Oh Metta World Peace.
This season, Metta pegged the Dallas Mavericks to capture the 2014 NBA title and he still believes in his prediction. Even though the San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat are battling it out on the court for the NBA crown, Metta isn’t backing down from his prediction.
If not for the mistake kick , @dallasmavs would have been in the finals and champions as i predicted before the playoffs started!!

To his credit, the Mavs did push the Spurs to a 7-game series in the opening round of the postseason but in the end, the Spurs did eliminate Dallas and proved to be the better team.
The kick he is referring to is former Spur DeJuan Blair when he kicked Tiago Splitter in the head during the series which got his suspended. However, the Spurs did crush the Mavs in Game 7 so would it have really mattered?
Can someone let Metta know it’s all about who is left standing and right now, the Spurs are on the verge of capturing title No. 5… not Dallas.
