Yet another reason why I am rooting for the Dallas Mavericks to win the NBA title

It's no secret that I'm not a huge fan of Lebron James and during these NBA playoffs, I've been bantering back and forth with Miami Heat fans over the on the court antics of the King and his running mate, Dwyane Wade.  This may be the bias in me because I am rooting for the Mavericks to win but there is something about the way James and Wade pose after making great plays or shots that rubs me the wrong way.

Well, James and Wade took their antics off the court before game 5, this time at the expense of Dirk Nowitzki.  When leaving the teams shootaround, James and Wade poked fun and mocked Nowitzki and his illnessfrom game 4, coughing and clowning around while cameras were rolling. Sure enough, the videos are now everywhere online and serve once again as a reminder to why I hope the Mavericks can pull off this huge upset. 

Maybe James and Wade should concentrate more on finishing off games instead of mocking opposing players.  Hell, at least Dirk Nowitzki has come thru in the clutch for his team.
