The Dallas Mavericks have only been around since 1980 and so lack the storied history of the Bulls, Celtics, and Lakers. However, since the 2000-2001 season, Dallas has not missed the playoffs once. Last season, the team beat the popular Miami Heat to win its first ever NBA championship. Between 2001 and 2011, the Mavericks had the second-best record in the NBA with 575 wins and 245 losses.
