The Dallas Mavericks need multiple players to step up if they are going to become serious title contenders this season. Two of the most important coming off the bench are Maxi Kleber and Jalen Brunson. Kleber’s defensive versatility and shot-making allow him to play in almost any lineup, and Brunson must keep the offense rolling when Luka Doncic needs a rest. Getting contributions from both players will be key to the team taking a step forward.
The Mavericks are banking on roster continuity too. They added Reggie Bullock, Sterling Brown, Moses Brown, and Frank Ntilikina this offseason, but return nine of the ten players that played the most minutes a season ago. Dallas needs internal growth and improved team chemistry to play a factor in their success.
Jalen Brunson hit the golf course recently and was showing off his swing on Instagram, which opened the door for Maxi Kleber to leave a hilarious comment. Let us take a closer look.
Maxi Kleber pokes fun at Dallas Mavericks teammate Jalen Brunson
See the post below and be sure to check out Kleber’s comment.
Brunson has discussed on numerous occasions his enjoyment of golf, but Kleber is clearly not impressed with the point guard’s game. Both players are no strangers to course, and former teammate Justin Jackson gave JB’s golf game props back in 2019. Fans would love to see Kleber and Brunson battle it out on the golf course.
New head coach Jason Kidd plans on helping both Jalen Brunson and Maxi Kleber improve. The Mavericks are hoping Kleber’s shot-blocking and defensive chops take another step forward this season with Brunson needing to improve his passing and playmaking. Can the Hall of Famer and his coaching staff bring the best out of both players? It is something to watch this season as the Mavs figure to be one of the most exciting teams in the league. Fans will not want to miss it.
