New Maverick Grant Williams welcomes Dallas ISD students back to school

New Dallas Mavs forward Grant Williams arrived at a local Dallas ISD elementary school Monday morning just as the sun crested the horizon.

A self-proclaimed “kid at heart,” he had an extra pep in his step, showing up early to shake hands with every child and their parents. He didn’t want to miss anyone.

One student showed him no mercy.

“You dance like it’s 2006,” a student named Grace quipped.

Williams stood there stunned for a second before he busted out laughing.

“Man, I don’t know if Grace is my friend right now; she kind of jokingly bullied me today,” Williams later told Mavs.
