The Dallas Mavericks will honor the life of the late Don Carter by wearing a "Mr. C" jersey patch for the remainder of the season, the team announced Friday.
Carter, the original owner and co-founder of the Mavericks, died last week. He was 84.
Carter, affectionally known as "Mr. C", owned the Mavericks from their inception ahead of the 1980-81 season until 1996. Carter’s iconic white Stetson cowboy hat was part of the Mavericks’ original logo.
The team plans to honor him with a moment of silence during Monday's game against Indiana at the American Airlines Center. They are also planning a special tribute at the second timeout of the first quarter.
