Charles Barkley Thinks The Mavs Will Win The 2011 NBA Finals

Picking the team that will win the NBA Finals is somewhat of an inexact science. In fact, it's probably even closer to a fool's errand. The Mavs and the Heat have only played twice this year, so it's hard to really know how they will stack up over the course of a seven game series. So picking the outcome is kind of a waste of time.

But there is one voice worth listening to - about the Finals, culinary tips, life lessons; whatever - and that's TNT's Charles Barkley. According to the Dallas Morning News, Barkley likes the Mavs in the 2011 NBA Finals.

Tyson Chandler, (DeShawn) Stevenson, (Brendan) Haywood, I like this Mavs team. Some of the stuff the Heat did against the Bulls won't work against the Mavs. They ain't going to be passing the ball over to (Joakim) Noah, they're going to be passing the ball to (Peja) Stojakovic and (Jason) Terry. They're going to be able to score.

And we'll take it.
