We had a photographer out at Love Field, where fans met the 2011 National Basketball Association Champion Dallas Mavericks; a slide show, of course, is forthcomingright here. But one good Friend of Unfair Park was out at the airport and moments ago sent this shot, along with this note: "Cuban put trophy in drivers seat of his car before greeting fans along fence." A nice shot of Dirk and Jet -- and the Larry O'Brien -- emerging from the team plane also follows. Also on the other side, courtesy our Friend: the best T-shirt ever, worn by one Deshawn Stevenson, and council members swarming The German Moses.

As for rumors of the parade taking place Thursday, hold up: City spokesperson Jose Luis Torres tells Unfair Park that the meeting between city officials and Mavs higher-ups isn't scheduled to take place till this afternoon. "Depending on what happens this afternoon," he says, "we'll know a little more." Frank Librio says the city will "probably know for sure late today or tomorrow." A press release will go out as soon as details are finalized.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
