3. Effect on the Dallas community

Prosper has a real chance to make a huge impact on the community in Dallas. He seems like a guy who could do a lot of community service during his tenure with the team, especially if he continues to earn the hearts of fans.

I think there will be a lot more kids signing up for Mavericks summer camp if he continues to thrive, as he already got the attention of the fanbase with his impressive Summer League showing.

The Mavericks do a lot of community work in the Dallas area. They have built 31 basketball courts and 23 community resource centers where kids and adults can have safe spaces to learn and do schoolwork. If he leans into the culture, expect Prosper to begin popping up in these spaces, helping build a greater sense of community in Dallas.

Fans are going to love Prosper. He is unlike other prospects I've seen join the league recently. He is going to be what I call a "franchise's dream."

Prosper will bring his work ethic to practice every day, and he should be able to have a very long career in Dallas as a fan-favorite.
