Dallas Mavericks Win 2011 NBA Championship

The Dallas Mavericks have won the 2011 NBA Championship.  They entered the regular season as 18 to 1 long shots of winning the title.  It is their first NBA Championship in franchise history. 

The Miami Heat were favorites to win it coming into the season.

Dallas easily handled the Heat in Game 6, ensuring this would not go to a Game 7. 

The Mavs had come into this series dominating Miami in nine of ten games. 

Gambling911.com had picked Dallas throughout the series (despite our base being in Miami Beach).  We went 4-2 with these picks.
