Mavs win it all!!
Last night the Dallas Mavericks won the NBA title. They beat the Miami Heat 105-95 in game 6. Dirk Nowitzki struggled shooting just 9 for 27 field goals but still able to put up 21 points and 11 rebounds. After the game there were tears were shed from someone other then LeBron. Dirk Nowitzki went to the locker room early because he was crying of happiness. LeBron cried again after losing a regular season game to the Chicago Bulls. Dirk Nowitzki later came back to hoist up Dallas's first NBA championship trophy and the NBA finals MVP trophy. 5 years ago this happened in Dallas but with Dwayne Wade hoisting up the trophy and receiving finals MVP. Now only two players on Dallas were around after their finals loss. Those players are Jason Terry and Dirk Nowitzki. After their finals loss Jason Terry got a tattoo of the NBA championship trophy on his arm as promise that one day he would win it all. Now that he has he plans on tattooing the date next to it. Jason Terry scored 27 points off the bench and was the Tmobile player of the game. When Nowitzki was missing Terry was scoring. This summer Tyson Chandler, JJ Barea, Caron Butler, Brian Cardinal, Peja Stojakovic, DeShawn Stevenson, will be free agents. You should expect them all to resign for a few more years. Jason Kidd has 1 more year left on his contract. Something that surprised me was that he wants to stay for 3 more years. He will be 39 this next season and if he stays as long as he wants to he will be 41 when he retires. I thought that now that Jason Kidd has finally won a championship after losing in the finals with New Jersey twice he would retire at the top. Maybe he wants more money, maybe he wants another title, or maybe he just loves the game. No matter what the reason we will be seeing more of Jason Kidd. Mark Cuban the owner of the Dallas Mavericks does not want to give rings. He thinks that rings are too old school and he plans on giving out something else to his players. While the Mavericks should have the same squad next year do not expect them to win again. Their team is filled with veterans who have fallen short before and now that they have done it the pressure to do it before retirement has been taken away. Expect the Mavs to be much more relaxed next season.
