    I remember that series like it was last year. For whatever reason that one left a mark.

    Not me. It was replaced by the bitter taste of losing Game 7 at home in 2007 and then the injuries that derailed the 2008 and 2009 playoff runs and then the 0.9 shot last year.

    It's b/c we had them where we wanted and they humiliated us in Game 7. Add to that Dirk's stupid tongue-wagging, Terry's stupid jet thing, and Mark Cuban being a paragon of humility- hell yes, that pissed me off. Still remember exactly where I was- Post, TX, chaperoning a Boy Scout camping trip. After listening to it on the radio out in the wilderness, I was so pissed that I left and let the scouts fend for themselves.



    (absolutely j/k about the last sentence)

    Would you argue that this rockets team is better than 2005's?

    I remember each game vividly! Hatred for Dallas really went to another level after that!

    A couple fun memories from they series: Tmac sucking the gravity right out of the building, and his chin while after hitting a game winner.

    Losing to them has left a bitter feeling which refuses to go away. The injury to Juwan Howard before the series hurt us a lot.

    The Finley non-call was atrocious.

    I just hope, at least once, it's Jet who hits the nail in the coffin shot.

    Good god, I hate Dallas.
    JVG was a boss for speaking out.
    Believe the players ended up paying his fine.
