The Mavericks have been having a blast this summer

The Dallas Mavericks as a team are not extremely active on social media but this summer they’ve been all over the map sharing what they’ve been up to.

Dirk Nowitzki and Mark Cuban both hit massive age milestones this summer. Dirk turned 40 years old and one of his trainers did not let him forget that he was over the hill.

Mark Cuban just turned 60 years old, but Dirk rounded up just a little when he wished his boss a happy birthday. Watch as the big German messes with Cuban and the Mavs vets have the time of their life with The Chainsmokers.

Besides age hazing and aging himself, Dirk has spent a good portion of his summer watching tennis, the World Cup, and realizing that even legends aren’t exempt from random drug testing.

Luka Doncic has been relatively quite so far but he’s been busy watching the World Cup, adopting the Mavs new team emoji, and never ever letting go of his dreams.

While we’re on the topic of dreams, Ryan Broekhoff’s hard work finally paid off when he agreed to a deal with the Mavs.

Harrison Barnes has spent his summer at Team USA Minicamp, running a few of his own camps, and celebrating his 1st Wedding anniversary which means that this video of Kyrie Irving and Stephen Curry trolling LeBron James at HB’s reception is also a year old now.

Dennis Smith Jr. has been working out and it looks like the hard work is paying off.

When he wasn’t in his own world at Cuban’s birthday party, Maxi Kleber has also been hitting the gym with Salah Mejri this summer but not everyone appreciates flex pics.

DeAndre Jordan established the Mavs new team emoji, finally signed with the Mavs, and played a game of Horse with Dave Franco...among other things.

The first time Giannis Antetkounmpo tried a smoothie was an amazing twitter moment and he’s sharing everything he has learned about American Cuisine with his younger brother and new Maverick Kostas Antetokounmpo.

The Antetokounmbros have also been hanging out in the gym together staying, as this put it, freaky.

We want it all #StayFreaky #Antetokounbros

Barnes wasn’t the only Maverick with a basketball camp this summer. Dorian Finney-Smith held his own free camp, as did Jalen Brunson, Ray Spalding helped out at a camp in Louisville, and Dwight Powell attended the Basketball Without Borders Asia Camp.

Powell also helped out some local DFW kids by buying them school supplies.

J.J. Barea has continued his humanitarian efforts in Puerto Rico, held a charity golf event, and was recognized for all his work by winning the Basketball Hall of Fame Human Spirit Award.

It’s clearly been a busy summer for the team, and it’s nice to see them enjoying themselves and helping out the community in their free time.
