Like Tim said on Friday’s Tim and Sid: Uncut, it’s “time for the Mavs to put their foot on the throats of the Lakers.” It’s time to take that 3 – 0 lead and finish the series this afternoon in L.A. For the last 11 years, Dallas fans have been disappointed over and over with the Mavericks’ results in the playoffs. Each of those years, their 50+ games winning season has only helped them make it to the NBA Finals once. And during those 11 winning years, they were actually ousted 4 times in the first round. Lots of changes with the organization have happened during that time (i.e. Steve Nash above), but the one constant, has been their franchise player, “The German Wunderkind” – Dirk Nowitzki. It’s a big game today Dirk, time to stop “piggybacking” and grow up. Continue that exceptional play you’ve shown in the 2011 playoffs and during today’s game, shove your German fist pump down the throats of the Lakers. “Don’t let the self-doubt creep back in.” – Sid Seixeiro.
Tim and Sid: Uncut begins again tomorrow.
