Good. To me, Dallas has a better shot of beating Miami anyway, though that being said, I'm not so sure that's even gonna' happen. Miami's got two mini-Jordans and a Pippen. Pretty damn ridiculous.

yo.

I agree. OKC makes too many mistakes which would feed right into Dallas.

Dallas makes none. They beat LA by simply executing better than them and are doin the same to OKC. Make no mistakes, hit open shots, and get the ball to the best player left in the playoffs

To win championships history has proven you have to have guys who have failed in the playoffs and risen above those failures. Guys who are battle tested

Dallas is full of hungry playoff failures

First time I actually felt somewhat bad for any team other than the Lakers losing.

Ibaka and Thabo bailing them out. [expletive] [expletive] [expletive] why cant our role players do this

You want to know the truth. I don't think so but I will tell you anyways. When you win you draft low in the first round. Or if you want to win now you have to trade your pics for a Pau Gasol ala Lakers. Now stop [expletive]ing complaining and try to understand NBA Basketball. Sorry to tell you but the lakers don't have a magic wand where they can get top players at the drop of a hat. I know you won't accept this truth because you 'CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH".

Dallas is looking good right now, everyone on that team failed in the playoffs before, Kidd, Dirk obviously, Terry, Marion, Peja, and only failure on the Heat is LBJ.

Wade may have been given some touch callls, but when you are aggressive and deliver as he did even without those touch calls the refs will give you the benefit of the doubt. The guy's quickness was so "flash" that sometimes those players get those calls. You have to put the hammer down in the PO. Dallas didn't in 06 and that isn't necessarily a knock on Dirk as so many fans have said.

I could be wrong, but how many of their players are high draft picks? No excuse for the Lakers not to look for good players even near the end of first round. One of the best rookies this year didn't get drafted at all. San Antonio has done a great job over the years of doing well in the scouting department and picking players with late 1st and 2nd round draft picks.

OKC drafted many of their player high in the first round. Durant, Westbrook, Harden, etc... Almost all their players were drafted ahead of the Laker draft pics.

Understatement of the year.

a true statement. A championship team doesn't win on touch calls. THEY EARN IT. Lakers didn't win the series on touch calls in game six against SAC TOWN. They earned it.

Then how are teams like SAS able to contend every year and grab enough workeable players from the draft? Just saying we could draft better if we could the front office isn't the best out there. Now thats the truth you cant handle.

Contend Yes but win every year NO. Teams like SAS? Name another one like SAS. Do you know of one?

They won a championship in 99. They wwon 50+ almost every year and still were able to pick up Parker and Ginobili in the late rounds who turned out to be all stars. Tell me one smart pick we made late in the 1st round that came any where near all star worthy.

Its funny they also picked up Luis Scola but they had to give him away because of a contract dispute. Go figure they have drafted very well
