I have been struggling with this one. Two months ago, I would have said yes. Absolutely. No question. Now..... I just don't know. Home losses against their two top competitors over the last week has me questioning their ability to play on that level, and my guess is, it has them questioning it too.
The Lakers and Spurs are champions. Been there, done that. The Mavericks, while always in the hunt, have not toppled that championship mountain.
What really has me questioning their ability to win a series with San Antonio or L.A. comes down to star power. We saw it tonight. The Spurs big 3. Parker, Ginobili and Duncan against the Mavs big 1, Dirk. I just don't think they have enough, but would love for them to prove me wrong.
