The Dallas Mavericks will take on the Minnesota Timberwolves tonight, which is the perfect time for the squad to receive their championship rings that they won last summer in the NBA Finals over the Miami Heat.

J.J. Barea, who plays on the Timberwolves, and Peja Stojakovic, who is retired, will get their rings as well prior to the game tonight.

Many have already saw some glimpses of the ring via some video clips, including the making of the ring.

Jason Terry is looking forward to seeing the $40,000 piece of work.

"We've only seen a brief design of it," Terry said. "Once you get it and see and hold it and touch it, it's probably like a baby -- you know I got four of those -- so that's probably what it's like."

Here's more from ESPN Dallas:
Mavs owner Mark Cuban said he paid a total of $1.4 million for the rings for the 15 players and the entire coaching staff. The design is similar to the one chosen by the 2009-10 Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks.

One side of the ring will include the player's name engraved above the team logo with the player's jersey number. Terry said he also believes the team's postseason motto, "The Time is Now," is engraved on the ring.
Looking forward to see what it looks like.
