DALLAS (AP) -- The latest reward for winning the NBA championship for Dirk Nowitzki, Mark Cuban and the Dallas Mavericks is reading the top 10 list on the Late Show with David Letterman.

Nowitzki and seven teammates, plus coach Rick Carlisle and owner Cuban took part Wednesday via satellite from the team's practice court in Dallas. The subject was good things about winning the title. CBS released a preview a few hours before the show aired.

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.
