The NBA finals showdown is a complete surprise for me. I have never thought that it would be the Dallas Mavericks and the Miami Heat that will battle for this years crown. The west in my opinion would be the toughest to win because of teams like the defending champs Lakers, the surprise Spurs and the ever improving Thunder. But with the Mavs sweeping the Lakers theres no doubt the Mavs will represent the west whoever opponent they will met in the west finals. In the East I always thought that it would be a toss up between the Heat and the Celtics, but since this two met earlier in the 2nd round the winner would be the one representing the east, and with the Heat defeating the Celtics the torch for east supremacy would clearly be in Miami's hand.
So now we have the Heat and the Mavs in the finals next week. For the Mavs it would be a sort of redemption for their collapse in the 2006 finals against the Heat, especially for the remaining player's on that rooster namely Dirk Nowitzki and Jason Terry. It would also be redemption time for one of the league best point guard in Jason Kid, Kid has been in the finals twice, and loosing it both. As for the Heat, its the well known, controversial Decision, of Lebron James to leave the Cavs to form a formidable Trio with Bosh and Wade in Miami. Lebron has been the talk of the town because of that decision, especially with their shaky start of the season, people would always pick on the Heat for every loss, mistake they commit. With the Heat on the finals, this would be a good way to shut the mouth of people who have criticize their decision.
This will be one heck of a NBA finals showdown, I hope the Mavs win it, I.m not a Mavs fan or a Heat fan. But I think this would be a good time for the Mavs to win, with their superstar Nowitzki and Kidd and also Terry in their late 30's. For the heat hey, I know they'll win more championship with those three.
