It's only a matter of time before an active NBA player comes out as gay ... so says Dallas Mavericks
owner Mark Cuban
who tells TMZ he would be honored if the player was a member of his team.
Cuban called in to "TMZ Live" moments ago to discuss how Magic Johnson's support for his gay son will impact professional sports.
Mark also acknowledges a current NBA player who was raised by 2 moms -- and tells us how he's helping to change the culture in the league.
TMZ has obtained the 911 call made the night Dallas Mavericks
star DeShawn Stevenson
was arrested for public intoxication -- and according to the caller, Stevenson couldn't even talk straight.
The caller tells the 911 operator, Stevenson was "extremely loud and mumbling" as he and another man banged on doors at an apartment complex, even though they didn't live there.
As we previously reported, Stevenson was arrested for public intoxication in Irving, Texas Tuesday night after officers felt he was a "danger to himself and others. "
Stevenson was eventually released after posting the $475 bail.
guard DeShawn Stevenson
was arrested last night for public intoxication in Texas ... TMZ has confirmed.
Law enforcement sources tell us, police received a call about some drunk guy wandering around an apartment comlpex in Irving, TX last night -- and when cops showed up, they found Stevenson ... who said he was lost.
Stevenson -- who does not live in the apartment complex -- then flunked a field sobriety test ... and was arrested for public intoxication.
star Shawn Marion
is gonna be busy next month -- because we're told, he's shooting a pilot for a reality TV show ... right around the same time the Mavs crush Miami in the NBA finals (if there is a God).
It's tentatively called "The Ladies in My Life
" -- and big surprise ... it's all about Shawn and the important women in his day-to-day ... including his mom, sisters and publicist.
One of the featured family members is Shawn's twin sister Shawnett -- who's 6-feet tall and can DUNK a basketball!!
Oh, we almost forgot -- the show is being filmed in the NBA star's 14,000 square foot Dallas mansion.
All it's missing now ... A CHAMPIONSHIP RING, BABY!
's fiance LaLa Vazquez
has released a statement claiming racial taunts and violent threats from Dallas Mavericks
fans incited her at last night's NBA playoff game:"Obviously the play-off games bring out the best and the worst in fans but what happened on Monday night with the racial slurs/threats, verbal attacks on my son and physical attacks to myself by irate fans was unacceptable. The fans were totally out of control.
What the cameras captured was me defending myself and didn't show the abuse that was taking place."
Footage shot at last night's game showed LaLa cursing and getting hostile as security tried to escort her out of the stands.
The Mavs and the Nugs are set to face off again tomorrow night.
Devean George and his overprotective bud were pissed at TMZ cameras last night outside Opera -- yeah, it probably would have helped if we didn't keep calling him "Corey," as in L.A. Clipper Corey Maggette.
