All good, despite my team being eliminated I am also a fan of the NBA that didn't just hop on the bandwagon.

This is an exciting playoffs, one of the best I've seen and the finals should prove no different. I would be 50/50 on whom to cheer for this finals BUT....my tie-breaker always goes to the team that hasn't won it all so I'm going to root for Dallas.

I know a lot of people hate Cuban but the guy gets $hit done. He has turned a craptastic franchise into a top notch team and after getting pwned years back they re-tooled to a defensive team with offensive tools as well.

Cuban is good for the NBA, it's nice to see some passion in the stands too instead of a bunch of "Beckys" with guys 20 years older than them texting about thier dog and how much loving thier gonna have to give "grandpa" if they are going to want to get to go to the next game with them to further their *acting* career.

I have no power over the rep feature and you two already have too much of my rep power to begin with. Sorry.

Personally I love Cuban too, yeah his mouth can land him in hot water, but he is genuinely a fan, unlike some owners that seem very far removed from the game.

Bah, wishful thinking Bulls in 5, lol, it was the other way around, oh well, the Bulls are a younger team, looks like Lebron James and Co, are going all the way, I am hoping they won't, but it seems that way.

Haha. I never was on the bandwagon. As I mentioned before, I'm not a fan of either team. If anything, I should be against the Heat since they put my hometown team out in the first round. I'm fickle when it comes to pro basketball; I sometimes change my allegiance in the middle of a series. When it comes to college ball, on the other hand, it's the North Carolina Tar Heels all the way.

I just called it how I saw it. I just didn't think they had the talent and experience to win that series. It has nothing to with being on a bandwagon.

Btw, I would like to see J. Kidd win, but I don't think it's possible with Nowitzki on his team. Don't be surprised if the Mavs take a commanding 2-0 lead like they did in '05 and then squander it.

The Mavs are the Jana Novotna of the basketball world. But even she eventually won the big one, so maybe they are due.

Without rose the bulls would not have made it this far. They made it VERY far.

We where one of the last 4 teams out of 30.

They did awesome, they're a young team. They can only improve and get farther in the future.


And also....


YouTube - ‪LeBron James Flop Vs Chicago Bulls Game 5‬‏


That was funny though... on the reals
Honestly, from what i've seen on other forums/boards, the people that blame Rose are mostly Bulls fans. All i can say about him is that he is a fighter. He would be an ideal teammate. Like Spo said, "He's like trying to contain a tornado. It's unpredictable, the explosiveness".

If Bulls fans aren't pleased with Rose, then just trade him to the Sixers please! It's not like the Bulls can't get to the ECF next year without him.

NO ONE wants the NBA to turn into Euro soccer flopstastic.
I hear LeBron is applying for Spanish citizenship so he can join Spain's national soccer team.
