Stockton, Nash, and Kidd all have incredible IQ's that allowed/allows them to be effective at an advanced age. Payton was more or less a benchwarmer by 38, because I don't think he's in the same class as those guys from an IQ standpoint.

While gp wasn't able to hold up as well at 38-39 he was 11 and 7 at 36-37 yrs old.
My point is that it should not be much of a surprise that a pg like Kidd is so effective at his age.

As a Mavericks fan that's my biggest concern.

Also defensively I see Dwayne Wade giving the Mavericks problems. I don't think they have anybody that can cover him one on one.

from the Ben & Skin show, on who deserves title....

Lebron deserves nothing more than a warm cup of failure. I'm not sure what that means but clearly there is no way to dispute it. LeBron abandoned a city when he couldn't get it done as as the only true superstar on the Cleveland roster. Dirk gave his home team a $16 million dollar discount and never tried to play GM. If you have to ask who deserves it more, you haven't been paying attention to the world you live in.

Terrible offensive performance by Dallas. That 3 by James at the end of the first half gave Miami huge momentum.

It did, but Im actually pretty excited. If the Mavs clean things up a bit, they can win game two. I think they'll win 2/3 at home.

Miami hasn't accomplished anything yet because if they don't win Game 2 they have to go to Dallas for 3 straight games with the series tied at 1-1

LeBron put himself in the best position to contend for a championship. The fact he is in the NBA Finals while Cleveland got lottery picks vinidicates his decision. Even of he doesn't win a championship this year he's put himself in a far better position for the next three to five years than he would have at Cleveland.

Afrer ownership fired one of the best young coaches in basketball over the objections of the general manager and then he left the team I really don't think LeBron had much confidence in the ownership of the Cavaliers to put together a winning group.

If Dallas doesn't shoot better than this there is no way they win this series. They also need to tighten up their rebounding.

Sure he did, but he still quit. He gave up on his home city. He told the world I cant do it without Wade and Bosh. Its not an unpardonable sin for him to leave Cleveland, but it certainly taints his legacy to many NBA fans. Its not like they were languishing at the bottom, they were continually challenging for the top spot in the East.
