Morning coffee... Mavs move on to NBA Finals
The Dallas Mavericks polished off the OKC Thunder last night to win the Western Conference Finals and punch their ticket to the NBA Finals. As a Seattle SuperSonics fan, all I can say is thank god, the nightmare is over. Seeing the Thunder go to the Finals and win it would have been the ultimate slap in the face after Clay Bennett moved the Sonics from the city. Oh wait, not moved, stole.
I can't say that I've been a big Mavs guy in the past, but it's been rather entertaining watching them make their run this year. With the Heat leading 3-1 in their series we could see a rematch of the 2006 NBA Finals when the Mavs took a 2-0 lead over Miami and then fell apart to lose 4-2. With the Big 3 now on the Heat, this Finals is going to have so many storylines.
And with that said... Go Dallas!

Not a fun story, as the guy was only 27 years old.

Is there anything this guy can't do? Pitch. Hit. Stop World Hunger. A-Mazing.
