It's the moment we've all been waiting for: The Miami Heat take on the Dallas Mavericks for the NBA Championship.

The majority of basketball fans will be on the Mavericks' side, as the Heat have drawn plenty of controversy this year which dates all the way back from the summer. 

Watch out for Dirk Nowitzki, who is shooting a stunning 51.6 percent from three-point land and contributing a whopping 28.4 points per game this postseason. The Mavericks bench have also been outstanding this post season led by Jason Terry and Peja Stojakovic.

On the flip-side, the Heat are the favorites. They are led by the Big Three. Udonis Haslem has provided some much needed support but ultimately, this team is all about LeBron, Wade and Bosh.

Once they get going, they are almost impossible to stop

Get your popcorn ready because this promises to be a good one.
