Mavs vs. Heat

Is anyone here going to be watching the NBA finals starting tomorrow? I'm in Dallas so of course I gotta cheer for the Mavs but who do you guys think will win and why? I haven't watched the Heat play before so I'm anxious to see how the Mavs play against them.

Are you nuts?? Of course I'm watching! GO MAV'S!!!!!!!
It's going to be a cussing, groaning, close your eyes and lots of cheering kind of series!! The Heat is pretty good. We just have to watch Dewayne Wade and Shaq. If we can cover them and play fast like I know all of them can, we can win it. I think it will be Mav's in the 6th, but, it may come down to game 7. It's going to be very interesting!! It's the first time that The Heat has gone also.

It should be a really good series. Frankly, I don't care how it goes one way or another, since my Timber-pups haven't ever been there. I'd like to see Dallas win, but at the same time I'd like to see if Pat Riley still has what it takes to make a championship team. He got 'em there, now to win it.

I'd also like to see Shaq win one (or more) as an Eastern Conference team. That would show that his dominance is a key factor in winning!

Why do I find humor in this statement?

My boyfriend and I also went to San Antonio almost a month ago and while we were walking on the riverwalk we saw nothing but Spurs stuff everywhere we went. We had to make sure we didn't show our Mavs pride too much but we won that night and couldn't help but get excited in front of some friends we were staying with down there. Go Mavs!

LOL!! I was a bit cautious too! I was afraid that there might be some bad feelings and someone would shove me into the river at the river walk. But I did see other folks wearing Mavs stuff! Some of the folks I talked to I told them at least we are representing the same state! If the Mavs had not of made it and the Spurs did, I would be rooting them on!!!
