The time has finally come. The Dallas Mavericks are set to receive their championship rings on Wednesday night before they play the Timberwolves. After some speculation that Mark Cuban was going to come up with something more unique than rings, he has decided to keep it traditional.  Jason Terry will be receiving two rings — one to keep and a duplicate which he is going to be raffling off.

According to the Dallas Morning News, Terry is going to be selling $10 raffle tickets over a month span.  The winner gets to keep a ring that is exactly like the one the Mavs are receiving and the money will go toward taking the girls’ traveling team he coaches to China.

“We need to raise some funds,” Terry said on Tuesday. “I think that’ll be a great way. And it’ll give a fan a unique experience that they would never have. It’ll be a duplicate Terry ring for some lucky fan.”

Sounds like a good idea for a good cause. As for the ring itself, Terry likened it to one of his children.

“It’s a symbol of what we accomplished. It’s going to be special. We’ve only seen a brief design of it. Once you get it, see it, touch it, hold it. It’s probably like a baby. I got four of those. That’s probably what it’s like.”

Maybe it’s a good thing Cuban stuck with the traditional symbol.  Did he spend $200,000 on each ring like Dirk Nowitzki and Jason Kidd were looking for?  I wouldn’t doubt it.
