Great Start

Was it a case of nerves? It looks like it. In his very first NBA Finals appearance, the German and his team took a good lead by winning the first two games of the deciders. They were hoping to complete what they started, but the Heat had other plans. (Image: imgur.com)

Bad Finish

Led by Dwyane Wade, the Miami based team came back from the dead to win the next four games and win the Championship. The German wonderkid made just 20 of his last 55 shots in the final three games. They lost the title, and he earned the moniker of a choker for his catastrophic under show. (Image: imgur.com)

At 26.0 PPG, The Germanator was just edged by Dwyane in the series, but the Dallas based team was better overall as a unit. The final three games went in their favor, and the team managed to secure the title. It was a memorable event in their account, and they have the German to thank for it. (Image: imgur.com)

Jump Crazy

That's his trademark jump shot. The fadeaway, as it's called, is when he takes a step back, leans at an angle, jumps off one foot, and shoots. It is a deadly tool in his arsenal, and there's no way to guard against it. (Image: imgur.com)

High Knee? No, Thanks

We think it scares opponents into coming anywhere near him when he attempts the shot. Why wouldn't they be? Nobody wants to be kneed in the face, or even the torso for that matter, by a big German bloke. Maybe his technique helps him create a separation between the defenders, but we're pretty sure they're afraid of getting near him, making the shot even more effective. (Image: imgur.com)

It's a somber-looking structure. We're not sure if he still has it. If he does, he should consider making a few changes to it. (Image: imgur.com)
