The NBA Finals are set...your two teams in the Finals will be, the Dallas Mavericks and the Miami Heat! A rematch of the 2006 NBA Finals, which Miami won in 6 games after being down 0-2 in the series. But these two teams now...are not the same from 2006. The only thing thats the same are a few players. Dirk, Jason Terry, Udonis Haslem, and 2006 Finals MVP, Dwyane Wade. Dirk certainly seems like he has gotten rid of the label of being "soft." But, people may forget...he carried the team back in '06 to the Finals and in game 3, the Heat went on a 22-7 run to end the game. D.Wade had one of the most memorable performances EVER in NBA history. He played the final 11 minutes with 5 fouls...scored 15 points in the 4th quarter. He ended the game with 42 points, 13 rebounds...Dirk ended up with 30 points, and 7 rebounds. A lot of people kept bringing up Wade going to the foul line more than anybody in the series, but Dirk had his share as well. It might not have been as frequent, but he got there. In the game 3 debacle, he went to the line 12 times...not to mention, he missed a big free throw to tie the game. Game 4 he had 14 5 he had 5 attempts, and in game 6...the closeout game 8 attempts. My only thing is that, Dirk is a 7 foot jump shooter....he doesn't go to the block often, so why should he go to the line 20 times a game shooting jump shots?? Thats preposterous to me...I guess he's suppose to get those calls shooting jump shots every time. But, as I stated earlier...two completely different teams. New head coaches at the helm for both teams, new players, and different attitudes. This will be no easy series by any means necessary, but my pick to be the NBA CHAMPIONS in 2011 is the....MIAMI HEAT!!
