The Final Buzzer – NBA Finals Mega Preview (29/5/11)

May 29, 2011 1 comment

Another ridiculous round of playoff basketball and we finally arrive at the NBA Finals! 16 teams started and now only the Dallas Mavericks and the Miami Heat are still standing. These two teams are your 2011 NBA finals teams. The stars aligned (not for me though- R.I.P Phil Jackson Laker era,1999-2004, 2005-2011) and we now get a 5 year on rematch of the 2006 NBA finals. Will the result be the same? Who is currently the more unstoppable force, Dirk or LeBron? Can Dirk redeem himself from the last time they faced each other in the Finals? Read more…

Finally the first round is finished. We saw upsets (Grizzles and Hawks, does the Mavs win count as an upset?) we saw cracks in the armour (Lakers and Russell Westbrook’s shot selection) and the Knicks celebrating getting swept in the playoffs by picking up Chauncey Billup’s $14.2 million dollar option for next year!  Good times. Plus there are also plenty of things to look forward to as we enter the next round! Read more…
