He had a turnover in the final seconds and missed the game tying shot......nobody says a thing but if lebron did the same that would be the only thing talked about...fair?

Did Dirk choke? No

Is Dirk choking in the finals? Judging by his play to get ther and his play while ther I would have to say HELL YES? Dirk was an unstoppable beast the first three rounds, but now not so much. He's still getting his calls, but he's shooting like crap. You can give Miami's defense some credit , but not all the credit. I think the lights are just to bright for him. That being said im pulling for him because it may be his last chance in the big dance.

Dirk didn't choke. But if LeBron did it you're right, there would 50 threads and nonstop ESPN overcoverage. And imagine what that idiot reporter would have asked :laugh2:.

What are you talking about Lebron did worse! In the closing minutes he had a double dripple, missed two three pointers, and had a travel! Dirk at least scored his teams last 12 points, which by the way i might add, is more than Lebrons total 4th quarter points this series.

LeBron's team has 2 wins, that's twice as many as Dirk's.

No he didn't choke. If he was wide open and missed the shot then I would consider it choking.

Whhaaat??? :confused:

In no way did he choke. If anything, he's the one who's kept them in games. He scored the teams' final 12 points. He did it all, and there was nothing we could do about it.

Why is everyone watching Lebron's every move? It's still Wade's team and without him they would be down 3-0.

And to keep why would you say Dirk choked? He missed a contested shot. He hit just about everything else. Miami has played him tight and he is still getting points.

yes he choked, if dirk is going to be praised like a super star when he does good, he's going to get thrown under the bus when he fcks up...he said he was going to shoot but he thought wade was coming over to block his shot, so he kicked it out to the corner but marion was gone...sounds like he got scared and choked to me

The game is on the line. He is being heavily guarded by Haslem, a solid defender. He gets the ball, does his move and puts it up only to miss by inches. (** check the play out, he doesnt lift his knee as high and proportional as his successful shots, which sucks). Its not a choke. People miss, Dirk misses rarely. It happens.

We like Dirk, he doesnt leave Dallas to go to Los Angelas so he can play with Kobe Bryant and Derek Fisher and announce it on national television. he stays with the team that is trying to build a team around him and win a championship. He doesnt grab LeBron James' arm when he has the ball and complain about the foul call. He doesnt have a rock concert to announce his team for 2010-2011. We like Dirk, the silent killer.

We make fun of LeBron James, as hes being compared to Michael Jordan... when he gets the ball on the 3 point line with no one on him and he has 20 seconds left and he shoots. A shot that could have closed out the game, but instead game Dirk that chance to have that tying shot.

Dirk misses a FT everytime the moon turns full, he rarely misses a shot and most of his skills are coming to use to bring Dallas back from some pretty bad scores. Its okay for you to miss once, its not really a choke. A choke would be if he had a lay up oppurtunity and he misses to tie the game.

Actually in the 4th qtr, no one is really watching LeBron James as he looks like a role player waiting for the ball on the 3 point line as Wades option.

LeBron is being watched now because he is hated. He is hated because hes just some punk kid compared to the rest of the league that is doing everything for him. So many reasons to hate or disrespect this guy. Now that his fan base says hes better than LeBron James... even more reason to find every flaw in him to contest that reasoning.

HES NO #23!

Yeah, its not like in game two like he scored the last 9 points for his team, hit a huge three, then an even bigger two to close out the game, and its not like he hasnt been doing that his entire career or anything.


one game does not a player make

He had 34 points last game and the rest of the team did nothing. So No he isn't choking but the rest of the team is just like they did in 06

i been in psd for a while and this has got to be the most idiotic post ever. . .dirk had his teams last 12 pts in that qtr and lbr only has 9 in 3 4th qtrs combined

Btw no disrespect but where are the mods when a truly unecessary pointless thread needs to be closed
