DeShawn Stevenson To LeBron: “How’s My Dirk Taste?”

With the feud that’s festered between DeShawn Stevenson and LeBron James, you had to know that if the Mavericks beat the Heat for a championship, Stevenson’s trash talk would come quickly and with whole lot of vinegar.

We are not disappointed.

TMZ released this photo of a celebratory Stevenson shouting out LeBron via a t-shirt with the message “Hey LeBron! How’s my Dirk taste?”

Of course, Stevenson wasn’t going to let a t-shirt do all of his talking for him. After the game he told that a championship feels even better knowing he went through LeBron to get it.

“It makes me feel good, man, to beat him, to beat that Miami team,” Stevenson told in an AmericanAirlines Arena hallway after the Mavs clinched the title with Sunday’s Game 6 win. “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.”

Ever since LeBron entered the league, people have been trying to find him a rival. At first it was going to be Carmelo Anthony, but as James’ star shined brighter, he was placed side-by-side with Kobe Bryant. As age and injury have started to slow Kobe and LeBron’s talent (and celebrity) took him higher, people tried to measure him against Michael Jordan – a comparison that crumbled with each of LeBron’s 4th quarter vanishing acts.

Maybe we set our sights way too high. Maybe we’ve just been looking in the wrong place. Maybe it’s time we start looking at Stevenson as LeBron’s true rival.

The Heat spent a lot of time addressing haters – from Dwyane Wade complaining that the world wants Miami to lose to LeBron’s post-Game Six comments about his haters and their personal problems. All the while, he’s never turned that type of laser focus to comments from Stevenson, generally treating them like a fish that’s too small.

But Stevenson stood in LeBron’s way and ultimately took what he wanted – not Mo Williams or Dan Gilbert or anyone else in the city of Cleveland. They didn’t force LeBron into missed three pointers. They didn’t keep him off the free throw line. DeShawn Stevenson and the Dallas Mavericks did that. No longer can he ignore the guy who challenged him, won when it counted most and now will very publicly enjoy the spoils. And neither should we.

  • I LOVE THE T-SHIRT. lmao

  • By Deshawn Stevenson quote on his shirt only proves that he is not on the level of Lebron. If he was a superstar, he would have diverted the attention to himself and not his far superior teammate.

    Stevenson don’t act like you were the one who won the championship for the Mavs. You better thank Terry and Nowitkzi for that.

    Even when Lebron James has an off night, he still out performs Deshawn Stevenson. Then he has the nerve to run his mouth like HE’S a superstar. Negro please. Talking about Lebron switching teams. Stevenson had no choice in the matter. That lets you knwo what the league thinks about his skills.

  • Thanks for your submission. I also believe laptop computers have grown to be more and more popular right now, and now are often the only type of computer utilized in a household. This is because at the same time that they’re becoming more and more reasonably priced, their processing power keeps growing to the point where they may be as robust as desktop through just a few years back.
