The Dallas Mavericks finished fifth in the Western Conference, thanks to an incredible season from Luka Doncic. The 22-year-old added a deadly mid-range game and improved his 3-point shooting to become an unstoppable offensive force. Luka averaged 27.7 points, 8.0 rebounds, 8.6 assists, and 1.0 steal per game this season on 47.9 percent shooting from the field. Doncic took his game to another level in the playoffs, but the Mavericks lost in the first round.
Luka’s regular-season performance earned him first-team All-NBA honors for the second straight year. He made history with selection. Doncic is now the youngest to ever be on the first team twice.
The Mavericks celebrated by hanging a massive mural of Luka on Crown Plaza in downtown Dallas. Here is a closer look.

All Luka cares about is winning, which is why the Mavericks need to do a better job building the roster around him. Keeping him in Dallas will take the team being title contenders every season. Can the Mavs make that happen?
It is a massive offseason for the organization. They have to hire a new president of basketball operations and a new head coach before trying to improve the roster this summer. The new front office must put the correct pieces around Luka Doncic if they want to contend for a championship, but that won’t be easy.
