the warriors kicked the suns ass to such a degree last time they played that it made me wonder if the suns could win a title at the time, being beaten at their own game and physically by GS. perhaps you forgot?
it sounds like you are implying the warriors are easy. they would have gave phoenix a huge fight.
And I'm not implying the Warriors should be easy, I'm implying that a 7 footer should be able to take these smaller players to school. Their defense isn't very good and Dirk should be able to exploit that in some way.
I know they have a game plan for Dirk, but great players get around that. I just expect more from him since he is probably the MVP this year.
See Jason Terry, stackhouse and DJ MBenga last year. As mavs fans, a suspension should happen.
nope it shouldnt(and im a mavs fan too). Just cus stack got screwed last year(the other two were rule violations where stern really had no choice) doesnt mean i want the warriors to get screwed this year. dont get me wrong i wouldnt feel sorry for them if he did but he doesnt deserve to get suspended for that. Nor do i want him too. If the mavs cant beat the warriors at full strength, they dont deserve nor will they win a title anyway. Let him play.
He's not playing well, come on. I'm not questioning his MVP assuming he gets it but he is not playing well. Missing a lot of shots he should make when the double team does not come. Game 1 he played flat out soft, my boy who's a big Mavs fan even admitted that. He showed game 2 that he CAN get to the basket against these smaller guys, as he did several times.
Dirk played.....ok last game but he's certainly not playing well. And a lot of these double teams that he gets happen because he waits way too long with the ball. He had a few times he got in the paint when he went to work quickly.......he needs to buck up and do that regularly.
I'm not hating on Dirk....these two games don't make me think "he's not MVP!" But if he plays at this level for the next 3-5 games I will. The defense he is facing throws doubles at him but every star that's ever played the game gets them and Dirk needs to overcome it.
