How 'Bout Them Dallas Mavericks!
It's over! The Mavericks have finally beaten the San Antonio Spurs in a playoff series. This is like the Red Sox finally catching the Yankees or Phil Mickelson finally capturing his first major championship.
No longer can San Antonio fans refer to Dallas as allas (no D).
No longer can the Spurs continue to play mind games with the Mavericks.
Dallas was the better team in this series. Period. End of discussion.
Dirk Nowitzki was the better player. Period. End of discussion.
Avery Johnson was the better coach. Period. End of discussion.
You can say all you want about their run-and-gun style of offense but it was the defense that made the difference his year.
Move over San Antonio, there's a new Sherriff in town.
Tim, I know you didn't foul him. You never do.
Like I said, I'm sure you didn't foul him!
Keep your chin up boys. There's always next year!
Hey Mike! Wish you had stayed a Dallas Maverick??
"But coach, they're good!"
It's going to be a long offseason for Duncan and Pops!
