With what money?

And why? You have a team in their first year with over 3 quarters of the team as new players (one of their key vets, Haslem, just came back a couple of weeks ago - MIke Miller just started paying, too) and they are neck and neck (leading for much of the series) in the NBA finals through 6 games.  They are sitting very pretty right now for the next few seasons.  Add a couple well-fitting role payers, sure, but no need for any "stars".


Meant more in jest than anything. It was pretty obvious that LeBron and Bosh were going to the Heat and even with that kind of talent and what they already had they are in tough against a Dallas team(emphasis on the word team) as I feel the Mavs are more of a team than the Heat are.

Dallas IS more of a team. It's their second year together, for the most part. Pretty much the same team was a one and done in the playoffs last year.

My point is that the Heat have hardly failed (though anything short of a title will be "failure") in terms of reasonable expectations. The team has been together for one year (Haslem - injury, Miller and Bibby have all recently joined the team and played major minutes in the playoffs), with very questionable depth, yet they are in game 6 of the Finals against a very good team and they basically gave away 2 of their 3 losses.

Miami really "coughed" up a great opportunity!

I love it,just because I want to see LeBron go for his while career without ever winning a title.

Freaking Miami, a bunch of quitters. They were down by 10 or something with a little less than a minute and they gave up!!
Even though it was pretty much over, you don't quit like that. They didn't even attempt to start fouling Dallas every possession they got.

Babies. As much as I hate Dallas, I'm loving them tonight for this victory.

This looks good on Lebron and Co. in Miami. Hell Ya!!!!

My feelings exactly. Same goes for Bosh. My team is the Raptors but never cared for Bosh while he was there.

Nothing to do with LeBlowhard and Chrissie leaving their respective teams for greener pastures. More to do with the attitudes the 2 players displayed on their way out of their former homes.

Can hardly wait to hear the excuses to start flowing out of Miami.

Cuban was very classy. He let the original owner of the Mavs accept the trophy. Then he avoided questions and and told them to interview Coach C.

I would agree with you, but they let their egos get in the way, with all the talk of how they were going to dominate, win 5 or 6 titles.

If they hadn't opened their mouths, it would not have been a failure.  But they wanted the target on their backs, they wanted to play the bad guys.  If you're going to do that, you better deliver, and they didn't.

LeBron failed.  He quit on his team, you could see it in his eyes.  He wanted no part of the 4th quarter.  And, when the other superstar has to get in your face in a finals game to motivate you, never mind Jordan. you're not even Pippen.

Ditto. Like I said in another thread, you gotta play the season out. You don't just
hand the trophy over to the favored team, no matter how much they're stacked.
Congrats Mavs.
