In Ohio, the home state of the Miami Heat’s LeBron James, Governor John Kasich has issued a resolution praising the Dallas Mavericks’ 105-95 Sunday title victory over James’ Heat.
Kasich’s resolution recognized the Mavericks “loyalty, integrity and teamwork” while also making them honorary Ohioans.
The resolution singled out MVP Dirk Nowitzki for his decision to re-sign with the Mavericks in the summer of 2010 and forego his free agency, “thus remaining loyal to the team, city and fans for whom he played his entire career.”
The declaration also states “the proud city of Cleveland and the entire state of Ohio share in the excitement of Dallas Mavericks fans everywhere.”
