Dirk Nowitzki

The Mavericks will unveil their championship banner on Christmas, but won’t be getting their rings, which is not unusual considering the lockout has thrown everything out of balance.

Mark Cuban wants to convene with Dirk Nowitzki , Jason Terry and Jason Kidd on the design of the rings and contact between players and owners/management remains off limits until the new collective bargaining agreement becomes official next week.

The Mavericks will have the rings designed after input from the players and will have them presented at a later game.
