There are groundbreaking Internet pieces and then there is the post that went live on Deadspin today. In the blog post, Mark Cuban is narrating his 1970s rugby party photos from his days at Indiana. Folks, this is why we wake up in the morning. And Cuban doesn't hold back. You want pics of him nearly teabagging a coed? It's there. You want him going 69 on the same coed? Yep, here it is. The guy owns sports culture right now. See why - JUMP!
And the photos keep rolling in. We now have Dirk Nowitzki appearing slightly hammered making his infamous Dirk face before or after his two-handed swig off this soon-to-be most Googled Ace of Spade bottle in history. We've seen estimates from Twitter dorks that these bottles go for $80k in the clubs. Frankly, we could care less. It's more than a case of Summer Shandy so it's expensive. There are also reports that Cuban ordered 100 regular Ace of Spade bottles to keep the party "popping" as the kids call it these days. DRUNK DIRK FACE FULL SHOT! JUMP!
You have no idea how much this makes us smile. Twitter blew up this morning with Miami South Beach poseurs uploading images of the Mavs post-game club party. Cuban carried the trophy. Dirk wore his Euro black rimmed reading glasses. Brian Cardinal was there with his goofy pale self. It was a party. And the best way to rub it in the faces of Miami that the Trophy is going back to Dallas? Buy the biggest damn bottle of Ace of Spade and let the Finals MVP pound it while the cameras snapped. Talent. South Beach. JUMP!
