Here we go again: Dallas Mavericks vs. Miami Heat in the NBA Finals.
This time, the finals start a little earlier, thanks to five-game conference finals victories by the Heat and Mavericks. There’s also a bit of a sense that this might be the last big sports event for a while. The NBA may be on the cusp of a lockout and, at this point at least, there’s no end in sight to the lockout by football owners. There’s only regular-season baseball games as far as the eye can see.
