The 1994-95 NBA season was the Mavericks' 15th season in the NBA.[1] With the hopes of repeating history, the Mavericks brought back original coach Dick Motta to restore a team that had complied an awful 24-140 record over the last two years. In the 1994 NBA Draft, the Mavericks selected Jason Kidd out of the University of California with their second pick. Kidd would make an immediate impact as he shared Rookie of The Year honors with Grant Hill of the Detroit Pistons. With Kidd in the backcourt, and Jamal Mashburn and Jim Jackson, the Mavericks had a formidable young foundation as they finished fifth in the Midwest Division with a 36-46 record, which was 12 more wins then their previous two seasons combined.
