About the Dallas Mavericks
Founded in 1980, the Dallas Mavericks have quickly become one of the most valuable NBA franchises -- thanks in part to owner Mark Cuban. Dallas' history began with three consecutive losing seasons, but the Mavericks quickly became a contender -- making the playoffs in each of the next five seasons, and advancing all the way to the Western Conference finals in 1988.
Dallas floundered in the 1990s -- until two Mavericks franchise icons came to Dallas. The Mavericks made shrewd draft day trades in 1998, and acquired eventual NBA MVP Dirk Nowitzki in a draft day trade with the Milwaukee Bucks, and changed Dallas' franchise fortunes forever.
Just two years later, avid Mavericks fan and internet mogul Mark Cuban purchased the Mavericks -- and quickly became one of the most controversial and popular owners in all of sports. Dallas has been a powerhouse contender ever since the turn of the century, and upset the Miami Heat in the 2011 NBA Finals to claim the franchise's first and only NBA title to date.
