The Shreveport/Bossier Mavericks are a professional basketball team that is currently slated to return to the American Basketball Association for the 2013-2014 season. The Mavericks were founded in the 2006-2007 season and have become one of the ABA's most successful franchises, having won back-to-back titles in 2010 and 2011 despite leaving the ABA twice, and are one of Texas' best ABA franchises. The Mavericks are based in Winnie, Texas.

The Mavericks play their home games at the Nutty Jerry's Entertainment Complex.


  • Owner(s) - Jerry Nelson Jr.
  • Head Coach(es) - Steve Tucker (holds ABA record for first coach to lead two different teams who were placed at the #1 ABA Power Ranking)




The Southeast Texas Mavericks were founded in the 2006-2007 season as the Rio Grande Valley Silverados who were owned by Jerry Nelson Jr. The Silverados would top the ABA Power Rankings but leave the league for the 2007-2008 season for the rival Continental Basketball Association.

The next season saw the creation of the Southwest Texas Mavericks, who, like the Silverdos, would top the ABA Power Rankings, and would go on to win two championships in the next three seasons before leaving the league for a bid to join the NBA D-League.

After the attempt failed, the team moved to Shreveport/Bossier, Louisiana and is slated to return to the ABA for the 2013-2014 season.
