Dallas Mavericks guard Luka Dončić has been named a finalist for the 2021-22 Seasonlong NBA Cares Community Assist Award (CAA), presented by Kaiser Permanente.
Throughout the season, the NBA recognizes a player each month who best reflects the passion that the league and its players share for giving back to their communities.
The NBA CAA Selection Committee will base their Seasonlong vote on the player’s continued commitment to positively impact his community through sustained efforts and difference-making work over the course of the season.
In his fourth season with the Dallas Mavericks, Dončić has committed his time and efforts to the North Texas community and to his home country of Slovenia, uniting a global audience through the game of basketball.
His notable contributions include two refurbished basketball courts in his hometown of Ljubljana, Slovenia, holiday packages for 200 children at the Children’s Hospital of the University Medical Center Ljubljana, multiple visits with Make-A-Wish children, gift surprises to local children’s hospitals and donations throughout the pandemic and last year’s winter storm.
Full coverage of Dončić’s community efforts can be found at mavs.com/nbacares.
This season, the CAA winner will be determined by an NBA executive panel and a fan vote.
Fan voting is live now until Saturday, May 14, using the following platforms:
- Twitter: Tweet a comment using #NBACommunityAssist and #PlayerFirstNameLastName (i.e. #NBACommunityAssist #LukaDoncic)
- Retweets also count as votes
- Jebbit: View player vignettes sharing their community impacts on Jebbit’s platform and vote for the player that best serves the community.
- Jebbit votes can be shared on Twitter and will count as a second vote.
The winner of the 2021-22 Seasonlong NBA Cares Community Assist Award will receive a $75,000 donation to the charity of his choice (vetted by league Social Responsibility), paying homage to the NBA’s 75th anniversary year.
