The best team and the best man, Mavs owner Mark Cuban, won.
Cuban has undergone a remarkable transformation of late and reaped the rewards.
Instead of being the me-first front man of the franchise, Cuban has taken a back seat to the team itself.
Done are the crazy remarks, the stupendous fines and second-tier team.
In with the new Mark Cuban who watched his team excel and even brought in the Mavericks previous owners Sunday night to bask in the glory of a championship.
Nice touch from the HDNet creator who also appears regularly on the ABC business/game series Shark Tank.
In the post-game celebration, Mavs coach Rick Carlisle joked that Cuban would be available for interviews.
Maybe not so much anymore … and that’s a good thing.
