The Dallas Mavericks won the championship in 2011 in a defining moment in NBA history. Dirk Nowitzki finally got his ring as the Mavs took out the big three Miami Heat featuring LeBron James in six games, including coming back from a 2-1 series deficit. Their win over the Heat capped an incredible run that will forever be remembered by MFFLs.
DeShawn Stevenson was a key piece of that 2011 squad, although if the Mavericks had their way he might not have been. Fans can listen to owner Mark Cuban explain the scenario in detail here. Stevenson was a throw-in piece in a trade with the Wizards, and the Mavericks shopped him everywhere but could not find a taker. Dallas needed his toughness, defense, and shooting during the title run, so it turned into a blessing in disguise for the Mavs.
Stevenson has decided to auction off his championship ring from 2011, and fans can bid on it until June 4th at 9 p.m. CT.

Fans can get a piece of Mavericks history, but it won’t come cheap. The bid is already north of $30,000 with more than two days left before the auction concludes. The ring includes more than 130 diamonds, and according to the auction website, Cuban paid more than $1.4 million on the team’s rings back in 2011.
Stevenson has not played in the NBA since 2013, but he did spend a few years playing in the Big3. The 6’5 wing led the league in 3-pointers made in the 2018 season and tied for the top spot in 2019 with Brandon Rush.
