Mavericks not superstitious, stay in same hotel as 2006

NBA players — and entire franchises — can be very superstitious. Very.

But not the Dallas Mavericks.

After what happened last time they played Miami in the NBA finals — winning the first two games then dropping the next four when Dwyane Wade took over — the Mavericks would change things up.

But no, they are staying in the exact same hotel, according to the Dallas Morning News.

“None of that matters,” Dirk Nowitzki said. “Wherever we stay is where we stay.”

Actually, back in 2006 then Mavs coach Avery Johnson did move the team out of the hotel in an attempt to shake things up, get them away from family and friends. Didn’t matter.

This time around, team family and friends are staying at another hotel. This is a business trip for the veteran Mavs. They have some redemption to take care of.

    My Question who will Stern and the Refs allow to win the Championship?

    The NBA, fans not included, owes a great deal to the HEAT and the MAVS. After getting bounced in 96, Cuban and the Mavs have been patiently waiting to be finally rewarded the Trophy after a lot of investment in the Brand called the NBA. The HEAT on the other hand pulled off a modern day coup when they landed Bosh and Bron and had Sports fans all over the World talking about the NBA for months which helped raise the Brands stature which had been flat a year ago and also helped lift year over year revenues for the Brand and will rightfully want a return on the investment.

    Will Stern ask Miami to allow the Mavs to win one, with the promise of several in the Future?
