For the first time in 35 years the NBA Finals will feature two franchises who have never reached the Finals before. So like I did for the Clippers after their historic playoff series win, here are the Top 10 individual seasons for both franchises according to the basketball version of Win Shares.

 

I guess it shouldn't be surprising that the best individual season for both franchises are from this past season. The Mavericks list is dominated by one player who may end up holding the 10 best seasons in franchise history by the time he's done and appears on his way to becoming one of the greatest players of all-time.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Dwyane Wade end up doing the same thing to Miami's list that Dirk's doing to the Dallas list right now. I think that team's headed for quite a bright future, especially the way the rest of the Eastern Conference is going to shit. They'll be the Mavs' Finals bitches for years to come.

 

And on that note, I don't think that win shares apply for basketball as well as they do for baseball. In baseball, you have so many players putting in a small piece that when someone gets a win share, they're really contributing in an above average manner. Basketball though is much more star-dependent and less easily measured by statistics so a star needs to be measured against other stars; not just on whether his contributions were good for part of his team's victory. Seeing Udonis Haslem listed on that top Miami seasons kind of invalidates it for me.
