Re: NBA Finals 2011 - Dallas vs. Miami

Upside, is that there new blood in the finals for once. Downside, is that Miami has a chance to be the team that wins.

I wouldn't really call it new blood. It's the same match up as 5 years ago. And all the major players on both teams have been to the Finals before... minus Chris Bosh.

But it's not the Lakers and Celtics... so that's nice.

Don't kid yourself. It's new blood, when the Lakers, Celtics or Spurs aren't there.

To be fair, I just wanted to see how strong the Miami hate was.

It's new blood. When the Mavs and Heat last played, I think Dirk and Terry and Wade and Haslem were the only current players on those teams.

Heat win the first 2, and then lose in 6. Just the opposite of 2006

I'm rooting for Dallas but wouldn't mind seeing Miami win to annoy all the LeBron haters.

Heat in 6. They win games 1+2 at home, win one in Dallas, and then win Game 6 at home.

Re: NBA Finals 2011 - Dallas vs. Miami

I'd complain, but Kobe winning has probably annoyed all the Laker haters for a couple years now so I guess it's only fair

Re: NBA Finals 2011 - Dallas vs. Miami

Yeah, i'm confused at the people picking Miami because they're playing well. Apparently those people haven't watched the Mavs in the playoffs.

Don't get me wrong, Miami definitely looks good and can win too, it would just be for better reasons then "they're hungry" or "they're rolling"

You just want them to win so their absolute assraping of the Lakers will look better (hint: it won't).

Wait, are we supposed to who we want to win, or who we think will win?
