Why does this guy get as nervous as a whore in church at the end of games?
Last night, he could have put game away at the end of regulation but blew a free throw (just like in the NBA finals) and missed a wide open jumper to seal the deal for the Mavs. Then, in two overtimes, he only scored 2 points.
You would expect these kind of performances from some scrub like Greg Buckner, but your MVP candidate? Aren't the great ones suppose to rise to the occasion when the game is on the line, not wilt?
After a classic choke job like that, Dirk should be removed from all MVP consideration. He gets all his stats when the pressure is off.
