I was hoping he or Paul Pierce would get a ring someday and it's about to happen.
Riley's been here before, although I must give Avery a ton of credit.
It all relies on Dirk though. If he doesn't choke under the pressure, it'll be Mavs in 7. Otherwise, it's Heat in 5.
Shaq's looking for a reason to retire. He's going to be busting people left and right in order to get this ring.

Anyone remember Jordan in 97, ravaged by the flu in game 5 against the Jazz, pours on 38 and the game winning 3 pointer? Expect something similar from Flash tonight. After this series, Dirks going to wish he played soccer.
My favorite healine so far was "Mavericks show they can take a punch" - Jerry Stackhouse almost getting knocked out.
Shaq missing 8 FTs, ok that happens to us, but D-Wade missing the FTs also... that will get fixed by Game 2.
Cuban and Mavs by 5 with Miami slipping one more tight win in at home (Mavs should win on their home court...would be just the right moment for them)...
I am a bit sad for the NBA though. The absolute last thing the NBA 2.0 needed was another one-star-wonder team to win a title. Nice article about the future of the NBA...
Maybe the 03 Spurs because Robinson was essentially done by then but the trend has been more of a two-star-wonder winning since Jordan retired.
edit:I just read the article and his definition of a one-star-wonder is quite a bit different than mine.
the streets are packed, the beach, grove, downtown, everywhere.
looks like a lot of folks won't be working tomorrow.
and the people are all behaving. that makes it even more incredible.
the newscasters were first saying this will last a while, then settle down like the past, but the more time that passes the more people. lol
