The 2010–11 Dallas Mavericks season was the 31st season of the franchise in the National Basketball Association (NBA).

This season would prove to be the most successful season for the Mavericks. In the playoffs, the Mavericks defeated the Portland Trail Blazers in six games in the First Round, then swept the defending two-time NBA champion Los Angeles Lakers in four games in the Semifinals, before defeating the Oklahoma City Thunder in five games in the Conference Finals to reach the NBA Finals for the first time since 2006. In the NBA Finals, the Mavericks faced off against the Miami Heat in a rematch of the 2006 NBA Finals, where they lost to the Heat in six games, and the Heat were led by their Big Three of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh.

The Mavericks would go on to defeat the Heat in six games in the NBA Finals, winning their first NBA championship in franchise history.[1]

The Mavericks' championship was the first major sports championship in the Dallas-Fort Worth area since the Dallas Stars in 1999, and the first title in Mavericks franchise history. The Mavericks became the third team to win an NBA title in the state of Texas, joining the Houston Rockets and San Antonio Spurs. The Mavericks are also the third team to win a major sports championship in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, joining the Dallas Cowboys and the Dallas Stars. The Mavericks championship parade was held on June 16, 2011 in downtown Dallas.

Transactions[edit]

Summary[edit]

In the 2010 NBA Draft the Mavericks got only 1 pick. At no. 50 they picked the Nigerian Center Solomon Alabi. But he was traded directly to the Toronto Raptors for a future second-round pick and cash considerations.

The Mavericks sent $3 million to the Memphis Grizzlies to acquire the rights for Shooting Guard Dominique Jones.

Mavericks free agent Dirk Nowitzki agreed to a 4-year deal worth $80 million to stay with the Mavericks.[2]

Brendan Haywood also decided to stay with the Mavericks as he signed a new 6-year deal worth $55 million. His sixth and last year in this contract is however not fully guaranteed.[3]

Center Ian Mahinmi signed a 2-year deal worth the veteran minimum starting at $850.000.[4]

On July 13, the Mavericks officially signed rookie Dominique Jones.[5]

The Mavericks and the Charlotte Bobcats agreed on a trade that sent Erick Dampier, Matt Carroll and Eduardo Nájera to the Bobcats, while the Bobcats sent Tyson Chandler and Alexis Ajinca to the Mavericks.[6]

On August 12 Tim Thomas signed a 1-year deal to the veteran minimum ($1.35 million).[7] He was at the Mavericks previous season but left the team to take care of his ill wife. Afterwards he announced that the illness his wife suffered will prevent him from playing for the Mavericks.[8]

Playoffs[edit]

The Mavericks' playoff run began with a six-game first round series against the Portland Trail Blazers. In the conference semi-finals, the Mavericks swept the two-time defending champion Los Angeles Lakers. The series against the Lakers also birthed the Mavericks Royal Blue-Out games in the AAC, with almost all fans wearing T-shirts that read "The Time is Now". In the Western Conference Finals against the Oklahoma City Thunder, the Mavericks won the last three games with fourth-quarter comebacks to win their second Western Conference Championship and earn a trip to the NBA Finals for the first time since 2006. Following a disappointing Game One, the Mavericks pulled the biggest comeback in NBA Finals history in Game Two to even the series at a game each. After a loss in Game Three, the Mavericks won the last two games in Dallas to take a 3–2 series lead heading to Game Six in Miami. The Mavericks won Game Six; with that win, the Mavs became NBA Champions for the first time.
