DeShawn Stevenson: ‘Hey LeBron! How’s my Dirk taste?’
The Mavericks closed out the series on Sunday night with a 105-95 win in Game 6 before taking to South Beach club LIV to celebrate with the Larry O’Brien trophy. On Monday, the Mavericks flew home to Dallas, where Stevenson was spotted wearing a Mavericks blue and white t-shirt with lettering that read: "Hey LeBron! How’s my Dirk taste?"
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: To the victors go the spoils. It also means they get the last laugh.
Take DeShawn Stevenson, the controversial and outspoken guard for the world champion Dallas Mavericks. Stevenson, whose beef with LeBron James goes back to their days with the Washington Wizards and Cleveland Cavaliers, was unusually quiet during the NBA Finals.
Perhaps he didn’t want to make James mad. Perhaps he didn’t want to create a distraction. Perhaps he wanted to focus on winning.
Well, the Finals is over. The Mavericks won. And Stevenson is making up for lost time.
First, he called the Heat ‘classless’. Then he sported a t-shirt saying ‘Hey LeBron! How’s my Dirk taste?’. The best part of his ‘t-shirt’: it had an HDTV logo on it, the company Mavericks owner Mark Cuban founded.
For now, Stevenson has bragging rights. And he’s enjoying it.
