Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic shared that he worked on improving everywhere this summer, but he gave fans a bit more on the Mavs.com broadcast.

Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic is back for his second season. The team begins practice on Tuesday and the regular season opener is just over three weeks away.

Excitement among Mavs fans has not been at this level for years. The reigning Rookie of the Year is a massive reason.

It was helped by the addition of Kristaps Porzingis. The 7’3 big man gives the Mavs a second All-Star caliber talent with a unique skill set. Their young star duo will be attempting to build chemistry during training camp.

Doncic put in work

Luka’s improving is the main cause of excitement among supporters, though. The 20-year-old had a historic rookie season, but his age suggests he should continue getting better. Doncic could increase his shooting efficiency, limit turnovers, and continue growing into a leader this season.

A popular question for the young star at Media Day was what did he improve this offseason? Luka said numerous times including in this interview that aired on NBA TV that he worked on “everything”. The 20-year-old gave a bit more on the Mavs.com broadcast, though. He mentioned he was working on his “left hand”.

Fans should be excited about that tidbit. No word yet on if Luka is planning on doing more passing or shooting with his left, but it could certainly add a new dimension to his diverse offensive skill set. That is something to watch this season. It may not be a massive part of Doncic’s game, but an added element could pay dividends.
