Dallas Mavericks fans received some motivation from Charlie Villanueva on April 27. Hear what the former Mavs forward had to say here.

The Dallas Mavericks signed Charlie Villanueva in the summer of 2014. Dirk Nowitzki led the team that year, but he was starting to slow down. Monta Ellis took over as the Mavs top scorer in Charlie V’s first season. The Mavericks made the playoffs but were eliminated in the first round by the Houston Rockets.

It was Villanueva’s first postseason experience. He played a minimal role in both of his seasons in Dallas. Villanueva averaged 5.7 points and 2.4 rebounds in 10.7 minutes per over 126 games. That turned out to be his final two seasons in the NBA. He was well-liked by his teammates, but the production just was not there.

It is hard not to like Villanueva, though. He has made a successful career in real estate after hanging up the basketball sneakers.

Great advice from Villanueva. Hopefully, everyone has found a productive way to pass the time during the pandemic. I have been working on my cooking skills. Now is the perfect time to find a new passion or reconnect with an old one.

The current Dallas Mavericks are still waiting to hear what happens next. The season is suspended, but there is no clear timetable for resuming play. Will the NBA be able to crown a champion in 2020? Nobody knows the answer at this point. Everyone is hoping for the best, though.

Please, be safe during the pandemic. Make sure you are taking precautions and being smart. Hopefully, things return to normal in short order, and we can all enjoy some Mavericks basketball.
