Goat: Dirk Nowitzki
Game: Game 6, 2007 Western Conference Quarterfinals
Date: 5/4/2007

Feeling that they were cheated out of a title in '06, the Dallas Mavericks went through the 2007 season like a team possessed. Winning a league best 67 games, the Warriors—who hadn't even been to the playoffs since 1994—should've been an afterthought. Instead, they became the first eighth seed ever to win a seven-game first round series. Dirk Nowitzki, who went 2-13 in the decisive Game 6, was awarded the MVP a week later. Whoops.
