Meeting the Mavs

Jonte with the Dallas Mavericks' Dirk Nowitzki

“ Jonte was introduced on the big screen as the game's Co-Captain, right before the players had him join them in the pre-game huddle. ”

    • I wish to meet the Dallas Mavericks

18-year-old Jonte’s one most heartfelt wish was to meet the Dallas Mavericks. His wish came true when he sat court-side at a Mavericks v. Rockets game in Dallas.

Not only did he have the best seats in the house, but he was introduced on the stadium’s big screen as the game's Co-Captain, right before the players had him join them in the pre-game huddle! The fun continued after the game when he was escorted to the Mavericks’ locker room for autographs, including an autographed pair of shoes from Dirk Nowitzki!

A note from Jonte’s aunt sums up his whole wish experience: "Based on the size and the quantity of his smiles, I would say that it was the best time of Jonte’s life. I have never, in his eighteen years, seen him smile so much. By the time we finished the tour of Cowboy Stadium, he was on cloud nine. Then, after sitting court-side at the Mavericks game, going back with the VIP passes, and having one on one time with the players, I am sure he made it way past that."

I have never, in his eighteen years, seen him smile so much. ”

— Wish Kid Jonte's aunt
