I've always postured that sports is woven into the fabric of our community in Dallas/Fort Worth. Now the Mavericks are truly reflecting that. The team unveiled its 2015-2016 jersey on Tuesday which reps the Dallas skyline well.
It was a crowdsourced project designed by Dallas native Geoff Case. Mavericks owner Mark Cuban chose Case's skyline-themed look out of 1,000 entries. For his efforts, Case received $1,000 and season tickets for the 2015-2016 season.
Sounds kinda skimpy to me. I digress.
This alternate jersey will be worn at least eight times during the 2015-16 season.

From t-shirt company Outline the Sky's skyline-themed looks to City + Sky's chic Dallas pieces, the Dallas skyline is having a moment. Dallas recently earned "Best International Skyline" honors from USA Today.
Here's the thing: while this is a trend on the fashion front, skyline jerseys are nothing news. The dear, departed Seattle SuperSonics had a great skyline logo on their jersey from 1975 to the 94/95 season.
The Golden State Warriors have sported various versions of the Golden Gate Bridge in their logo throughout the years. The Nuggets had an odd Tetris-looking logo for more than a decade.
What Do You Think?
I like all things Dallas. Given that the Mavericks are truly the only team that plays in AND is headquartered in Dallas, it's smart to promote that.
