Sports World Gears Up For Mavs-Heat Game 1

Michael Rosenberg: Sports Illustrated: “Yes, the Heat have those three stars — LeBron, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh. Perhaps you heard about them. But if you strip away the hype and the fact that they all signed free-agent deals at the same time, this just means they have a lot of talent on their team. That wins in every sport.”

Jeff Caplan: ESPN Dallas/Fort Worth: “The Dallas Mavericks understood that however hard he worked, forward Caron Butler probably would not be joining this team of ring-less veterans on its pursuit of an NBA title. So they dedicated the journey to him.”

Kate Hairopoulos: Sun-Sentinel: “Mavericks guard Jason Terry looks a bit omniscient now, considering that he got a tattoo of the NBA championship trophy on his right biceps before the start of the season, via teammate DeShawn Stevenson’s personal tattoo artist. But if Dallas does stumble in the NBA Finals, which open Tuesday in Miami, Jet is prepared to erase the leap-of-faith inking.”

Sports Illustrated: “The photos of the greatest night in Miami Heat history are still on the walls of the arena where they play. Erik Spoelstra is grinning, bottle of beer in hand, the T-shirt he donned amid that championship celebration at Dallas in 2006 soaked by champagne.”
