We are all Nowitznesses. But especially this guy.
Welcome to the final BAD Weekend Watch of the season, and possibly the final BAD post period of the season. (And for perhaps quite a while, thanks to the nearly inevitable lockout.) Thank God we have this dedicated Dirk Nowitzki fan to ease the pain. I feel better already!Worst of Game 5 in Pictures:

(Sorry Heat fans, but this, too, makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside)
That's some crowded air space -- is the air traffic controller sleeping on the job again? Why the hell is Rick Carlisle committing invisible harakiri? Didn't his team win? Even the Smurfs went through an unfortunate disco phaseGame 6 of the NBA Finals:Mavericks at Heat, ABC, 8pm Sunday (Mavs lead series 3-2)
: If Brian Cardinal gets meaningful minutes in this game, the Mavs win. Book it. Besides, there's always time later for the Heat to win a title. Allen Iverson wants to make an NBA comeback

), I'm sure AI can join the Heat and lead them to the promised land of rings and trophies.
That being said, the Mavericks are still far from a championship. Not only are they going to win in Miami to take the title, but they are also fighting one of the most unbelievable stat curses in basketball history: Jason Terry's tattoo of the NBA championship trophy
. Certainly even Devin Harris would shy away from such insolent taunting of The Way The Game Is Supposed To Be Played.
