Dallas Mavericks rookie Luka Doncic can do more than ball out on the basketball court. He recently showed off his prediction skills.

Dallas Mavericks point forward Luka Doncic went from rookie to star this season. Fans were expected him to play well, but nobody thought he would produce a historically significant opening season.

Despite being an NBA rookie, Luka is an experienced professional basketball player. He played four seasons for Real Madrid in the second best league in the world. Doncic was used to the longer schedule and facing difficult competition. That undoubtedly made the transition to the NBA easier.

Luka did not just play for Real Madrid. He was their star player during the 2017-2018 season. Doncic won the EuroLeague and Liga ACB MVP awards.
