So much for that

There's a saying in politics that if you're going to lose, it's better to lose big so that there's no doubt in your mind about it. I don't know if the same is true for sports, but there's no doubt about who won Game 7 last night in Dallas. We can worry about the woulda-coulda-shouldas later, but for now I'll just say congrats to the Mavs and thanks to the Rockets for a fun season. Get 'em next time, fellas.

Oh, and I agree with Jonathan Feigen - Now would be a good time for David Stern to drop the threat of further sanctions against Jeff Van Gundy. You've made your point, so let's move on.

Where "losing bad" to remove all doubt is concerned, it appears that the Astros will give us plenty more of that where the Rockets left off.

As a Braves fan, I have to say... The Astros are the worst defensive team I have ever seen. They can't even make lots of errors because they can't manage to get to the balls. Willie Taveras has a real Roger Cedeno/Luis Polonia "I'm really fast but I have no idea what I'm doing out there" thing going. And poor Mike Lamb...
