Dallas Mavericks point guard Jalen Brunson gives fans five suggestions on what to watch this weekend. Check them out here.

The Dallas Mavericks drafted Jalen Brunson in the second round in 2018. They were stunned he was still on the board. Brunson was the starting point guard on two Villanova national championship teams. All he did was win in college. Brunson was also the Naismith Player of the Year and Wooden Award winner.

The Mavericks have been ecstatic about his early returns in the NBA too. Brunson’s minutes are limited by the presence of Luka Doncic, but he has proven more than capable during his time on the court. The 23-year-old averaged 8.2 points, 2.4 rebounds, and 3.3 assists in 17.9 minutes per game this season.

His year ended early due to a shoulder injury and subsequent surgery. Coach Rick Carlisle was quick to rule Brunson out for the season. Fans should not expect him back even if play resumes this summer.

Like all of us, Jalen Brunson is stuck inside and enjoying plenty of free time. He has been streaming video games on his Twitch channel and interacting with fans on Twitter. He also offers some recommendations on what to watch.

Dallas Mavericks fans should enjoy all three John Wick movies. They are entertaining. Mavs center Boban Marjanovic makes a cameo in the third installment too.

Supports can bet that Brunson is working hard on his rehab at home. The point guard is hoping to be ready for the start of the 2020-2021 season. That looks likely to be pushed back until December giving him a bit of extra time.

Brunson will continue to improve too. He is the perfect fit for the lead playmaker in the second unit. The Dallas Mavericks would love him to be their guy for the next decade-plus. Hopefully, they can make it happen.
