A Brief History
Founded in 1980 by businessmen Don Carter and Norm Sonju, the Dallas Mavericks were named for the iconic James Garner-starring TV show, Maverick. Spurned by their first-ever draft pick, UCLA star Kiki Vandeweghe (who went on to star with the Denver Nuggets), the Mavericks built their franchise around Brad Davis, Rolando Blackman, Jay Vincent and Mark Aguirre and within just a couple of years, the expansion team was a major player in the NBA. In 1984, the Mavericks earned their first post-season bid and took out the Supersonics before bowing out to the Magic Johnson-led Los Angeles Lakers. Two years later, the Mavericks would advance all the way to the Conference Finals.
The 1990s were the dark ages for the Mavs. After making the playoffs in 1990, they wouldn’t get back to the post-season for eleven years despite the presence of Jason Kidd (Rookie of the Year in 1995) and Jim Jackson. In 2000, EVERYTHING changed in Dallas. Outspoken billionaire and one-time Presidential candidate H. Ross Perot sold the franchise to Mark Cuban. Brash, aggressive and brilliant, Cuban immediately set about changing the culture of the lowly Mavericks. Almost overnight, Dallas became THE place free agents wanted to sign. With a Big Three consisting of Michael Finley, Steve Nash and Dirk Nowitzki, Dallas soared back to contention, making the playoffs 12 straight years.
In 2005-06, the Mavericks fought their way through the Western Conference and earned the franchise’s first ever berth in the NBA Finals where they’d lose to the Dwayne Wade/Shaquille O’Neal-powered Miami Heat. Five seasons later, with Dirk Nowitzki playing lights-out basketball alongside Jason Terry, Jason Kidd and Tyson Chandler, the Mavs would avenge the 2006 loss by defeating the favored Heat in a six-game series.
Ball Night Redemption
After missing more than one third of the team’s games in 2012, Dirk Nowitzki was again healthy and ready to lead a rebuilt Dallas roster. This rebuild was successful, with the Mavs making it to the Playoffs in 2014 but ultimately losing in the first round to the Spurs. Critics may lament the lack of big time defenders on this Mavericks team, but there’s no doubting their ability to score – for the 2014-15, expect the Mavericks to come back with a Playoff vengeance. With Nowitzki, Montae Ellis, and Chandler Parsons, the Mavs have firepower all over the court. Get out to the beautiful American Airlines Arena to watch the explosive Mavericks make a run for the post-season. Save on every ticket, every day with ScoreBig.
