Mavs get their Rings!

On January 25, 2012 the Dallas Maverick Champs finally got their rings. It was truly a night to remember. The Mavericks were  playing the Minnesota Timberwolves in Dallas that night which allowed Jose Juan Barea the chance to be apart of the ceremony. Also the newly retired, Peja Stojakovic came to be apart of the ceremony. All that was missing was Corey Brewer, Tyson Chandler, Caron Butler, and DeShawn Stevenson who will all be presented with their rings in the near future.

Mark Cuban announced each individual player as they approached the table to receive their Championship Ring. The ring is truly spectacular, and was made by Jonstens. Mark Cuban is said to have spent 1.4 million on the Mavericks first ever title rings for the 2010-2011 Championship. The rings contain 250 diamonds and is 10 karats weighing 92 grams. The top of the ring says “World Champions” and contains the current Mavs logo made with many diamonds that include, as Jonstens states “31 princess-cut diamonds — one for each year the Dallas Mavericks have been in Dallas and the NBA.” The team motto, “The Time is Now,” team name, the Larry O’Brien trophy, and year 2011 is on one side of the ring. On the other side the player’s last name and their jersey number. The Mavs wanted to honor their first owner Don Carter so inside the ring you will see the Dallas Mavericks first logo, along with the record of each series in the playoffs and the opponent’s name. Dirk Nowitzki, Jason Kidd, and Jason Terry did an amazing job with helping design this ring along with Mark Cuban and Jonstens.
