    And the hits just keep coming.

    One day after the Dallas Mavericks rallied from 15 points down in Game 4 to go up 3-1 in the NBA Western Finals we heard from Kayo Starr and his “Mavs on a Mission.”

    Now, as Mavericks Nation basks in the afterglow of the Western Conference title we can smooth out to “Champion Bound” by J-Kid.

    Put ‘em together and we might just have a champio… Must. Not. Jinx. This.

    Anyway, this one, too, pretty much runs down the roster with a little lyrical love for each player, called out by name, and it still manages to clock in at less then two minutes. Impressive.

    OK, so now we’ve rocked a rap-infused tribute song and one swinging a hip-hop backbeat, but I'm not hearing any country-western and rock ‘n’ roll offerings. Where y'at?

    Let’s hear from you, Mavs fans.

    And I have an idea: Hey boss-man, how about a little online vote for the fan favorite?
