Dallas Mavericks Lose NBA Finals

Those of you who really know me will be really surprised that I'm writing a post about sports because I have long been completely ignorant and uncaring of all things sporting. But my wife has always liked basketball and when the NBA playoffs started, she began watching. And so I did, too. And living right next door to Dallas, I have turned into a big Mavericks fan. So I was disappointed to see the Mavs just lose the final by, I think, three points.

The Mavericks' team chaplain is Dr. Tony Evans, who is broadcast on NRB, right before RC Sproul. I only watch that channel for Sproul, so I often catch the end of Tony Evans, and though I don't know anything else about him, I have liked what I've heard. He seems to preach the Bible and not just fluff.

Anyway, Dwayne Wade of the Miami Heat deserves their victory. Admittedly I have only watched basketball for a few weeks, plus some as a kid, but I have never seen anybody score as often as Wade, especially in very difficult circumstances. That guy just can't miss, and the Mavs kept fouling him. Silly people! Don't foul Wade! I bet that about 1/3 of Miami's score was from free throws, and most of those from Wade.

I hope he gets MVP.

As soon as I clicked "publish" on this post, I heard the television say that Wade did get MVP. Good job.
