Dallas Mavericks Celebrate First NBA Championship, Plan Championship Parade

Twelve hours after they won the 2011 NBA Championship, the Dallas Mavericks are finally on a plane headed back to Dallas. They partied through the night and are expected to arrive, Larry O'Brien Trophy in hand, at Love Field between 11:45-12:30. The long awaited Mavericks Parade 2011 is in the works, but at this point all we know is that Dallas and Cuban expect it to be next week, the week of June 20 and that Cuban has said that he will pay for the event. 

In the meantime Cuban, Terdema Ussery, Donnie Nelson, Rick Carlisle, Finals MVP Dirk Nowitzki, Jason Kidd and the rest of the Mavs veterans can let their accomplishment sink in. After national analyst predictions that they would be swept in the first round by the Blazers, after Charles Barkley shocked everyone by predicting that the Mavericks would beat the Lakers - and then was correct, after Las Vegas favored the Heat to win the Finals even when Dallas had won two straight and led the series 3-2, they're bringing home the first NBA Championship to Dallas.
