Dallas Mavericks: Allen Iverson says 2 Mavs among his favorite current players to watch

The Dallas Mavericks are back. They returned to the playoffs for the first time since 2016 as Luka Doncic started the All-Star game and was named first-team All-NBA. The 21-year-old will have Dallas in the hunt for the foreseeable future.

The team has plenty of important decisions to make this offseason. They want to jump back into title contention in 2021 but need a few more pieces to make that a reality. It will be further complicated by the Mavericks being light on cap space. The team is also hoping to bring back Trey Burke after his incredible showing in the bubble.

Hall of Famer Allen Iverson was on the All the Smoke podcast with Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson that released on Thursday. He gave props to two Mavericks among his current favorite players.

Matt Barnes asked The Answer which players he enjoyed watching in the NBA today. Iverson started off by listing Kawhi Leonard, LeBron James, and Anthony Davis. AI’s list continued until Stephen Jackson mentioned that Trey Burke reminded him of Iverson. That prompted the Hall of Famer to say, “That is my little man.”.

Then, Iverson mentioned Luka Doncic by saying, “WHAT! Something is wrong with him”. High praise for the Mavericks superstar from the all-time great.

Fans should be excited about next season. The Mavs promise to be one of the most fun and entertaining teams to watch. Luka is a human highlight reel while Kristaps Porzingis should be back healthy and producing All-Star numbers. The front office will improve the team’s depth and have them ready for a deep playoff run too. Do not miss a second of that action or you will regret it.
