The Dallas Cowboys may be known as America's team but that title may now belong to the Dallas Mavericks instead.

The Mavericks executed payback to perfection. Five years after losing NBA Finals Game 6 at home to Miami, the Mavs managed to return the favor.

It was a total team effort for a franchise that has never gotten to stand atop of the NBA world's throne.

All in all it's a feel good story for a team that many didn't expect to see playing into June.

With the victory comes the realization of a dream for many veteran Dallas players, that may not have had another chance to win a title.

"When you do something as crazy as I did you have to back it up." Jason Terry said.

Give Terry all the credit in the world. He came off the bench to outplay arguably the two best players in the NBA.

Dirk Nowitzki has to be feeling blessed: for on a night when he was ice cold, it was his teammates that managed to pick up the slack.

That was one of the best aspects of the Mavericks, they truly were the epitome of a team.

At no point did anyone question if they would unravel. They steered through four series that people questioned if they could win.

Not just did they steer through it, they came out shining bigger and brighter than any star in Texas.

We will now take a look at the top 10 reasons Dallas won Game 6 and are now the champions of the NBA world.
