Mark Cuban is arguably one of the best owners for an NBA franchise. Not only does he cares about the team but he has done a lot for the community as well. The Dallas Mavericks are blessed to have someone of his caliber to be leading the team off the court.

Cuban recently joined the “DangerTalk” podcast with ESPN, where he talked about the impact of Dirk Nowitzki on the Dallas community.

Dirk will call up children’s hospital cancer ward and say I’m coming down. Not okay can the Mavs set it up and let’s bring some cameras. It’s just like I’m coming down to visit and I’m just gonna show up and he’ll spend hours.

I mean that is crazy, right? Just to be able to give his time like that. And he’s been a big inspiration for me. He has a charity baseball game, he has a charity tennis tournament and he’s just doing all these things with kids all the time.”

Dirk spent his entire career with the Dallas Mavericks and always gave his best for the team. Moreover, he led the team to an NBA championship back in 2011 against the Miami Heat.

After spending 21 seasons with the team, Dirk passed the torch to Luka Doncic to lead the team. In the two years that Luka has played for the Mavs, he has been outstanding and will only improve from here on.

Can Luka Doncic lead the Dallas Mavericks to an NBA title one day?

Speaking of Luka Doncic, he is coming off of his first taste of the NBA playoffs. Although the Mavs were eliminated from the playoffs in the opening round, Luka gave it his all. Even without Kristaps Porzingis being on the floor, Luka pushed the Clippers to six games.

But it was not enough as the Clippers were too much too handle for Luka alone. However, looking back at his tremendous performances, the Mavs’ future is in great hands. Luka definitely has the talent and skill to lead this Mavs team to an NBA Championship one day in his career.

But what are your thoughts about Luke and the Mavs for next season? Can they make it all the way to the NBA Finals?
