How does it taste MIAMI…?

I can tell you that the only thing LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh tasted were their salty tears on their face and the locker room floor as they dropped to their knees after last night’s game in Miami. The unbranded range animals also known as the Mavericks bled black and blue all over the basketball court. The Dallas Mavericks pulled off a huge win in Game 6 of the NBA finals last night to be crowned this year NBA Champions. Yeah…ok, their crowns looked more like fitted’s – but the taste of Victory against the Miami Heat was scrumptiously delicious. Well… you can’t muzzle a Maverick and they were out full force. Last I heard, Dirk Nowitzki will be teaching a course called “How to Beat the Heat 101” because last night, he schooled Miami.
The Mavericks’ win over the Heat is proof that chemistry and cohesion goes a lot further then just individual talent coming together. It is amazing to see the purity of Dallas’ team capture the win and a great denial of Miami’s high profile engineering project. The Mavericks played a certain way, playing collectively, trusting the pass and most of all believing in each other.
Sure, LeBron James took his talents to South Beach but the Mavericks took an entire team which proved to be the difference in this NBA finals series. The Heat may have had the stars lined up but the champions, Dallas Mavericks had the team. Its ok, I think dancing with the stars is recruiting cast for next season, between James, Wade or Bosh – the show now has 3 more options.
In all truthfulness, if the players had been standing around waiting to choose sides and break into teams, the first 2 players taken would have definitely been James and Wade. Nowitzki would have been third followed by Bosh. The Heat had the edge in star power. However, it turned out the Mavericks had a more significant edge.
Nowitzki won the Most Valuable Player trophy for the series. Jason Terry came up huge Sunday night. But there are more names that must be mentioned in this most significant win in franchise history. Chandler’s defensive presence. Jason Kidd and Shawn Marion’s all-around contribution. Also shout out to J.J. Barea coming up with 15 points and 5 assists and consistently breaking down Miami’s defense. DeShawn Stevenson bombarded the Heat with a 3-point round. Brian Cardinal and Ian Mahinmi also provided meaningful moments throughout the series. Carlisle said it best, “It’s not about what your potential shortcomings are. It’s what we could accomplish as a group together.”
So, the LeBron James and Chris Bosh hate clubs will continue to run and in the meantime the rest of us can all anticipate another amazing season of basketball this coming fall. Until then, tomorrow is National LeBron James day— So everyone, you can officially leave work 12 minutes early tomorrow.
