and Dirk and the Losers Win.
The end of the NBA season has finally finished and it ends up crowning 12 brand new champions. THe big German Dirk Nowitzki took home the Finals MVP and his team that consisted of players, and franchise that had 0 titles combined took home the trophy.
The Dallas Mavericks finished off the unexpected championship against the Miami Heat last night and i couldn’t be more un-opinionated about who won. I couldn’t really cheer on any team but i did cheer on Dirk and Wade which made me root for both teams at the same time.
