Mark Cuban Looking to Dallas Mavericks Fans to Design New Jerseys

+Read full article

Jerome Miron: USA TODAY Sports

Dallas Mavericks owner and marketing genius Mark Cuban knows how to get his team’s fans involved. Known for his creative marketing strategies and entrepreneurial prowess, the eccentric owner is now calling for fans to help design the team’s new jerseys.

Though there are a handful of variations of the current design, the Mavericks last re-designed their jerseys in 2001; because in the NBA looks tend to be just as important as talent, it’s about time for the franchise to adopt a new look.

Yesterday, Cuban issued the following challenge to Mavs fans via his personal blog:

The Mavs are going to re-do our uniforms for the 2015-16 season… if we get a unique and original design. What’s the best way to come up with creative ideas ? You ask for them. So we are going to crowd-source the design and colors of our uniforms.

You know what an NBA uniform looks like. You know what the Mavs colors are for today and the past.  We want some new ideas that stay true to our logo and at least close to our current color schemes. Show us what you got ! http://blogmaverick.com/

The idea has been met with a bit of resistance from Mavs fans, some accusing the billionaire of being “cheap.” In all fairness, Cuban has proven that he is anything but, and honestly, it’s a brilliant way to get the fans involved after an incredibly disappointing season.

Though he hasn’t mentioned what the winner will get other than the possibility of some tickets, you have to admit it would be pretty cool to see your favorite team wearing a jersey that you designed and created.

Dirk Nails Game-Winner, Gets Love From Kobe

Kobe Bryant wasn't able to lace up for the Los Angeles Lakers against the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday night, but he still managed to make the highlight reels on multiple occasions. After Dirk Nowitzki nailed what turned out to be the game-winning jumper, he stumbled backward into Bryant and received a pat of approval. This encounter is the definition of the saying 'game recognizes game' as the two players are both legends and future Hall of Famers.

Josh Smith Fakes Dirk Nowitzki Out of His Shoes

Josh Smith has returned to the Houston Rockets via trade, and he made the most of his first game back. He scored 16 points off the bench, including this drive on Dirk Nowitzki that made Smith look like Hakeem Olajuwon. Could Ty Lawson and Josh Smith be the spark duo off the bench that rejuvenates this Rockets team?

Watch Kings' Rondo Attempt To Trip Mavs' Williams

Last night's game between the Sacramento Kings and Dallas Mavericks was one of the most entertaining of the season. It was a back-and-forth contest that ended on a Deron Williams three-pointer as time expired in double-overtime. Unfortunately, Williams almost didn't get to take that shot as Rajon Rondo attempted to trip him from the bench earlier in the game which could have caused serious injury. Rondo should be suspended for his actions.
