The Dallas Mavericks’ basketball locker room was designed in partnership with Gensler featuring Hollman Athletic Lockers
The Dallas Mavericks basketball locker room, designed in partnership with Gensler, is state-of-the-art and geared for peak performance. The players can access a wide range of special amenities, including a personal safe, unique tablet docking station, refrigerated cup holder, flat-screen television, and ventilated drawers where up to eight pairs of shoes can air out.
Mark Cuban and the Mavs unveiled their new digs on Saturday afternoon, showing off major renovations to the locker room and training area. Every aspect of design was backed by science and research as Cuban said he wanted a competitive edge in every possible way.
The lights and colors are specifically picked to promote “physical and mental realization.” Cuban said he talked to casinos about how they keep people comfortable and alert 24 hours a day, which Cuban said was linked to flowing in fresh oxygen at maximum levels. He said, spend a few minutes inside the Mavs new basketball locker room and you’ll feel like you can go run a mile.
Each locker comes with a host of new features. There’s a dock to load a tablet containing useful team information, schedules, etc. A refrigerated cup holder, a flat-screen TV, and ventilated drawers round out the amenities.
We are thrilled to death with what Hollman has been able to do with our lockers.

The training area also got a new overhaul, with new equipment (Cuban’s Stairmaster that he uses while talking to the media still made it) with new showers, bathrooms and training pools. When you enter the main entrance where the training room is, you walk right into a trophy case featuring the three trophies the Mavs have collected from the 2011 title and two Western Conference Finals wins.
There’s also a lot of local flair, with the Dallas skyline in each of the jersey hangers and Cuban said “98 percent” of the hours worked on this project were from Dallas-based companies.
