The Dallas Mavericks are the 2011 NBA champions, beating the Miami Heat in the 2011 NBA Finals, 4-2. Posted by Ben Golliver.

Against the odds, the Dallas Mavericks are your 2011 NBA champions. The Mavericks defeated the Miami Heat in six games, closing out the series, 4-2, by winning at American Airlines Arena. The final score: Dallas 105, Miami 95.

Shawn Marion dribbled the ball out and then handed it Jason Kidd as the buzzer sounded. Not wasting any time, Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki ran directly off the court while Mavericks owner Mark Cuban and coach Rick Carlisle hugged each other on the court.

It is the first title in franchise history and the first ring for Nowitzki, Kidd, Marion and guard Jason Terry. Many will celebrate the fact that it came against arguably the Heat, the NBA's most hated team after LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh decided to team up last summer.

James is now 0-for-2 in his Finals career and he walked off the court alone.

Here's video of time expiring on Dallas' first title.
