I was told many times over the past few years in this forum that we couldn't expect Rick and the Mavs to win a series because after all they were never favorites in any of those series.... Very strange. Somebody forgot to give Nate McMillan the memo that it is an impossibility to win a series you are not favored in. One by one, this post season destroys delusional Mavs fans narratives.
This logic is frankly embarrassing.

1) Absolutely no one is saying that it's impossible to win against a favored team. It's a total strawman/fake gatekeeping meant to prop up your weak argument

2) A single team overperforming isn't evidence of anything other than the strawman that you created that it is 100% impossible to beat a better team. Exactly one lower-seeded team won of the eight in the first round. One.
