As for me, Anybody But the Heat.

Is this yet more evidence that the world will indeed end on the 21st?

Very sad about the Celtics blowing it against the Heat. The Heat, I hate to say it, were just the better team this year.

Mavs. Dirk deserves a ring.

Yes, go Dallas! love to see them take down the mail-order team from Miami.

We all know that Dallas was the real champion of '06, anyway. :) It's time to make things right!

I think Rick Carlyle (once head coach of the Pistons) has made Dallas a more defensive-minded team, which might be enough to propel them to a championship. I'd like to see Nowitzki finally get a ring. I don't know if he's a "top 10" all time, but he's certainly a great one. -- Bilbo, in anonymous mode.

What happened to the dangerous idea that the NBA is conspiring to get the Lakers and Celtics in the Finals?

Another conspiracy theory bites the dust. What's next? Oswald really did kill Kennedy?

It's worse than that. Looks like he acted alone.
