Why Dallas Mavericks fans should be happy: 2. Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis

The Mavs have one of the best young duos in the league. Doncic and Porzingis may even be at the top. In an era where you need multiple stars to compete, it is scary to think about how good the Mavericks will become. Fans better sit back and enjoy the ride because they have two of the most special talents in the NBA.

Luka Doncic became the youngest player to record a 30-20-10 triple-double and is one of only four players to ever pull it off. Not only are his stats amazing, but many of his plays are jaw-dropping. Luka successfully completed a through the legs assist to Maxi Kleber in overtime when being guarded by reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo on Saturday night.


Luka and KP are both averaging over 30 points and ten rebounds per game in the bubble. Imagine what would happen if Dallas receives consistency from a third scorer.

To the dismay of many Knicks fans, Kristaps Porzingis is arguably looking better than he did before his injury. Also, while the Kings struggle in the bubble, their fans can only dream of an alternate universe where they drafted Luka Doncic over Marvin Bagley III.

Luckily for the Mavericks, KP just signed a long-term extension and Luka is still on his rookie contract. These stars are not leaving any time soon. Things in Dallas could be much less promising, so do not overreact to every loss.
