The series had been held from May 31. German participant Dirk Nowitzki has been named the Finals MVP, becoming the 2nd European to win the award after Tony Parker (2007) and also the first German player to achieve that. The series was a rematch of the 2006 NBA Finals, which the Heat had won in six games.
