Marc Cuban's blog ought to be pretty entertaining. Maybe Dallas will do a fire sale? They need to break that team up and get some defensive players

It's the most embarrassing one I've ever seen. Dallas looked like mental midgets for all of about six minutes of the series.

Before Game 4, a Warriors coach told me the staff thought Nowitzki was scared of Jackson; he certainly looked it. Robbed of the ability to drive -- because the double team came immediately -- Nowitzki had to try to shoot over the Warriors, and he couldn't, or wouldn't, do it. Jackson made him look miserable.

Wow, this is not good. They smelled fear on Dirk.... Somewhere Bobby Jackson is smiling and noddin in agreement

I could see it in eyes the whole series...he's got some soul searching to do

The main reason they lost was because Don Nelson knew that team inside and out, and Avery Johnson made no adjustments whatsoever.

Lebron vs Boston last year was the worst.

You can forgive a bad performance but you can't forgive a surrender.

It's a TEAM game, that ranges from the very top of the organization down to the players. You win as a TEAM, ...and you lose as a TEAM. When basketball becomes a one-on-one sport, then we will know who the real best player is. Until then, the blame cannot fall on ONE player's shoulders.

LeBron had triple double in that series. Dirk got outscored by Mo Ager in the elimination game of that series.

It was definitely a horrible game, but Dirk has also had MANY amazing elimination games so I don't think it means too much in the long run.

Searched and found this

in elimination-games, Dirk Nowitzki has 13 30+ point performances. Only Wilt the Stilt, tied at 13, and Jerry West at 14, have achieved similar results!

Dirk career elimination games: 28.4ppg, 12.2rpg, 49%fg, 39%3pt.

To be clear, Dirk was flat out make-me-want-to-puke bad that day.... but I don't think a game like that can label you a choker for the rest of your career when the other 13 games you score 30.

Even after nearly 4 years, this still stands as the most embarrassing ever. All time.
