From the moment LeBron James made his "Decision" on July 8, 2010, the NBA had a soap opera storyline on its hands. Can the powerhouse team cruise to a title? Which team could stop them? Now that we know the Mavericks have the task of knocking off the big, bad Heat, and add in the intrigue of Dirk Nowitzki, a 13-year veteran, winning his first championship. On top of all that is the delicious possibility of David Stern handing the championship trophy to Mavericks owner Mark Cuban. Or Cuban accusing the NBA of fixing things so LeBron and the Heat would win it all. (OK, that may be a stretch, but you know it's not totally out of the realm of possibility.) Anyway, if you're still on the fence about which team to root for, check out this handy guide.
I also heard from Adam, of New York regarding athlete registries: "My friend Dan and I are big Giants fans, and he is a season ticket holder. When we heard Eli Manning was getting married a few years back, we found his registry and bought him a butter crock off the website. He and Abby sent back a thank you card (Abby's John Hancock, no Eli). They are nice people. Maybe you Cowboy fans can buy Tony something and he may write you back. Then again, Eli is a winner, while Romo is just...well...a Cowboy."
