NBA Finals: If Mavs win, what will Cuban say?

continued from page 5

A large German flag was being waved behind the basket as Dirk Nowitzki was shooting at during pregame warmups, and plenty of fans are wearing his jerseys in the seats.

When Nowitzki finished his shooting and went to the locker room, team owner Mark Cuban took over the court. Fans booed as he started shooting, then chanted, “Let’s Go Heat.”

Mavericks franchise founder Donald Carter and his wife, Linda, a former high school basketball player who inspired him to bring the NBA to Dallas, were among the fans in the stands. He was of course wearing the white cowboy hat that was part of the club’s original logo. He still owns a portion of the club.

The blue might not stand out as much once the rest of Miami’s late-arriving fans show up. But some of them might be surprised to find themselves sitting next to someone dressed in blue.
