Can Kurt Thomas buy the Mavs some rest?

First of all, I want to apologize to the non-Mavericks fans amongst the readers and contributors of Spit Blood. Everywhere you look or listen in the Metroplex right now, it's Mavs this & Mavs that- and having grown up in Austin, I know how annoying it can be to hear way too much about a team you don't care about. I fully understand that those of you looking for a respite from the hoopla surrounding Dallas' return to the NBA Finals should be able to count on a TCU blog for that.

But even if you're not hoping for the two extra days of rest for Jason Kidd's knees that a Bulls' win in Game 5 tonight would provide as much as I am, surely you will be cheering for the last remaining Horned Frog in the NBA (and let's face it- with a possible lockout looming, Thomas turning 39 in October and the current state of Frog hoops- tonight could be the last NBA game played by a TCU alum for quite a while) against the Miami Idiocracy...I mean Heat.

Thomas hasn't played yet in the Bulls' series against Miami, but that will change tonight as he's set to take over the minutes of Omar Asik, who's out with a broken leg. Chicago head coach (and former Boston assistant) Tom Thibodeau hopes that Thomas can take over the role that PJ Brown played in the Celtics' seven-game defeat of the Lebron-led Cavaliers in the 2008 playoffs. And he's done it before, when he filled in for the injured Andrew Bogut and helped Milwaukee push Atlanta to seven games in the first round last year.

Death to the Heat!

I understand deep rooted sports hate as much as anyone and sympathize... but no one can honestly be pulling for the Heat in this thing. It'd be like pulling against Seal Team 6 against Bin Laden. Or looking forward to seeing the Hangover 2. Just wrong.

I hate the Mavs so much that yes I am pulling for the heat.
I hate the whiny bitch fans the mavs have and I hate their douche bag whiny bitch owner.
