Dallas Mavericks center Willie Cauley-Stein offers five suggestions on things to watch as we all ride out the pandemic together.

The Dallas Mavericks traded for Willie Cauley-Stein in January. Dwight Powell had just suffered a season-ending Achilles injury. The Mavs need a center capable of rolling to the rim and matching up against the league’s top big men.

Cauley-Stein was never quite able to find his footing with the Mavericks. He played in nine straight games before missing seven consecutive. Trill returned for three of the final four contests before the NBA suspended play due to the novel coronavirus. Cauley-Stein would have played more down the stretch as the backup five. Unfortunately, he did not get that chance.

NBA has been suspended for over two months now. Some professional sports are slowing starting to ramp back up, but commissioner Adam Silver has made no firm decisions about basketball. They are still exploring options and determining what is the best way to do it.

It leaves us fans searching for things to watch. Everyone is stuck inside and surfing for options. Willie Cauley-Stein gave supporters a tip on five shows they can check out.

Mavericks fans may want to explore Dead to Me if they have not already. Jalen Brunson sent out this tweet in support of the show on May 16.

I will admit that I had never heard of it before seeing Cauley-Stein’s list. I will be checking it soon, though.

Please be smart and safe during the pandemic. Continue to follow the guidelines set forth by public health officials because that is the fastest way for sports and activities to return. We are all certainly carving those right now.

If the 2019-2020 season resumes, Willie Cauley-Stein could see an increased role. The Dallas Mavericks will have ample to integrate him into their plan. That could be a plus for both parties. Stay tuned to see how it all shakes out.
