DeShawn Stevenson wears a shirt that says, "Hey LeBron! How's my dirk taste?" Posted by Ben Golliver. stevenson-shirt-small

After poking and prodding Miami Heat forward LeBron James throughout the 2011 NBA Finals, Dallas Mavericks guard DeShawn Stevenson got in one final shot following Dallas' NBA title. 

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?"

That slogan is an obvious reference to a Shaquille O'Neal freestyle rap. O'Neal used the line, "Hey Kobe, tell me how my a** taste" to mock his former teammate with the Los Angeles Lakers, Kobe Bryant.

To add a play on teammate Dirk Nowitzki's name here is incredibly inspired work from Stevenson, who may well have created a legacy for himself as "The Guy Who Got Into LeBron's Head Completely" in these 2011 NBA Finals.

The most underrated part of this shirt is that it bears the sponsorship of HDNet, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban's television station. It's almost like Cuban is personally endorsing the joke.

I think it's crazy how Lebron is the story today.  And it's not really Lebron making it about Lebron.
"The Decision"

He opened a can of worms... When you act like the best and talk like the best, you should be the best...


Lebron James = ANTI-CLUTCH.... lmao

DeShawn WHO? He averaged 5.3 ppg this season. Lebron averaged 26.7. DeShawn did nothing but play D and jack up 3s. What a punkass.

DeShawn Stevenson.  You know, the guy who did NOT choke in the NBA Finals, and helped his team win a championship.  Still doesn't ring a bell?  How about the guy who does NOT wear a King James wristband, or have "Chosen 1" tattooed on his back, as if he believes himself to be some form of royalty or semi-deity.  Oh yeah, that DeShawn Stevenson. 

By the way, I absolutely love that t shirt!  I'm headed down to Florida in August, so I should get one of those to wear while I'm down there.

No one hates Cleveland, we're just tired of the jilted lover rou
tine we've been hearing for the past year from Cleveland over Lebron.  Get Over it...it's old now!    Is this guy the only thing they had going for their entire city?  He's an athlete, not GOD! He was dribbling a ball, not curing cancer.   I mean seriously the Governor of Ohio declares Dallas Mavericks "Honorary Ohioians" today!    Come on, really?  Is it that serious?  Don't they have more pressing issues going on in that state than Lebron James lol?  It's just getting a little pathetic now.  I was with Cleveland in the beginning...I thought what James did was stupid, arrogant, and a total betrayal...but now I just feel like Cleveland needs to move on.  Sitting around putting all of your time, attention, energy, and focus in Lebron James gives him way more importance than he deserves...and frankly Lebron seems to eat this stuff up anyway.    He's one of those any publicity is good publicity type of guys.  They need to focus on rebuilding the Caveliers and stop obsession over LeBrick James
