Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic is set to rock new shoes during NBA Disney
The Dallas Mavericks need Luka Doncic in Orlando. No player may be more important to their team than the 21-year-old superstar. Doncic is the Mavs top scorer, ball-handler, and playmaker. He also provides rebounding and so much more.
Jalen Brunson being out with a shoulder injury plays a role here too. The Mavericks would have to turn to J.J. Barea, Trey Burke, or Delon Wright as their starting point guard if Luka misses time in Orlando. Combined the three would struggle mightily to match the production of the Mavs superstar.
Kristaps Porzingis would have to take on more scoring responsibilities with Seth Curry and Tim Hardaway Jr. sharing on some of the playmaking. It is a nightmare scenario for Dallas.
Mavs fans should not worry. Luka Doncic is healthy and ready to hit the ground running in Orlando. The Mavericks arrive on Wednesday. Expect Doncic to be leading the charge at their first full-team workout on Friday. Supporters may see something different too.
Dallas Mavericks superstar Luka Doncic will be wearing new kicks in Orlando
The four-month hiatus allowed time for new shoes galore to hit the market. That means many top players will be rocking the latest models in Orlando. Luka will be wearing the Jumpman Diamond Low PE from Jordan Brand. He wore a pair to practice that featured his new logo on the tongue. Fans can see the new kicks here.
Doncic will be changing up the shoes often. Mavericks supporters know he often switches them mid-game if things are not going well. Expect that to continue in Orlando.
The eight seeding games in Orlando is a small sample size. Do not be surprised to see Luka Doncic produce some ridiculous numbers. He could be averaging like a 35-point triple-double per game heading into the playoffs. The 21-year-old will be ready to lead the Mavs on a deep playoff run. Fans can bank on that.
