I'm sure we will have video up soon from the Mavericks' victory parade in downtown Dallas. Before that happens, here is a little flashback to last summer's preseason party that Miami threw for their big 3.
We are nearly a year removed from the decision, and the Miami Heat have as many rings as they did last summer. As easy as it would be to pick at all the flaws in Miami's game, Dallas was just the better TEAM. I was one of those people who believed 3 superstars and 'C' players would defeat 1 superstar and 'B' players.
Now that it is all over, basketball fans will look back at the 2011 NBA Finals and remember this as a colossal failure for the Miami Heat. I would rather look back at a fantastic run for the Dallas Mavericks and a well deserved title for the first time in franchise history.
You have to love the man formerly known as Lew Alcindor. In the last few weeks, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has been busy blasting the Lakers for failing to recognize him with a statue in front of Staples Center. However, the master of the sky hook recently turned his attention to another subject that is fogging his Rec-Specs...Scottie Pippen.
Any gen-xer (1964-1982) will tell you the 80s and 90s were the golden era of the NBA. Things got so bleak in the 70s that the Finals were aired on a tape delay. Like the deus ex machina from ancient Greek tragedies, Magic Johnson and Larry Bird came in from college to save the drug riddled NBA. Bird and Magic first met in the finals in 1982, and it was must see TV.
