Since it looks like The Dallas Mavs Vs. Miami Heat are going to be in the finals, who do you think will win the finals this year?

On one hand I want Mavs to win since this is probably their last chance, but I also want The Heat to win because of all the Lebron haters. Overall I pick the mavs to take it  Wink

Mariners are only 3 games back in the AL.

And don't forget Mumbai Indians 148 for 6 (Blizzard 51, Tendulkar 36, Kallis 2-18, Shakib 2-24) beat Kolkata Knight Riders 147 for 7 (ten Doeschate 70*, Munaf 3-27) by four wickets!!

As an unashamed LeBron hater I want the Mavs to win. 

I don't just hate LeBron either, but I always root against the team of mercenaries who try to buy a championship---see the Yankees.

The Red Sox bought a team of mercenaries . . . and they're finally playing some good baseball.  Go Sox!

My local DBacks are not a great team, but they are playing some serious ball lately. Lot's of close games that they are winning. I don't know how long it will last, but they are now suddenly in 2nd place in the NL West and continuing to gain. They've suddenly become downright scrappy and fun to watch.

Mike Brown is hired as new coach of LA Lakers

I dont know what it is, but I have always hated The Lakers. I leaped out of my chair in joy when the Mavs knocked them out of the playoffs.

Right now, I'm digging the Philadelphia Phillies.

Was a huge fan as a kid, kinda fell out of it during the losing seasons, and restarted watching back in high school.

I usually head down to the stadium several times a season for some games.  Never a dull moment.

Generally I only follow baseball, hockey and football.  Beyond that, I'm a big fan of what falls into the category of 'alternative/X-Games" styled sports like Skateboarding, BMX and the like.

Dirk is definitely on the top 10 list IMO for best player to never win a title.  I really hope he gets it this year.

Does anyone consider NASCAR a sport around here?

I don't see it but apparently it's huge or something.

Yeah, I'll put him up there with Karl Malone. I dig his one legged shots.

As I was saying in another thread, I just dont see whats so entertaining about watching cars go around in a circle for three hours.  I guess you could call Nascar a sport, but the same thing can be said for golf.

Is it a sport in the purest sense of the word? That's arguable. It meets the criteria for a sport on most levels. It is organized, competitive, entertaining to those that follow it, and skillful. What it lacks is the level or athleticism that would make it comparable to more physical sports like football or basketball. I don't care for NASCAR, but I recognize that it requires a good deal of skill and coordination, so I recognize it as a sport. Hell, bobsled racing is a sport in the Olympics, and that requires a similar type of skill and coordination. I think the only people who are so concerned about whether or not auto-racing is a sport are the people who want to ridicule it and the people who want to defend against that.

Anyway, I recognize it as a sport. I just don't watch it.

I see what you're saying.  I tend to not mock it, necessarily, but just never saw the appeal of it.  Same with Golf and Bowling.

All three do take a certain level of skill yet when it comes to someone being a 'professional bowler' I can't help but laugh at them.
