Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic is the master of the step back. The NBA released a video of his best ones on May 14 for fans to enjoy.

Dallas Mavericks fans are missing basketball right now. Luka Doncic had the team back in contention after a superstar turn in his second NBA season. The 21-year-old is among the NBA’s elite already.

Doncic’s patented step back jumper has become a favorite of Mavs fans. He is willing to bust it out against anyone. It is a thing of beauty when Luka is feeling it.

The NBA did Dallas Mavericks supporters a solid by putting together all of the best step backs from his two seasons in the league. Enjoy it.

The step back continues to be Luka’s most efficient jumper. He was 87 of 243 on them this season. That is 35.8 percent. It is important to remember that Doncic virtually eliminated the mid-range from his game this season. He attempted just 81 shots from 10 feet to the 3-point line. Doncic had 1,111 field goals on the year.

Fans should be excited about the next evolution of Doncic’s game. This season, he committed to attacking the rim, avoiding the mid-range, and improving his left hand. The 21-year-old will continue to work on his 3-point shooting and defense. Mavericks supporters can expect him to be improved when basketball returns.

Hopefully, the 2019-2020 season can be salvaged safely. Gaining that first playoff experience is valuable to a young squad. Luka and Kristaps Porzingis need that. They are on pace to qualify. All they are waiting for is the actual games. The lack of fans in the stands could have some impact, but the contests will still hold the same importance.
