In the first home game of the Western Conference Finals for the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks, one of the biggest and brightest stars in Texas football’s program appeared in star junior running back Bijan Robinson. Former five-star recruit and Heisman contender Bijan was spotted at the Mavs’ American Airlines Center in Dallas over the weekend attending Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals against the Golden State Warriors.
And there was another big football star that Bijan had seen hanging out and chatting at that Mavs game at the American Airlines Center. Former Texas Tech Red Raider and Kansas City Chiefs superstar quarterback Patrick Mahomes, along with Dallas Cowboys Stud linebacker and former Penn State Nittany Lion Micah Parsons, were seen chatting to Bijan at the game.
But that wasn’t necessarily the biggest thing Bijan was seen with on social media over the weekend. It was also noted on social media on May 22 that Bijan was handed the game jersey of Warriors superstar point guard Stephen Curry.
Well, we don’t really have any concrete reports of Steph Bijan handing over his jersey from Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals against the Mavs, but that came straight from Robinson’s Snapchat.

This generally seemed to be going to be a big night for Bijan, between hanging out with the likes of Mahomes and Parsons and uncovering some Steph playoff memorabilia.
It will be interesting to see if Bijan actually got Steph’s Game 3 playoff jersey for good. That appears to be the case from what he’s shown on Snapchat and the word on social media.
But there was another Warriors player who gave away his jersey to a soccer star after that game. Draymond Green was seen gifting his game jersey to former South Carolina Gamecock and San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel after the conclusion of Game 3.
In addition, Bijan, Mahomes and company unfortunately did not see the Mavs win Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals on May 22nd. Dallas is now 3-0 down against the Warriors in the series after the 109-100 loss to round out the weekend.
This seemed to be an experience Bijan will not soon forget. It’s great to hang out with big NFL stars like Mahomes and Parsons. Not to mention the fact that he at least got a picture with Steph’s game jersey, if not all of it.
