Luka Doncic, Mark Cuban, & Dwight Powell donate to aid healthcare workers
Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban teamed up with Luka Doncic and Dwight Powell to donate $500,000 to help healthcare workers fighting the coronavirus.
Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is making an impact during this difficult time. The NBA has suspended play because of the novel coronavirus. Cuban was the first one to the mic after it was announced.
He did not stop there. Cuban committed to paying hourly workers at the American Airlines Center for games they missed. He is also reimbursing his employees for supporting local food establishments. The Mavericks owner wants businesses to thrive and people to stay safe.
Now, Cuban has partnered with Mavericks star Luka Doncic and center Dwight Powell to donate to help healthcare workers at The University of Texas Southwestern Medical and Parkland Hospitals. Fans can see the press release below.
It was awesome to see all three men step up and help the people who are taking care of others. It was a kind gesture that is greatly appreciated in this difficult time.
On a lighter note, the hiatus has given Luka Doncic time to show off his humor. He defeated teammate Jalen Brunson in a streamed game of FIFA 20 and followed it up with some playful trash talk. Doncic also took on the toilet paper challenge and poked fun at some retro Dirk highlights. The 21-year-old star is funny to go along with being an exceptional basketball player.
Nobody expected basketball to be on hiatus right now. It is important that everyone is staying safe, though. Hopefully, games will return this summer, and the Mavericks will get their chance in the playoffs.
