The Dallas Mavericks have already undergone massive changes this offseason. Donnie Nelson and Rick Carlisle departed after more than three decades of combined with the organization. Dallas hired Jason Kidd as head coach and Nico Harrison to be the new general manager. The new leadership has plenty of important decisions and changes to make this offseason.

The Mavs have to improve the roster around Luka Doncic to jump into title contention. Kidd also needs to assemble a coaching staff and figure out how to maximize Kristasp Porzingis. Carlisle’s lead assistant Jamahl Mosley left Dallas to be the head coach for the Orlando Magic. The Mavs are in for a busy summer that will feature plenty more changes.

Mosley was a guest on The Woj Pod, which dropped on July 14. He was asked about Luka Doncic, and the new Magic head coach gave fans a glimpse into what makes the Mavericks superstar special.

Jamahl Mosley on what makes Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic special

Coach Mosley was asked by Adrian Wojnarowski about what he learned from Luka Doncic during their three years together in Dallas. See his response below.

"“Well like I said in my press conference the other day, I am not going to get fined in my third day for talking about Luka. You said it. Everybody knows how special he is and how fantastic he is. I learned so much from him. His vision of the floor, his ability to get people involved, but the one thing that stands out, and you can see it on him, is his joy for the game. He just loves to play the game of basketball. He loves to have fun. He sees it a lot like chess and that is what he does.”"

Mosley returned to the point later in the interview when talking about a Basketball Without Borders trip. Luka’s ability to enjoy and love the game is special. He couples that with incredible vision and elite scoring ability to be one of the best players in the NBA. The 22-year-old is just getting started too.

Mosley discussed his journey to getting his first NBA head coaching gig, how to reach today’s player, and so much more in the must-listen interview. All Dallas Mavericks fans should check it out.

Best of luck to Jamahl Mosley in his new job. He was with the Mavs for seven seasons. Mosley is more than ready to be a head coach, but it will not be easy in Orlando. They are just beginning a total rebuild. Hopefully, Mosley can develop their young talent and build a winner.

He will get plenty of chances to take on his former boss after Rick Carlisle moved on to be the Indiana Pacers head coach. That could be a fun rivalry in the years ahead.

Dallas Mavericks supporters should keep it locked to The Smoking Cuban this offseason for all the latest rumors, news, and analysis. The organization plans on making moves, and fans will not want to miss a second of the action.
