Dallas Mavericks point guard Dennis Smith Jr. visited a Dallas elementary school to give back to local kids on their first day of the year.
The Dallas Mavericks continue a summer of hard work in the gym and giving back to the community off the court. Aug. 20 was no different as point guard Dennis Smith Jr. and Mavs CEO Cynthia Marshall went out to the Sidney Lanier Expressive Arts Vanguard school to promote fitness and make the children’s first day of the new year special.
Below is a Tweet from the Mavericks official Twitter account showing what the team donated to the school.
Having a NBA player show up on the first day of school is pretty cool. The children likely had an unforgettable first day thanks to DSJ and the Mavericks organization.

DSJ continues to work hard this offseason on his on-court game. He figures to man the point for an improved Dallas Mavericks team this season. Smith Jr. needs to be more efficient on the offensive end of the floor for the Mavs to make a playoff run and only time will tell if he has made the necessary strides. Stay tuned.
