What a game.

What a series.

What a finish.

Dirk Nowitzki, Jason Terry, Jason Kidd and the rest of the Dallas Mavericks can give themselves a round of applause. They were the better team. And that is why tonight, most of America will rejoice.

As Miami made its dominant run to the Finals, people started to question the NBA. What has it become? Everything we thought about teamwork and team chemistry...was it all for nothing? Don't you have to feel the pain of loss before you feel the joy of victory?

It seemed that the Miami Heat were going to shatter everything we love about our favorite basketball organization.

Until they met the Mavs.

With a miniscule point guard, an aging legend and a team full of crazies, the Dallas Mavericks defeated the Miami Heat, 4-2, in their quest for that elusive NBA championship.

LeBron, Wade and Bosh aren't going to be celebrating anymore, thanks to a wonderful display of teamwork and leadership by the championship-starved Dallas Mavericks, led by Dirk Nowitzki.

Game 6 was a roller-coaster ride.

Luckily for you, I wrote it all down. Relive the excitement. Enjoy!

(Everything written in the following slides was written live. I did not go back and change anything I wrote, or alter any of my opinions. I was literally watching and typing at the same time.)
