Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic lets fans know the team’s goal for next season

The Dallas Mavericks were eliminated from the playoffs with their game six loss to the LA Clippers. Luka Doncic kept them in the game with 38 points, but it was not enough on Sunday afternoon.

Dallas played the final three games of their season without Kristaps Porzingis. The Unicorn tore his meniscus in game one. He played through the injury for two more games before being ruled out. KP does not want to have surgery, but all options are on the table.

The future is bright in Dallas. Luka Doncic is a 21-year-old superstar and one of the five best players in the NBA. The 25-year-old Porzingis gives the Mavs a second star. They are just one or two pieces away from being title contenders. Doncic let fans know the team’s goal for next season.
