    The only trend I care about is who wins the title...0 out of the last 5 Champions (and even more) have won playing that style..

    Please tell me you are not wearing your Dave Bing throwback right now!

    My take is, always keep an eye to the future and your feet in the present. The past is just that. Past.

    Barkley's sporting one of those "We Believe" shirts...LOL. And he also said he would wear a Warriors jersey for the first game of the next round if they knocked out the Mavs.

    So, the Mavs are done. What a stinker by Dirk. And that guy is an MVP? Running over everyone during the season but can't compete when it matters.

    Like I said earlier, as bad as Dirk was, I think the Mavs' problems ran deeper in this series than just his sub-par play.

    No Dave Bing for me,

    Besides, I'm a proponent of learning from the past and taking that knowledge into the future.

    I think it'll probably be the Rockets. I do think the Warriors might be able to beat them. But if they make the conference finals, they'd have to beat either Phoenix (no) or San Antonio (absolutely no)...and their run would end.

    Ah, I was wondering if there was an MVP who lost in the first round before, and they just showed it...Moses a couple of times with Houston, and Unseld in '69 (I think that was when he had the MVP/Rookie of the Year double).

    Mavs "Gone Fishin'" photo on TNT showed Chuck Norris in there with Dirk, Cuban, Avery, Charles, and Kenny...with T.O. floating in the background. :laugh:

    Was that Adonal Foyle who was crowd-surfing before heading to the locker room?!

    DAL seriously needs to look at swapping Dirk for Pau. Pau has much more fight in him that Dirk does which is exactly what DAL needs.

    Unbelievable.

    Warriors will have a chance to steal Game 1 or 2 after Jazz and Rockets beat each other up in Game 7.

    A Suns-Warriors WCF matchup is not impossible.

    I'm glad people in the Bay Area finally have something to cheer for basketball-wise. I lived in San Jose for a year and the Mercury News (where I worked) didn't even assign a full-time reporter to the Warriors beat. The team was just considered a laughingstock.

    Stephen A. Smith referred to Dirk as the Tin Man on ESPN. Wow! I thought Avery Johnson and even Cuban showed decent sportsmanship in the post-game interviews/pressers.
