Default is this the most embarassing playoff performance ever?

you know what I'm talking about- this series.

I'm not even making Dirk hate here. I am cheering on the Warriors bigtime but I atleast expected a fight. he's 1-11. I am honestly just asking... has a guy ever flopped this hard in the playoffs? leader of a 67 win team can't take on the 8 seed? I still think Dirks a top 6 player. but man! I can't even believe what I'm watching, I'm watching Dirk revert into rookie form overnight. he's melting before our eyes, seriously.

and yes, I realize I'm posting this in the middle of the third quarter. but screw it. I know damn well the Mavs and Dirk don't have another comeback in them. they're done. thats how little faith I have in Dirk now.

Paul Pierce had a pretty bad performance against the Nets in an elimination playoff game in 02. He had 14 points for the whole game and only one FG in the 4th. But Dirk is even putting PP's massive choke job to shame!

By a wide margin. This guy is supposed to be a strong candidate for MVP, and he can't even play well against an 8th seed in the 1st round.

This is the worst individual performance by a player that I have ever seen in any sport. You can't lay a bigger egg than this.

I didn't. I had GSW winning the series and I expected Dirk to be controlled. but I never expected him to be SHUT DOWN. he is being killed out there. 1-11? from an MVP candidate? from a guy who gets Bird comparisons all the time? no f-ing way, wouldn't have guessed that in a million years.

To be fair to Dallas, if the Warriors had SJax + Harrington all year long I think they'd be a no.5 or no.6 seed.

The Lakers shouldn't have even been in the playoffs or an 8th seed at best.

I've seen a lot of embarrassing and shocking playoff performances. You had the '94 Sonics losing to the Nuggets. You had the '01 Mariners, who won 116 games that year, lose to the Yankees. But, I have never seen a team and/or player choke like in this series.

I don't get the original question though

Is he talking about "eliminating game" performance or "series" performances?

Dallas had the worst choke of all-time. But Dirk's performance wasn't the worst "eliminating game" performance OR "series" performance

As far as eliminating game performances, John Starks's 2 for 18 in game 7 of the '94 Finals has to be the worst. He destroys Vernon Maxwell for 6 games and ****s up in the deciding game.

Perhaps, but even more likely, a LOT of people just overestimated Dallas, especially their heart and determination.
