Yeah..I remember those days. I was still in Oklahoma then, so I didnt get as much information, but that Dallas team took your Laker girls to 7 and nearly pulled it off.

Dallas was also close in '02-'03. I was at the game 6 of the WCF when they lost to the Spurs. Nash was in fine form. Nowitzki missed that game and the previous two games with a severe sprain, and Dallas just couldnt last. If Nowitzki was there, that series would have gone to 7 games and the Mavs could have won. The Finals were a joke after that series. I think that the Spurs waltzed over the Nets in 4 games.
