    Mavs-Lakers: Looking Back at a Great Series ... and a Horrible Prediction

    ​Never been happier to be wrong. And I don't care that I wasn't alone -- I admit I was wrong. I'm stunned by the Mavs sweeping the Lakers, punctuated by Sunday's 122-86 epic shellacking. Matter of fact, I'm more surprised by this outcome than the Navy SEALs sweeping Osama. I gave currency to&n ... More >>

    Mavs-Lakers Preview: Lakers in 5

    Some of us have waited 23 years to "Beat L.A.!" Sorry, I don't see it happening in 2011 either.

    Penny For Your Thoughts, But a Million Bucks For Your Sorrow
