The Heat and Mavericks had some bad blood develop during their NBA Finals series. There was no real rivalry between the teams, but there were some individuals who had previous beef (see LeBron James and DeShawn Stevenson). While nobody will confuse this series for the real hatred going on in the Stanley Cup Final, they did get into a mini-fight during the second quarter. That there was a debate about players possibly being suspended if there were a Game 7 is laughable. That was such a non-incident, and honestly, would you expect everyone to hold hands and hug at midcourt? Both Mario Chalmers and Udonis Haslem got technical fouls as did DeShawn Stevenson. The Mavs ended up with an extra free throw as a result, but if you’re going to T-up Chalmers there, you should do the same thing to Tyson Chandler for putting his hands on Haslem.
