First Two-Way Player in Mavericks Franchise Looks to Make History

“I had the best of almost every world. I had Isaiah Austin who’s a skills guy. Rico was a bruiser. Taurean was a pick and pop guy. Cory Jefferson who was an athlete who could catch lobs and run the floor. I had the best of every world. I had no choice but to get better every day or I was gonna get killed in practice.”

"I thought that was the biggest thing in developing players and the mission statement I thought of our organization was one that we met. That is developing players, being an integral part of the community and winning. I thought we were able to accomplish all three of those things.

“I think it’s pretty cool, in either win or loss they come down to show us love. A lot of places you don’t get that. With shoes, a lot of the younger guys kind of know what I’m about off the court. Shoes are a big deal for me and I don’t mind giving them away, especially when a kid wants them and he likes what I do on the court. If he thinks he can play like me with my shoes, I think that’s pretty dope.”

“During the game I don’t keep track of (blocks), I honestly don’t,” says the Gabon, Africa native. “Unless my teammates say something, I don’t track them. I just react to people going for layups and read defenses. I don’t really keep track of the count or anything like that.”

When I’m at home we get assistance from the interns (the do-it-all duo of Chris Blakeley/Dustin Berthold). Obviously they’re a huge help whether it’s getting some of the basic things down or grabbing supplies from time to time. Sometimes you’re one person filling multiple roles versus having a full-fledged staff at other levels.”

“It was fun,” Dawkins says. “My teammates were finding me, kept feeding me and I was able to get open. Guys were setting good screens for me. It makes my job easy, I just have to catch and shoot it most of the time. I think we played a good game all-around. It’s fun to get out there and just play a real solid 48 minutes.”

“The team knew I had 18 rebounds and they wanted me to go back in,” Warney says through a smile almost as big as his performance. “I got the first rebound so easily, it’s always the hardest thing to get the last rebound. As you could see in the last two minutes I’m running all over the court to try to get the rebound.”
