Dallas Mavericks: Happy 21st Birthday Luka Doncic
Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic turns 21 years old on Feb. 28. Here is a look at a few amazing stats that he accomplished so far.
The Dallas Mavericks traded up to select Luka Doncic in the 2018 NBA Draft. They wanted to get their guy. It cost the Mavs two first round picks, but they happily paid the price. They have not regretted the decision since.
Doncic went on to win Rookie of Year. He displayed his superstar talent last season when the Mavericks traded away Dennis Smith Jr. and put the ball in his hands. Over the final 23 games, Luka averaged 22.9 points, 9.7 rebounds, and 7.1 assists per game.
He came back for his second season and was immediately better. Doncic is driving to the basket more in year two which has improved his efficiency and turned the Mavericks into an all-time great offense.
Luka Doncic turns 21 years old on Friday. He is already an All-Star starter, Rookie of the Year, and holder of plenty of records. It has been a wild ride since Luka joined the Mavericks. He puts up a tremendous stat line every game. Bobby Karalla tweeted this on Thursday afternoon.
Doncic has only played in 47 games this season. The Mavs have won 31 of those. That is a 54-win pace over a full season. Luka leads the NBA with 13 triple-doubles, and he has already tied the Mavericks record with 21 in 119 career games.
The best part is Luka Doncic is only going to improve. The Mavericks star will keep getting better every day. Hopefully, it is a Happy Birthday for Luka. The Mavs are in Miami and face the Heat on Friday night. Expect him to go off to celebrate.
