The Dallas Mavericks would not have reached the conference finals last season without Reggie Bullock. They signed the 6’6 wing in free agency in the summer of 2021, and his perimeter defense and shot-making were key factors in the team’s postseason success. Bullock became so key that head coach Jason Kidd was reluctant to give him a rest during games.
The 31-year-old also won the Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Social Champion award in his first season with the Mavericks. It recognizes a player that is fighting for social justice and equality. Bullock’s win gave the entire team a special moment as they got a chance to talk with Kareem.
The 6’6 wing continues to advocate for the LGBTQ community, including attending the annual pride parade in New York City. Bullock was the subject of a Whistle original video, which is part of the “My Passions” series where he discussed what is important to him outside of basketball.
Dallas Mavericks wing Reggie Bullock on his passions outside of basketball
Bullock lost two sisters, and he continues to stand up for both. He is committed to helping the LGBTQ community and stopping gun violence. The 31-year-old discusses both and how they have impacted his life in the must-see feature.
Bullock shares his goals at the end of the video. He plans on continuing his activism and fighting for equality. The Dallas Mavericks wing wants to win a second Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Social Champion award and help his team make a deeper postseason run in 2023.
Fans can expect the 6’6 wing to keep working hard to accomplish those goals. The late first-round pick went from an end of the bench option to role player to starter over his nine seasons in the NBA, but Bullock is so much more than just a basketball player. He has made the world a better place, and he will continue to fight for what he believes in.
