The Dallas Mavericks are trying to win games on the court and make a positive impact in the community. Luka Doncic has been building courts in his native Slovenia and donating money to a plethora of worthy causes. Owner Mark Cuban leads the way, but Reggie Bullock may be the biggest standout for his charity work. He won the Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Social Champion award last season, and the 6’6 wing just received another honor.

Bullock has been working with Athlete Ally for years, but the organization recognized him with their Action award for all he has done to support the LGBTQ community. He was more than deserving of the award, which was handed out at Athlete Ally’s eighth annual awards on Oct. 25.

The Mavs were playing in New Orleans that night, but Bullock still got the honor, and he was proud to show it off. See the pictures below and a quote from the 31-year-old about the award.

Bullock was proud to take home the honors, and fans can see him posing with the award below.

Bullock had this to say about winning the annual award.

"It’s incredibly important to me to honor my sister Mia’s life & legacy. The best way I can do that is by learning to be the best ally I can be to the trans community, & speaking out about the experience of black trans women in particular."

This will not be the last award for Reggie Bullock because he is dedicated to working hard for this cause. Bullock is a key piece for the Mavericks on the court, but he has plenty of passions outside of basketball that are important to him. Expect RB to keep trying to make the world a better place.

It has been a bit of a slow start for Reggie Bullock on the court. Fans know he can knock down shots and play stout perimeter defense, and both should improve as the season progresses. Stay tuned to see what Bullock can do next on the court and for more on his work away from it.
