Why Dallas Mavericks can win it all: 1. Luka Doncic

Every NBA champion has a superstar at the top. The Mavericks have one in Luka Doncic. The 21-year-old may not seem ready for the biggest stage, but his history in Europe says otherwise. Doncic led Slovenia to a EuroBasket championship in 2017. He was Real Madrid’s starting point guard in 2018 when they won the EuroLeague and Spanish ACB. Doncic took home MVP honors in both competitions. Luka is no stranger to winning.

It will be his first NBA playoff experience, but Doncic has seen massive stages. Fans know it is difficult to raise his heartbeat. Luka is always under control and playing at his pace. That will be a plus for Dallas during the NBA’s restart.

Doncic is in the thick of the MVP conversation this season. He has proven his superstar status. The next step in developing into a legend is playoff success. It could come sooner than expected too. Here is an in-depth look at why Luka Doncic will be the best player in Orlando.
