The Dallas Mavericks have been busy the last several days.
The championship celebration in Dallas Thursday came after a visit by “Late Night with David Letterman” for a presentation about the “Top Ten Good Things About Winning the NBA Championship.”
For the edification of Spurs Nation, the players’ reasons are listed below. Or they are available on.
10: Shawn Marion, “I don’t have to sit here and lie about how winning isn’t important.”
9: J.J. Barea, “The congratulatory sext from Anthony Weiner.”
8: Rodrigue Beaubois, “Helped take the sting out of hearing Hef’s wedding was cancelled.”
7: Brian Cardinal, “It’s every kid’s dream to lick the Larry O’Brien Trophy.”
6: Rick Carlisle, “U.S. Constitution permits NBA champs to sit in on national security briefings.”
5: Tyson Chandler, “Celebrating with my kitties.”
4: Caron Butler, “Why didn’t anyone tell me we won?”
3: Jason Terry, “Now I can ask Mark Cuban for a raise.”
2: Mark Cuban, “If you thought I was cocky and obnoxious before – get ready.”
1: Dirk Nowitzki, “It might land me a Kardashian sister.”
It was an interesting, eclectic choice of presenters.
Considering his importance to the team, I wonder where Jason Kidd was when the remote crew showed up?
