The Dallas Mavericks tweeted out a list of things they are thankful for to celebrate the holiday. Here is a look at the top three.
Dallas Mavericks fans are grateful for the team. Trading for Luka Doncic appears to have set the franchise up for success in both the short and long-term. His breakout spurred the Mavs acquisition of Kristaps Porzingis. The dynamic duo has Dallas in prime playoff position in their first season together.
The Thanksgiving holiday brought our first basketball free day of the NBA regular season. It gave fans time for family, food, and reflection. The Dallas Mavericks decided to tweet out all the things they were thankful for this year. Supporters can find the entire list here.
Let us take a look at the top three things that were mentioned.
Being thankful for Luka Doncic is not just limited to Mavs fans. Anyone who enjoys basketball should be grateful for him. Doncic is an incredible talent with otherworldly vision and IQ for the game. The Mavericks are thankful for their 20-year-old star. He kicked off the list.
Doncic should only improve too. He will reign in his playmaking and make strides on the defensive end. Luka could legitimately be the best player in the NBA in three seasons.
KP block party
The team’s second tweet was a highlight video of Kristaps Porzingis’ blocks. It is a must-watch for all fans.
The Unicorn is not fully back yet. He could easily average 2.5 blocks per game this season. Attack the basket at your own risk if KP is in the paint.
The Mavericks sent out a tweet about every player and what part of their game they that stood out. The video of Seth Curry knocking down shots was my favorite.
Mavs fans should go back and look at all of the tweets from Nov. 29.
The Dallas Mavericks are fun this season. They are leading the NBA in offensive rating, and Doncic is taking the superstar leap. Things should only improve from here too. Fans may need to buckle up for this wild ride.
