What’s Left to Prove?

Anyone out there who wants us to get over the ’06 final loss to the Heat won’t hear me agreeing with that sentiment. Why? Because of the way the Mavs lost that series. They were trying to prove you can win a championship with offense, three point shooting and no understanding that ”defense wins championships”.
It appears that the Mavs are now committed to winning with defense and are getting a lot of praise from the mainsteam media. Wow, it’s about time. I have been begging for the Mavs to go out and get a “true” low post player like Chandler that will prevent players from attacking the basket at will (much like Wade did both in those finals in ’06 and for many years).
So, what’s next? They are streak stoppers, winning a lot of games this season - and the ONLY team with 50+ wins in a season for more than 10 years without an NBA championship. That means there’s nothing they can do for now until the playoffs happen. Coming through with a championship is the last hurdle. Anything less would be unacceptable!
