Dirk Nowitzki, Mark Cuban and Brian Cardinal Continue Tour, Bring NBA Trophy to The Loon

Dirk Nowitzki and the Larry O'Brien Trophy at The Loon
After stopping off at the LIV nightclub in Miami Beach on Sunday night (where Mark Cuban reportedly dropped $110,000 on drinks), the Larry O'Brien Trophy handed to the Mavericks night for winning the NBA Championship continued its whirlwind tour last night, as NBA Finals MVP Dirk Nowitzki, Mavericks owner Mark Cuban and Brian "The Custodian" Cardinal popped over to McKinney Avenue bar The Loon to continue their celebration.

There, Nowitzki, Cuban and Cardinal posed for pictures with various fans -- and even let them hold the trophy, in some cases.

Among those who got to hold the trophy? Justin Moore, an eight-year vet of tending bar at The Loon and the frontman for area rock outfit Max Cady.

For those of you counting at home, this now makes two local musicians that have been photographed holding the trophy before you have or maybe ever will. The other would be noted area rapper Big Hoodboss, the man behind the weed-and-drank anthem, "I Got It," who was at LIV in Miami on Sunday night and who now has a picture of him holding the trophy serving as his Twitter avatar. (Oak Cliff rapper Lil Twist came close; Twist stood next to his labelmate and mentor Lil Wayne as Weezy held the trophy on Sunday night.)

After the jump, courtesy of Moore, check out a few other pictures from the team and the trophy's visit to The Loon last night. And, for good measure, enjoy a video of the crowd at The Loon belting out Queen's "We Are The Champions," too.

Something tells me Cuban spent less at The Loon than he did at LIV.
Oh, like you wouldn't man-hug Dirk if given the chance...
Dirk and a guy not all that impressed with the Mavericks' accomplishments.
Justin Moore, enjoying, as he puts it, "the perk of working at The Loon for eight years.
