Never has it felt so good to watch a professional team see its season come to an end as it did when the Mavericks beat the Heat on Sunday night. The Big Three of LeBron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh were denied the NBA title so many thought was a sure thing when the trio conspired and joined forces in their attempt to monopolize championship trophies. First LeBron makes his ridiculous "Decision" to join the Heat on ESPN. Then the three flaunt their legion during a premature celebration that was made to look they had already won the championship. I think David Stern was even there in case he felt compelled to just give them the trophy before the season began. This was worse than putting the cart before the horse; this was more like the three saying "Cart, we don't even need a cart." After all the hoopla, any NBA fan had to enjoy watching this threesome fall on their faces. Even Heat fans are probably saying, "It really stinks that we lost, but it IS kinda funny." The adage in the NBA is that you need two superstars and one more really good player to win a title — a recipe teams like the Celtics, Lakers, Bulls and Spurs used time and time again to achieve their ultimate goal. But the way the story goes, the Heat's Big Three — two of whom were free agents before joining the team — purposely got together to do it. They didn't want to build a title contender, they took the "just add water" route and it backfired. "In your face" doesn't do this story justice. Congratulations, Dallas, on your title, and congratulations Cleveland — probably the only other city north of Texas that feels like it won something Sunday.
