The Miami Heat: Believe it or not, they make sports great.

The Dallas Mavericks made reality what so few thought could be possible.  They won the 2010-11 NBA Championship by besting the seemingly indestructible Miami Heat. “Not one.  Not two.  Not Three.  Not Four.  Not Five.  Not Six.  Not seven…” That was what LeBron James had to say in reference to the number of championships he...

Is it just me, or is the NBA evolving into more of a daytime soap opera with each passing day?
