The 2001-02 NBA season was the Mavericks' 22nd season in the National Basketball Association.[1] It was also their first season playing at American Airlines Center. During the offseason, the Mavericks acquired All-Star point guard Tim Hardaway from the Miami Heat. The Mavericks continued to play solid basketball as Dirk Nowitzki and Steve Nash were both selected to the 2002 NBA All-Star Game for the first time in their careers. At midseason, Hardaway was traded along with Juwan Howard to the Denver Nuggets for Nick Van Exel and Raef LaFrentz.[2] The Mavericks finished fourth in the Western Conference, and second in the Midwest Division with a 57-25 record, and made the playoffs in back to back seasons for the first time since 1988. Nowitzki led the team in scoring and rebounds, while Nash led them in assists. In the Western Conference Quarterfinals, the Mavericks swept the Minnesota Timberwolves in three straight games, but then lost the next series in five games to the Sacramento Kings.

For the season, the Mavericks changed their logo and uniforms. The home jerseys lasted until 2014, while the road jerseys lasted until 2010. Their primary logo is still present as of 2017.
