The Dallas Mavericks are trying to engage with their fans during the novel coronavirus pandemic. Players have been streaming video games and answer questions on social media. One of the most active is Jalen Brunson.
The second-year guard is always trying to let Mavs supporters in on what he is doing. Brunson also continues to show love for Villanova and their fans. He won two NCAA championships in three seasons as the starting point guard for the Wildcats.
Brunson was at it again on May 18. He took over the NBA’s official Twitter to answer questions. Here is a look at some of the best moments.
JB on Jordan doc
Brunson was asked about his favorite part of The Last Dance. Hear what he had to say below.
The Mavs guard has been tweeted about it each week. The documentary was incredible. It was first look at prime Michael Jordan for many fans. What a sight it was for all.
On changes this season
Brunson was also asked about what is different between his first and second NBA season.
The Mavericks certainly improved a lot this season. It has been odd without Dirk Nowitzki, though. He was a such a fixture and in many ways is the Mavs. Hopefully, Dirk is enjoying his retirement.
Brunson also discussed how he is inspiring others, playing against his college teammates, and more so much. Fans can see the entire thread of his answers here.
It will be interesting to see if Brunson is able to play when the season resumes. He opted for shoulder surgery shortly after the NBA suspended play. Some reports have suggested he would be sidelined for the remainder of the season. Will the extended break allow him to return if the playoffs happen later this summer? It is something to keep an eye on.
If not, Brunson should be back and healthy to kick off the 2020-2021 season. The 23-year-old may have his best year yet. The hard work will not stop meaning Brunson will continue to improve. He will be another important piece in the Dallas Mavericks’ success moving forward.
