Due to that whole NBA lockout thing, some might have forgotten that the Dallas Mavericks won the NBA championship last season.

Mavericks forward Shawn Marion would like to remind everyone that did indeed win the title and that he deserves to be called a World Champion:
“I want y’all to address me like that from now on — world champion,” Marion said.
Marion is upset that the national media has overlooked the defending world champion Mavs and don’t believe they have a chance of winning this season’s title.
“We’ve gotten to the point where everybody started overlooking us and talking about everybody else and I kind of got [upset] about it,” Marion said. “Y’all trying to take something away from us that we’ve worked hard for and we took.
“Everybody on this team has earned the right to be addressed as world champions, so everybody address us like that.”
