The Dallas Mavericks will receive their 2011 NBA Finals ring tonight before the game against the T-Wolves.
Too bad Tyson Chandler, Deshawn Stevenson and a few others who were so vital to this title will have to settle for receiving their jewelry via snail mail.
Shortly after the Mavs won the title, Mavs owner Mark Cuban hinted he was going to do something radical, or at least different, in regards to this time honored tradition for NBA champions.
Reportedly these things cost $40,000 each. I guess if you can afford it .........
This diamond-encrusted ring is pretty cool, but in terms of radically different ... it appears Cuban went the safe route to appease his players, namely the one named Dirk, and stayed with tradition.
