Mavs legend Rolando Blackman on Dirk Nowitzki, Zion Williamson & Paying College Athletes
During halftime of the Dallas Mavericks and Indiana Pacers game, we were able to catch up with a Maverick legend Rolando Blackman.
Blackman played 11 seasons in a Mavericks uniform, and he has his number 22 hanging in the rafters at the American Airline Center.
The Mavericks legend spoke to us about his stance on the debate if it is time for the NCAA to start paying college athletes like Zion Williamson. He also talked about Doc Rivers and the Los Angeles Clippers stopping the game with nine seconds left to pay their respects to Dirk Nowitzki. He has not announced that this will be his last season, but teams around the NBA have been giving a farewell tour.
Blackman would finish the interview by sharing some of the community events that the Mavericks have planned this year.
