Picked them after the 1st round and saw the Spurs struggling with the Kings.

Honestly I really thought we were going to do it. Now I did think we would lose to Detroit when we got there but I really thought we were coming out of the West.

I always felt like we would lose to SA in the 2nd (since it was set in stone before the season started that would be the match)

Well, I think the one thing Amare brings is a reliable low post threat who is either going to go to the line, or give you easy baskets when the jump shots ain't fallin. He can change the game when the Suns are struggling.

I think the Suns could've pulled this one out if they had Amare, but we'll never know.

I thought that they were gonna probably going to do it when they playoffs started. I did always think SA was the favorite, but I thought Dallas was gonna win it if they matched up.

Either way, props to the Mavs.

Default If the Suns had Amare, would they beat the Mavs??

You have to step back. If the Suns were able to integrate Amare midseason with Boris/Leandro/Raja all developed, they could have crushed the early playoff foes more easily. This means the Suns would be more rested. They definitely could have taken the Mavericks if they were more rested and had their number one option. They would have competed better on the boards, and got Dallas' bigs into foul trouble.

When the season started, I thought with a full season under Avery, that they would be better than last year. I thought getting rid of Finley was a good move and would make them better.

As the season progressed, I watched who they were beating. The had a phenomal record all year long against the top 10 teams in the league. They rolled all of last years conference finals teams. I new something special was going on because of Avery.

I did not count on Diop becoming a starter, but was hopeful that more beef inside no matter what was better for the team than Bradley.

As the Mavs rolled out of the All-Star Break and went on thier 19-20?? winning streak with a fully healthy team, I started thinking this was thier year.

With Timmy the Gimp and the Kings series and the Mavs sweeping the Grizz, I had the Mavs penciled in the finals. But Timmy was the old Timmy in that series and I thought the Mavs would be bounced. I didn't count on Dirk becoming the true-MVP. That's what he did.

I never thought the Mavs would loose to the Suns.

I feel confident that the Mavs have a good chance to beat the Heat and should be the favorites going into this series.

At the start of the season....no

At one point of the season, if they could stay healthy they could play with anyone. But finals? still wasn't sold on that.

Default Dirk:Walker's a Pain In The........

Did anybody see the postgame interview with Dirk?

Sagar asked him about the Heat, and Dirk said Shaq and Wade are playing great, but its the roleplayers especially

Then he said, "Walkers a pain in the.....he's a pain"

LOL

No. I thought Tim Duncan would have taken it to another level (which he did) and carried the Spurs to the championship. I underrated Nowitzki, didn't know he was so good. I knew he was good but I was always hestitant to consider him "elite"...these playoffs changed that. Put me down with the millions of others who predicted a Spurs/Pistons final.

didnt report to T.O i guess. That was pretty ***** of him to do anyways.

Dumbass Raptor fans again. I dont blame Zo, who the hell wants to live in Toronto when you got the sunshine in the tropics. I find that the Canadians I've met throughout my life have been very friendly, but on ISH, they all seem to be ass-monkey groupies.

Zo deserves to be in the finals and deserves to get a ring. The guy had two friggin kidney transplants and came back to ball. Its a luxury to have a backup like him who leaves it all out on the floor. You're all hating on him because he refused to report to a shitty team, but he has had to overcome much adversity to be where he is today. Damn Canadians, stick with your hockey.
