He is ready to put on a show in Orlando. Luka will get his first NBA playoff experience in the bubble. The 21-year-old plans on proving he is one of the league’s elite talents. Read why Doncic will be the NBA’s best player in Orlando here.

Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic seventh in ESPN’s top 50
Luka grabbed the seventh spot in the rankings. He was just behind Joel Embiid and Anthony Davis.
Doncic has been better than both players this season. The 21-year-old was undersold slightly here. Luka is a top-five player in the NBA right now. He does not plan on sitting in that spot long. Doncic has his eye on being the league’s best soon.
Kristaps Porzingis found himself 24th on ESPN’s list. He was ranked just behind Zion Williamson, Donovan Mitchell, and Bam Adebayo.
Fans could make the case that KP should be ahead of all three players. Porzingis has a shot to vault into the top 20 by producing massive numbers in the playoffs during NBA Disney. There is no question about his talent. It is the consistency and health that hold KP back. He could put both to rest in Orlando.
