Superstars should finish games by making free throws? Those are Superstar moves? Killer.

I'm saying that it's ridiculous to read all of this backlash because how the Mavs as a team faltered late in the 4th. Phoenix is still 1-2 against Dallas and Dirk has the gamewinner in the previous matchup. But because of a 2-point, double OT loss, now Dallas sucks and Dirk is the worst player in the league?

First of all, i havent read anyone on here saying Dallas sucks. The thread title simply calls Dirk out for choking last night. Secondly, some posters are saying that Terry and Stackhouse are more important to the Mavs than Dirk is. But thats of personal opinion. I still think that the Suns without Nash are worse off than the Mavs are without Dirk when it comes to the Most Valuable Player on a team.

Stop being a drama queen. You are starting to sound like the yak.

There's no debating that Dirk stepped on his Dick last night and got outshined by Nash. That said the MVP award is Dirk's to lose. If he turns in a few more like last night on national TV, and with ESPiN covering it non-stop, it's going to hurt Dirk, regardless if it were only one more game like that.

The mavs are the best in the nba, the suns play well in the regular season then kinda of lose it in the playoffs (except for last season). Dirk wont win the MVP this year.

Jason Terry as the Mav's MVP?

Dirk without a chance at the hall?

SA or PHO beating the MAVs with ease in the playoffs?

These are some real reaches, folks. Last I checked it went into 2OT. Not enough to rule out the Mavs or Dirk of contention for anything.

First off - As one guy already stated, Dirk has hit plenty of big shots late in games so he's no habitual choker. Even the best of players have choked a few clutch shots here and there. Amare missed a few free throws at end of 1st overtime that would have sealed the deal there.

Of course Jason Terry can ball......the dude played for the Wildcats, same as Gilbert Arenas, Bibby, Jefferson, Sean Elliott, both Stuademire's, Luke Walton, Channing Frye, ugh, my fingers are gettin tired, the list goes on. Lute knows how to put players in the NBA and they are usually pretty good all around players. And just think, Terry didn't even start for that national champion team. It was Bibby and Simon as the starting guards. I still think Bibby is one of the most clutch players there is, he's just stuck on a **** hole team.

My comment isn't that now all of a sudden the Suns' are the team to beat, it has always been trying to tell Lama that the Mavs are totally beatable. They may up winning it all, but so could the Suns, Spurs, Pistons and maybe a few more. He's just always been on here trying to tell us how great the Mavs are (which is true) and how nobody else has a shot at them (which is untrue).

And as I have stated numerous times, the past few years the Suns have been in the playoffs, they have been without some of their best players. Last year there was no Amare or Kurt Thomas and they still got to the western finals and made it very close. You can see, with a healthy Amare, they can be very successful. The year before that, they lost Joe Johnson in the 1st round and Amare was only a rookie.

It's funny the angry yak is no where to be found. He ran and hid like Dirk did with the game on the line as I say him post earlier and I know he read this thread title.

I'm sure he's read every word of this thread. He's displaying commendable restraint today.

I like Dirk. The only Maverick I dislike is poor sport who owns the team.

Guess thank god for Superstars like Howard and Terry or else that would have been a loss to the lowly Celtics.
