So now you backpedal and say "playoffs"?

Lebron couldn't hold David Robinsons jock. (yet)

Im really hoping that Dallas can win this thing. Dallas is a likable and fun team to me. I love Jason Terry and Dirk, and who doesn't want to see J Kidd get a ring after all these years in the league. Tyson Chandler has always been an energy guy, he still does not have a polished offensive game but his value is pretty clear. The Dallas home crowd has been pretty damn good also.

The reasons people, and myself dislike the heat are well documented, but this really does feel like the "good vs evil" type matchup. I'm just hoping the "good" takes game 6. Although, to steal a bit of hyperbole from Bill Simmons, the internet might explode if the heat lose game 7 with LeBron failing spectacularly in the 4th...of a game 7...in the finals...

Yeah, Lebron is running out of gas in the 4th. He's playing almost the entire game.

It is going to be a tough situation for the Heat to win 2 straight (even at home), Dallas is in the drivers seat now.

They've already won half of them there, so it's very doable. They just have to keep on doing what they've been doing.

I think the Mavs will get it done in Game 6. Series over. Our life moves on. LeBron doesn't get a ring even with Wade and Bosh by his side so our lives are better.

Okay, prove your point - show me and everyone else how David Robinson is better than LeBron James.

The way this series has gone so far, it deserves to go to Game 7 (and I say that even though I'm rooting for the Mavericks).

I think the Heat should play Eddie House over Bibby for game 6. Bibby was suppose to be a shooting threat, but he hasn't really put together a shooting streak. Eddie is a better defender than Bibby too though not that much better. Chalmers should really start game 6. Otherwise, it could be a long night for the Heat. They might also consider giving James Jone a few minutes to rest Lebron.
