My only gripe? NBA Commissioner David Stern mispronounced Dirk Nowitzki's name while awarding him the Finals' MVP. Really...really? OTOH, Mark Cuban stayed mum throughout the post-season, showing some real maturity.
Here's what I love best about this win:
- Vindication over the Heat after the humiliation of 2006
- An NBA Championship win not by a team of stars, but by a team of players ably led by a star who stuck by his team during the lean years
- Proof that an NBA team can win without thuggery or poor sportsmanship, but instead through stalwart determination and a will to win.
