Last night, after a game 6 victory in Miami, the Dallas Mavericks were crowned 2011 NBA Champions after a phenomenal playoff run. Personally, I really didn’t favor any team. I was a little relieved The Big 3: Cop-Out Edition didn’t work, but ultimatey I really had no emotional stakes invested this year. I am happy Dirk and JKidd got their rings though and stayed off the best-who-never-won-it list with Chuck, ‘Nique, Stockton, Malone and them.
Jet Terry was unreal this game and just the hungriest player ont he floor. You don’t ink the Larry O-Brien Trophy on your arm and not throw down everything to get one. Bron and Wade were non-existent when the time came for them to show up and take over.
Dirk Nowitzki on the other hand struggled in the first half and shook it off in the 2nd to show why he is one of the all-time greats. Now that he has a ring tied to his name, it’s easy for people to see how great and unique of a player he is. His skillset as a 7-footer is insane and he can always find ways to score and hit timely shots. A true MVP.
