Dallas Mavericks Players Shoot Baskets With Scottish Rite Hospital Patients

Dallas Mavericks players were joined by their mascot, Champ, last week as they visited patients at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children. Three players from the Mavs shot baskets and played games with patients on the hospital's multi-sport court. 

After an hour of shooting-around, the group headed inside to visit the hospital's in-patient unit. Champ and the players passed out gift bags to each patient and posed for pictures with many of their families. The afternoon left a positive impact on both the patients and the players.

"It's truly a blessing to get to spend some time with them, because they light up everybody that's around them with their positive attitudes," Dwight Powell, one of the Mavericks players on the visit, said.
