Sure, Your Dallas Mavs Haven't Won a Title. Doesn't Mean They're Not "Dominant."
So says list-lovin' Forbes in its round-up of The Best (And Worst) Teams of the Decade, assembled using franchises' win-loss record during the '00s, playoff appearances, titles won and the value of the franchise (which, in the Mavs' case, has more than doubled since Mark Cuban bought the team in 2000 from Ross Perot Jr. for around $280 million). Notes Forbes when placing the Mavs third, behind only the San Antonio Spurs and the Detroit Red Wings, "Their title quest has come up short, but the Mavericks are one of only two NBA teams, along with the Spurs, to register a winning record in every season this decade."
