Dallas Mavericks 2013 Season
The 2013 Dallas Mavericks may not look like the 2011 version of the squad that won the NBA Championship and their collective beard length may be longer than any team in the Mark Cuban era (the players have vowed to grow out their facial hair until the team gets above .500), but they clearly aren't giving up on postseason play just yet. Since Cuban purchased a majority of the stake in the Dallas Mavericks from H. Ross Perot Jr. in 2000, the team has won two Division titles, two Conference Championships, and one NBA Championship. Currently sitting in 11th place in the Western Conference standings, the Mavs need Dirk Nowitzki healthy, more scoring from OJ Mayo and their sixth man Vince Carter, and leadership from their young starting point guard Darren Collison in order to have a chance at a 2013 NBA Playoff berth
