Mavs' collapse: biggest in sports history?

I was asked if the Mavs' collapse in the Finals can be considered the biggest in sports history. I have only one word for that: HA!

That title rightly belongs instead to the New York Yankees in the 2004 ALCS, who--after being up 3-0 against the Boston Red Sox-- proceeded to lose the next four to them. The Mavs, as you should recall --since it was just last week!-- were up 2-0, not 3-0. I can see how folks in the East Coast may think of the Mavs' collapse as being the worst ever, because they're likely still in denial over their collapse to the Sox in '04. It's that ol' East Coast Bias rearing its ugly head again. ;-)

Nope, sorry Yankee fans... the Great Choke Award stays in the Big Apple. >:-)
