Mavs' victory parade plans expected Tuesday
Dallas — A Thursday morning victory parade is planned in downtown Dallas for the newly crowned NBA champion Dallas Mavericks.
Team spokeswoman Sarah Melton says such details as the parade time and route will be announced Tuesday.
Team owner Mark Cuban said he'll pick up the tab for the parade costs incurred by the city of Dallas.
Hundreds of fans gave the Mavericks a hero's welcome as their team plane arrived at Dallas Love Field from Miami around midday Monday.
The title is the first ever for the Mavericks and the first for any Dallas-Fort Worth team since the Dallas Stars won the NHL's Stanley Cup in 1999.
The Texas Rangers won the 2010 American League pennant but lost the World Series to the San Francisco Giants.
