The Rematch... Mavericks vs Heat.... 2011 NBA Finals


2006 Finals MVP D-Wade
It all comes down to this.  2 teams highly who were scrutinized.  2 teams with elite players' legacies on the line.  2 teams with very similar paths to the Finals who are on a collision course to see who is best.  2 teams starving for a championship. 

In 2006, the world witnessed maybe the greatest Finals performance by an individual for 1 whole series when Dwayne Wade rallied Miami back from the dead in the 4th quarter of game 3 against a Dirk Nowitzki led Mavericks team that was up 2 games to none in the series with a 89 to 76 lead with 5 minutes left to play.  And much like he did last night to help LeBron & the Heat get passed Chicago when they were down 77 to 65 with 3:48 to play in the Eastern Conference Finals clincher, D-Wade did not conceive to losing, he took that game and more importantly the series over.  D-Wade would eventually lead the Miami Heat to the 1st & only NBA Championship.  Dirk, Jason Terry & Mark Cuban has let that missed opportunity haunt them for the last 5 years.  Now it's time for payback.  Now it's time for the Mavs to have their revenge, or is it?

Yes this Dallas team is different, but this Miami team has a new cast of characters as well.  From now up until the start of the Finals this Tuesday night, Mike McClendon & myself will give our opinions on how either 1 of these exciting teams can bring home the gold.   You got Wade, LeBron, Dirk, Kidd, Bosh, the Jet, the Matrix, Riley & Cuban all in one series.  It will be a star-studded event.  In the words of the great T.O... GET YOUR POPCORN READY!!!!
