Dallas Mavericks must make Luka Doncic happy to keep him long-term

The superstar players have all the power in the NBA right now. They decide which team they want to play for and nearly always get their wish. For the Mavs to keep Luka, they are going to have to keep him happy. That means taking his input and making changes if things are not working for the 22-year-old superstar.

Notice that Doncic was the first name on that list. It has to stay that way. The Dallas Mavericks have to do everything they can to keep him happy. They are not getting another Luka. The 22-year-old is on pace to be an all-time great. The Mavs need him more than anyone else in the organization. Keeping him for his entire career will not be easy, but it should be the goal.
