History of the Dallas Mavericks Even though the Dallas Mavericks are now known as the only professional basketball team in Dallas, they do not hold the distinction of being the first professional basketball franchise in the city. Over ten years before their inaugural season, the city was home to the Dallas Chaparrals of the upstart American Basketball Association. Competing with the NBA was a tall order for the ABA and in 1973 the Chaparrals left Dallas to become the San Antonio Spurs. The ABA failed to compete with the NBA and would eventually merge with the dominant professional basketball league, leaving Dallas without a franchise for seven years. In 1980, the city got their team, when the Mavericks joined the NBA as its newest expansion franchise. After the growing pains of being an expansion team, the Mavericks were able to qualify for the NBA Playoffs in only their fourth year in the NBA and by 1985 the Mavericks became true contenders with players like Rolando Blackman, Detlef Schrempf and Mark Aguirre leading the way. In 1986, they posted a then-franchise best record of 55-27 but were eliminated in the first round of the postseason that year by the Seattle Supersonics. From 1985 to 1988, they were one of the best teams each year and in 1988 were one game from qualifying for the NBA Finals, before losing in Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals to the Los Angeles Lakers.
