Mavericks To Receive 2011 Championship Rings Tonight

The 2011 NBA Champion Dallas Mavericks will receive their world championship rings in a brief ceremony prior to tonight’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves, according to ESPN.com.

"We've only seen a brief design of it," Mavericks guard Jason Terry said. "Once you get it and see and hold it and touch it, it's probably like a baby -- you know I got four of those -- so that's probably what it's like."

Mavericks owner Mark Cuban paid a reported total of $1.4 million for the rings. 15 players and the entire coaching staff from last years squad, including now-Timberwolves player J.J. Barea and the retired sharpshooter Peja Stojakovic, will receive a ring in the pre-game ceremony.

Cuban reportedly waited until after the lockout to design the rings in order to consult with veteran players, Dirk Nowitzki, and Jason Kidd.  The rings have an estimated value of $40,000 each.
