DeShawn Stevenson Calls Heat Classless, Wears How’s my Dirk Taste Shirt

DeShawn Stevenson has a big mouth and doesn’t back down from anyone. He called LeBron James overrated several years ago and that led to a war of words that involved rappers Soulja Boy and Jay-Z. Now that he’s won a title, Stevenson feels like he can boast.

“It makes me feel good, man, to beat him, to beat that Miami team,” Stevenson said after winning the title. “The way they act, the way they treated Dirk [Nowitzki], all the things that they said were very classless. To win on the court the way we did it, it was wonderful.”

There’s little doubt Stevenson earned the right to speak with his play. He made 57% of his threes and was a big reason the Mavericks won the title. But does anyone else find it ironic that Stevenson calls the Heat classless on one hand, and then goes out and wears this insulting shirt:

Yes, that shirt says “Hey LeBron! How’s my Dirk Taste?” Aside from the iron-on letters being glued on the shirt like it was done by The Riddler, it just is a hypocritical move by DeShawn. Yes your team won the title. Yes you had an excellent series. But you can’t call someone else classless while wearing an insulting t-shirt like that. At that point you’re just stooping to his level and it makes you appear like a hypocrite.

The Dallas Mavericks became the feel-good story after knocking off the Heat. Don’t ruin it by over-celebrating like a bunch of jerks. Act like you’ve been there before (at least somewhat).

    Cuban is down. Anyone else notice how HDNet is sponsering the shirt.

  • http://larrybrownsports.com Larry Brown

    Yup, but that’s to be expected. We already knew he was classless. Don’t have to wear the shirt.

    Stevenson was dumb to wear that. But then again, he can be a goon sometimes. Cuban’s been very classy this year. Failing to recognize that becauuuuse? And it wouldn’t be “a bunch of jerks” if Stevenson is the only one acting a fool. And your piece loses a little bit of its punch, since you get on Stevenson for hitting back and then you throw a couple little barbs the Mavs’ way…

    Reason why I said that is because Cuban’s company HDNet sponsored the shirt

    HDNet is not sponsoring the shirt. This shirt is a “The Time Is Now” shirt that he put iron-on letters on. duh. 

  • http://profiles.google.com/leicadfw leica dfw

    HDNet is not sponsoring the shirt. This shirt is a “The Time Is Now” shirt that HDNet DID sponsor but he put the iron-on letters on himself. That clearly does not mean HDNet is sponsoring the shirt or endorsing what he is saying duh.  Come on guy.

    how do you know that for sure?

    Seriously, I remember calling this Larry Brown clown out years ago from some ridiculous “writing”. Ironic? How is this ironic? You win the championship you can say or do anything you want. PERIOD. PERIOD. Mavs kept their mouth shut during the finals and when they opened it they backed it up. We win next year too. Anyone who says otherwise – well, we heard you doubt this year too. All I have to say – along with DeShawn is TELL ME – How’s my DIRK taste? WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS. Take that coughing, mocking, and sh talking somewhere else CRY-AMI HEAT. YOU GOT STOMPED ON YOUR OWN FLOOR. JUST LIKE WE KILLED THE THUNDER AND UNDRESSED THE DEFENDING WORLD CHAMPION LAKERS – WE RUN THIS. PERIOD. IT’S A FACT NOW.

    Be a fan, act like an idiot if you want. It all comes back.

  • http://profiles.google.com/leicadfw leica dfw

    Who’s the idiot? Every sports writer in America who didn’t give the Mavs a chance? I think so. What all comes back? We Won. It’s Over. There is no coming back. We don’t ever win again, so be it. We won this year. We are the best team this year. Dirk is the best player this year. Period. Period. Get over it. Name calling from the site’s name himself? Come on guy. Do me a favor. Keep posting pics and posts at what your best at – “Pau Gasol’s Girlfriend” “Hot College QBs Girlfriends” – “Jenn Brown Bikini Pics”, etc. and leave the sports talk to the people who know what they’re talking about. Mkay? Damn, got owned on your homecourt. Just like the Heat. We’re done here. WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS.

    I have never witnessed a more hypocritical team. First, Terry calls us out for “early celebration” when he acts like a plane every time he makes a shot and it’s like after every shot he has won the championship. Then, Stevenson has to be the most classless P.O.S. ever. I’m not even going to get into all the reasons why, but that shirt is the perfect example. Funny thing is, the media hasn’t really called them out on it. If it were the Heat, the world would be stoning us. I respected this team, but now I just find them pathetic minus a few players.

    I love it….the whole Miami team acted like little punks during the series. Props for DeShawn acting like a fool after actually WINNING the series.

    To add to sg1011’s comment…. the reason why the media hasn’t called out Dallas on certain small celebratory situations is simple.
    #1 Dallas did not claim top spot and multiple championships before the season started.
    #2 Dallas does not have ANY over paid or overrated players on thier team that assigns himself his own knickname.
    #3 Dallas hasn’t attempted to, or failed as bad in manipulating the media as Miami did. (The descision, the after party, the empty promises of championships)
    #4 Dallas proved again what commentators (That have actually played or have coached in the NBA) have always said: “Teams will always beat players.”
