Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic had a historically great rookie season, and the Mavs posted a video that sums it up in one minute.

Dallas Mavericks guard Luka Doncic came to the NBA with four years of professional experience at Real Madrid. It allowed him to hit the ground running during his rookie season.

Luka looked the part from opening night. He had 26 points in his second NBA game. Doncic had his first 30-point night seven contests into the year. He had eight triple-doubles in his first season. Luka is still 20 years old and already producing like one of the NBA’s premier players.

The Dallas Mavericks sent out a video on Twitter summing up Doncic’s rookie season in a minute. It is a must see clip which fans enjoy below.

Luka Doncic appears to be a lock to win Rookie of the Year. The award will be presented during the NBA awards ceremony on June 24.

Mavs fans watched Luka’s impressive play all season. They know his talent and size is a rare combination. Bobby Karalla sent out a few tweets on Thursday that put Doncic’s play into historical context, though. Supporters can read them below.

Luka is trending toward elite status. That is not something Mavericks fans should take lightly. The team has a special talent that only figures to improve over the length of his rookie deal which is a scary thought for the rest of the league.

Final thoughts

Dallas Mavericks lead ball handler Luka Doncic was unbelievable this season. The Mavs found a way that sums up his year in one minute. That was definitely not easy. The NBA released his full 14-plus minute highlight video which fans can enjoy below.

The Mavericks will be looking to give Doncic a bit of help this offseason. They traded for Kristaps Porzingis at the deadline, but the organization has cap space to add more. Expect the front office to find a way to add pieces this summer.
