The Dallas Mavericks lost the 2006 NBA Finals mainly because the team failed to close out a series of even, coin-flip games, and because the squad had no answer for Dwyane Wade in his peak. Few teams did back then, and it’s why the Heat won the title that year and why Wade nearly dragged an injured Miami squad to the Finals the year before, according to Yahoo Sports.
Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, reportedly, wanted to know if there were other, less blindingly obvious reasons behind his team’s 4-2 series defeat. Because Wade averaged a staggering 16.2 free throws per game in the series, Cuban reportedly hired an FBI investigator to see if the Heat had help from the referees, the NBA, or any number of black helicopters along the way.
