Dallas Mavericks center Maxi Kleber played a song for fans on the guitar. See the big man’s hidden talent here plus more on his importance to the team.

Dallas Mavericks players have been trying to stay busy during the pandemic. The organization provided them with workout equipment. Some are shooting outside on their home hoop. Others are lifting, biking, and running to stay in shape. There is plenty of free time too.

Mavs basketball will be back in 2020. Nobody knows yet it if it will be part of the 2019-2020 season or the 2020-2021 one. Commissioner Adam Silver and his team are still trying to figure everything out. The Mavs will be ready when things start kicking back off.

To pass the time, Maxi Kleber has been playing the guitar. Fans can hear a song by him below.


Kleber talked about trying to teach himself new songs on the guitar on the 77 Minutes in Heaven podcast last week. Clearly, he is a quick study.

Kleber also discussed almost giving up on his dream after having a few injury setbacks in Germany while trying to make it to the NBA on that podcast. Fans should take the time and listen if they have a chance.

Kleber will play an important role for the Mavericks if play resumes this summer. His ability to protect the rim and guard on the perimeter are unique. Coach Rick Carlisle will certainly use it to his advantage when the matchup calls.

The Mavs excel when Kleber is blocking shots too. He has blocked three or more shots 12 times this season. The Mavericks have won eight of those games. His defense is a key piece for Dallas.
