NBA  > General NBA  > Dirk Has Class - James and Wade Don't
June 11, 2011, 08:40 PM
The mocking of Dirk's illness is just one more example of the classless act that James and Wade represent. For basketball and the sake of decency in the NBA, I hope the Mavs send this embarrassment to an ignominious defeat in game 6!!!

wade and james are classless and undisciplined. their arrogance in this series caught up with them and in the end..... the better team won. and i didn't see dallas taunting the heat at any time like the heat did to dallas in the first two games. queen lebron has a long way to go before he gets to raise this trophy.

I'd like to congratulate all the Dallas Mavericks, especially Jason Kidd, after 17 years it was well deserved. It would be nice if his college BB teammate ( Cal ), Tony Gonzalez of the Atlanta Falcons had gone to the Super Bowl and Won. Both Kidd and Gonzalez took Cal to the Sweet 16 in the NCAA tournament. Both are still active ( something in the Berkeley CA water ), both are hall of famers. I'm sure Tony was one of the first to call and congratulate Jason. Another Cal player that won the Super Bowl this year was Aaron Rodgers.

No wonder most of the righteous world was rooting against the Heat. Chris Webber has more class than both of these 2 together. You got your wish SkiDoc.

Dirk admitted he faltered in the first half and praised his teammates for carrying the team, that's class, admitting you are playing subpar, something Lebron has not learned.

This happened the right way.

J. Kidd and TG are class acts and sure shot 1st ballot HOFers.

I don't think Bron-Bron knows how to properly accept failure.

If you want to be great you have to learn not to accept failure....... You adjust and move on. The era of Lebron is here and all you haters are gonna eat crow....

Agree: Both have been, two of the best in their chosen sports, although To me Tony Gonzales could have a superstar in any sport he chose!!!
