I think you can tell the guys have fun playing and competing for him. So hopefully we can continue that and build on that and hopefully it’ll be another fun year. Speaking Sunday at the Fifth Annual Dirk Nowitzki Pro Celebrity Tennis Classic – it was held at SMU – Nowitzki was all giddy about what the Mavs were able to accomplish last season.
Sunday morning, I hosted a Spotify Live where I talked with Mavericks fans about Media Day, which happens Monday. With such a specific topic to look forward to, I got some great questions about what fans would like to see asked tomorrow during Media Day. For those unfamiliar, Media Day is a kick off of the start of the pre-season.
The Mavericks had to give up a total of three extra first round picks to acquire Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis. Those trades coupled with the Stepien rule which prevents a team from trading consecutive first round picks have hamstrung the Mavericks since Doncic’s arrival. The Jrue Holiday trade you mentioned involved the Milwaukee Bucks giving up two unprotected first round picks and two pick swaps.
