Don Carter Biography
Carter was born into a poor family in Arkansas in 1933. However, by 1957, his mother, Mary Crowley made a fortune in a direct marketing interior decoration business, known as Home Interiors & Gifts. The business was sold to Hicks, Muse, Tate & Furst and netted Carter millions of dollars.
Carter, along with Norman Sonju, founded an NBA expansion team, the Dallas Mavericks, in 1980. His US$12 million investment in the team (US$32 million in today's terms) eventually earned him US$125 million (US$175 million in today's terms) when he sold the team in 1996 to an investment group led by H. Ross Perot, Jr..
Over the years, Carter has owned many different types of businesses, including a Rolls-Royce dealership. Other businesses include banks, trucking firms, hotels, rodeo arenas, and cattle ranches. In the 2011 championship win by the Dallas Mavericks over the Miami Heat he was given the honor of receiving the Larry O'Brien trophy by Mark Cuban as the first owner. A minority (4%) owner, he frequently attends Mavericks games.
