The Dallas Mavericks destruction of the Miami Heat was complete following their 105-95 Game 6 victory on Sunday evening. While Mavs fans partied in Dallas, the team had a big night of celebrating their crowning as NBA champions at Club LIV at the Fontainebleau Hotel in South Beach alongside celebs such as Lil Wayne. The Mavs returned to Love Field Monday morning with thousands of fans lined up and waiting to cheer their arrival. Owner Mark Cuban was first to emerge from the plane followed by NBA Finals MVP Dirk Nowitzki, Jason 'JET' Terry and Tyson Chandler.
The next step in celebrating the franchise's first NBA title is to have a parade. The Mavs confirmed that the parade will take place on Thursday morning at 10:00. The parade will begin at the Dallas Convention Center, heading west on Young St, heading north on Houston St., west on Continental and north on Victory, ending at the corner of Victory and Olive St. Fans may begin lining up behind the barricades beginning at 7:00am. Fans are encouraged to bring plenty of water and wear sunscreen. Mavs owner Mark Cuban also announced that he is footing the bill for the parade.
The parade will feature owner Mark Cuban, founding owner Donald Carter, President of Basketball Operations Donnie Nelson, head coach Rick Carlisle and all of the 2011 NBA champion Dallas Mavericks players. At the conclusion of the parade, a special season ticket holder-only event will be held inside American Airlines Center. If you cannot sneak out of work to experience the celebration in person, FOX Sports Southwest and 103.3 ESPN Radio will broadcast the event.
