Dirk Nowitzki has certainly paid his dues as an NBA Superstar. He only had one more accomplishment to put on his resume and that was a world championship.

His resume is now complete as the Dallas Mavericks avenged their 2006 NBA Finals loss to Miami, by defeating the “Big Three” of Lebron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami, 105-95 on Sunday night in Game 6 to stun all of the so-called experts who didn’t feel thay had a chance against the Heat.

The Mavs did the unthinkable winning two games in Miami and three in a row to close the series out at 4 games to 2.

Nowitzki, who did not have a good shooting night from the floor (9 0f 27) scored 21 points, many in the clutch, was named the Finals MVP.

The most embarrassed and disappointed player was LeBron James, who all but guaranteed a championship last summer when he made “The Decision” live on ESPN last summer to leave Cleveland for Miami. Now is resume’ is still without a championship after eight years in the NBA.

James led Miami with  21 points, Chris Bosh scored 19, Mario Chalmers had 18 and Dwayne Wade chipped in with 17.

Miami had several chances to take control of the game, but wasted every last one. They were 20 of 33 in free throws, allowed the Mavs to score 27 points off turnovers and could not get the key rebounds late in the game.

Jason Terry led the Mavericks with 27 points.

Eventhough its only the NBA preseason schedule, all of the big sports networks were building up the Miami Heat’s first game against Detroit like it was the NBA Finals.

After all, the team with championship dreams, the Heat, would be putting their three superstars on the floor for the first time as NBA teammates,  Chris Bosh, Dwayne Wade and LeBron James.

Well, the Big Three, didn’t last long as Wade left the game after 3:17 with a sprained right hamstring. He did not return.

LeBron James and Chris Bosh combined for 38 points in their Miami debuts, as the Heat beat Detroit Tuesday night, 105-89.

Bosh finished the game with 20 points and six rebounds, while the league’s reigning two-time MVP, LeBron James chipped in with 18 points.

The Pistons were led by Ben Gordon with 17 points.

With Garnett under contract, Paul Pierce on the verge of a new deal for four-years and Doc Rivers also returning, Boston will keep together the core of the 2008 NBA championship team for at least two more seasons.

After the recently completed NBA Finals, it was rumored that Doc Rivers would move on, Kevin Garnett would retire and Ray Allen would leave, but the key pieces remain intact.
