Dallas Mavericks rookie phenom Luka Doncic earned high praise from Washington Wizards Head Coach Scott Brooks before Tuesday’s game.

Dallas Mavericks fans love Luka Doncic.  The 19-year-old is already showing so much talent on the basketball court, and that should only continue to grow as he settles into the NBA.  It is easy to forget Doncic is a rookie who just played his tenth game in the league on Tuesday evening.

Speaking of that contest, the Mavericks defeated the Washington Wizards 119-100 on the back of a total team effort.  Doncic led the Mavs in scoring with 23 points.  He also shot over 50 percent from the field for the third time in four games.  Luka looks poised for massive things during his career.

Veteran NBA coach Scott Brooks is definitely taking notice.  Brooks is currently the Wizards head coach.  He was the head man for the Thunder for seven seasons as well.  Brooks also played in the NBA for ten years from 1988 to 1998.  He had some wonderful things to say about the game of Luka Doncic before Tuesday’s game.  Here are the quotes courtesy of Dwain Price.

That is high praise for any player and Mavericks fans should consider themselves lucky that Luka Doncic is part of their team.
