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.
Sanctimonious fans and commentators who claim to be the arbiters of which athletes deserve to win (because it's not like they decide that thing themselves by playing or anything, right) might be my #1 sports pet peeve. Lebron satisfied the terms of his contract, his contract ended, after that he doesn't owe you or Cleveland ####.

Anyway, Miami's a much more well-rounded team than people give them credit for. On the BS report everyone was talking about how Dallas was going to make them work on D and wouldn't struggle to get to 85 like Boston and Chicago. Tonight was Dallas' worst fg% of the playoffs, and Simmons was right, they didn't struggle to get to 85- they didn't even get to 85 at all.

That'll change, a few tweaks and they win that game.

Miami is a very good defensive team.

They are, and that game played right into their hands. The Mavs need to find a way to up the tempo just a bit, that'll help to soften the D.

Chicago's defense gave the Heat a lot more problems....I saw more wide open shots from the Heat in game one against Dallas than I remember seeing in the whole series against Chicago..and like I said before on here Miami's defense is like nothing Dallas has seen until now...Miami in 5 or 6 games

Usually I would agree, but Miami would benefit offensively in an up tempo game as well.

You're right about that I remember back in December how much Miami ran on teams and it was the Heat's franchise record for wins in one month..my point here is that they played a bunch of running teams in that stretch and that was way back when the Heat weren't as good as they are now...
