As much as I was hoping that the Chicago Bulls will somehow pull off an upset and win the Eastern Conference Title, it was not meant to be. In the end it was Lebron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh that prevailed.
So, its going to be the Dallas Mavericks and the Miami Heat for the NBA Finals. The last time that these two teams met was during the 2006 NBA Finals, with the Heat winning the trophy. At that time, the Mavs lead with 2 wins at their home court before the Heat took 4 straight wins to win the series. For the Mavs, they had Dirk Nowitzki, Jason Terry, and Jerry Stackhouse to lead the team while the Heat had the combination of Dwayne Wade and Shaquille O’Neal.
For these year, Dirk still lead the Mavs… with Jason Kidd, Jason Terry and Tyson Chandler. While the Heat still has Wade, only this time he is with James and Bosh. This will be a match-up between two former MVP players. Among the All-Star players, only Wade has ever won a ring. This match is between who really wants it the most.
So who’s your bet, Dallas or Miami? Me, I’m sticking with Dirk and the Mavericks. I think its his time to win a championship ring.
