DeShawn Stevenson claimed before the beginning of the 2011 NBA Finals that his feud with LeBron James, stemming back to his time with the Washington Wizards, was over. Then, he went out and lobbed thinly-veiled shots at James, including one that suggested he "checked out" in Game 4. After the Dallas Mavericks finished off the Heat in Game 6 on Sunday, Stevenson apparently wore this shirt to celebrate afterwards.

The shirt says "Hey LeBron! How's My Dirk taste?" It's a reference to two things. First, it's a homage to Shaquille O'Neal's famous rap when he told Kobe Bryant to "tell me how my a** tastes." Secondly, it's a reference to when LeBron's friend Jay-Z recorded a rap song comparing Stevenson to Soulja Boy during the 2008 Playoffs, dismissing him as not being worthy enough to criticize.

It took several years, but Stevenson finally got his revenge. Clearly, he's not about to serve that dish quietly.
