Miami became a different team towards the end of the season, and those losses agaisnt Dallas do not carry that much weight. Miami and Wade have def stepped it up in the playoffs, but Dallas has played some tough opponents. We will see, but I think Miami in 6.

Re: Miami or Dallas?

Redskins.com is telling me to root for Darrell Armstrong and the Mavs because he's a big Redskins fan. So i guess i will be rooting for Dallas in this one. Thank you Redskins.com for giving me some guidance as to who to root for in the NBA Finals. Althought i never thought the Redskins would be telling me to root for a team from Dallas.

Sure it is. When Karl Malone, Kobe and Shaq all played on the same team, I would've picked the Timberwolves to beat them if I had to.

I do think that Dirk has become a real leader on that team, he can single-handedly take over and win a game if needed, like he did against the Suns. They have great defenders, assist men, Howard is a monster on the boards, plenty of three-point shooters that will be open when Dirk is double-teamed, they're good in transition and most importantly they play as a team. Miami is like an overaged All-Star team. They have too much talent, more specifically too many egos. If you can limit Wade in any way, which the flu is currently doing for the Mavs, you can beat them. Dallas just has too many capable players while Miami has too many guys who all want the last shot. Before the season even started, I predicted that Miami wouldn't win it all because their roster has too many individual stars.

Remember Bruce Smith, Deion Sanders and the expensive roster we tried? Same deal...

It's not the city's fault that the Cowboys have been arrogant drug users.

Besides, there's plenty in Dallas to make up for the Cowboys...like chili.

That's right! Remember last year after the Redskins sweept Dalls Armstrong grabbed the mike before the game and said with a huge grin "HOW ABOUT THEM REDSKINS!!" And that was at a Dallas home game! That took some balls. And it sure made me laugh for a few minutes. They have my vote.

Re: Miami or Dallas?

while dallas has no one to really guard Shaq, nobody on miami can really stop the way nowitzki's playing right now either. dirk has great range and if shaq has to step out to help haslem, the mavs are gonna find the open man. dirk has also learned how to board like a 4 should during the playoffs. wade is going to do his thing, but i think dallas has the edge at both the starting 5 and the bench. they've learned how to rotate on defense, which is something i never thought i'd see in a mavs system. i also think ft's are gonna play a big part in this series- both teams are polar opposites from the stripe.

b/c of the 2-3-2 format, i'm going with mavs in 6.
