The NBA Finals are over and the Dallas Mavericks became the NBA champions for the first time in its history. Led by Dirk Nowitzki, the Mavs finished off the star-studded Miami Heat in 6 games and sent fans into rapture because they denied LeBron James his first NBA ring.
Frankly I couldn’t care less about the LeBron James situation, but I’m glad the Mavs won because they were the better team this series. Miami may have the Big 3 in LeBron, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, but the Mavs were the better team with better teamwork and (seemingly) better camaraderie.
Although Nowitzki rightly won the Finals MVP, to me the most important factor for the Mavs this series was the teamwork they had. They looked like they were playing for one another and they made the necessary adjustments to counter Miami.
The Dallas Mavericks, deserved champions of the NBA!
