If you would like to see the slow and painful massacre of a once-great team and the end of the dynasty, please feel free to watch the video!
Yes, I realize there is still a winner to be determined...
As fans, nothing in the world tops the feeling of your favorite team going to its second NBA Finals in franchise history, only to face the team it hates the most (and hopefully beat them?).
To go to the Finals through a path where you recover from the devastation of blowing a 24-point lead to win the series, sweep the two-time defending champions (video!) and beat the most up-and-coming—and also feared—team in the league in five games is no ordinary feeling.
Dirk Nowitzki made this happen. Not to take away from all the inspirational efforts from the Mavericks bench players and the rest of the starters, but think of it this way: If the Mavericks are to win the Finals (which hopefully they do!), who do you think the MVP would go to?
Anywho, I love this guy Dirk Nowitzki.
