Dallas Mavericks celebrate Luka Doncic with unbelievable downtown work of art
Dallas Mavericks superstar Luka Doncic outperformed all expectations in the 2019-2020 season. Fans were hoping he could build on his Rookie of the Year campaign, but nobody expected him to be inside the top ten in the NBA in points and assists per game, while finished 17th in rebounds. Doncic was an All-Star starter, first-team All-NBA selection, and finished fourth in the MVP voting as he led the Mavericks back to the playoffs for the first time since 2016.
The 21-year-old played his best basketball in the playoffs. He set the record for most points in playoff debut by dropping 42 in Game 1. Luka struggled with foul trouble in Game 2 but still managed to produce 28 points in just over 28 minutes. The Mavericks star injured his ankle in Game 3, and fans feared the worst. Luka came back in Game 4 with a 43-point triple-double including hitting the game-winning buzzer-beater in overtime. It is a performance and a shot that Mavericks supporters will never forget.
Dallas lost the series in six games, but Doncic proved his superstar status in his first NBA playoff experience. The Mavericks celebrated his incredible second season. Let us take a look at how.

Mavs owner Mark Cuban posted a photo on his Instagram story of the piece. The team celebrated Luka being named first-team All-NBA by producing an incredible work of art in downtown Dallas. Fans can see it here courtesy of Brad Townsend.
Doncic is more than deserving of the honor. He became the second Maverick in team history to earn first-team All-NBA honors. Dirk Nowitzki was not named to that team until his seventh NBA season. Doncic is ahead of schedule in becoming an all-time great.
Dallas Mavericks fans should be excited about the future. There is going to be a lot of wins and broken records with Luka Doncic leading the way. Do not miss it.
