    yeah, Diaw did “travel”…but wait, this is the NBA…oh, yeh.

    I thought Dallas was going to blow this one out but that was before I came to udnerstand how well Pheonix can guard the perimeter…and Shawn Marion (though obviously still hurting from his rolled ankle in the last series) did a devent job on Dirk.

    All in all, college basketball is better… even better? SMU intramurals.

    You have good eyes, cause no one else saw the alleged “blatant travel.” Not even repeated replays could uncover this elusive infraction. Funny thing is, this reminds me of a spectator in the stands during Game 1, when Stackhouse fumbled the ball off his knee in the dying seconds of regulation. The spectator shouted, “how is that not a foul?!” Phantom foul, phantom travel. It’s the Mark Cuban effect.

    You’re probably right about the offensive foul against Devin Harris, though. It should’ve been a let-go situation.

    James: Yeah, Marion started fast but faded — did the ankle get sore? And btw, NBA is better — except for SMU intramurals. I’m ready to run some point!

    Dan: Hey, thanks for stopping in and commenting! :) Pretty hard to debate whether or not it was a travel without standing in front of the same TV and arguing with you, but I can at least prove I wasn’t all alone in the opinion… first commenter James saw it (I know James personally, and he’s a Houston Rockets fan — not a Mavs homer), and doing some reading this morning on a regular non-sports Dallas-based site brought up some people that agreed with me:

    […] “paul mokeski” — Paul Mokeski has been popular this week.   I mentioned his scouting the Phoenix Suns in passing during a post about the Mavericks/Suns series this year.  I did a little research about Mr. Mokeski on Wikipedia, which reports that Bill Simmons, Page 2 columnist, sometimes refers to him as the least athletic man to ever play in the NBA.  Bill Simmons has one of the most-read articles in the world, I’ve concluded, since almost every male I know reads him — even non-sports fans.  I’ll theorize that his name is surfacing as people research the Bill Simmons name-drop.
