The Dallas Mavericks did not qualify for the playoffs this season, but it has not stopped them from winning awards. Fans need to get out and vote for Dwight Powell to win the 2023 Bob Lanier NBA Community Assist Award if they want them to win another.

Powell shared the award with Chris Paul, Jaylen Brown, George Hill, and Harrison Barnes in 2020, and he also won for the month of October 2018. The 6’10 big man has been nominated for the season-long award three times, and he is looking to win outright for the first time. Read more about his charity work here.
