I'm not a Mavs fan but I definitely did not want the egomaniacs in Miami to win!

They might also consider giving James Jone a few minutes to rest Lebron.
The acquistion of Bibby was in my opinion a failure. He's a guy that SHOULD retire. He's at the end of his effectiveness as an NBA player. If he's not hitting his jump shot he's a liability in just about every other area.

That is one of the things the Heat are going to have address in the off-season. They need more effective bench players and either make Chalmers the point guard of find one that can do a legitimate job of penatrating and creating easier shots of for the big three and is capable of playing some defense. They also need another big man that can rebound and get some points in the paint.

I still think the Mavs will hold on
One of the huge advantages the Mavericks have had througout playoffs is they are a very good free throw shooting team.

I actually agree with you. When people put this season in perspective they will see the Heat came a long way. The first three months of the season the an argument could be made that the Heat were the fourth best team in the Eastern Conference. After that they vied with Chicago for having the best team in the Eastern Conference. The did a great job knocking off the Celtics and personally I thought the Bulls were the best team in the NBA going into the playoffs and they knocked them off.

I think the Heat need more depth, a big man in the 5 spot that rebound on both ends of the court and get 10 points a game, and another offensive threat to come off the bench.

The also need to improve their offensive sets. Right now they use too much isolation and pass on offense. They need more screeen role sets and more point guard penetration to create easier shots for other players on the floor.

I think the Mavs would've swept the Bulls, but that's my opinion.
