Can Dirk Nowitzki lead the Mavs to a NBA title?

By Brandon Pemberton

Well the NBA Finals start on Tuesday night and Lebron James and the Miami Heat will face off against Dirk Nowitski’s Dallas Mavericks for the NBA title. I will breakdown the series from my point of view and give you who I think will win it all. I know everyone likes the Heat and believes Dallas will be pushovers, but don’t count them out that easy.



Roster Moves

A day after the Phillies optioned Vance Worley to AAA Lehigh Valley, they have called up left handed relief pitcher Mike Zagurski. One of two things will happen now that the roster moves have completed.

One is the rotation will skip the 5th starter spot. The Phillies have an off day coming up and don’t necessarily need a 5th until June 8th. The other option is to temporarily insert Kyle Kendrick into the rotation.

Kendrick has succeeded this year taking over for Chad Durbin without missing a beat. Personally, I’d rather just skip the start and keep Kendrick available in relief. I don’t think Kendrick would be successful past three or four innings, so why mess with his confidence.
