The NBA Dribbled Out

Deshawn Stevenson spoke with Sports Radio Interviews and Deadspin has the enlightening transcript.
Among the variety of subjects broached: his arrest post Finals victory, where the “How My Dirk Taste” t-shirt he wore on the team plane the day after they won game 6 and in the Dallas victory parade came from; he even opens up about his strange Abraham Lincoln neck tattoo pictured above (psst-Agent Zero stole his original idea). It’s interesting because he comes off as more well-spoken then I originally expected after all his idiotic trash-talking about Lebron during the series—neck tattoos certainly didn’t help his cause. Check out some excerpts below:

Do you want to clear up what happened with the quick arrest following winning the championship: “People don’t understand. I was going to a party with all of my friends  in an apartment. I left. I’m walking down the street … and I guess  because I have tattoos a cop told me to come here, asked me what I was  doing. I told him what I was doing and he told me to go by the cop car.  I’m thinking that he’s going to ask me a couple questions and I’m going  to go home. He comes, puts me in handcuffs and I go to jail for four  hours. … I asked him what I was going to jail for and he said public  intoxication.”
Did he give you a Breathalyzer or anything?: “This is the thing, I asked for it. I asked for the Breathalyzer and he wouldn’t give it to me.”
What was he thinking as he’s sleeping on the floor in jail?: “I really didn’t think about that because I knew I didn’t do anything  wrong. Sometimes when you get put in bad situations, you think, ‘Why did  I do that? Why was I driving drunk? Why did I have this? Why did I have  that?’ This is like, I’m walking down the street. Sometimes people  stereotype you. I’ve been like that all my life. I think it makes you  stronger and understand where you came from.”
Where did the “How Does My Dirk Taste?” T-shirt come from?: “After we won the championship, we was going to the locker room and I  saw a guy with a shirt. We had the championship shirts and he wanted it.  I said, ‘I’ll switch out if you give me that one.’ So we switched  shirts. I didn’t tell nobody I had it. The next day we woke up and I  wore it on the plane and to the parade.”

What’s up with the 5-dollar bill tattoo on his neck?: “I was going to get Martin Luther King and I told Gilbert Arenas. You  should never tell nobody your idea. That summer, he came back and got  it. So I didn’t know who to get. I got Abraham Lincoln because he freed  the slaves. I just had Abraham Lincoln and, from a distance, everybody  kept saying, ‘Who is that?’ So I put the five-dollar bill so everybody  would stop asking me.”
