Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic is hoping to make his first All-Star team in 2020. Here is how the guard can accomplish that feat.

The Dallas Mavericks are seemingly one of the few teams not done making moves this summer. After missing out on Danny Green to the Lakers, the Mavs still have cap space available.

Their roster still has holes too. Perimeter defense, secondary playmaking, shooting, and defense are all areas where the Mavericks could stand to make improvements. The Mavs acquiring Delon Wright helped in some of those areas, but shooting is still a significant question mark for Dallas.

The silver lining in the Mavs’ summer struggles is still that they pulled off improbable trades for both Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis. Doncic and Porzingis have the potential to be the league’s best duo if they can continue to grow their games individually and together.

Porzingis was an All-Star in 2018. Doncic came up just short last season after absolutely dominating the fan vote. Making the All-Star game in the Western Conference is no easy task. The conference has maybe never been more talented as a whole in the history of the NBA.

For Doncic to make his All-Star debut in 2020, a lot of things will have to go right for the young Slovenian. Based off of Luka’s historically productive rookie season, qualifying for his first All-Star game should be within reach. If anyone can somehow overcome the competition in just his second season, it is Luka Doncic. Here is a look at how he can become an All-Star in 2020.
