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.

Hilarious when Shaq rapped it. Almost as funny, but a bit more clever, when Stevenson wore it. The NBA's purpose is to entertain, not to teach character, and you can't say that this shirt isn't entertaining. Saying this is classless is like calling The Hangover immature, sure it is, but thats what people want to see and thats what people laugh at. I'm willing to bet that you thought it was funny too, but then came on these boards to try to act like some great person.

Classless when Shaq rapped it and classless when Stevenson wore it.  Bottom line is Dallas was a better team this year.  Lebron has attracted all the negative media his way but Stevenson needs someone in his ear right about now to explain championship character.  And, if you actually buy this shirt, you're arrogant and classless as well.

Deshawn calling people classless???  Look in the mirror dude.  I'm a Heat fan and am disappointed THE HEAT lost.  Not Lebron.  I think it's crazy how Lebron is the story today.  And it's not really Lebron making it about Lebron.  It's thousands of others, including the media and Stephenson.  People wonder why Lebron is the way he is - Lebron is to blame for much of it, but the media needs to either acknowledge their influence or let it die.  So hypocritical.  Why Stephenson cares about Lebron today is mind-boggling.  The Mavs were the better team.  Let's just congratulate them for being the champs.  Lebron is 26 and has said and done stupid things.  I think we have all said and done stupid things when we were 26.  Not making excuses for him, but it's not like the guy is OJ Simpson, Plaxico Burress, or Jim Tressel.

Why is it that I can't find anything better to do, yet you're the one who addressed me first and kept coming back responding to my posts lol.  I guess I'm not the only one with nothing better to do.   Sorry if everyone is not on the "Let's feel sorry for Cleveland" train.  Like I said I'm over that.  Lebron is an arrogant SOB but guess what Cleveland created that monster, fed his ego, and placed that mofo on a pedestal like he was freaking KING of the world.  And then when he betrays you on national TV you are surprised?  And then you spend an entire year obsessing over this dumb athelete while your team has the worst losing streak in NBA history.  Yeah time to move on!  If Lebron james of all people is the best thing Cleveland had going for their city than that's mighty sad.
