NBA Playoffs - Day 40

Dallas Flying As A Bird To Victory

Dallas 102 Phoenix 93

The Dallas Mavericks finally made it the top of the Western Conference by beating the tough Phoenix Suns. Dallas won their series 4-2 , and will meet fellow first timer to the NBA finals Miami. As usual , game 6 was another test for the new Dallas . They went down by as much as 18 points in the 1st half but rallied through the shooting of Jerry Stackhouse and Dirk Nowitzki. Jerry S. kept the Mavs in the fight from the start. The former 76ers and ex member of the Pistons has shown great maturity . ' Jerry and Darell Armstrong are the experienced leaders of the Mavs ' said basketball Analyst Steve Kerr . Armstrong is the former long time Magic and now the reserve guard of the Mavs. Armstong was the one you always see standing like the coach. He is what you might call a team's greeter . You know the first one to give high five or whatever to the player(s) coming back from the game to the bench . All NBA teams have one in their roster . There's Ronnie Turiaf of the Lakers who's as enthusiastic as a diehard movie fan seeing his idol live for the first time . Most of these are not as livewire as Turiaf. They just show their support for great shots by teammates or lead the crowd in cheering or towel waving .Most especially as I have said , they greet the players coming back to the bench. Like those senior people you see doing it at your local WalMart . Not the young WalMart greeter shown here (must be an adult to click) . Yeh like those ' Welcome To Walmart ' seniors standing where the carts are stocked. Sometimes , they will even put a happy face sticker on young children.
The NBA should give an award to the best of them . Like the NBA gives the Sixth Man Award for the first player off the bench who contributes the most to the team.
The NBA can call it the Sixteeth Man Award.
One can be in his 60's and still do it.

' The 2nd half of this game was like game 5 . ' said basketball Analyst Doug Collins. Indeed it was . Nowitski let go of his offensive power that the Suns was not able to match . Well . until the last 4 minutes of the game.Phoenix with Steve Nash at the helm battled the Mavs until they incurred error after error. ' It was uncharacteristic of Steve and the Suns to have made so many turnovers in such a short time ' said Arizona schooled Steve Kerr. Maybe the law of averages finally caught up with Phoenix. What about reality ! Yeh reality. You see , Phoenix was not expected to go this far . ' They were expected to be at .500 after mid season in time for Amare's return ' added Kerr. So you see , Steve Nash and the Suns exceeded expectations. Definitely Steve Nash . He used to be known as a ' falterer ' . Someone who , towards the end of the regular season, is supposed to breakdown physically. What brought about this welcome change to Steve . Well if rumours are true , it was Nellie. But coach Nellie is retired and he spent most of his time a in paradise called Maui. Besides , Nellie is still connected with Dallas. No , it's not Nellie, as the former Dallas coach is called . It's Nelly the singer.
According to the TV show , Entertaintment Tonight , Steve Nash and Nellie are an item.
The Nellie referred to be close to Steve Nash is none other than fellow Canadian and singer Nelly Furtado !

My new CD is titled Maneater

Dallas can match the Heat man for man . The Mavs can put Dampier , Diop etc. against Shaq.
Wade can be handled by the Mavs guard.
Who will the Heat put against Dirk ?

Cool comment by Coach Avery when asked about Miami ...
"We already came close to the SUN, I think we can handle the HEAT"
It was something like that... hehe

in her new song, she says "do you have game or are you talking trash/is your game MVP like steve nash?" maybe that's where the hookup rumor came from, eh?

(is someone stealing your identity, posting on DBB and misspelling a lot of words? See here.

Likely. It seems Nelly is fond of namedropping Nash's name.

Thanks for the warning . I enjoy visiting your blog.
