The Prediction – Cuban’s Fortune Grows As Mavs Take 2 Game Lead

I’m all about Laker ball. Have been since East Coast ball became irrelevant. As a Lebasketbawl follower “MikeWildcut” pointed out Kobe does have  heavy XXL balls . However, Kobe’s Cahonies aren’t going to be enough. I hate to admit the end is here. I have lost the faith. The Lakers aren’t the Lakers anymore. I watched the first game of the Mavs-Lakers series and I predict the Mavs will their way to victory. The part that makes me most nauseous? According to Mogulite Mark Cuban will see his net income raise 25% if the Mavs win the Larry O’Brien trophy. Good guys finish last and Cuban ain’t a good guy. Dirk Nowitzki will be the first white man to lead an NBA team to a title since the Bird-McHale Era. Shocking…

Why? Simple. Bench Play. The Mavericks actually have a bench. Jason Terry scored 15 points off the bench. Stojakovic had 10 points while the midget Barea put up 8. The Mavs bench rocked the Lakers bench 40 to 25. The Mavericks showed poise coming back from 16 down. Also, Ron Artest is done— stick a fork in him. He has gotten by the past few years on his bravado. His physical skills have declined and he is no longer a defensive (2 def boards) or offensive (2 points) presence. The Houston Rockets Artest is no more. Couple that with a wounded Kobe and the Lakers got serious problems. This leaves only one legit pont scorer in Khloe Kardashian’s Lamar Odom:

If the Mavs can keep a check on Lamar (or keep his tongue in Khloe) they have a good chance to pull through. Lamar put up 15 and 12 and that wasn’t enough. Kobe put up 36 and 5 and that wasn’t enough. Bynum was a non-factor with 8 and 5. The shine has came off the floor at the Staples Center. Get ready for the down home Texas Boys to bring home the hardware. Lebron better prepare himself…
