DeShawn Stevenson: ‘Hey LeBron! How’s My Dirk Taste?’

by June 14, 2011

Hmm, how sweet victory is. After Dallas defeated Miami Sunday night to win the NBA Finals, outspoken Mavs guard DeShawn Stevenson let loose, calling out his haters and taking jabs at various players, notably LeBron James. In a ‘beef’ that dates back to the Cavaliers-Wizards playoff series’, Stevenson appears to have the last laugh for now. His latest antic: sporting a t-shirt with the message ‘Hey LeBron! How’s My Dirk Taste?’ From

“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.”
