The Dallas Mavericks are off to a poor start this season with a 9-14 record that has forced them to #14 on the table. They’re unable to show the character and grit that they displayed last year, which almost scared the Clippers in the postseason.

However, the season is far from over, and they can still bounce back. And since the duo of Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis are able to inspire the unit right now, their team owner has seemingly taken matters into his own hands. How did Mark Cuban do that?

The American billionaire and the outspoken team owner of the Mavericks, Mark Cuban, has always been a basketball enthusiast. The 62-YO might not be the fittest man in the room of his celebrated Shark Tank panel, but he definitely has the top-notch hooping skills for a billionaire that busy.

Recently, he came down to the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas to join his team and perhaps motivate them to post a W. Right before the game, he could not stop himself from trying hands on shooting three-pointers. And one must accept, he nailed it like a pro with a hundred percent accuracy of stance and conversion. Take a look –

That’s the very dynamic team owner leading by example. If he can, why can’t Josh Richardson or Maxi Kleber?

Mavs vs the Golden State Warriors: Who wins?

The Mavs have lost seven of their last 10 outings and have won only two games on their home court. This is bad news considering they’re about to play the same Warriors that demolished them in a blowout 116-147 victory.

Luka Doncic is averaging close to a triple-double in every game, while Kristaps Porzingis is also averaging close to 20 points and 8+ rebounds. But the starters like Dorian Finney-Smith and the bench players like Trey Burke are underperforming at both ends, and that’s a cause of worry.

Their catch-and-shoot capability is good, but not quite comparable to that of the Golden State Warriors. Maybe that is why Mark Cuban was so keen on taking a side of the court and showing how it is done. 

Do you think the Mavs can upset the Warriors and show that their skin is still in the game? Help us know in the comments.
