Choke of the Year? Easy, it's the Mavericks.


I had notion that the Mavericks could pull the comeback. When Baron Davis pulled up in the second quarter with a bad hammy I thought the deal was sealed. After all, the Mavs were the FREAKING OVERALL NUMBER ONE SEED FOR CRYING OUT LOUD. But 111-86??? Are you kidding me? I can't think of a bigger chokejob since Jason White from OU in a BCS bowl. Nowitzki goes 2 for 11 for a whopping 8 points. MVP? Oh hell no. Cue up the Nash band. So what did coach Avery Johnson have to say following the crushing loss:

"We just didn't have the confidence."

Seriously. I can think of some other quotes to cover things that might have been lacking that particular night:

"We just didn't have the defense."

"We just couldn't make any shots."

"We just didn't have a gameplan."

"We just didn't make any in-game adjustments."

"We just couldn't overcome the inury of their star player."

"We just didn't have the league MVP tonight."

Cue franchise meltdown.

I am officially no longer a fan of the Dallas mavericks. Although rediculous, I don't think we will se a franchise meltdown.

I was a fan through 13-win seasons, so this isn't going to knock me off the bandwagon. That being said, if there isn't some serious shake-up in personnel, we can look forward to more seasons of this.
