When you start blaming everyone else but yourselves when you lose a game (see the Detroit Pistons in the 2006 Eastern Conference finals) you will only hurt yourself and the team. Emotions got in the way of their playing ability. Of course it doesn’t help any when Mark Cuban is out pointing fingers and shouting obscenities at officials. Had the Mavs and Cuban acted more like professionals and grownups rather than elementary children out on the playground, I think the outcome of the 2006 NBA Championship would have come out a different way.
