By Tyler Watts
Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic continues to be unbelievable. For his birthday, the Mavs put together a highlight package that is must-see.
Dallas Mavericks fans cannot get enough Luka Doncic. He turned 20 on Feb. 28. Luka is well on his way to reaching superstar status.
Doncic is averaging 20.9 points, 7.3 rebounds, 5.7 assists, 2.5 3-pointers made, and 1.0 steal per game in 32.2 minutes a night. He is one of five rookies in NBA history to average over 20 points, five rebounds, and five assists per game. That list includes two Hall of Famers Michael Jordan and Oscar Robertson. The other members are future first-ballot Hall of Famer LeBron James and Tyreke Evans. That is elite company for Doncic.
Mavs fans all over were celebrating Luka’s 20th birthday on Thursday. The team put together a highlight package that is absolutely must-see. It shows that Luka Doncic is more than astonishing stats. His play truly speaks for itself, so enjoy the reel below.
Only getting better
Since Jan. 25, Doncic is stepping his game up further. He is averaging 25.3 points, 9.4 rebounds, 7.5 assists, and 3.0 3-pointers made per game over those 11 contests. Luka is running the show more and those numbers should only continue to improve.
Doncic averaging over 25 points per game with seven rebounds and seven assists for the season would place him in a category with just LeBron. James Harden is the only other player even close to those thresholds.
Expect Luka to take home the Rookie of the Year award this season. Then next year, he should make the leap into All-Star and All-NBA status. Hopefully, the wins follow for the Dallas Mavericks. The team will continue to build around Doncic, and that should push them up the standings.
Luka Doncic becoming a superstar and the Mavericks contending is the future that Dallas fans dream about at night. Luckily, it may be closer to reality than they realize. Stay tuned to see the growth of Luka and the improvements of the Mavs.
