The Dallas Mavericks are climbing back up the mountain. They were fortunate to have Dirk Nowitzki leading the way for two decades. He lifted them to a championship and 15 postseason appearances in his historic career. Now, Luka Doncic is leading the team. The 22-year-old superstar is on a historic pace, and things should only improve.
The Mavericks have made two straight playoff appearances. Doncic has taken his game to another level in both series, but the supporting cast around him has not been enough to get past the LA Clippers. Dallas needs to upgrade their roster this offseason, so Luka can make his first deep postseason run.
Mavs fans know that Doncic is always breaking records and becoming the youngest player in league history to accomplish a feat. His latest was becoming the youngest to make first-team All-NBA twice. That is just one of the many reasons Dallas County made July 6, 2021, Luka Doncic Day. Here is a closer look at the honor.
Dallas County honors Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic with his own day
Tamara Jolee broke the accomplishment down for fans on Twitter.
Luka just added another accomplishment to his incredible list over the weekend. He led Slovenia to the Olympics for the first time in the nation’s history. His native country has a population of just over 2 million people. There are 7.5 million people that live in the DFW alone. With Doncic leading the way, Slovenia has a chance to grab a medal in Tokyo later this summer.
Dallas Mavericks fans should go out and celebrate Luka Doncic day on Tuesday. Tweet us your favorite moment from his first three seasons in the NBA. Be thankful that Luka plays for the Mavs. The best is yet to come from both the 22-year-old superstar and the team. Keep it locked to The Smoking Cuban for all the latest.
