In what could have been a somewhat awkward moment for both, Kanye West and Dwyane Wade bumped into each other at the Louis Vuitton fashion show in Paris this week. What made it potentially awkward is the Mavericks hat Kanye was wearing, which he did his best to make sure Dwayne Wade didn’t see. Pics below tell the story.
It’s been a wild ride this past month here at MavsMag. We officially (re-)launched during the OKC Thunder series and held on for a wild ride through the NBA Finals. It was a fun ride that will not be soon forgotten.
Looking ahead, I wanted to update what’s ahead for the blog during the Summer.
This video was probably put together by a bitter Cavs fan, but it’s pure gold.
It’s going to be a wild week for the Mavericks. Dirk Nowitzki and Mark Cuban will be presenting David Letterman’s Top Ten list on Wednesday night before they head out for the victory parade on Thursday morning.
It’s the life of a champ.
The best price I’ve found online is from Amazon.com, where you can pre-order it for only $17.99. That’s a good deal compared to the $24.99 that it’s going for from the official NBA Store.
Note: Please read our disclosure statement in regards to purchases made through the Amazon links above. I bought my DVD from Amazon and have always had a great experience shopping with them.
Outside of North Texas, most of the country is not talking about how the Dallas Mavericks won the NBA Finals and are now the 2011 NBA Champions (that’s so fun to write). The main focus has been on how LeBron and the rest of the Heat choked and lost.
Collin Cowherd this past Friday said that the Mavericks would be looked at as one of the worst Championship teams in NBA history. He said they play average defense at best and had an easier road to the Finals than Miami.
While this is not necessarily the official announcement, Earl K Sneed just tweeted some details about the Mavs upcoming victory parade:
He’s one of the official bloggers from the Mavericks, so I’m sure he wouldn’t tweet that if it wasn’t when it’s going to take place.
So, who’s going?
The Dallas Mavericks on the verge of doing something they have never done before. They are just one win away from the NBA Title. They come into Miami for tonight’s potential closeout Game 6 having won two consecutive games and three of the last four games of the series.
You could say they have momentum on their side, but that’s not what Heat guard Mario Chalmers thinks. He still feels like the momentum is on Miami’s side. DallasNews.com has this quote from him:
Q: Has the momentum gotten away from you guys in the series, you feel?
Chalmers: No, not at all. We’re going back home, so I think we’ve got all the momentum. Two games left and we’re desperate.
If momentum means losing two games in a row, the Dallas Mavericks want no part of it.
Tim MacMahon has a piece up on ESPNDallas.com detailing what both Dirk and the Hollywood Brothers had to say. Here’s what Wade had to say:
“We never said Dirk’s name. I think he’s not the only one in the world who can get sick or have a cough. We just had fun with the cameras being right in our face about the blowup of the incident, and it held to be true. You blew it up.”
These teams are starting to have a real disdain for each other.
Talk about classless. Two of the superstars in the NBA have proven they are really just little boys in grown men’s bodies. Take a look at this video from CBS 11. You’ll have to turn up the volume to hear the Hollywood Brothers laughing about it:
I didn’t think I could dislike Dwyane Wade more. I was wrong.
