Mavericks selling socks featuring Mark Cuban taking a leak in a urinal (photo)
After the Dallas Mavericks pulled off a bit of a shocker by upsetting LeBron James and the Miami Heat in the 2011 NBA Finals, Mark Cuban took the Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy on something of a magical mystery tour, bringing along the iconic trophy everywhere he went, even to places where perhaps it should never have been in the first place.
Along with admitting he slept with the trophy on the night the Mavs claimed the NBA title, Cuban also posted a photo to social media which showed him on a private jet, stogie in his mouth, with the trophy seated right beside him. Another image (above) surfaced of Cuban crashed out with the trophy serving as his quasi-bedtime security object.
But perhaps the most unseemly of places that Cuban visited with the trophy in tow is the now-infamous image of the Mavericks owner relieving himself in a urinal while cradling the championship hardware in one arm.
And now, to commemorate that bizarre moment in championship trophy history, the Mavericks now are selling socks that feature an image of Cuban’s act of urinary multitasking.
Only in America. And as far as billionaire owners of American sports franchises, only the always-outrageous Mark Cuban.
Sadly for the Mavericks, unless the team can make a drastic turnaround in its opening-round series with the Houston Rockets, socks memorializing Cuban’s urinal hijinks will be about as close as the organization will get to the trophy this season.
