1999–2000 Dallas Mavericks season

The 1999-2000 Dallas Mavericks season was the 20th season for the NBA team in Dallas, Texas. This season is especially notable as Mark Cuban purchased the team from H. Ross Perot, Jr. in January 2000. Under Cuban's leadership, the Mavs built a foundation for continued NBA success that eventually led to two Finals appearances (and one championship) in the next decade.

The Mavs signed the flamboyant power forward Dennis Rodman in early 2000, after Cuban bought the team. Rodman's behavior issues led to a very short (12 game) tenure in Dallas before he was waived. Dallas finished fourth in the Midwest Division with a 40-42 record.

Mark Cuban

On January 15, 2000, Mark Cuban purchased a majority stake in the NBA Dallas Mavericks basketball team for $285 million from H. Ross Perot, Jr..[2][3]

Dennis Rodman

In the 1999–2000 NBA season, the then 38 year old power forward was signed by the Dallas Mavericks, meaning that Rodman returned to the place where he grew up. For the Mavericks, he played 12 games, was ejected twice and alienated the franchise with his erratic behavior until he was waived again; Dallas guard Steve Nash commented that Rodman "never wanted to be [a Maverick]" and therefore was unmotivated.[4]
