Dwight Powell had returned to his mother’s home in Boston from Toronto, where he worked out for the Canadian National Team. Less than a week later, Powell’s life turned upside down when his mother, Jacqueline Weir, suddenly died following a short bout with breast cancer at age 53. Powell’s mother hid the fact she was sick from him. “She just didn’t tell me,” said Powell, who is entering his second season with the Dallas Mavericks. “She wanted me to focus on what I was doing and not worry. “I don’t think she realized the severity of the situation that she was in.”
“I think [Rajon Rondo] can do very well here. I always preach that fit matters so much, which differs from people who obsess about the stats. You can rate guys, but so much is about how they fit with different players and coaching schemes. The story I’ve told other people about is at the end of last season in pre-game, [Rondo] was actually going one-on-one with Dwight Powell, trying to drive on him and finish and Dwight’s like 6-foot-10, a big guy, so I really like that.
