This year for the first time in quite a while the Lakers, Celtics, Magic and Spurs are not in the NBA Finals. Also includes the Bulls who were suppose to make it to the finals, because of their amazing season.
It came as a shock to many, because the Lakers and Spurs were expected to be competing in the Western Finals with the Lakers coming out on top and heading to the finals for the 3peat. Then the Bulls, Celtics or Magic were suppose to contend with maybe the Celtics getting to the finals for a rematch with the Lakers.
It all changed.
We now have the Miami Heat and Dallas Mavericks meeting again in the NBA Finals. This is a rematch of the finals in 2006 when the Miami Heat shocked and upset the Mavericks who seemed to be the favorites even with a Heat team that had Shaq.
This year the Mavericks are hungry. Really hungry for redemption. They want it bad and seems like they WILL win this year, BUT the Miami Heat with D-Wade, Lebron and Chris Bosh have been gelling well lately.
It will be a good finals series, both teams will fight hard.
I see the Mavericks coming out on top this time because Dirk will not let the team down. He will fight for this victory and with a nice bench...the Mavericks can very well do it.
