The Dallas Mavericks began training camp with media day on Monday, and they are wrapping up the first week with Fan Jam on Oct. 3. The event is free and open to the public. It will be fans' first chance to see Luka Doncic and the Mavericks this season.
Doors open at 11:30 a.m. CT, and the event begins at 1:00 p.m. New head coach Jason Kidd said the scrimmage will start around 1:30 p.m. as the team plans to get a little work in before starting.

Fans should head out to the American Airlines Center or they can stream it from home. There will be plenty of things that are worth watching, but what should supporters be looking for on Sunday afternoon?
