LeBron James knows that people hated “The Decision” and delighted in his finals failure. But those aren’t the people he aims to please.
Dirk Nowitzki said Saturday that Dwyane Wade and LeBron James were “a little childish, a little ignorant” in a video that appears to show them mocking the Mavericks star’s recent illness.
Heat guard Dwyane Wade thinks his bruised left hip will not be an issue for Game 6 of the NBA Finals. Wade went through some of Miami’s practice on Saturday, took part in the regular team shooting games afterward and pronounced himself fully fit for Sunday night’s win-or-else game against the Dallas Mavericks.
Dirk Nowitzki lingered on the bench during timeouts, waiting for the horn to sound before getting up. When he made a key shot, he walked back on defense without so much as nodding in celebration.
When the Dallas Mavericks last played an NBA finals game at home five years ago, the only current players on that roster were Dirk Nowitzki and Jason Terry.
A few dribbles from the NBA finals logo, Caron Butler turns and shoots. The ball swishes through the net and his Dallas Mavericks teammates smile.
Dallas Mavericks backup center Brendan Haywood was going nowhere fast during practice Saturday.
The CBS Miami affiliate drew up a list of 15 or so mostly baseless insults targeted at the Dallas Mavericks and the surrounding area. They may have struck first, but we’ve offered a rebuttal of sorts.
Dwyane Wade’s night began with a hug for his mom. It ended with an embrace from LeBron James. And the Heat strike first in the NBA Finals.
Less than a year after coming together, the new Miami Heat have a shot at their first championship when they face the Dallas Mavericks.
Miami finished with 58 wins. Dallas finished with 57. Had the teams tied, Game 1 would be in Dallas, since the Mavs swept the Heat in the regular season.
Dirk Nowitzki scored 26 points, Jason Terry hit two big 3-pointers in the final 2 1/2 minutes, and the Dallas Mavericks ended Miami’s 12-game winning streak by beating the Heat 98-96 on Monday night.
