwhelming in his second Finals appearance. Like I said, Wade has been giving his all and will probably be named his second MVP if the Heat win it.

    If Lebron is the next Jordan, he steps up his game and doesn't stop playing after thirty minutes.

    Yeah I agree. I have never called LeBron the next Jordan or tried to say he is better then Jordan. I think Jordan is the greatest player ever so you may never hear me say LBJ is greater then Jordan..even if for some reason he gets remotely close to that level.

    Game 7 Mavs up by 12 so far.

    It's the fourth quarter, and time is running out. The Heat better wake up and soon.

    This game is over. LeBron went missing long before the 4th quarter...(mainly because he just got in)

    Wade just dribbled the ball right off his foot...WTF?? These guys are falling apart BIG TIME.

    The Heat looked flat footed at the end, but this has been a very good championship. The Mavs have won this simply by out playing the heat when they needed to. Congratulations Mavs. Wish I was home to party with you.

    I wonder what LBJ's excuse will be now that he can't blame the low level of talent in his teammates?

    Miami could have won if they made their free throws, that was awful FT shooting...

    Then Dirk would just make his open shots, and cancel out the FTs.

    Yep that could have let the Mavs win by 25.

    Can't look at "ifs"

    Was hoping for the Heat to win, but now I'm glad the Mavs did. IDK this was a strange finals for me...

    Re: NBA Finals

    I just think this was a very good series, by the two best teams. Both teams played very well at times and not so well at others. I'm glad Dallas won, but the Heat would have made a very good champion if it had fallen that way. Congratulations to the Heat for a good year, as for the Mavs,,,,, rip up the town guys, just leave my house intact.

    Congrats to the Mavs for winning and getting their first NBA title in team history. Dirk deserves to be MVP and this is just another building block into a HOF career.

    Heh, there is justice in the world. They start out the year acting like they already had the championship wrapped up, then finish by getting their asses handed to them on their own floor. Couldn't happen to a more deserving bunch of guys.
