The Spoils Of Victory: Mavericks Deliver David Letterman’s Top Ten
June 16 / Glenn Davis / SportsGrid
It's customary for NBA, MLB, and NFL champions to make the talk show rounds (see here and here, for example), and last night, several members of the Dallas Mavericks organization scored one of the plum gigs in talk show rounds-making: delivering the nightly Top Ten list on Late Show with David Letterman.
The topic was what you'd expect it to be ("Good Things About Winning the NBA Championship"), and the Late Show team got an impressive group of Mavericks to deliver the items, including Dirk Nowitzki, Mark Cuban, Jason Terry, Rick Carlisle, Tyson Chandler, Shawn Marion, and J.J. Barea. They seemed to enjoy it, too: Nowitzki and Carlisle aren't normally known for lighting up a room, but delivered their lines with gusto.
And while Top Ten lists are hit-or-miss, we thought this one was pretty good. We especially liked that - without giving anything away yet - some of the Mavs got list items specifically tailored to them, Cuban in particular (though Butler's might also be interpreted that way, given he couldn't actually play). And a note to Dirk: we're not sure you want that. Video below.
