The Dallas Mavericks are an American professional basketball team based in Dallas, Texas. They are members of the Southwest Division of the Western Conference in the National Basketball Association (NBA). The Mavericks began playing in the NBA as an expansion team in the 1980–81 season. In their inaugural season, they posted a win-loss record of 15–67.

From 1983 to 1990, the Mavericks, led by key players including Mark Aguirre, Brad Davis and Rolando Blackman, made the postseason six out of seven times, appearing in the Conference Finals in 1988. In 1990, the Mavericks reached the playoffs for the only time in the 1990s, for the rest of the decade they bottomed out with an 11–71 record in the 1992–93 season and a 13–69 mark in the 1993–94 season.

The Mavericks returned to prominence in the 2000s. Leading by the trio of Dirk Nowitzki, Michael Finley and Steve Nash, they returned to the playoffs in 2001 and to the Conference Finals in 2003. With Nash and Finley left in 2004 and 2005 respectively, Nowitzki emerged as the team's leader, leading the Mavericks to their first NBA Finals appearance in 2006, only to lose to the Miami Heat. After a series of early exits from the playoffs, the Mavericks returned to the NBA Finals again in 2011 and won their first NBA Championship.

The Mavericks have played 34 seasons, and advanced to the playoffs in 20 of those seasons. They have won three division titles, have been conference champions two times and have won one NBA Championship. Their overall record is 1435 wins and 1368 losses.
