Stevenson was released from the Irving Jail on Wednesday morning , Dallas reported.

Dallas coach Rick Carlisle turned around the NBA Finals before Game 4 when he removed Stevenson from the starting lineup and replaced him with guard J.J. Barea. But Stevenson did not pout and earned much notice for after the series ended.

Earlier, Stevenson took a shot at the Heat only moments after the Mavericks claimed their first NBA title.

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