DeShawn Stevenson busted out the classy, “Hey LeBron, how’s my Dirk taste” T-shirt last night at the hotel after the Dallas Mavericks beat the Miami Heat in Game 6 of the NBA Finals.
The photo was taken by TMZ.com.
The shirt is a takeoff on Shaquille O’Neal telling Kobe Bryant in a video after the two parted ways, “Tell me how my a– tastes!!”
LeBron and Dwyane Wade appeared to mock Nowitzki by coughing and covering their mouths with their shirts, a reference to Nowitzki playing with a 102-degree temperature in Game 4.
