The story coming out of this depressing series will be all about Dwayne Wadeâ€™s rising star, but the real story should be about how the referees handed some close games to the Miami Heat. The Mavericks had their hands full with the Heat, and itâ€™s a shame that they had to compete against the refs as well. I have to say that the officiating was disgusting at some critical moments, and it cost the Mavs a championship.
That being said, the Mavs were not on top of their game. They could have played much better. If they had, their fortunes would not have been determined by the poor officiating.
Congratulations to the Miami Heat. Dwayne Wade is an amazing player, and they couldnâ€™t have done it without him. Also (and I mean this with all sincerity), I am always happy when great players in the twilight of their careers win a championship. I am thrilled that both Gary Payton and Alonzo Mourning will leave the league with a championship under their belt. Well done.
Nevertheless, I am now going to put on my sackcloth and ashes. If anyone needs me, Iâ€™ll be crying myself to sleep.
