DALLAS - Not only were fans introduced to new players in Tuesday's Mavs press conference, but also saw the unveiling of the new alternate jerseys, designed by contest winner (and DB.com lifer) Geoff Case. We've got the story behind the story here:
Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban opened Tuesday's press conference by revealing the winning design in the crowdSPRING jersey design contest.
The new alternate uniform, designed by Dallas native Geoff Case, features the Dallas skyline and will be on display on the court in the 2015-2016 season.
Case -- who happens to be a DallasBasketball.com member dating all the way back to 2000 when he was a teenager -- submitted designs that included white, black and green unis. But only the blues will be used, for about eight games, in the 2015-16 season.
There is a minor error in the mock-up as displayed at the presser, and our Mike Fisher got to the bottom of it: The actual design features the familiar Reunion Tower as part of the skyline (of course) ... but the mock-up shown at the presser sort of eliminates the "ball'' at the top of the tower. That will be corrected in time for the uniforms ... and is already in place in T-shirts that Mark Cuban promises with a wink are "affordably priced'' at Mavs retail shops.
