Dallas Mavericks center Dwight Powell made a fan’s day by virtually dropping by for story time. See the video that will surely put a smile on your face here.

The Dallas Mavericks have missed Dwight Powell for the last 24 games before the suspension in play. The 28-year-old tore his Achilles in the first quarter on Jan. 21 against the LA Clippers. He subsequently had surgery and was ruled out for the rest of the season.

Powell has been attacking his rehab with the same work ethic that vaulted him from a second round pick to the full-time starter. The 6’10 big man is hoping to be back on the court by the opening night of the 2020-2021 season. Time will tell if he can reach that goal.

Dallas Mavericks fans miss Powell’s alley-oop ability and watching him throw down a thunderous dunk. Despite his injury, Powell continues to give back. See his latest good deed below.

He dropped by for story time and clearly made a fan’s day. That is nothing new for Powell. He is one of the most active Mavs in the community. DP is always donating money or his time to help out. He should certainly be applauded for that too.

It will be interesting to see what coach Rick Carlisle decides to do when Powell is healthy. Kristaps Porzingis has thrived since he began playing the five. That was after Powell’s injury. Will Powell come off the bench next season? Or does he earn the starting job next to KP?

Right now, it looks likely that the Mavericks start Porzingis with Maxi Kleber and Powell coming off the bench. Powell will wreak havoc against second units as a rim roller and lob threat. Hopefully, he makes a speedy recovery and is back on the court in no time.
