Sneak preview of Mavs on Letterman

CBS released a preview of the Mavericks reading the top 10 list for tonight's Late Show with David Letterman a few hours before the show aired.

Dirk Nowitzki and seven teammates, plus coach Rick Carlisle and owner Mark Cuban took part via satellite from the team's practice court in Dallas earlier today. The subject was good things about winning the title.

Shawn Marion got it started with No. 10: "I don't have to sit here and lie about how winning isn't important."

Jason Terry gave No. 3: "Now I can ask Mark Cuban for a raise."

Then Cuban said: "If you thought I was cocky and obnoxious before -- get ready."

Nowitzki was No. 1.

The other players were J.J. Barea, Rodrigue Beaubois, Brian Cardinal, Tyson Chandler and Caron Butler.
