Hey my boys took your boys out, but it was the greatest NBA series I've ever seen. I wouldn't complain if my boys had lost to the Spurs

Mavs had the best opportunity last year. But choking does not win championships.

Well this year the Mavs wont even reach the finals. They had a good chance of winning and no referees dont make you lose a 7 game series.

There is no dearth of excuses for losers.

MAVS ARE SOFT,


So what exactly does that make your precious Lakes? Couldn't finish off a team that the Mavs finished in 6.

A team that blows a 3-1 lead must be soft too right? No that can't be it. The Mavs are only soft cause they're led by a white guy right? You racist POS.

Define in your own words "an absolute sense" please.

Sorry but Bird doesnt lose like that in the finals. Just doesnt happen. Maybe Bird starts actually steping up and taking charges or something. Also dude would just laugh at HAslem trying guard him. He would either score on him or pick apart the psuedo zone they were throwing with his Amazing passing ability. I more of a MAgic fan than a Bird fan, but give the man his respect. Bird was better than Dirk at everything. But most importantly he was a much BETTER LEADER.

in terms of absolute skill. I'm obviously not going to say relatively that Dirk or Kobe is better than Bird and Jordan, considering Bird and Jordan dominated their eras. But if you actually watch film you'd see those guys' competition was much weaker, they were on stacked teams, and they missed a lot of shots. Bird missed a lot of shots. He wouldn't be tall for a small forward now anymore. Kobe can already do everything Jordan did and he has more range.

Haslem never guarded dirk unless you count 2 help defenders on every touch as constituting 'Haslem'. I remember Dirk dropping 50 on Haslem pretty damn easily in the regular season.

I didnt say Dirk was soft because he lost the 2-0 lead. Dirk is soft for a bunch of things, the way he blames every1 else, and throws teammates under the bus in the media. The way he sucks on defense, and has to hide. The way he cant score on HAslem. The way he is 7 foot and wont even post up Steve NAsh. There are a hundred reasons Dirk is soft.

If Kobe is better than Jordan and dirk is better than bird...who is your top 5 all time? Kobe, Duncan, Dirk, Shaq, and Magic? Or does magic lose credit for being on even more stacked team than Bird? And missing shots? Bird was a 50% shooter for his career. Not getting much better for a bigtime scorer.
