Entering the 2011 season, the Dallas Mavericks franchise and its roster of veterans had never tasted the glory of an NBA championship. Fueled by their intense hunger to win, and bonded by their collective pursuit of success, the Mavericks finally reached the pinnacle of their sport. Led by NBA Finals MVP Dirk Nowitzki, Dallas upset the Miami Heat to complete a stirring drive to the 2011 NBA crown.
After three first round playoff exits in the previous four years, many underestimated the Mavericks when the season began. But with a quiet determination, Dallas once again emerged as contenders in the West with 57 regular season victories. In the postseason, they overcame the Portland Trail Blazers before toppling the two-time defending champion Los Angeles Lakers in a stunning sweep, and went on to defeat the young Oklahoma City Thunder in a thrilling Western Conference finals. In the NBA Finals, the Mavericks avenged their 2006 defeat to Miami, as Nowitzki, their long-time superstar, carried his team past Miami’s celebrated Big 3 to finally capture the elusive championship.
On this action-packed DVD, you’ll relive the Mavericks' march to the title that was filled with dramatic comebacks and memorable performances. With exclusive interviews, exciting highlights, behind-the-scenes footage and riveting bonus features, you’ll have a courtside seat as Dallas’s storybook season comes to life.

I really appreciated the time they spent on the Mavs backstory and struggles between Game 5 and Game 6 of the Finals on this dvd. Just when you think they are rushing thru the Heat/Mavs series there is pause. At this time there is a good 10+ minutes dedicated to the buildup of the Mavs franchise and all the heartache and turmoil that accompanied them prior to moving on to Game 6 in the film. They really took the time in such an appropriate manner in the dvd to set the stage for the Game 6 victory which I felt was a good choice.
I also felt that the due diligence on the previous playoff series prior to playing the Heat paid off nicely.Read more ›
One of the most resonating images I can remember from a championship DVD is that of Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward bawling his eyes out after losing in the AFC Championship in what everyone thought was running back Jerome Bettis' last year. Of course, as the story goes he stuck around for one more year and they finally succeeded in getting him a championship. It was such a small moment, and probably didn't mean much to the average fan, but to the diehard Steelers fan this made that moment with the Lombardi trophy held high that much sweeter.
As a diehard Mavs fan, I expected this DVD to provide some of those same small moments. To remind me of the treacherous path that wound its way to the Larry O'Brien trophy. Unfortunately, this was about as bland and generic as a season recap could be. Worthy of nothing more than a team just simply making the playoffs. These championship seasons are few and far between for most sports fans and it is difficult not to feel cheated out of 15+ dollars along with the joy of reliving these moments years from now.
This is not to say this is some sort of shabby wedding video with awkward edits and shoddy camera work. Production values do exist (mostly due to the access to so much footage), and the basic framework of the playoff run is established. So despite everything, it is a must own for the diehard MFFL's out there. But that is more a result of a lack of competition than any statement about quality.
I'm a huge Mavs fan but after watching this, all I can say is "There's nothing to see here". Buy a championship shirt or hat. You'll get more from those than from this video.
