And now Dirk, we just need you to do what Boston and Chicago and MVP Derrick Rose have mostly failed at accomplishing. Destroy the Evil Empire, the basketball devil, The Architects of The Decision, the Miami Heat.
"Beat the Heat" echoed at The AAC in the giddy aftermath of the win.
Yes, bring on Miami. And then beat Miami.
I realize The Mavericks just barely and practically moments ago accomplished basketball magic and The Heat has not officially disposed of Chicago. They will, karma and fate dictate it so.
It is not only OK to sports-hate Miami. Everybody else does, well, except for LeBron's mom and his agent and ESPN and Heat players who are contractually obligated to pretend like they like this dude. It is your duty as a fan of all that is good and holy in sports to hate them. Laker, Celtic, Spur fan let us all unite in the very admirable goal of hoping Bron-Bron never is rewarded for his hubris and megalomania and general jerkery with a ring.Wow, Dirk; now do it to Evil Empire in NBA Finals - Jennifer Floyd Engel / Star-Telegram
