The Dallas Mavericks became a part of the NBA in the 1980-1981 season. The past
thirty odd years has seen some terrific highs for Mavericks fans. They have also
gone on to become the fourth most valuable franchise in the NBA, behind only
the Nicks, Bulls, and Lakers. The Dallas Mavericks won their inaugural NBA title in
2011 and have won two conference titles, in 2006 and 2011. They also have three
division titles to their name. Fans have always bought Dallas Mavericks tickets in high
numbers, with almost every home game being a virtual sell out.
The San Antonio Spurs and Pheonix Suns have been the Mavericks' main rivals over
the years. Dallas Mavericks tickets are always greatly sought after when clashes
against those teams come up. They are usually the match ups that fans look to
when the match list for the new season comes out. The Mavericks have had some
tremendous players who have donned the shirt. This has always kept fans eager to
buy Dallas Mavericks tickets in high quantities. Brad Davis and Rolando Blackman
have both had the honor of their shirt number being retired by the team. Dirk
Nowitzki won the NBA MVP during the 2007 season and Mavericks coach Avery
Johnson won Coach of the Year during the 2006 season. Nowitzki was also a NBA
Finals MVP in the 2011 finals victory over the Miami Heat. There was never a higher
demand for Dallas Mavericks tickets than during those finals. Fans finally got the true
success that they had been aching for over the years.
The Mavericks played at the Reunion Arena from 1980-2001, before moving to the
newly built American Airlines Center for the 2001-2002 season. The stadium cost
over $420 million to build and American Airlines paid $195 million for the naming
rights to the stadium. The American Airlines Center gives the team the ability to sell
around 19,200 Dallas Mavericks tickets for each home game. There is also a standing
capacity of 21,146 in the stadium. The stadium is shared with the NHL's Dallas Stars.
Fans commonly refer to the stadium as "The Hangar".
Dallas Mavericks fans are some of the most passionate in the country. That is why
Dallas Mavericks tickets have always sold in such great numbers. Many fans are
Dallas Mavericks ticket seasonal holders, giving them rights to attend every home
game. For many years people wondered if these great fans would never see true
success. 2011 was a relief to most, as it brought the NBA title that they had yearned
for. It was especially great becasue they had endured 10 losing seasons from 1990-
While 2011-2012 was not as successful as the previous season, the team still made
the playoffs and there were excellent Dallas Mavericks tickets sales. This time they
did not have the squad capable of overcoming the league's best teams and fans will
be hoping that 2011 was not a one off season. While the Lakers, Heat, Spurs, and
Thunder might have better teams than the Mavericks, they will be looking to the
trade period to sign some top class talent for the coming season. Whatever happens,
the fans will show the same passion for the franchise they have always
demonstrated. 34 year old Nowitzki will be hoping for one last NBA Finals
appearance before he hangs up his boots. The 11 times NBA All-Star has been a
major factor in driving fans towards buying Dallas Mavericks tickets.
11-26-12: Mark Cuban’s group has tried to hold the fort down while their star player, Dirk Nowitzki heals from off season surgery. Hitting the road at 7-7 isn’t where they would like to be but with a brand new roster and the maturation in the game of OJ Mayo, Dallas can’t complain for two long. With games against the Sixers and Bulls this week, it will be interesting to see how they do. The Mavs gave a glimpse of their offensive potential with a win against the Knicks last week avenging their loss in New York earlier in the season.
