JAMES DONALDSON CENTER, 1985--86 TO '91--92
Charles Barkley called the British-born center "American Tourister," saying his head was as big as a suitcase. Donaldson holds the season record for field goal percentage (58.6) among Mavs who made at least 300 shots.
MICHAEL FINLEY GUARD-FORWARD, 1996--97 TO 2004--05
A constant on the floor who averaged 39.7 minutes per game in Dallas, Finley could do anything asked of him, from guarding a top offensive opponent to scoring 30 points himself.
DEREK HARPER POINT GUARD, 1983--84 TO '93--94, '96--97
Nobody had more assists or steals as a Maverick than Harper, who raised his scoring average in seven straight seasons and formed an enduring backcourt with Blackman for nine years.
JASON KIDD POINT GUARD, 1994--95 TO '96--97, 2007--08 TO PRESENT
The 1994--95 NBA Rookie of the Year and certain Hall-of-Famer helped Dallas to its first NBA title in his second tenure with the club. Kidd ranks second alltime in assists and third in steals among all NBA players.
STEVE NASH POINT GUARD, 1998--99 TO 2003--04
Acquired in a '98 trade with Phoenix, Nash became a star as a member of the Mavericks' version of the Big Three, setting up scoring chances for Finley and Nowitzki and earning his first two All-Star appearances.
