Dallas Mavericks Logo - Design and History

 Image

The Dallas Mavericks are one of the hottest teams in the NBA. For the last decade, they have been one of the most consistent teams in the NBA, having reached the playoffs almost every year. They lost to the Miami Heat in the 2005-2006 playoffs. They are owned by the often controversial Internet billionaire, Mark Cuban. The team has a lot of star power with top players like Dirk Nowitski, Jason Kidd and Josh Howard. 

The Dallas Mavericks were admitted into the NBA in 1980-1981. They paid a $12 million entry fee to join the NBA. The team's name came from the 1957-1962 TV western Maverick, as James Garner played the namesake character, and was one of the original team owners.

The Mavericks logo consists of a half-moon and a half-horse placed on a shield. The hair of the horse is nicely arranged to look like a basketball. As with most logos from Texas, the Texas star is seen at the bottom of the logo.
