6. Most triple doubles by a Maverick since Michael Finley

Man, Luka Legend sure has a deep bond with getting triple doubles and making his way into record books for it. Little did fans remember, there was also another star on the Mavericks who would grab triple-doubles like candy. And that was current Mavericks vice president Michael Finley.

Finley had exactly four triple-doubles in the 1999-2000 season just like Doncic does now. Finley even now continues to praise Luka Doncic for his playmaking abilities and leadership role at such a young age.

Doncic provides plenty for fans to get excited about moving forward. Halfway through this list and he is making the most of his accomplishments and continues to get better. Imagine Luka in his prime!

5. First teenager to grab a 30-point triple double

As if getting triple doubles was enough for the rookie phenom, “Cool Hand” Doncic needed to add 30 points to that same stat sheet.

In the game against the Toronto Raptors on Jan. 27, 2019 (just six days after his first career triple-double), Doncic dropped 35 points, 12 rebounds, and ten assists as the Mavericks narrowly lost 123-120.

No one in NBA history had ever recorded 30 points to go along with a triple-double as a teenager. Yet Luka was the one to have done that. He wasn’t just interested in breaking achievements, he wanted to create new records! The Slovenian just can’t contain himself.
