A possible trade involving the Dallas Mavericks and Miami Heat for star center Chris Bosh has been churning around the rumor mill for weeks. Is a recent real estate purchase reason to think the rumor might soon be a reality?
Later this evening, the Miami Heat will try and avoid a disappointing end to their season when they host the Indiana Pacers in Game 7 of their Eastern Conference Finals. I have no doubt in my mind that the Heat will win at home and advance to play the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA Finals...
On Monday night, the Miami Heat extended their franchise record win streak to fifteen with a 97-81 thrashing of Minnesota. Dwayne Wade earned the 'first star' of the game by scoring 32 points, collecting seven rebounds, and dishing out ten assists.
About a week ago people were writing off the Miami Heat, especially since they were down 2-1 to the Indiana Pacers. What a difference a couple of convincing wins make as the Heat have taken control of their series with Indiana, and proven that they are resilient even without Chris Bosh.
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.
