Dirk Nowitzki has no time for losers

Under a blistering sun (as usual) in Dallas on Thursday, the Dallas Mavericks celebrated their NBA championship in front of an estimated 250,000 fans along their championship parade. Mark Cuban grinned, Tyson Chandler rode with his kids, Brian Cardinal got to celebrate being the Brian Cardinal of a championship team. But perhaps funniest was Dirk Nowitzki, singing a tune to the crowd.

Well, singing may be a strong word for it.

 

Nowitzki may be the happiest guy on the planet right now. In fact, all these Mavericks seem to embody joy.

Perhaps that's what's best about the Mavericks winning the Finals. There's no self-evident "Well, yeah, we expected to win" like there would have been from Los Angeles or Miami. There's no quiet reserved respect for the moment. There's just an egregious amount of celebrating and joy, as there should be when a team wins a championship. 

And terrible singing. Lots of terrible singing.

So spending a night in a jail cell is the right way to celebrate?  Do you even know the players on your own team?  Hint: last name Stevenson, has a giant tattoo of Abe Lincoln on his neck, and is a total idiot.

My previous commens are directed at  who wrote the stupid comment first by blasting Moore for his great blog and suggesting the Mavs are not doing it right, which as we all know they are doing it PERFECTLY!
I guess when you hit reply to comment here it does not tree under the comment you are replying to and shows up like a new comment.

Lol. You moron. The rest of the world and all of media are PRAISING the Mavericks for knowing how to celebrate right.
You haven't a clue as your comments clearly show.

Garfield:  Acutally I hadn't seen that it was a blog, and you are correct in that I got here from the main website.  If the link was clearly marked I would have known prior to clicking and would have judged the piece differently.  I will retract my statement and place the blame on sportsline for not making that clear.  On CNN and other websites they clearly indicate which links are opinions/editorials or blogs.

I've read a few of Matt Moore's entries..if they are all blog entries that will explain a few things.  I don't understand why cbs is linking to blogs however.

Dude stfu.  The guy got arrested for no reason.  I'm sorry I don't remember him driving, pizzing on the sidewalk or using foul language.  I believe someon called the police on him becasue he was walking funny.  Are you a sour Heat fan?  i give you props for posting becasuse Heat fans hasve been non existant.  Proof you have no real fans.

"No room for Lebron, because we are the champions of the World!"

I think The Mavs should change loser in this case. Why disrespect losers when you have Lebron who deserves it far more? He believes everyone, but him are losers, right?

Nowitzki may be the happiest guy on the planet right now. In fact, all these Mavericks seem to embody joy.
And we all share in it. He saved the world from Lebron and their arrogance. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Another dumb Matt Moore opinion dressed up as an "article" of "journalism."  I always thought journalism was supposed to be the presentation of objective facts, not opinion pieces.  Opinion peices are supposed to have EDITORIAL written above them and not be posted as news.
It's, uh, a blog. I know you found the link to this blog on the main CBSsports.com site, but a blog is meant to express straightforward opinions and whatever else is on the top of a person's mind.

Btw, you can also tell that it's a blog based on the weird formattting of the page at the fact that the URL says "blog...."



A PROFESSIONAL team is used to winning and the players don't get drunk and arrested 3 days afterwards.  Everyone celebrates in moderation when winning, but a loser just doesn't know when to stop because they're not used to winning.
I have a feeling that you meant to post on this blog instead: http://eyeonbasketball.blogs.cbsspo

rts.com/mcc/blogs/entry/22748484/30

062954 . You know, the one on Stevenson?

In any case, I'm fine with how the rest of the Mavericks are celebrating. They're not belittling the Heat or behaving condescendingly to other teams. They are celebrating about themselves; no insults directed at anyone else (aside from Stevenson in which... once again, hit the link that I provided you above).
