The Dallas Mavericks are celebrating their 40th birthday.

On May 1, 1980, the announcement of the Dallas Mavericks franchise was held at Union Station and it's been a long road from their old home at Reunion Arena to their current one at American Airlines Center.

That road includes a 2011 NBA World Championship.
