SportsBetting.com place Doncic as the favorite to take home the top individual honors next season at 4-1.

No player since Larry Bird in 1984-1986 has won three straight MVP awards meaning Giannis Antetokounmpo is unlikely to take home the honors in 2021. Can LeBron James or Stephen Curry jump back up and win the award? Do we see a first-time winner like Luka or Anthony Davis?

Doncic could average a 30-point triple-double per game next season. He is working on his game as we speak. Expect to see improved 3-point and free throw shooting plus another step forward on the defensive end. The 21-year-old will be impossible to stop.

Dallas Mavericks fans should be excited about the upcoming season. Luka Doncic will lead the team back to the playoffs as they look to make a deep run. Doncic could take home MVP honors too. Never count him out. It promises to be fun, so do not miss it.
