I've Got Mine, Do You?
I just love how that looks! Dallas Mavericks 2011 NBA Champions! Panini put out this nice box set for the Mavs, so I had to get one. I'm not sure if they've done this before, or did they just do it for the hometown Mavs. (Panini's headquarters are down the road in Irving.)
Mavs Big 3, Nowitzki, Kidd & Terry. The set has the same layout for all 18 player and 1 coach card.
Most of the backs show the player posing with their championship trophy. Some of them just show a repeat of the front photo.
All 4 of these guys started at some point during the season and were major factors for the Mavs this season.
These guys were the invaluable role players. Caron of course, was a starte, but missed the second half of the season and the playoffs. Bummer.
This is the Mavs "future". These guys saw very little action for various reasons, but they are the young guys on an old team.
These are the guys you forget were on the team at some time during the year, but they were, so they get a card. Oh yeah, they also managed to squeeze Coach Carlisle into his own card as well. Barely.
Each win in the playoffs also gets it's own card. Here is the first round vs. Portland...
The Round 2 sweep vs. the Lakers...
The Western Conference Finals vs. OKC...
and of course, the Finals win against Miami Thrice.
Rounding out the set is this nice MVP card of the one and only Dirk! Man, I really hope the lockout doesn't ruin the season. I'm gonna miss my Mavs. Later.
