Close games, plenty of drama, dramatic comeback, some feistiness — these finals between the Miami Heat and Dallas Mavericks had it all.
And they had some great plays. The fine folks at NBA.com compiled these for us and we bring them to you for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy watching what it looks like when LeBron James actually took on his defender and attacked the basket (it did happen a couple of times this series and we have the video proof). Also enjoy watching Dirk Nowitzki do his thing.

NBA All-Star voting is over, and now we have the results. The starters are in, and what’s left is for us to wait until they announce the teams after they are picked in double secret ceremony.
Of course, the NBA did release the full voting results via their PR website this week, and as such there are some head scratchers. My boy Patrick Redford over at Deadspin did an excellent job rounding up some of the players who got exactly one (1) vote from other players.
The gag here is that these guys presumably voted for themselves.
players who got exactly one all-star vote that was definitely them voting for themselves:
– Nerlens Noel – Gerald Green – Kentavious Caldwell-Pope – Mario Hezonja – Kosta Koufas – Cam Payne – Langston Galloway – Luke Kennard
