Last night Jason Kidd and the Dallas Mavericks showed that they were not afraid of the rolling of the Thunder. It did not scare them as little children are when they hear “thunder.” Instead of the Thunder rolling they are reeling. Last night and throughout the series, Jason Kidd is playing like a 22 year old and it is amazing.
I had the privilege of meeting Jason Kidd and he is one of the most gracious sports personality I have met so far. It would be a shame for him not to win a ring. He deserves to win a ring. Terry and Dirk are also deserving of a win. Most sports fan will recall in 2006 when they were up in the series against Miami Heat and they let it slip them. Everything is pointing to a rematch with the Heat. I have no doubt Dallas can pull it off this year. They are playing with a sense of urgency as if the world is coming to an end. In fact, the prediction has been revised and will now occur on October 21. That means the Dallas Mavericks need to win now.
Is the tide turning in favor of Dallas? Are they being battle-tested now to face the Heat in the finals? Do you believe the Chicago Bulls can even up the series tonight or are they done? I believe the Bulls are done. Better luck in the next world. There is no one greater than Michael Jordan. No one.
