A month ago the Dallas Mavericks raised their championship banner. Now about a month later they are receiving their rings. The Minnesota Timberwolves where the opponent in town .This was planned because former Mav J.J. Barea now plays for Minnesota. As for the game the Timberwolves won but that wasn’t what this night was all about.
Why the delay you ask? Well you see the NBA was in a lockout so owners could not talk with players. So Mark Cuban wanted to wait after the lockout was over to let the players pick out the design.
Mark Cuban paid a total of $1.4 million for the rings that included all 15 players and the entire coaching staff. Each ring was estimated to cost about $40,000.
Check out the picture of the ring below.
As for the ceremony Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle introduced the nine remaining members of the title team. This included star Dirk Nowitzki, Jason Terry and Jason Kidd. Also on hand to receive their rings were J.J. Barea and Peja Stojakovic.

All things being equal, the NBA’s best sixth men would rather be starting, of course. On other teams, there’s a chance they certainly would be. You don’t have to look much further than Jason Terry.
