It took 31 years, but the Dallas Mavericks are the NBA Champions.

The Mavericks and their fans celebrated with a parade with an estimated 200,000 people in attendance.

It was a hot and sweaty day in North Texas, but that didn't stop a pumped up crowd from showing up.

MVP Dirk Nowitzki called it an amazing ride and Rick Carlisle said, in this city you never play for second place.

Take a look at this video and see how the parade and festivities went down.
