The 2011 NBA Finals are set to begin tomorrow with Game 1 between the Miami Heat and Dallas Mavericks on South Beach.
Tip-off will be approximately 9:00 p.m. ET on ABC.
This year's Finals is a rematch of the 2006 NBA Finals, when Dwyane Wade and Shaquille O'Neal overcame a 2-0 series deficit by winning the next four games to give the Heat their first championship in team history.
There are several storylines heading into this series, the two biggest being Heat superstar LeBron James' quest for his first title and Dallas' future Hall of Famer Dirk Nowitzki's same quest.
While a title will enhance the legacy of either James or Nowitzki, they will need their teammates' support to accomplish the goal.
Now let's look at the 2011 NBA Finals matchups, x-factors, the schedule and more.
