Dallas Mavericks rookie Luka Doncic was working on his floater in practice on Sept. 28, and they are must-see for Mavs fans.

The Dallas Mavericks and their fans cannot wait to see Luka Doncic play basketball this season.  He was already a European sensation when they drafted him, but the legend has only grown since coming to Dallas.  Doncic’s teammates rave about his passing ability and the impact he has made during scrimmages.

Fans are clamoring to see Doncic in a Mavs uniform.  Their first chance will be on Sept. 29 in the Mavericks preseason opener against the Beijing Ducks.  The Mavs head to China on Monday for two preseason contests against the Philadelphia 76ers.  The team’s first home regular season game is on Oct. 20 against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Floaters are insane

Luka Doncic is known for his passing and playmaking ability, but he has plenty of tricks in his bag.  He can shoot the ball and create havoc for opposing defenders with his size and ability.  Doncic also can nail a floater with the best of them.  It is an impressive shot too.
