Cavaliers Fan to Make Good on Promise, Name Child After Dirk Nowitzki


June 18, 2011

After tweeting that she was going to name her future child after Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki, a Cleveland radio host is going through with her promise, the New York Daily News Reports.

Cherise Navidad, a radio host on Cleveland's Q104 station and a Cavaliers fan, sent the tweet in desperation when the Mavericks were losing to the Heat in Game 6 just because she wanted Dallas to beat the Heat so badly.

Navidad said LeBron James' one-hour television special that announced his move to Miami was "a cruel thing to do."

"When you want someone to beat LeBron so badly, you will do anything," Navidad said.

As most things do on twitter, Navidad's tweet spread — not only to her followers, but to Dallas' followers as well. She said that "Twitter is a binding contract," and she will honor her promise even if it means making her son's middle name Dirk.
