“Congratulations to the 2011 NBA Champions, the Dallas Mavericks. Many people said that the Mavericks were the underdogs, but those critics were silenced after game six when the Dallas Mavericks were named the Champions of the 2011 NBA Finals. The Mavericks, which were led by their team captain and MVP Dirk Nowitzki, showed the world that it takes a team effort to be victorious on basketball’s biggest stage.

“I look forward to continued celebrations and even more to my delicious Miami stone crab dinner that my colleague, friend and sorority sister, Representative Frederica Wilson owes me for losing our friendly wager on the series. I am extremely proud of the entire Dallas Mavericks organization for this grand accomplishment and for once again making Dallas the home of Champions!”
