Mavs be­come hur­ri­cane he­roes

The Dallas Morning News - - World -

Add Dal­las Mav­er­icks point guard J. J. Barea and owner Mark Cuban to the list of he­roes who have come to the res­cue of vic­tims of re­cent hur­ri­canes. With the team’s bless­ing, Barea was given the use of the team’s pri­vate plane to haul sup­plies to his na­tive Puerto Rico af­ter it was rocked by hur­ri­canes Irma and Maria. He helped dis­trib­ute wa­ter, gen­er­a­tors, food and other ne­ces­si­ties. What’s more, Barea had raised nearly $150,000 ear­lier this week to help with the re­lief ef­forts. Ku­dos to the Mavs for us­ing their celebrity and re­sources for good.
