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.
