Mav fans need to give it up. The officiating was subpar but the Mavs lost it on their own.

I don't know. As much as I rip him about choking, I did see Dirk hit what should have been the game winner in game 5 (giving the Mavs potentially a 3-2 lead) over Shaquille O'Neal with 9 seconds left, before the 9 worse seconds of basketball officiating ensued.

i like how the "Dirk choked" sides doesn't even try to debunk my defense of Dirk and just continue saying "naw Dirk choked".

I'd like to know how Dirk choked when he dropped 29 and 15 in game 6, 30 and 7 in game 3, and traded buckets with Wade in the final minute of game 5 and hit a fadeawy over Shaq with 9s econds to go to give the Mavs the lead.

Three of the four Heat victories were decided by 1, 3, and 2 points. And these are games where Wade shot plenty of free throws in the 4th quarter. Now I'm not gonna go as far as the Mavs fans and say Wade was handed every free throw, but he was getting some ticky tack call. And Wade did play amazing... that was the most "Jordan-like take over" I've seen since, Jordan.

But really, you people need to look at the facts and look at the event in perspective, instead of jumping on the bandwagon and ripping Dirk jsut cause it's fun to do (I gotta admit, the annoying ass Mavs fans on ISH made me root against the Mavs too in the finals and this year against GS)

But instead of just dismissing us as "Mavs fans crying" (I'm not a Dirk fan, and Poetism islike the biggest Duncan homer alive, so he aint a Dirk fan), why not try to debunk my defense of Dirk if you want to conclude that Dirk choked. Instead of one line replies "naw.. dirk choked"??

Most people feel Dirk choked cause he team had a 2-0 lead and then lost four straight.

It's unfair and short-sighted but... it is what it is.

Great post, Eric.. Though Wade was handed every freethrow compared to Dirk.. the Mavs defenders had to run away form Wade to keep from fouling him and still got called for fouls.. while the Heat players were running INTO Dirk and Dirk got no calls..

i would really like to see someone try to answer why Dirk gets that rep when he has had more playoffs success than just about every other #1 guy in the league except for Duncan and Shaq. And that the Heat were a stacked team in 06 and were the favorites to win the East before the season started.

I'd also like to know how Dirk choked when he dropped 29 and 15 in game 6, 30 and 7 in game 3, and traded buckets with Wade in the final minute of game 5 and hit a fadeawy over Shaq with 9s econds to go to give the Mavs the lead.

Three of the four Heat victories were decided by 1, 3, and 2 points.

Now I'm not gonna go as far as the Mavs fans and say Wade was handed every free throw, but he was getting some ticky tack call.

Really, Id on't know how people keep saying Dirk choked the finals away... people are freaking mindless morons that just go with like the bandwagon or something.

And I don't know how the same guys make excuses and defend KG, Iverson, Tmac to the death for their repeated playoff failures. If this has nothing to do with one guy being a goofy looking White guy and the other three being "cool", I'd be a little surprised.

And really, I'm not a Mavs/Dirk fan, hell I led the pack in the "hell no Dirk is on Duncan level" debate back in 2006 and Poetism is a Duncan homer on the biggest level, so I doubt he's a "mavs fan" too. You people continue to ignore the facts and say the same thing over and over "Dirk choked... you Mavs fans stop crying, etc, etc".

Dude, you might want to learn to write a bit more concisely... you are losing the majority of your audience with these long rants...

Dirk reached.

I wouldn't have called it in that spot cause Dirk didn't stop Dwyane Wade's progress as much as Wade was selling the reach. However, Dirk did in fact reach.

Mavs got a bunch of questionable calls go their way against SA that more then likely helped them win that series. So we can't really complain that much about the horrible officiating that ensued in the Finals.

Actually, you're right. After I posted I realized that was too long and I edited it.

But still, the fact remains all the "Dirk choked" side just repeat that same one line over and over and failed to debunk any of my points in the first page. And I will take that as "they can't answer it because they know it's right yet they continue to act ignorant because the "rag on Dirk' bandwagon is fun".

And please, don't dismiss me as just "a mavs fans crying"... I was definitely rooting for Miami and GS the last two playoffs. I just gotta point out the double standard by posters on ISH (bash Dirk for choking, then defend Iverson and KG to the death and make it seem like they've played with high school D 2 players their entire careers)
