Sonofabitch I forgot about this game.

MeanieBreanie said...

Since my Spurs aren't in it and I'm a former Dallas resident -
Go Mavs Go!!

Orel said...

Go Mavs? Go Mavs!

Fred's Brim said...

GO MAVS!

Fred's Brim said...

Lebron and DWade giving me another reason to dislike the Heats? Thank you.

Fred's Brim said...

Brian Cardinal? Brian Cardinal

Fred's Brim said...

Juwan Howard? Juwan Howard, ladies and gentlemen

Orel said...

DAL 32, MIA 27 end of 1st Q. So far, so good.

Fred's Brim said...

A new Conan the Barbarian? What are the odds be becomes the governor of California in 20 years?

Orel said...

He's married to Lisa Bonet.

Paul said...

Beat the Miami D-bags!

Fred's Brim said...

So many stiffs from both sides played in that first quarter. It's almost like they are just phoning it in so they can have a game 7...
#DavidStern #thefixisin

Fred's Brim said...

FB will not be seeing that: Transformers 3, Conan the Barbarian

Fred's Brim said...

Dirk Nowitzki, the Landon Donovan of Germany

Orel said...

Real Steel: Now there's a FB movie.

Paul said...

Meanwhile back at the barn: Reds and Giants scoreless

Fred's Brim said...

I think DeShawn Stevenson and Superintendant Chalmers should have to fight to decide who gets kicked out

Dusty Baker said...

That was pussy-ass "fight." Good god, what a raggedy-ass league. They should show them some hockey tape so they know how to go at it. And change the tules to allow them to throw punches.

Dusty Baker said...

If they are both thrown out, will anyone even notice?

Dusty Baker said...

I was dead asleep, then woke u and ran to turn on the game. At that very moment, Miami began its 14-0 run.

Fred's Brim said...

Why do the refs need security to look at a computer monitor?

Dusty Baker said...

If I looked up douche in the dictionary, the Heat's coach would be illustrated. Dictionary would also cross-reference him with grade A asshole. Doesn't he just have that look? If he were wearing an Ed hardy shirt, I think he would just spontaneously combust and be magically transported to Doucheland.

Dusty Baker said...

@FB

And could those middle-aged scarf-wearing ladies really provide much security if a threat arose?

Fred's Brim said...

I bet they could do a number on Chalmers

Dusty Baker said...

True, FB. True.

Dusty Baker said...

Dirk 1-9? Huh?

Dusty Baker said...

Guess Terry gotta do it all.

Fred's Brim said...

Go to the hole, Dirk

Dusty Baker said...

I want to wait by the movie line and pound the shit out of everyone who buys tickets to go see the Green Lantern tripe when it opens.

Dusty Baker said...

Dirk may never hit another FG again. 1-12? Huh? Too bad he's not running a 103 fever; then, he'd really be nailing it.

Fred's Brim said...

That was entertaining. I think Dirk had too many Sheets energy strips

Paul said...

Listen to some Hasselhoff at halftime Dirk!

Dusty Baker said...

When will social media and advanced technology kill the NBA halftime show?

Oh, wait, there is such thing as the mute button.

Orel said...

Ice-cold Dirk and the Mavs still up 53-51 at the half. So far....

Fred's Brim said...

FB will not be watching that: the LongHorn Network

Dusty Baker said...

Sweet mother of god, we could have played two baseball games in the time it's taken for this NBA playoff halftime.

Dusty Baker said...

Hey, Dirk missed!

Dusty Baker said...

Wow, those weren't fouls against Chandler?

#LettinThemPlay

Dusty Baker said...

8-0 run by Mavs, who are up by 7 now. Heat standing around. Dirk has to be faking it as part of his diabolical plan to go off for 67 in the 4th.

Dusty Baker said...

Instapoll:

Shittier movie:

Real Steel

Captain America

Orel said...

Barea gets the foul on LeBron!

Dusty Baker said...

Mini Sirloin Berea draws the foul on LeBron. Bron Bron, pick on someone your own size, sorry ass culero!

Orel said...

Captain America looks pretty great. A lot better than Thor, at least.

Dusty Baker said...

Seriously, Orel? (Not about the better than Thor part.)

Dusty Baker said...

45

Orel said...

I like the period look, the theme of being too small to succeed (speaking of Barea).

Orel said...

Dirk needs to — there he goes!

Dusty Baker said...

I saw the full trailer for Captain in the theater yesterday. I couldn't help but laugh out loud. It had every cliche line and every cliche character for a story we've seen over and over and over. Can't imagine why this was made or how they expect it to have an audience. I just wanted to yell "WE GET IT!"

Orel said...

Heat starting to fall apart? Wade gets T'd up.

Orel said...

What'd you see, Dusty?

Orel said...

This is a pretty sloppy quarter.

Dusty Baker said...

Super 8

Orel said...

Will Tim Duncan ever win another title?

Orel said...

How was? No spoilers please.

Dusty Baker said...

I had fairly high hopes but came away unimpressed. It was just too...Spielbergy for me. Kids on bikes kinda shit.

Fred's Brim said...

FB 5:31 PM

Orel said...

Spielberg does love kids on bikes.

Orel said...

FB, prognosticator!

Orel said...

SUSPEND EVERYONE

Dusty Baker said...

hateHateHATE Heat!!!

Dusty Baker said...

Orel: looking forward to "Mr. Popper's Penguins"

Orel said...

Um, really?

Dusty Baker said...

KIDD FOR 3!

Dusty Baker said...

It was an accusation, not a question, Orel. ;-)

Fred's Brim said...

unreal

Orel said...

Mahinmi! Had to google his name!

Orel said...

I read it as a declaration, Dusty.

Dusty Baker said...

Seen on Twitter:

"Fun Fact: Mavs Ian Mahinmi, Brian Cardinal & Corey Brewer are 12 minutes away from having more rings than LeBron James."

Orel said...

"This is going to be a long twelve minutes." It might feel like twelve and a half, thirteen minutes.

Orel said...

Dammit Mavs, don't fritter this away!

Dusty Baker said...

These 12 minutes will take 39 minutes.

#BaseballIsTimeless

Dusty Baker said...

Yeah, Mavs, don't be fritterers!

Orel said...

Frittata!

Dusty Baker said...

Someone hit a FT! What is this, a Shaq tribute?

Orel said...

You know who would rock on Expedition Impossible? Kim Possible.

Orel said...

Supernintendo Chalmers misses!

Dusty Baker said...

Jason F'in Terry ladies and gentlemen!

Dusty Baker said...

Dirk with some really key rebounds, but still can't hit a FG and, well, we know about the defensive aspect of his game. Not hatin', just sayin'.

Orel said...

J.J.! Barea, not Abrams!

Dusty Baker said...

Good one, Orel.

For the record I love JJ Abrams. ALIAS is one of my fav TV shows of all time. I would dry hump Jack Bristow til the cows came home.

Dusty Baker said...

Old Hoss Radbourn just said "Last time I saw defense this bad Gen. Lee ended up surrendering his army."

Dusty Baker said...

Dirk accidentally made a shot!

Dusty Baker said...

No foul against Dirk? Wow.

Orel said...

These twelve minutes are lasting forever!

Dusty Baker said...

19 minutes already for these 12 minutes.

Dusty Baker said...

I hope we don't have more comments in this NBA thread than we did during the GT.

This comment will self destruct in 10 seconds.

Dusty Baker said...

Horrible Bosses?

(cries)

Fred's Brim said...

Is Horrible Bosses going to be a less-funny Strangers on a Train?

Dusty Baker said...

I wanna slap that fuckin smile off Coach Spoelstra.

Orel said...

The Dodgers played today?

Orel said...

KIDDING

Dusty Baker said...

Jason Kidding?

Dusty Baker said...

I forgot Bosh was playing.

Orel said...

I'm calling this. Signed, sealed, delivered.

Dusty Baker said...

10 point game!

Orel said...

LeBron sure passes well!

Dusty Baker said...

8 point game!

Orel said...

EVERYBODY LOOKS LOST

Dusty Baker said...

I love how Dirk gets hammered on a basket and then no call, but Wade gets lightly touched on a basket and commentator says it should have been an and-1. Heat bias.

Dusty Baker said...

Heat have quit.

Orel said...

LeBomb

Orel said...

Ten-point game again!

Dusty Baker said...

2:27 remaining (cc: DeLino) and Mavs up by ten Stick a fork yet?

Orel said...

GAME OVER

Fred's Brim said...

Who was that big guy who hit that three for the Heats?

Dusty Baker said...

Definitely over.

Dusty Baker said...

And this is the way the heat go out.

Fred's Brim said...

awesome

Fred's Brim said...

Dirk getting out in a hurry!

Dusty Baker said...

FUCK THE HEAT!

And:

FUCK THE GIANTS!

Fred's Brim said...

Show Dallas, assholes. They are the ones who won

Orel said...

Wade = classy

Dusty Baker said...

Only one happy Cuban in Miami tonight.*



*Can't claim this as my own.

Orel said...

At Mark Cuban's request, championship trophy presented to original owner of Mavericks. Classy.

Dusty Baker said...

Ton of Mavs fans showed up in Miami. Strong showing, guys!

Eric Karros said...

woo!

Dusty Baker said...

I sure wish Steve Nash were part of this since he was so integral to Mavs' success for so long, and when I think of Dirk I think of his sidekick Nash.

Fred's Brim said...

When will ABC interview the new Heat coach Pat Riley? #FireSpoelstra

Dusty Baker said...

Per Jameson Moss:

Updated ring stats: MJ-6...Kobe-5...Adam Morrison-2...Dirk-1...Brian Cardinal-1...Kate Middleton-1...LeBron-0

Fred's Brim said...

Jason Kidd's DNA is all over what?

Dusty Baker said...

Who disappeared more down the stretch, Bosh or LeBron?

Fred's Brim said...

Gnite yall - rest up for the 10-2 homestand!

Gagne's lucky glasses said...

So glorious!

Dusty Baker said...

Hey LeBron, Beyonce called. Said something about a no-go for a ring.

Eric Karros said...

Hey LeBron, TLC called, said something about being a scrub and hanging out the passenger side of your best friend's ride.

Dusty Baker said...

Hey LeBron, I think Brian Cardinal just tapped your mom's ass.

Orel said...

Hey LeBron, Dan Gilbert tweeted:

"Congrats to Mark C.&entire Mavs org. Mavs NEVER stopped & now entire franchise gets rings. Old Lesson for all:There are NO SHORTCUTS. NONE."

to which he added: "http://bit.ly/ljDNqe"

Dusty Baker said...

Note sent into the Heat locker room

Dear Lebron,
Tonight I am taking my talents to your mom's house.
Love, Dirk

Josh S. said...

Where's the Tonys thread?

Eric Karros said...

DB, I believe that note actually said "LeBron, tonight I'm taking my talents to your mom's South Beach."

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

YOU LOST BECAUSE YOU SUCK, LEBRON.
