The Larry O'Brien Trophy Will Drive Itself to Mark Cuban's House (And a Parade Update)

tropyincubanscar.JPG
We had a photographer out at Love Field, where fans met the 2011 National Basketball Association Champion Dallas Mavericks; a slide show, of course, is forthcomingright here. But one good Friend of Unfair Park was out at the airport and moments ago sent this shot, along with this note: "Cuban put trophy in drivers seat of his car before greeting fans along fence." A nice shot of Dirk and Jet -- and the Larry O'Brien -- emerging from the team plane also follows. Also on the other side, courtesy our Friend: the best T-shirt ever, worn by one Deshawn Stevenson, and council members swarming The German Moses.

As for rumors of the parade taking place Thursday, hold up: City spokesperson Jose Luis Torres tells Unfair Park that the meeting between city officials and Mavs higher-ups isn't scheduled to take place till this afternoon. "Depending on what happens this afternoon," he says, "we'll know a little more." Frank Librio says the city will "probably know for sure late today or tomorrow." A press release will go out as soon as details are finalized.

You think Ann Margolin, Jerry Allen and Ron Natinsky were gonna let Dirk get out of a council photo op?

Has Dirk endorsed a mayoral candidate yet?  That could be a game changer.

There's no "O" in LeBron. (Get it?) Anyway -- no, you're right. Just a typo long since fixed as I was trying to update this item and edit another at the same time.

This SUCKS, no more Basketball.  They should do it like NASCAR and have the Championship at the beginning of the season, that way we could go around the whole season knowing we're the champs.  Ahhh, the angst of fandom.

I'm going to leave the trophy thing to sharper comedic minds than my own.  However, I'm sure he has no idea who they are, though it's probably because everyone in that picture is hungover.  Or maybe I'm projecting?

"... holding his trophy ..." possibly a Dirk Diggler reference?
