Dirk Nowitzki and the Larry O'Brien Trophy at The Loon
After stopping off at the LIV nightclub in Miami Beach on Sunday night (where Mark Cuban reportedly dropped $110,000 on drinks), the Dallas Mavericks and the Larry O'Brien Trophy continued its whirlwind tour last night, as NBA Finals MVP Dirk Nowitzki, Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, Brian "The Custodian" Cardinal and others popped over to McKinney Avenue bar The Loon to continue their celebration.

There, Nowitzki, Cuban and Cardinal posed for pictures with various fans -- and even let them hold the trophy, in some cases.

Among those who got to hold the trophy? Justin Moore, an eight-year vet of tending bar at The Loon and the frontman for area rock outfit Max Cady.

For those of you counting at home, this now makes two local musicians that have been photographed holding the trophy before you have or maybe ever will. The other would be noted area rapper Big Hoodboss, the man behind the weed-and-drank anthem, "I Got It," who was at LIV in Miami on Sunday night and who now has a picture of him holding the trophy serving as his Twitter avatar. (Oak Cliff rapper Lil Twist came close; Twist stood next to labelmate and mentor Lil Wayne as Weezy held the trophy on Sunday night.)

After the jump, courtesy of Moore, check out a few other pictures from the team and the trophy's visit to The Loon last night. And, for good measure, enjoy a video of the crowd at The Loon belting out Queen's "We Are The Champions," too.

Something tells me Cuban spent less at The Loon than he did at LIV.

Oh, like you wouldn't man-hug Dirk if given the chance...

Justin Moore, enjoying, as he puts it, "the perk of working at The Loon for eight years."

The crowd in that video is part of the private party. Look carefully and you will see Jason Kidd in yellow sitting in the middle of the bar, Mark Cuban to the right in a blue tee and all the way to the right occasionally in the shot wearing a red plaid shirt is Cardinal.

The "not all that impressed" guy is Cliff, the owner of the Loon.  He should be super impressed with how much cash was dropped in there on a random Monday night.

Someone needs to tell Cuban about all the starving kids in the world if he wants to 'drop' a few grand!

What! No full circle comment about Dirk and Nash getting sloshed at the Loon back in the day and pictures going everywhere?

That is not Brian Cardinal. That is Casey Smith, their head athletic trainer. Brian Cardinal is the big white dude who looks like he sells insurance.

Private party. Only a handful of"regulars"were allowed in.

I can tell you that Cliff was more than happy. This was supposed to happen in 06. So, we all waited 5 years. Sunday, after the game, we knew Monday would be a special time for The Loon. And, like I said, Cliff was ecstatic!

Right, because Cuban has never spent a penny on charity.

So, how many times have you entertained your friends and forgot about the starving kids in the world?

That was actually at a Fort Worth bar downtown per Dirk.  Can't remember the name.  They talked about it on the Ticket today.

Wrong, minimark, that is The Loon. And, the guy who looks like he's not impressed by posing with Dirk and the Trophy, is none other than Cliff Gonzales, owner of The Loon.

The guy in the picture is Casey Smith, an old buddy of mine from high school.     His FB page can be found here: http://www.facebook.com/profil... -- What's even funnier is that Dirk and the other guys got on stage and started performing.   Nash was on drums and was so drunk, that he fell out of the drum set and off the stage.   Good times.
