Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

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."

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
