Dirk to Infinity and Beyond: The Tale of the Mavericks

The Dallas Mavericks are going back to the NBA Finals for the first time since 2006! They hope for a better result than five years ago, and frankly I can’t blame them.

In 2006 they were up two games to 0, and seemingly poised to win their first NBA title when disaster struck. They proceeded to lose four games in a row to the Miami Heat, the team they will play against in this years finals. Dwayne Wade scored 42 points and Dallas blew a 13-point lead with six minutes to go. Dallas’s phenom center Dirk Nowitzki actually had a chance to tie the game with a little over three seconds to play, but uncharacteristically missed one of two free throws. Dallas never recovered from that painful loss, and lost the next 3 games. Dallas went on to win 67 games behind Dirk the following year and earn a #1 seed, only to fall to the Golden State Warriors despite Dirk’s efforts.

The Mavericks have continued their winning ways mostly because of their star center. This year the Mavericks put together a strong nucleus of Jason Terry, Shawn Marion, Tyson Chandler, and J.J. Barrera. For most of his time in Dallas Dirk has led a slightly above average Mavericks team to 50+ win seasons, which is quite a feat if you think about it. Being Dallas’s only superstar he has had to deal with double and triple teams; but he has somehow managed to overcome all of this adversity. He has been like a machine in the 2011 playoffs, hitting the most impossible shots. I hope Dirk wins the championship because of all he has been through. Now he gets his chance at redemption!
