It was over. Done. They were planning the parade. The Dallas Mavericks had the NBA Finals in the bag, up two-games-to-none and handily leading in Game Three. Then it all got turned upside down. You know the rest of the story. It involves Dwyane Wade and four-straight wins.
Is it possible? No, dont say it. (But Ive got to.) Is it possible the Metroplex is headed for a repeat of that Dallas disappointment? Surely not. Surely not with these Rangers...these magical men of Nolan. Surely these guys are different. Choke-proof. Right? After all, arent the Cowboys putting the city through enough right now?
The Rangers return home with a chance to send the franchise to its first-ever World Series or into another Dallas depression.
