The Dallas Mavericks are about to count on Justin Jackson in a big way. ... and he's ready for the challenge.

Welcome to Episode 33 of "The Step Back: A Mavs Podcast,'' where we discuss anything and everything related to the Dallas Mavericks: game coverage, breaking news, rumors, you name it! My guys Dalton Trigg and Matt Galatzan are your hosts, and you can follow along with their Mavs conversations.

On this week's episode, Dalton and Matt had the pleasure of chopping it up with Dallas Mavericks forward Justin Jackson on a variety of different topics.

These topics include: why Justin wears No. 44, gaining muscle and transforming his body this summer, his goals for the 2019-2020 Mavs season (Playoffs?), learning from Dirk Nowitzki in a short period of time, and much, much more. Before Justin joined the guys on this episode, Dalton and Matt revisit the Mavs schedule release so they can compare their 2019-2020 season predictions. From there, they talk about how the Mavs will matchup with the star-studded Los Angeles teams, plus why it's dumb to complain being double-teamed in pickup basketball games (looking at you, Devin Booker...).
