Dallas Mavericks Championship Parade Date Set

The Mavericks have confirmed that their NBA championship parade will be held in Dallas Thursday, June 16. The start time and precise route will be announced Tuesday, but it is expected to run from City Hall to Mark Cuban’s dreamed parade destination at Victory Plaza, where fans swarmed late Sunday night to celebrate the Mavericks’ first championship and the city’s first since the Stars won their only Stanley Cup in 1999.

The city and their team had to celebrate the title Sunday night over a thousand miles apart, but the Mavs returned home around noon at Love Field to a crowd of over 2000 cheering fans. After their team plane landed beneath a water cannon salute, players streamed out of the plane looking sleepy but excited.

DeShawn Stevenson wore a t-shirt that said “HEY LEBRON! HOW’S MY DIRK TASTE?” Dirk Nowitzki emerged from the plane with his Bill Russell Finals MVP trophy and took a victory lap, high fiving hundreds of fans through a fence for several minutes. Players posed with the championship trophy and fans for nearly an hour before heading home for some well deserved sleep.
