Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic is playing out of his mind right now. It prompted Hall of Famer Tracy McGrady to offer up massive praise. Here is a look at what he said.

The Dallas Mavericks are playing their best basketball of the season right now. They have won three straight including a 48-point victory over the Golden State Warriors in their last game.

The hot run and the Mavs impressive start have been fueled by Luka Doncic. The 20-year-old is taking the superstar turn. He is averaging 29.9 points, 10.6 rebounds, and 9.4 assists per through 14 games this season. Doncic has been unstoppable. He is getting to the rim at will and fooling defenders with his playmaking ability on a nightly basis.

Luka had back-to-back triple-doubles with over 35 points in his last two games. That prompted the NBA to release this massive highlight video.

Luka Doncic is performing at an unprecedented level for a 20-year-old. He is also leading the Dallas Mavericks into the playoff hunt. That has pundits across the NBA talking about Luka. Let us take a look at some interesting comments from a Hall of Famer on Nov. 21.

T-Mac offers high praise for Luka

Zach Lowe and Tracy McGrady joined Rachel Nichols on ESPN’s The Jump to talk about Doncic’s historic triple-double against the Warriors. McGrady offered plenty of praise for Luka including calling him “the best point guard in the game right now”.  Mavs supporters can listen to his comments here.

That praise is something special. McGrady is a Hall of Famer. The seven-time All-Star was one of the NBA’s best and most exciting players in the early 2000s. He also is not reactionary in his analysis. T-Mac needs to see sustained production to believe.

Those watching Luka fall in love quickly. He can do it all on the court. Doncic has this way of never having a bad game. Even on an off night, he is still putting up 20 points, seven rebounds, and seven assists. It is incredible the level the Mavs star has already reached.

The sky is the limit for Luka Doncic. Dallas Mavericks fans should be thankful they get to enjoy his talent on a nightly basis for the next decade-plus.
