Dallas Mavericks: Best and worst moment of the past ten years

The Dallas Mavericks had a wild ride in the 2010s. It began with the Dirk Nowitzki leading the team to a championship. The Mavericks GOAT closed out his career only for a new star to join the Mavs.

The organization has a lot to look forward to in the coming decade, but let’s take a quick look at the past ten years to decide the best and worst moment.

For example, some may consider striking gold in the draft-day trade to acquire Luka Doncic the top moment. It is a valid argument because it cements the “passing of the torch” the Dallas Mavericks were looking for after Hall of Famer Dirk Nowitzki wrapped up his legendary career. That is just one stellar moment.

An argument can be made that letting Tyson Chandler walk the summer of 2011 as the worst moment of the 2010s. Mavs fans had seen this before in the 2000s when Dallas decided not to match the Phoenix Suns offer for the future two-time MVP Steve Nash. Fans are still scratching their heads to this day about both moves.

There were plenty of options for both. It was not an easy decision, but here are the best and worst moments of the past ten years for the Dallas Mavericks.
